We offer free high quality professional development opportunities to teachers in preschools, daycares and home care providers. Our monthly Roundtable series is held monthly, on the 3rd Tuesday of each month and rotates to visit different centers in the community. Last year we had over 300 hours of professional development for our local teachers. We provide a light dinner and welcome anyone in the Branford provider community to attend. RSVP's are appreciated so we know food and room accommodations.
