Atlanta, GA (Grassroots Newswire) January 28, 2013 -- The Goddard School® located at 1080 Spring St in Atlanta (Midtown), GA, is currently under construction. The new state-of-art 8,000 square foot building has been designed to accommodate approximately 125 children from six weeks to six-years-old. The new School is projected to open during the spring of 2013 and will offer flexible schedules for children Monday through Friday, from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
The on-site owner will attend training and will then be available to offer tours of the new School - approximately one month before the Grand Opening. Over the next several months, an Education Director and a faculty of qualified teachers will be hired.
The Goddard School offers a year-round program where children are encouraged to develop at their own pace in a warm environment supported by a team of dedicated teachers. The Goddard School FLEX™ Learning Program is based on a unique learning continuum that encompasses developmental guidelines, formative assessments and child-focused lesson plans that are delivered in a creative and fun environment with a child-centered approach to meet each child’s individual needs. Overseen by a team of Goddard Quality Assurance Representatives and licensed by the state, The Goddard School provides a safe and secure learning environment for children.
