Hi! My name is Heather Grocott, Director of The Children's Workshop here in Lincoln, RI. I first started my journey with the TCW family in 2007 in our Smithfield location as a Kindergarten teacher. I then entered the company's Management in Training Program, working in several of our locations while also training staff in various areas of early childhood education. I made my home in Lincoln in February of 2010 as the Education Coordinator of the site. I am both proud and excited to now serve as the Director of the very first TCW ever established!
I hold a BA from Providence College in Elementary and Special Education as well as a Master's Degree from Rhode Island College in Early Childhood Education. My true passion is not only working with children, but sharing knowledge with families and teachers in order to provide the best early learning experience for all young learners. I am also a member of the National Association for the Education of Young Children, the Rhode Island Childcare Director’s Association, as well as the Rhode Island College Early Childhood Advisory Board. I have had the honor and privilege to deliver presentations at both the local and national levels throughout my career. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, cooking, the beach, and teaching dance.
Please stop by and visit our Lincoln site at any time! I look forward to meeting you!
