Importance of Community Service

Commitment to family and community is characteristic of Goddard Schools. We make a difference in our communities by participating in local sponsorship as well as charitable outreach programs. The children in our schools learn about the importance of helping others and the significance of giving and being a part of their communities.

To build a foundation of good citizenship with your children, foster the essential skills of friendship, compassion, cooperation and kindness. Lead by example and teach your children the significance of helping others. Although there may be some limitations, children of almost every age can give back by participating in their communities every day:

* Teach children to love and respect nature – plants, animals and even insects. It’s okay to catch crickets, butterflies and tadpoles as long as they are set free after a reasonable observation time.

* Respect the property of others. Be a good role model and remember to clean up after the family dog in your neighbor’s yard.

* Protect the planet and encourage your children to recycle.

* Your local library can be a great resource for community information. Ask the librarian if they have a list of community events and service organizations that are child friendly and in need of volunteers.

Look for ways to give back to your community that can empower your children. Let them learn to create change in their own lives and the lives of others.

Halloween Safety Tips from Goddard School of Kennesaw/Acworth

Trunk or Treat: Goddard School of Kennesaw/Acworth Monday October 31st 5pm-6pm

Kennesaw/Acworth, GA (Grassroots Newswire) Oct 19th 2011 –It’s trick-or-treat time.  Here are some tips courtesy of The Goddard School located on Blue Springs Road to help keep your youngsters safe this Halloween.

To help our children have a safe trick or treating experience, we will be hosting a Trunk-or-Treat on Monday October 31st from 5PM – 6PM in our school parking lot. Call us at (770) 975 755, if you would like to join us. All children under 12 years are welcome to participate.

Halloween Safety Tips: 

  • Dress children in light-colored or reflective costumes
  • Help your child select a safe costume – fire-proof, with eye holes large enough for peripheral vision, or with no face coverings at all
  • Be careful with props – they can cause an injury if child falls
  • Be careful if carving a pumpkin.  Consider allowing children to scoop out the inside and painting the pumpkin instead of using knives.
  • Keep lighted- jack-o-lanterns at a safe distance from children and clear of walkways.  Consider using a light source other than a candle.
  • Start early and provide flashlights for your children and trim costumes and bags with reflective tape
  • Use sidewalks and cross streets at corners.  Remind children to look both ways
  • Eat dinner before treating – this might reduce candy-eating
  • Check all candy and treats once collected – discard any opened or damaged candy

The Goddard School® located at 3190 Blue Springs Road offers a program, for children ages six weeks to eight years, that focuses on building a strong and balanced foundation of emotional, social, cognitive and physical skills for each child. Curriculum in the school includes Spanish, sign language, yoga, early reading skills, art history, manners and more.  Credential teachers have an educational background and passion for children.  Classrooms are arranged with learning centers including math, music, creative art, blocks/puzzles, science and computers with low teacher to student ratios.  At The Goddard School® we are interested in your child’s total development.  Our programs are designed to promote confidence, creativity and self-esteem. Families have the convenience of extended hours from 6:30 am to 6:30 pm with the flexibility of either half or full-day schedules.  Parents are encouraged to call Kay Erathara at (770) 975 7555 to arrange a tour.

‘Simon Says’ Event at Goddard School – Kennesaw/Acworth GA

Goddard Schools across the country, such as the Goddard School located in the communities of Kennesaw and Acworth, participated in an effort to break the Guinness Record for the world’s largest multi-venue game of ‘Simon Says.’

At the Goddard School of Kennesaw, the 100 participants included students in Goddard’s Preschool Pre-Kindergarten,  and Kindergarten classes. Coach Ray Marker, owner of Fit Kids, played the role of Simon. Lindsay Field, from Marietta Daily Journal, served as celebrity witness for compliance with Guinness Record requirements. Other observers included parents and school faculty.

It was amazing to see how sharp the children’s listening skills were! They wiggled their fingers, shouted Happy Birthday, stepped forward and back, giggled and laughed as Coach Ray tried to outsmart them.  Kay Erathara, owner of Goddard School of Kennesaw, said that they had to go through several rounds as children were following along so well and it was becoming very hard to narrow it down to 1 winner. Out of 100 children, a last group of 6 children hung in there, determined to not get outsmarted!

The rules stated that all participants must be able to play unassisted and Simon must make intermixing calls — with and without the instruction of Simon Says — every five seconds. The game ended with 5 year old Alysha Virani winning. The current record for the largest multi-venue game of Simon Says involved 12,215 participants at the Utah Summer Games Opening Ceremony on June 14, 2007. The Goddard School system is in the process of determining the total number of participants nationwide and will submit the results to Guinness.

“The Goddard School “Simon Says” event was a fun and educational way to show families why play, fitness and nutrition matter and that how children play influences their choices in the future,” says Kay Erathara, owner of The Goddard School located in Kennesaw/Acworth. “Through imaginative activities, we are able to demonstrate how play and making healthy choices can help today’s children become tomorrow’s leaders.”

