We are honored to be the on-site owners of The Goddard School on Theodore Street in Plainfield IL.  We are dedicated to providing the absolute best preschool environment with the highest quality educational child care year round for families in Plainfield, Joliet, Shorewood and the neighboring communities.

Our degreed teachers provide a nurturing learning environment  tailored to meet the social, intellectual, physical and emotional needs of each individual child, far exceeding a typical day care experience. Our play-based curriculum helps prepare the children in our care for academic and social success, and they are having a ton of fun while they are learning!

We are also committed to building a strong sense of family in our school with great events all year long for the children, faculty and all of our families to participate and experience firsthand.

Schedule a tour today and experience the Goddard Difference and why we have been voted BEST CHILD CARE for 7 years in a row!!
