Arguments between siblings and other children are part of your child’s development. It’s difficult to see your young child yelling at another, but it’s essential for your child to experience conflict so that they can begin to develop problem-solving skills.

We organize many STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, & Math) based events throughout the year to build connections and relationships within our School and within the community. Our STEAM curriculum teaches children to collaborate, communicate, be creative and think critically, which are 21st century skills that are necessary skills no matter what career path the children choose later on in life.

The Goddard School in Ashburn, VA was selected by Congresswoman Barbara Comstock to recognize our School’s STEAM curriculum and activities. Her office invited our entire Kindergarten class for a visit of the U.S. Capitol. We were absolutely thrilled for this once in a lifetime experience.

When the Kindergarten children meet with Congresswomen Comstock she recognized each one of them as STEAM learners with a Certificate. The children presented her with a poster created by them to thank her and showed her photos of them engaged in STEAM activities. Afterwards, the students toured the U.S. Capitol building.

[05/12/17]   The Week of the Young Child is an annual celebration sponsored by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), the nation’s largest organization of early childhood professionals. The purpose of the Week of the Young Child is to focus public attention on the needs of young children and their families and to support the early childhood programs and services that meet those needs.

During Week of the Young Child we celebrated this special week through the following fun-filled activities.

CHILDREN HELPING CHILDREN: Families donated new toys and puzzles. They were taken to Inova Loudoun Hospital’s pediatric ward in Ashburn.

WHAT MAKES ME SPECIAL BOOK: Parents completed a “what makes me special?” form about their child(ren). Teachers created a “What Makes Me Special Book” which they read to their class during circle time.

CLASS DECLARATION/ KINDERGARTEN CLASS READINGS:
Each classroom created a class declaration. Teachers asked the students what's so great about coming to school and recorded their answers to display. Kindergarten children read to the other classes throughout the day.

PAJAMA DAY/PIZZA PARTY: We had a school wide pajama party and the children had pizza served for lunch.

MAGIC SHOW/ ICE POPS: The children enjoyed a magic show in the morning. For afternoon snack the children were served ice pops in each classroom to celebrate each child.