I SCREAM, YOU SCREAM, WE ALL SCREAM FOR ICE CREAM

Goddard School Kennesaw Celebrates National Ice Cream Month

Kennesaw, Ga. (Grassroots Newswire) July 12, 2011 — In 1984, President Ronald Regan declared July National Ice Cream Month, with the third Sunday in July named National Ice Cream Day – this year, that falls on July 17.

While there are so many varieties of ice cream available today – the top five favorites are vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, chocolate chip and butter pecan according to the NPD Group National Eating Trends In-Home database.  That also doesn’t stop us from making milkshakes, sundaes, novelties, cakes, floats and creative flavors including lavender, sea salt, lemon basil and more.  

Great news — kids of all ages love ice cream.  The childcare experts at The Goddard School Kennesaw polled PreK kids at their school and here’s what some of them said about ice cream…”It’s so cold”;  “I love cookie dough”; “It’s fun to scoop it”;  “There are so many flavors to pick from, sometimes it’s hard to decide.”;  “I wish we could eat it for breakfast lunch and dinner!”

In honor of National Ice Cream month The Goddard School hosted an ice cream social.  Children made their own ice cream by tossing adding ingredients and then tossing the ice cream balls to mix.  Here are some additional ideas on how to enjoy ice cream with your children courtesy of The Goddard School Kennesaw:

Have your child scoop vanilla ice cream into a cup and then top with root beer – making a float – while it might be more reminiscent of times gone by – it’s a great, fun way to enjoy ice cream.  Watch it float, make the foam, etc.

Make your own sundae bar – put variety of topping in small bowls and encourage children/friends to make their own sundaes.  Toppings can include the more traditional — chocolate syrup, whipped cream cherries to candy, crushed cookies and more.

If you really want to take it to the next level — scoop up some fun with some quick and easy ingredients and make some ice cream with your kids.  Children at The Goddard School Kennesaw used this two bag technique as well as some “ice cream balls” to turn the summer heat into a cool treat.

For the two bag version you’ll need:

1 T sugar

¼ t vanilla

½ C milk or half and half

6 T rock salt (generally easy to find in most grocery stores)

Ice

2 pint size sealable plastic bag (zipper works best)

2 gallon-size sealable plastic bag (zipper works best)

Mix sugar, milk and vanilla in small plastic bag and seal.  Consider double bagging to avoid spills.

Fill gallon size bag halfway full with ice.  Add salt to the bag.  Consider double bagging.

Place the sealed, small bag inside the large bag (NOTE: Do not open the small bag, it’s contents remain in the small bag).  Seal the large bag and the double large bag. 

Shake well/massage the large bag until the mixture in the small bag become ice cream.  You might need to use a towel/old t-shirt to massage the bag – as it gets cold.  After 5-10 minutes — eat and enjoy!

There are a variety of great ice cream dessert recipes and make your own recipes online – including several make your own versions in the ice cream ball or even a coffee can that you can kick around the yard – getting your exercise before you dig into to enjoy.

The Goddard School located at Kennesaw offers a program, for children ages six weeks to eight years, that focuses on building a strong and balanced foundation of emotional, social, cognitive and physical skills for each child.  With low ratios, credentialed teachers and a safe, learning environment with strong curriculum, The Goddard School encourages a child’s lifelong love of learning.  Parents are encouraged to drop in for a tour of the Goddard School located at Kennesaw (3190 Blue Springs Rd, Kennesaw, Ga. 30144) or call Kavitha Erathara directly at 770.975.7555 to arrange a personal appointment.

The Goddard School® of Kennesaw Hosts Jane Matthews Science Fair and Spring Egg Hunt

Kennesaw/Acworth, GA (Grassroots Newswire) 4/18/11 — The Goddard School located at 3190 Blue Springs Road, Kennesaw GA 30144 in Kennesaw/Acworth will be the host to the Jane Matthews Science Fair and Spring Egg Hunt on Saturday, April 23rd, 2011 from 10:30 AM to 12 PM. This will be the Goddard School’s third annual science fair. This year the science projects are based around the theme “Nurture Our Earth” in honor of Earth Day. Over 25 PreK and Kindergarten student projects include: “Why is there so much pollen in Atlanta” as well as “The effects of an earthquake”.

Ms. Jane Matthews, a veteran educator and creator of the school’s annual science fair, recently passed away.  Before the science fair starts, the children of the school will put items in a time capsule and a ceremony will be held placing that time capsule with children’s drawings right outside the window of Ms. Jane’s classroom and a bench will be dedicated in her honor by her husband and mother.

