Community Lecture

Connecting Parents, Educators & Community Members

One of our goals at Groton Community School is to help families navigate the overwhelming amount of advice that is available, in social media, online, in books, and from personal sources.  Our Community Lectures are opportunities to bring together our current school families and staff, along with other families, educators, and community members regarding a specific topic.  Speakers share information regarding child development, parenting, and early childhood education, and other topics relevant to today’s families.  Past speakers have included authors, psychologists and therapists, occupational therapists, educators, a pediatric dietitian, and more!

Our Community Lecture is on hold temporarily due to COVID-19.  We are looking forward to hosting these events in our newly renovated and expanded facility!

Preschool and the Future of Our Children

We had an incredible  evening event with Author and Journalist Suzanne Bouffard in March!

Suzanne spoke about her book, neuroscience and the latest research on how children learn, and the impact of a high quality early childhood program.
