The Goddard School Come Grow With Us! The early childhood years are a very special time in your child’s development. Great changes occur in this relatively short period of time as children learn to communicate, increase their intellectual awareness, and make great physical strides. In recognition of the crucial importance to these years, the Goddard School has created a program tailored to meet the needs of your child at each stage of development. The Goddard School FLEX Learning Program, based on the latest research in how children learn, provides the optimal environment for each child’s development. Developmental guidelines form the basis of unique lesson plans that are brought to life in fun and imaginative way. Learning centers for dramatic play, creative art, science, blocks, math, computers, and quiet reading provide children the opportunity to explore at their own pace. A low child to teacher ratio ensures the children are meeting the goals to become school ready. Enrichment programs such as Spanish, Sign Language, Yoga, and Fitness are also daily implemented, enhancing the learning experience. The Goddard School offers educational preschool programs starting with children ages 6 weeks to 6 years. Their curriculum is based on the Piaget method of learning through play. Their certified, degreed teachers are dedicated to helping build a firm foundation for children to grow and believe even the youngest child can learn. At the Goddard School all families are encouraged to come and tour the new facility. For more information, visit or call the Goddard-Richmond at 281232-5353 or the Goddard-Sugar Land at 281-491-0313.

Parents have several choices when it comes to the education of their children. Those that visit the International Preparatory School are looking for something very specific. They are searching for a fresh philosophy and a renewed energy in teaching. Smaller class sizes rank as the number one concern. Why? This provides individual attention for students who require more support in some areas while addressing the needs of the gifted child. This all translates into a school where both the teachers and the administration set common expectations in an open, interactive, understanding and energizing manner. Parents want a safe environment that maintains a high standard of discipline and respect, while fostering a strong sense of community through school wide activities for all ages. Emphasis on well rounded education makes participation in extracurricular activities such as music and art an integral part of the everyday curriculum.
