At the Children's Center at Groton, we value community and we work to instill the values of kindness and compassion in the children through our classroom curriculum. To extend these ideals to the greater community, CCG is taking part in the Groton Neighborhood Food Project. Our school community collects non-perishable food items throughout the year, which we donate to Loaves and Fishes, a local food pantry. This becomes part of the classroom curriculum where children discuss with teachers ways to help those in the community as well as things we can do for those who are less fortunate than us. This ties into our school mission of having each child become a socially competent citizen.
You can become a part of the project as well. See grotonfoodproject.com for more information
