Introducing Hardin Valley’s The Goddard School

By Anoula McCarren

The Goddard SchoolAs the daughter of immigrant parents who owned and operated a small business as I was growing up, I’ve experienced entrepreneurship on many different levels. But never did I imagine the response that we have received from parents since my husband, Don, and I launched The Goddard School here in Hardin Valley. While it is the goal of every business owner to satisfy their customers, it’s difficult to express the overwhelming and positive response we receive from our students’ parents.

“Matthew has enjoyed every single day, has grown both emotionally and developmentally, and has developed many great friends that we hope to see in kindergarten,” said Matthew’s mom, Nicole. “Thank you for the great work you do and the tremendous amount of patience and love you have for our children. Our family will treasure the memories as our youngest journeys to kindergarten well prepared.”

I truly believe that one of the greatest rewards that I and our team of trained professionals receives is the knowledge that, in our warm and nurturing environment, we help your youngest family members begin their social and academic journeys that can make all the difference in a child’s life. Not a daycare, our team of dedicated educators include certified undergraduate and graduate instructors who help provide your infant through school age children with well defined pre-school educational opportunities that will help them make the most out of their future social and academic experiences. Fully accredited, The Goddard School offers students an award-winning curriculum designed to guide your infant’s early learning experiences, resulting in a lifelong love of learning that allows each baby to develop at his or her own pace.


Our toddler program encourages your child’s natural curiosity in a fun and active learning environment, while our preschool program introduces preschoolers to cognitive skills, social skills, language skills, and art skills. Our pre-K program focuses on kindergarten preparedness, encouraging cooperative play and collaborative problem solving skills, all customized to your child’s progress, needs, and age.

Parents also appreciate receiving daily reports for each of their children describing the day’s curriculum, student progress, and memorable moments, all designed to help inform them of their student’s individual progression.

Due to the success of early childhood development programs, the overwhelming response of our parents, and our growing “wait list,” we are pleased to announce that The Goddard School in Hardin Valley will be adding 3,100 square feet of classroom, gym, and multi-purpose facilities to its existing campus beginning this fall, which will allow us to accept additional students in the months ahead.

There are very few things that we can offer our children that are more valuable than a great education, which we believe begins early on in your child’s life. While we don’t know where life’s journey will ultimately take our students, we’re confident that we can assist you in assuring that his or her journey will be joyful and productive.


If you would like to discover just how The Goddard School can help prepare your child for a lifetime of social and academic success, I invite you to call or visit me. Let’s begin together!
