The Goddard School in Cumming is simply the best place for young children to learn and grow in the South Forsyth County area. Since 2006 we have been giving Cumming families the confidence of knowing that their children are experiencing the very best physical, emotional, social and intellectual growth available. But don't take our word for it. Schedule your tour today so you can come and see the Goddard Difference first-hand. We can't wait to hear from you!

Owner
Jean Croft is the onsite owner for The Goddard School in Cumming. Known simply as Mama Croft to her 8 grand children, Ms. Jean has been working in early childhood education for more than 40 years, and opened this campus in 2006. This is the only Goddard School that Jean is a part of, and making this place the most loving, nurturing and educational environment for its students is her heartbeat and passion. Several of Jean's grand children started as infants on this campus and went all the way through the Goddard School program before seeing great success in elementary school and beyond. Jean is obviously extraordinarily passionate about working with young children, and it is a joy for her to see them learn and grow so much day after day and year after year. In her spare time you can often find Jean at her grandchildren's ball games in Georgia and around the southeast. Jean hopes to meet you and your family very soon when you come in for your tour of The Goddard School!
