At the Children's Center at Groton we view children as competent learners who come to us with ideas and theories and it is our role as educators to facilitate learning along with them through provocations, listening, documenting and asking open ended questions. ​

​We believe that our environments are the third educator in the classroom and as a result design spaces that are respectful, aesthetically pleasing and filled with natural elements.

​​​​​We love, care for, and educate children ages 6 weeks through 6 years of age.​ We take pride in the high teacher to student ratios at our school, choosing to exceed the required number of teachers in all classrooms. We believe this additional teacher allows us to provide the kind of curriculum and one on one attention that young children need to learn and grow successfully. Children​​ progress through our school "cohort" style- further supporting essential bonds with their peers. Our four beautiful classrooms, each with their own age appropriate playground/exterior patio space accommodate each age groups individual needs.
