The Goddard School

Assistant Teacher Position. The assistant teacher supports the Lead Teacher in planning and implementing the daily program for children, supervises the classroom as needed and helps maintain a safe environment where our children can grow.

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.

Operating as usual

After sheltering in place for several months, many families are digging deep into their closets and garages for games that haven’t seen the light of day for months or even years. Find out what your children can learn from playing traditional board games like Go Fish and Candyland:

Besties are the best! One of our favorite things at Goddard is watching friendships form and knowing that many may last a lifetime. Who is your child’s BFF? Share your child’s favorite thing to do with their bestie in the comments as we celebrate #GoddardFamily friendships throughout the week!

Make sunny days even brighter with these colorful suncatchers! Perfect for honing fine motor skills, this project takes the concept of cutting out paper snowflakes to a new level for year-round fun. Get the full instructions on The Goddard School blog:

While we can’t control everything our children see and hear, we can control the messages they consume at home. Here are some ideas for being more mindful about how bodies are discussed in your family:

How do you incorporate physical activity into your baby's day? Explore activities that allow for reaching, rolling, sitting, crawling, pulling themselves up and walking. ‘Tummy Time’ is the perfect opportunity for babies to practice lifting their heads and develop strong muscles.

Sometimes it’s a specific story. Other times, it’s just that good feeling. But what most Goddard parents can agree on is that there was something deep down that told them our School was the perfect fit for their family. What’s your #GoddardFamily moment? Share with us in the comments below!

Keep Outdoor Play Simple: Let Nature Supply the Learning. | The Goddard School®

Try these ideas for simple, quality outdoor activities that you and your children can do together that don’t require supplies or much planning. Dr. Kyle Pruett and Sue Adair are available to answer your questions on early childhood development, parenting and preschool.

Are you looking for a fun activity to do with your children? Go on a treasure hunt! Like a scavenger hunt, create clues that will send the treasure hunters from one hint to the next, eventually ending at the “buried” treasure!

Applying sunscreen during the summer months can be a messy and emotional business, especially if you have a toddler. Here's a simple way to make applying sunscreen a pleasant experience for all!

To build a foundation of good citizenship with your children, foster the essential skills of friendship, compassion, cooperation and kindness. Lead by example and teach your children the significance of helping others.

Our PreK I class is doing a study on balls, and they have a question: What kind of ball does not roll? 😜

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.

Increased amounts of time spent as a family at home provides a great opportunity to help your children understand their roles within your family as well as in the larger community. This article will outline three simple activities that can help your children practice thoughtfulness and empathy both within and outside your home.

As we learn about cooking this week, we are having some yummy hands on action.

“Do I have to wear it?” It’s the question most parents have been answering a lot these days when it’s time for their child to put on face coverings, such as masks. Check out these great suggestions for how you can help your child understand that wearing a face covering right now is just as normal as putting on a pair of mittens in the wintertime!

This Sunday is Father's Day!! We hope our family of dads, step-dads, grandfathers, uncles and fathers-to-be have a wonderful day! How is your family planning to celebrate Father's Day?

We want your family to know how important your needs are to us, which is why we’ve been working hard to ensure you can depend on us to have a safe and healthy space ready for your child whenever you decide the time is right to come back to School! These additional practices will help your child transition back into a healthy, caring and fun learning environment.

Today for messy art we made tie dye shirts!

Give your child the opportunity, as often as possible, to make decisions for themselves. Don’t be afraid to let go of some of the rules. Save “No!” for when it really matters—in the case of safety or something you feel most strongly about.

It’s messy art week at the Goddard School!

Our PreKII class had a blast today!
They released the butterflies that they got to watch going through their metamorphosis. And also had a great time doing some messy art.

Get cooking! Including your child in the kitchen can encourage a more adventurous palate and healthy eating patterns. This is a great opportunity for children to express their creativity and independence; explore new foods; learn about nutrition; enhance their math, reading and science skills; and, most importantly, spend valuable quality time with mom, dad and siblings.

Perfect for breakfast or shared as a snack, this delicious, hearty little recipe is sure to please! The full recipe is available here:

Enjoy the health benefits of yoga with your children! Regular yoga practice helps children become more aware of their inner selves which, in turn, helps them learn to release anger, frustration and fears. The physical fitness and basic movement skills assist in children's spatial awareness, rhythm and creative expression. So stretch, relax and feel good!

Today’s independent moments activity, “Handy Animals,” is perfect for children to engage with while parents focus on their tasks for the day. Turn an outline of a hand into a zany animal! Make more animals with outlines of your fingers or thumbprints.
You’ll need paper, crayons, markers and your imagination. Take a picture, and share it with family members and friends. Don’t forget to check out our blog for some more fun independent moments!

Creative art motivates and engages children in learning, stimulates memory, facilitates understanding, enhances symbolic communication, promotes relationships and provides an avenue for building competence. Encourage art at home as a family activity. Get out the arts and crafts materials and create projects together, create drawings on the computer, or be creative with recycled materials. Your children learn a lot while you create wonderful family memories.

When you need a moment or two and you’d like your child to do something fun, ask your child to try one of these instant playful learning activities.

Does your toddler carry a favorite stuffed animal or blankie? Their attachment to this beloved object is normal—and can even be helpful! These “lovies” allow your little one to soothe him or herself in stressful moments and provide comfort or courage. The feeling of security is so important for a child during the transitional time of toddlerhood.

This Sunday is Mother's Day and we want to wish all moms a very happy Mother’s Day! Everyone at The Goddard School sees firsthand your love for your child, the hard work you put in to make every day great, the hugs and smiles and all the little gestures that show you care. Nothing shows how special you are more than your child’s joy.

Attention parents! Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and the most special gifts are those made by the hands of your tiny tots. Here’s a craft idea to help your child create a special keepsake for mom. Check out the full instructions on our blog:
