The Goddard School

Welcome to The Goddard School! Our goal is to be a resource for families and a community where parents can share information and learn from each other.

And not just for Earth Day, but year-round! To learn about all of our Root for Earth initiatives and to get realistic tips for busy families, visit www.goddardschool.com/rootforearth!

Be active with your children! Support their mastery of walking by allowing them to be active! Play with them as they learn to run, hop, dance and throw.
