Offering The Best Childhood Preparation for Social and Academic Success.

Our teachers blend the highest standards in early childhood development with nurturing care.

Mr Bill, Owner In my past professional life, I have worked in Fortune 100 companies managing teams of network analysts, data base administrators and web developers. My wife and I relocated to her home town of Sacramento so our daughters can have the opportunity to grow up near family. During our search for a home, we realized that the preschool options for families in Sacramento were extremely limited.

After researching options available nationwide, we discovered The Goddard School. After visiting schools and talking to owners across the country, we realized that The Goddard School offers the best care and education for our daughters during the critical early childhood learning phase.

Finally, after years of due diligence researching the options and going through a lengthy construction process, we opened our doors as the first Goddard School in Northern California. We are fortunate and blessed to be able to provide quality child care to parents in the greater Sacramento area.

Mrs Jen, Assistant Director I have worked with children for 10 years. Throughout those years, I have worked with children of all ages between 0-8 years old!

I love being able to help children grow! I cherish being able to help them learn their ABC’s, 123’s and how to write- all in preparation for Kindergarten. I want the children in my class to leave, not just prepared for Kindergarten, but also prepared for life!

Miss Camie, Lead Teacher I have worked with infants for the past 10 years and really enjoy watching and participating in their first year of development and growth. It is extremely rewarding for me to be part of their lives during this exciting and important time, So much happens during their first year of their life and I take pride in being a part of their development. I look forward to meeting your child and working with your family.

Ms Marvinia, Lead Teacher I attended Folsom Lake College with a major in Early Childhood Education. Some of the course work I took in addition to the core ECE units included: Infant Development, Children’s Health and Safety and Nutrition, Culture and Diversity in the classroom.

I love watching our children develop into productive individuals. As teachers, we spend almost as much time with the children as their parents, so we have to be our best so they are encouraged to be their best.
