Enjoy this Valentine’s Day with your family! Within the limits you set for your child there is never a need for limits on your love. Care and affection don’t spoil a child. In fact, they provide the best teaching model a child could ask for.


Remember tomorrow our classes will be enjoying their Valentine's Parties at 3:00 pm, check the link for our website calendar for upcoming events.


Add some bubbles to your Valentine’s Day celebrations with a heart-shaped bubble wand! Read the full instructions on the Goddard School blog:


The art of parenting is all about learning from the mistakes and going on to the next move. It’s how you and your child grow together and as individuals.


To our amazing Goddard School families, we want you to know that we are open and ready when you need us! Our faculty and staff have been working hard these past few weeks to prepare for us all to transition back to the classroom when—and only when—the time is right for your family.


"What it's like to be a parent: It's one of the hardest things you'll ever do but in exchange it teaches you the meaning of unconditional love.” - Nicholas Sparks


Smiles are back in session! We’re open and ready for your family whenever you feel comfortable to make the transition back to School. We know that the health and safety of your family is your top priority—it’s ours, too.


“For a small child there is no division between playing and learning; between the things he or she does ‘just for fun’ and things that are ‘educational.’ The child learns while living and any part of living that is enjoyable is also play.” ~ Penelope Leach


"Parenthood, it's not a job. It's an adventure!" - Author Unknown


Science is Fun!


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


Hello, I am The Halo Disinfection System®, and I’m kind of a big deal. I’m no ordinary disinfection system. With my trademarked disinfectant solution, HaloMist, I can clean each and every part of our School. My mist nestles into the hardest to reach nooks and crannies, eliminating pathogens, spores and other contaminants. The mist is environmentally friendly and safe. I’m a registered fungicide, bactericide, and virucide, which means that I deactivate and destroy fungus, bacteria and viruses. The moment my mist disperses throughout a room, pathogens are vanquished. And, I don’t mean to brag (yes I do), but I can clean up to 10,000 square feet in approximately one hour. All of this to humbly say that I’m the best offense and defense against germs, viruses, mold and bacteria.


"It's not only children who grow. Parents do too. As much as we watch to see what our children do with their lives, they are watching us to see what we do with ours. I can't tell my children to reach for the sun. All I can do is reach for it myself." - Joyce Maynard 01/24/2021

Children's Books About Inclusion and Diversity | The Goddard School®

In honor of Black History Month, we've compiled this list of 15 books sourced from our Educational Advisory Board as well as Goddard families who also sent us book ideas that they feel support the understanding of inclusion and empathy. These books can help you launch important conversations with your children: Dr. Kyle Pruett and Sue Adair are available to answer your questions on early childhood development, parenting and preschool.


Get out the paper, pencils, crayons and markers and let your children scribble. Scribbling is the foundation of artistic development, language acquisition and written expression. Through their scribbles, children are telling stories and beginning to link writing to self-expression. Practicing and playing with writing can help young children learn to form and recognize letters.


Children, even as young as toddlers, just love to role play. Letting them help out with chores provides valuable life lessons about teamwork, family, responsibility and accountability. How does your child help with chores?


Children are not the only ones making friends when they go off to preschool. Parents are building friendships and support networks in school as well. A great resource for parents is other parents and the best place to find them is at your child’s school!

With all the new toys your children will receive this holiday season, why not help them sort through their old toys and choose items to donate? Giving a toy to a child who is less fortunate helps children learn about the joy that comes from helping others.
