~Hickory Flat/Canton Goddard News~
This month at Goddard we will be collecting Christmas gifts for children in foster care. Our school works with the Cherokee County Secret Santa program and has adopted 9 children in the foster care system. We are so excited to provide a joyful Christmas to these children. 

We will be hosting a Thanksgiving Feast for our families and children on Friday, November 20th. This is a time for our Goddard family to gather around the table and share a meal together. The children will be signing songs and finger plays about Thanksgiving. 

Welcome to The Goddard School located in Hickory Flat/Canton, Georgia! 

We are a SACs Accredited Private Preschool offering care for children ages 6 weeks through Private Kindergarten. Our school also aids in the transition of grade school with our After School enrichment program for children up to age 12.  Our school's mission is to provide a nurturing, positive and structured environment, to build meaningful relationships with our children and their families. Our trained faculty promises to educate your child through playful learning using innovative lesson planning and the latest technology. At the Hickory Flat Goddard School we are dedicated to making our children happy, safe and confident. 

Our facility offers children a unique learning experience that incorporates technology (Promethean, Tadpoles and Ipads) in daily instruction. The low teacher/student ratios allows our teachers to get to know your child and family on the personal level they deserve. Our extracurricular programs each week feature Music by Aunt Jemima, Fit Kids Sports and Ballet by Creative Movement and Dance

The goal at The Goddard School in Hickory Flat/Canton is to develop a love for learning through our F.L.E.X Curriculum and innovative lesson plans created by our dedicated professional staff members.
