The Goddard School

Providing Accredited Kindergarten, Early Childhood Education & Enriching Childcare For Infants - 3rd Grade The Goddard School of Ashburn at Belmont Greene uses the most current, academically endorsed methods to ensure that children have fun while learning the skills they need for long-term success in school and in life.

We believe that children learn best through experience. We embrace this philosophy in our classrooms by helping children explore and discover their interests through play, so they become school-ready, career-ready and life-ready. Since 2008, we have been committed to helping children learn to communicate, collaborate and think critically and creatively in a safe, nurturing learning environment. Our nationally-recognized curriculum is Accredited through AdvancED (SACS CASI), making our programs the best possible start for Ashburn children entering Loudoun County Public Schools! With curriculum covering subject areas of STEAM, Reading, Social Emotional Learning, Physical Development, and various Enrichment programs, Belmont Greene Goddard offers engaging learning for the whole child. Our talented teachers constantly seek training to stay up-to-date on research-based educational best-practices, and also collaborate with parents to nurture children into respectful, confident and joyful learners.

Operating as usual

Parents, as we enter cold and flu season amidst COVID-19, we know you’ll be paying more attention than ever to every cough, ache and sniffle your children exhibit. In this video, learn about how COVID-19 symptoms may differ between adults and little ones, how to react if you think you see these symptoms and more.

As parents, our duty is to foster empathy in our children. We can pay close attention to small acts of kindness our children display, praise them for being considerate and encourage them to speak up when someone is being mistreated. Since bullying is fueled by silence, we can help stop it by teaching our children to treat others kindly and speak up at appropriate times.

Maple and Boston Medical Center pediatrician Dr. Jack Maypole joined WUSA 9 recently to share key lessons they’ve learned keeping our School and your children safe during the pandemic and moving forward. #lessonsfromtheclassroom Sponsored by Goddard Systems, Inc.

Routine provides structure, which is often lacking during the summer when children all too quickly become detached from the lessons they learned throughout the school year. Maintaining a schedule during the summer supports an environment that is less of a contrast to the classroom and provides a healthy balance between building skills, play and rest. How do you keep a routine with your children during the summer?

Language develops with every interaction you have with your child — infants begin by reading their parents’ facial expressions while older children develop their vocabulary by listening and eventually repeating what their parents say. Verbalize your child’s world and he or she will begin to repeat sounds and syllables — be sure to pause, speak and alter conversation style.

Did you know laughter can actually lower stress? It’s true. Laughing helps take our mind off of stressors, relaxes our muscles and helps us to connect with our children, families and friends.

Children learn about important values and concepts from watching you. They see the result of practice and perseverance, and they come to know that learning is a lifelong process. They see that everyone, even a grown-up, can make mistakes and can learn from them.
