The Goddard School

Providing Accredited Early Childhood Education & Chidcare For Infants - Kindergarten

Welcome to The Goddard School! Our goal is to be a resource for families and a community where parents can share information and learn from each other.

Learning language is a natural process. Introducing young children to second languages such as Spanish, French and sign language encourages brain development. Second languages also help celebrate cultural diversity and create an understanding of the written word. The earlier a child is exposed to another language, the likelier the child will become fluent in that language.

When you're at The Goddard School @ Belmont Greene, you're family!

Social and emotional learning is shown to support the development of attitudes and skills that impact lifelong academic performance and interpersonal skills:

Blast off into the cosmos, create a masterpiece and more during STEAM National Engineers Open House from February 18th to February 21st, 10am to 12pm! Experience our play-based learning program in action and see how STEAM learning prepares children for success in school and in life.

We prepare children for success by sparking their imaginations with fun STEAM activities! Visit us during STEAM National Engineers Open House from February 18th to February 21st, 10am to 12pm to experience these activities firsthand.

Learning is powered by STEAM and fueled by fun at The Goddard School! Find out what STEAM means and experience our play-based learning program in action at our STEAM National Engineers Open House from February 18th to February 21st, 10am to 12pm.

Our children come to us with a fresh look at life, full of uniqueness, purity and innocence. Consider what our children can teach us, or remind us of, if we only let them. Our children can remind us what love is—true, unconditional love. They can remind us to look for joy in the smallest places. They can remind us to laugh and to laugh often—it lowers stress and it’s good for the soul. What does your child teach you?

Experience how we prepare children for success by sparking their imaginations through thoughtfully designed, fun activities at our STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) National Engineers Open House from February 18th to February 21st, 10am to 12pm.

At the Goddard School, every child is a scientist! During our daily Circle Time, students observe the weather. We love learning about the world around us!

Visit us from February 18th to February 21st to see how we use our play-based curriculum to introduce STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) concepts to help children develop a passion for STEAM learning. Our STEAM National Engineers Open House will be held from 10am to 12pm.

Calling all former Goddard School students! It's time to apply for the 2020 Anthony A. Martino Scholarship. This $10,000 award is given to a high school senior who graduated from The Goddard School and who demonstrates the work ethic and perseverance that exemplifies Martino's commitment to career, family and community. Apply at www.goddardschool.com/scholarship by March 13.

Experience how we prepare children for success by sparking their imaginations through thoughtfully designed, fun activities at our STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) National Engineers Open House from February 18th to February 21st, 10am to 12pm.

According to researchers, imaginary friends may appear due to a change in your child’s life, for example, a new sibling or a new home. They could also be your child’s way of learning to express his emotions and understand roles and relationships. As a result, your child may blame his naughty behavior on his imaginary friend. Do not make a big deal out of it. Simply explain to your child why the behavior is unacceptable.

Grab your goggles, put on your thinking caps and head to The Goddard School because it’s time to explore STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics)! We will be hosting a STEAM National Open House from February 18th to February 21st, 10am to 12pm.

We love reading outside when the weather is nice!

Did you know that a student who reads 20 minutes per day will be exposed to approximately 1,800,000 words per year, while a student who reads for 1 minute per day will only be exposed to 8.000?

At the Goddard School @ Belmont Greene, we foster early literacy with licensed educators and engaging reading materials!

Most people respond better to positively communicated direction. This is especially true for children. Try telling your child what they can do instead of what they can’t. Practice the positive alternatives to avoid overusing the word “no” while maintaining reasonable limits. For example, “Grandma is worried about us getting stains on her couch. Let’s enjoy our snack in her kitchen instead,” will generate more cooperation than “No food or drinks in Grandma’s living room.”

[01/23/20]   Thank you for following our page! Recently, you may have seen a post promoting a Winter Wonderland open house for this Saturday, January 25 and be wondering where it went. That post was in error, and while we aren’t hosting an event this weekend, we encourage you to call us to schedule a tour.

We’ll be sure to keep you updated on future events at our School, and we hope to see you there! 😊

Laughter is good for the soul…and learning! Fun actually promotes learning; so, laugh, learn and have fun with your children!

Blocks, a cardboard box, an empty egg carton—these simple objects are some of the props that can help your child’s imagination grow! Blocks become a skyscraper, a cardboard box becomes a clubhouse and an egg carton becomes a caterpillar crawling along the forest floor. What are some of your child’s favorite props for imaginative play?

"Year's end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on, with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us." - Hal Borland. Happy New Year!

This is a great time of year to snuggle up with your little one and share in the adventures of a good book. Children of all ages will benefit from this quality time with you and their imaginations will soar with every turn of the page. Share a book (or two!) that has created fond memories for you and your child!

The holiday season often means lots of travel with your family. Prepare your children for these special trips by reading some of the books on this list. These stories feature planes, trains, cars and relatives like grandparents to help your children learn what to expect.

Family traditions allow you to experience the true joy of family life! Make the most of your traditions – they make your family unique and can magically turn a collection of individuals into a stronger, more robust group of people. Share some of your holiday family traditions!

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving – and there is so much to be thankful for! Get in the spirit of the holiday and make a list with your family. What do you think your little ones will say they are thankful for?

We all want our children to be happy, well liked and good toward others. There are some basic things we can do that set a strong foundation for these pursuits and support our children’s social skills.

Happy World Kindness Day! Show your child that random acts of kindness don't have to be random. Kindness can also be just good manners. Say 'hello,' hold the door for someone or lend a helping hand.

Congratulations to Emily and our Kindergarten Class- Magnificent Mountains, for winning the Pumpkin Decorating Contest! Monster's Inc. stole the hearts of everyone!

We have the cutest pumpkins in the patch!! Thank you to our amazing chaperones who helped to make our field trip a success!

Fostering respect and manners as well as establishing expectations, limits and consequences is good preparation for any public outing. Take advantage of teachable moments and be sure to reinforce the rules you have set. Acknowledge good behavior with a simple “thank you”. Positive reinforcement instills pride and motivates children to make good behavior a habit. With a little help, your child may develop into a much friendlier companion, guest and citizen at home as well as in public.

Have you tried growing a plant with your child yet? We love to take care of our classroom plants at The Goddard School! ❤️

Work to the soundtrack of children giggling – become a Goddard School teacher! Use your talents and expertise to create fun, engaging activities that empower children to become happy, lifelong learners.
