Hello Springfield! I am excited to bring Goddard to this wonderful community.

We are more than a typical daycare; we have partnered with the Island Bay Yacht Club to teach our students the art of sailing, and we will be developing a large "seed to table" learning experience through our greenhouse and garden programs. We also have land to spare and will create a community garden culture.

Students will also learn chess through an exciting curriculum called Chess At Three. We strive to stay on the cutting edge of early childhood education with our 21st Century Skills and STEAM learning initiative.
