School Notes

  • The Goddard School uses its play-based F.L.EX. Learning Program (Fun Learning Experience) to introduce STEAM concepts (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) to help children develop a strong foundation for their future education and a passion for STEAM learning. By including the arts, we encourage children to communicate, collaborate and think critically and creatively, skills essential to all careers.  
  • Children with strong critical-thinking and problem-solving skills are more likely to be motivated to achieve academically and less likely to be negatively influenced; 
  • Children who express themselves creatively show less frustration, a joy for learning and an appreciation for other perspectives; Executive function skills, such as planning, organizing and strategizing, help children develop self-regulation, inhibitory control, working memory and cognitive flexibility, which allow children to learn new ideas and develop their social-emotional capabilities; 
  • Developing communication skills through fun and collaborative methods fosters a sense of self-esteem and enables healthy emotional development. 
  • We work closely with both Perkiomen Valley and Spring-Ford school districts to make sure the transition from our school to elementary school is as seamless as possible. Our Kinder-Enrichment program picks up where the school districts' half day program leaves off. We are a bus stop for Evergreen, Schwenksville, and Evans Elementary Schools.

As the COVID-19 virus spreads throughout the United States, we look at steps schools and parents can take to protect themselves from this highly contagious virus.
Our children's education is a critical concern. That's why we elected to send our kids to private school in the first place. However, this COVID-19 virus is controlling everything. And it will continue to do so indefinitely until we have vaccines to protect us. With that in mind, here are five things you need to do when you are a parent with children in private school during this horrific pandemic.
Now that school has safely reopened, what can we parents do to support and encourage the schools we care about so much?
