    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!

    Education Director
    The field of Early Childhood Education is my passion. I have dedicated my professional career to providing families with exceptional care and education for their children for the past 15 years. My journey started in the classroom as an early childhood educator in kindergarten prep. I have held several different roles within the industry, including teacher, trainer, assistant to the director and director. The Goddard School education model offers children daily experiences in all areas within early child development. This approach to learning sets the stage for each child’s love of learning beyond their early childhood and into their future. I look forward to partnering with families and providing their children with exceptional learning experiences. My favorite children’s books are the Knuffle Bunny series by Mo Willems and The Magic Treehouse series by Mary Pope Osborne. Hobbies: Camping, road trips, rock collecting Education: MAED/Adult Ed & Training, BA Soc, AA ECE
