School Owner Welcome! My name is Mrs. Debbie. I am the proud Owner of the Goddard School, located in historic Crabapple. We are conveniently located near Crabapple Crossing Elementary School. I attended The University of Miami beginning in my Junior year in High School completing laboratory research in Animal Behavior. My husband Stephen and I have three children, Stephanie, CJ and Nina who all help us operate a safe, small setting, neighborhood school. Our incorporated name…”Childhood- The Joy of Being”, utilizes the initials of my son - for it is truly through his eyes that I have enjoyed the spontaneity of education and learning all over again! We pride ourselves in recognizing the uniqueness of each child and strive daily to provide honest and open communication with our families. I enjoy being on the cutting edge of education for our Preschoolers by offering such programs as Sign Language, Sensory Integration, FLEX Learning, Healthy meals prepared on site, and Children's Progress Academic Assessment. The Goddard School located in Historic Crabapple utilizes a multisensory approach for maximizing learning FUNdamentals! Our extracurriculars include Sports,Spanish and Music (included in tuition). We also contract with other companies for Drama, Dance, TumbleBus, Handwriting and Drums. Speech and OT are available on site at cost. Our Goddard School Crabapple/Alpharetta 2 has been open for 17 years.
