About

Welcome to The Goddard School® for Early Childhood Development! We opened our doors in 1996 as the premier preschool in Mason.

The Goddard School® located in Mason offers a variety of programs convenient for parents who want the proven advantages of a clean, safe, and loving environment with a high quality preschool education for their children.

We have a newly renovated state-of-the-art facility. We also have one of the largest playgrounds in the area, with plenty of room for your child to explore the outdoors.

Our warm, loving atmosphere features both full and part-time programs designed to enhance the emotional, social, intellectual, and physical development of children ages six weeks to ten years. Our student group is very diverse in its makeup with a significant international composition.

Our Ohio state standards-based full-day kindergarten offers a small class size, hands-on learning, individualized attention, and Foreign Language (German). Our small class size enables more one-on-one interactions between each child and the teacher, who is Ohio state certified with a Master’s degree and has been our kindergarten teacher since 2001. In addition, it provides the teacher with greater flexibility to shape the curriculum in order to meet individual children’s learning needs.

In addition to the standard curriculum; American Sign Language, Spanish, Yoga, Art History, a Scholastic literacy program, an enhanced science curriculum, an enhanced social science curriculum, organized Physical Education and a program on Manners are offered.

At our school, each child has the option to have either a prepared warm lunch at the school or a sack lunch from home. We also provide a nutritious morning and afternoon snack.

We also offer a summer program and an after-school enrichment program for children up to ten years of age.

Our teaching staff has over 200 years of teaching experience and the teachers are trained in Elementary Education, Early Childhood Education or Child Development. All teachers are trained in first aid, CPR and communicable disease detection and prevention, and child abuse detection within their first year of employment. Training in these areas remain current throughout the duration of their employment. Many of the teachers have been with our school for several years.

We provide children with carefully planned educational and developmental programs that meet the needs of the “whole” child. The Goddard School® is dedicated to providing the best possible environment for the education and development of your child. Our scores on both the State of Ohio inspections and the Goddard QA Reviews are consistently very high.

We are conveniently located at 754 Reading Road (Route 42), an eighth-of-a-mile south of Tylersville Road. Please contact our school for more specific information on our program, curriculum, and availability of space. We thank you for your interest and look forward to welcoming you and your child into the Goddard family.
