presents new skills to children in a playful and engaging way. The program is supported by a growing body of research from Play for Tomorrow, the consortium behind the respected “playful learning” movement.


“When an activity is fun, children are engaged and eager to learn – they flex their mind and body,” says Adair. “They become happy, confident learners.”


During the Goddard Community Games event, SanTan Sun families will have the opportunity to enjoy a “hands-on” playful learning experience with a variety of programs, ranging from Sign Language, Yoga and Nutrition to World Cultural Voyages, Everyday Math and “Rock ‘n’ Tot” pre-dance and creative movement. The focus will be on fun, as parents and their children share in a day of discovery and enrichment.


“The children attending The Goddard School today are


the leaders of tomorrow,” adds Adair. “Our teachers nurture each child’s self confidence and foster their lifelong love of learning by incorporating teacher-planned and child-directed learning activities into each day. When children enjoy learning, they take away not only knowledge of the task or concept but a sense of personal accomplishment that prepares them for a successful journey through life.” To learn more about the Goddard Community Games and The Goddard Schools located in the SanTan Sun area, visit www.goddardschool.com, call 800-GODDARD or contact Christine Goldberg at The Goddard School located in Chandler, 480-821-1234, ChandlerAZ@goddardschools.
