School Notes

  • The Goddard School in Gaithersburg is a Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) licensed, private preschool which is accredited through the Middle States Association - The Commission on Elementary and Secondary Schools (MSA-CESS).  We accept students as young as 6 weeks of age and we provide programs all the way through our MSDE approved private Kindergarten program.  We also provide Before/After school programs for students who attend local Elementary Schools.  We are a 12 month school providing high quality educational programs for our students.  We begin enrollment for the new school year in January but we have a rolling enrollment policy and will enroll all 12 months out of the year.  This said, it is most likely to get a position for the start of the Summer Session or the new school year if you enroll in the first quarter during the Open Enrollment period.
