The Children's Workshop, a private child care facility for children ranging from infants to kindergarteners, today opened three new classrooms and a playroom to improve children's gross motor skills at their site on Winter Street in Waltham, company leaders said.
The addition of new classrooms will allow the school to expand into offering private kindergarten and before- and after-school care, two programs it previously did not have.
The new classrooms will be the home to preschool, kindergarten, and before- and after-school classes this fall, and the gross motor space will be available to children from all of the school’s classrooms.
Mayor Jeannette McCarthy yielded ceremonial scissors - with assistance from some of the day care's tykes - at today's ribbon-cutting to introduce the newly renovated facilities.
The Waltham location director Catherine McGuiggan said she looked forward to today's celebration and appreciated the mayor's attendance.
"We are very excited to open our new classrooms and that the mayor was able to attend and help us celebrate," she said. "We have a great family of teachers, children and parents and we are looking forward to a wonderful school year in our beautiful center.”
The Children's Workshop operates 16 centers throughout Rhode Island and Massachusetts, supervising a total of 1,500 children daily.
