Traditional

Goddard School Summer Program

Research has shown that keeping a child’s day consistent throughout the summer months keeps the brain focused and helps prevent learning loss during the summer. This can also potentially ease the anxiety that often accompanies transitioning into a new classroom or school come fall. The Summer Program at The Goddard School® located in Middleton goes far beyond just summer camp fun to provide an experience that blends fun, adventure and learning.
