The Goddard Difference

Choosing the best educational experience for your child is one of the most important decisions you’ll make. At The Goddard School®, our classrooms are where creativity, curiosity and connections happen. Children get to experience joyful learning in a safe, caring and flexible environment that parents have trusted for over 30 years. 

  • What Makes Us Different

    At The Goddard School, our highly educated and innovative teachers create individualized opportunities for exposure to new ideas and materials designed specifically for your child to embrace authentic learning in its most natural way—through play and exploration. From engaging with science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM) concepts to growing socially and emotionally, Goddard’s safe, flexible and caring environment gives your child the space to take chances, make connections and experience authentic learning so they can become school-ready, career-ready and life-ready.

Classrooms

Children are natural investigators. As infants, they learn to pick up and examine objects and crawl around to explore the world. As they get older, children continue to follow their curiosity and learn through play. We embrace and encourage active exploration in all of our classrooms — from our littlest learners to our Kindergarten super stars.
