    Hello and welcome to The Goddard School of Clarkston. My name is Heidi Marini. My Husband Dave, and I, are extremely excited to bring such a highly accredited school to the Clarkston area. As parents, we know how important it is to have a safe and nurturing environment for our children. We understand the importance of ensuring our children get the best start in life. Our passion for early Childhood Education led us to The Goddard School. Education is not a one size fits all. Children learn at different paces and in different ways. The Goddard School recognizes this and focuses on individual experienced based learning. We are excited to be part of the Clarkston Community and are looking forward to making a difference in the lives of children, their parents, and the community around us. Give us a call today to learn more. We look forward to meeting you!
