The Goddard School goes beyond just daycare. From infants to kindergarten-age children, highly trained teachers nurture each child to reach developmental milestones while ensuring they become confident, joyful and fully prepared students. Founded in 1988, The Goddard School classrooms feature diverse learning programs, including foreign languages, yoga, world cultures, manners and computer skills. The school has grown into an institution reaching more than 65,000 students in over 50 schools across 37 states.
Goddard schools use current, academically endorsed methods to ensure that children have fun while learning skills that foster success in school and in life. The school’s philosophy is built around STEAM, enrichment, nurturing environments, and safety. Science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics are a vital part of early childhood education and the Goddard School introduces STEAM early in the curriculum.
Their FLEX (Fun Learning Experience) learning program provides a well-rounded learning experience to help each child prepare for school, careers, and life. Students become academically proficient and ready for elementary school. They learn through experiences that promote the development of communication, creativity, and critical-thinking.
