Admissions and Enrollment
"I just dropped off J for her last day- and OUR last day. My heart feels so heavy, and I suppose that’s because it is so full. Full of gratitude, full of memories, full of love, and also full of sadness to be leaving now. It’s been 6 years for us"
~A CCG Parent
We are open year round from 7:30am to 6:00pm
Enrollment options for Infants and Toddlers include Monday-Friday, Monday/Wednesday/Friday, or Tuesday/Thursday
All Preschool and PreK/K children attend Monday-Friday for curricular purposes.
All families can choose from full day (7:30am-6:00pm), **NEW** extended school day (8:00am-4:00pm), school day (8:30am-3:30pm) and half day (7:30am-12:30pm). We can also accommodate a hybrid schedule with some longer and some shorter days if desired.
*please see our calendar page for the holiday/school closures*
We welcome applications for admissions year-round, but enroll on an annual basis, meaning that children typically begin attending in September for a 12 month or 10 month enrollment contract. This means that children remain in the same classroom for a full school year, creating consistent and peaceful classroom environments where children, teachers and families are able to build long lasting, meaningful relationships. We maintain a waiting list and do accept new students mid-year should an opening become available.
Our school is located on Rt. 111 on the beautiful campus of Groton School, just minutes from Routes 119, 111, 2A, and the Ayer train station. We serve families from Groton and all the surrounding towns. Priority for admission is given to siblings of current families, children of those employed at Groton School, and children of our own staff and faculty.
*Unfortunately we are not able to accept state vouchers or offer financial aid at this time.