“Ms. Jane was a dedicated and passionate teacher who gave so much to our school and her students.  What better way to celebrate her spirit than by naming the science fair after her and dedicating a space where she can continue to watch her kids” said Kavitha Erathara, owner The Goddard School located in Kennesaw. As part of the school’s April monthly curriculum theme “Digging in the Dirt” the children at the Goddard School Kennesaw have been learning about the environment. The children are therefore excited about what they can do for the environment.

To kick off the Spring season there will be an egg hunt at 10:30 with children under 3 and 3 and older scattering about on the two playgrounds to find “hidden” treasures. 

The Goddard School offers a program that focuses on building a strong and balanced foundation of emotional, social, cognitive and physical skills for each child.  Goddard provides children with a nurturing environment and a curriculum that encourages learning through play. Families have the convenience of extended hours from 6:30 AM – 6:30 PM, the flexibility of either half or full-day schedules and Quality Assurance standards that are monitored corporately.

Speech and Language Development – How to help your child?

At the Goddard School in Kennesaw GA , we love helping our toddlers and preschoolers strengthen their speech and language development. This is a very critical part of their development growth as they grow out of infancy and enter the toddler age. When a toddler is able to communicate to their peers or adults around them, it greatly eases their frustration. Therefore, for educators and parents, speech and the ability to communicate is high on our radar during those years. Going into our preschool years, the power of communication is the foundation to their developing their curiosity and learning all that we surround them with as teachers and parents.

Speech and Language Development Parent Seminar

Recognizing this, as a school, we organized a seminar for our parents to help them with what to expect at the different ages from birth to 6 years.  Mrs. Christine Law is a licensed Speech-language Pathologist with over 10 years of experience in working with children from birth through school age. We invited her to our school yesterday to talk to our parents and help them with the critical developmental goal of speech and language. Mrs. Law helped our parents with details of speech milestones at the different ages. Her presentation was strongly infused with real life examples from her own parenting challenges and helped our parents immensely in understanding how to implement the tips and strategies she shared with them. The presentation empowered parents with ideas that they can do on a daily basis to take advantage of the multiple opportunities we get everyday to stimulate and tempt our children to communicate. One of our parents who attended the session, Dr. Simon, is a specialist on linguistics and language acquisition. His impression was that, “Mrs. Law’s presentation was very informative and really useful to him as a parent”.

Thank you Mrs. Law for helping our parents, teachers and children at the Goddard School build up that foundation of communication which is inherent to an enriched childhood!

Tips to ‘Tempt Communication’ !

1. Eat something your child loves in their presence. Model an advanced way for them to make a request for it.

2. Pay turn-taking games such as rolling a ball back and forth. When your child expects a turn, hold the ball and wait. Look at him/her to make a sign or a verbal request. If none is made, model an appropriate request such as the sign for “ball”, the /b/ sound, the word “ball” or the phrase “ball please”.

3. When modeling communication, stay only 1 step ahead of the child’s current developmental stage.

4. Tempt your child with activities or toys they will be very interested in and encourage them to “ask” for it.

Enjoy communicating with your little one!

Scintillating Science Fair at the Goddard School of Kennesaw

The Goddard School of Kennesaw hosted its Annual Science Fair on April 22nd. It was amazing to watch young minds at work. Toddlers learned science through the enriching activities of planting and measuring the growth of plants. Pre K children picked individual science experiments and made formal presentations. Our parents participated and cheered our children on as they tried their hands at different ways to unlock the mysteries of science! What a wonderful day filled with exciting learning and expanding preschool minds!

Goddard School of Kennesaw Children go on an exciting adventure with Flat Stanley

We are about to embark on an exciting Flat Stanley adventure. Flat Stanley has asked if he can help our students on this learning journey!

We have read the story Flat Stanley in our classes. Stanley was flattened (without being hurt) and is able to travel the world! Stanley has agreed to help your child gain information about the world by traveling to visit one of their relatives or friends that live in another state or country.

The recipient of Flat Stanley will be asked to house the traveler for a few days, showing them the sites and returning them with a note and some pictures or a small souvenir of the fun that they were able to have together. Flat Stanley has had lunch at Governor Purdue’s, climbed the Eiffel Tower in Paris, and road gondolas in Venice!

We have everything your child needs to create their very own Flat Stanley right here at the school. Please stop by the Sprites classroom one day this week to let your child create their Flat Stanley. The Sprites room will be open Monday-Friday from 3:00-6:30pm for Flat Stanley’s adventures!! Please bring with you the name and addresses of the two people that you would like us to send your child’s flat Stanley too.

We are extremely excited about this upcoming adventure!!

Summer is a wonderful time for children to have enjoy a rich mix of fun and learning. At the Goddard School of Kennesaw, our children will travel the world with their “passports”! They will visit a country EVERY WEEK and learn all about the country. We will make volcanoes, make papyrus, make pinwheels, learn about tropical forests and more!

Field Trips every week and water days to soak up the fun!!
