General School Mission

The Goddard School is proud to offer an exceptional learning experience for children ages six weeks to six years that truly sets us apart from other Preschools and Early Childhood Development centers in this area.

The Goddard School offers an enhanced and accredited curriculum designed to prepare your child for Kindergarten and beyond. In addition to teaching cognitive, social, emotional and physical skills in a loving and nurturing environment, we offer a variety of extracurricular enrichment programs. For example, students receive instruction in Yoga, Music Appreciation, Foreign Language, World Culture and many other areas. These extra activities are provided at no additional cost to parents. They are all part of a diverse program designed to help each child become a happy, confident learner and develop a lifelong love of learning.

The Goddard School also offers an energetic and talented group of degreed educators. We have the highest standards for our teachers and this is demonstrated in our programs each and every day.

Our Preschool and Pre-K classrooms offer premium programs taught through the accredited FLEX Learning Programâ„¢. Our lower student to teacher ratios and classroom environment offers individual attention to each student.
