School Notes

  • School-ready: By going above and beyond any state and local education requirements, Goddard School teachers help students become academically proficient and ready for elementary school. When your child`s first-grade teacher asks a question, your child will be better prepared to answer it; 
  • Career-ready: Learning through experience promotes the development of communication, collaboration, creativity and critical-thinking skills. Companies look for these skills in the workforce, so developing those skills early on helps prepare children for success later in life;
  • Life-ready: Encouraging children to discover and explore their interests empowers them to become happy, confident, self-aware, empathetic and self-directed with a lifelong love of learning. Whether your child has an interest in astronomy, writing, cooking or another subject, he or she should develop the drive to independently seek out information to fulfill that curiosity.
  • STEAM learning (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) has become a vital part of early childhood education because these subjects help prepare children for life in the 21st century. STEAM-related jobs are included in the fastest-growing industries in the U.S. economy (Baird-Remba, Guey & Lubin, 2013).
  • The number of STEAM-related jobs is expected to increase by the time your children grow up and join the workforce.We introduce STEAM early on to help children develop an interest in and passion for these subjects, which may encourage them to pursue STEAM-related careers. STEAM learning also helps children develop communication, collaboration, creativity and critical-thinking skills, which are valuable in any career path.
