At the Goodman Community Center, we know how important early childhood education is in a child's life, and we're committed to providing a high-quality preschool and 4-year-old kindergarten experience for the entire family.
Using a play-based approach to learning, our teachers support children as they explore the world around them through a mix of child-initiated play and intentionally designed activities.
Our mixed-age classrooms help children develop social-emotional skills that are essential to their success throughout school and life. As nurturing relationships are fostered, children also develop skills that will help them with a smooth transition to 5-year-old kindergarten.
Goodman Center childcare programs (preschool, 4K and elementary after-school) are city accredited and state licensed. Our childcare programs have a 5-star Young Star rating – the highest rating possible.
Although our early childhood education classrooms are combined, there are distinct enrollment requirements for preschool and 4K. Please read below to learn more about our programs and how to enroll.
