Our Teachers & A Love of Learning

At The Goddard School®, we believe that some of the most profound lessons can happen during everyday moments. Our teachers work with your child’s natural inclination for exploration and investigation to create fun, flexible learning experiences that foster well-rounded development in a safe and caring environment.

Warm, Nurturing & Highly Educated

Learning happens best in a warm and nurturing environment in the care of highly skilled educators. At The Goddard School, all teachers are educated and trained in early childhood education and development. Teachers must pass a detailed background check and have extensive experience within childcare or education. Goddard School teachers are also required to continue their education through professional development opportunities and mandatory training to meet strict local and state licensing regulations.

Learning Outside the Box

At The Goddard School, our philosophy is that learning shouldn’t be one-size-fits-all. Our F.L.EX.® framework (Fun Learning Experience) gives teachers the freedom of flexibility in their lesson plans and teaching style. This allows them the opportunity to take advantage of organic teachable moments that occur in the classroom, and tailor educational experiences to fit individualized interests for a one-of-a-kind approach your little one is sure to love.
