Play-based learning center hosts ribbon cutting to mark six months of being open in community.


CENTER VALLEY, PA (MAY 18, 2021) The Goddard School® in Center Valley began providing the best care and educational experience to the youngest in the community since opening its doors in January 2021. To commemorate its six months of commitment to families in the Lehigh Valley, a ribbon cutting ceremony will be held on Saturday, June 5. Alyson Parlo and Dolly and Monty Kalsi, franchisees of The Goddard School in Center Valley, will be joined by members of the Greater Leigh Valley Chamber of Commerce to celebrate this milestone for the early childhood education provider.

“It’s an honor to join forces with parents and help their children blossom and reach developmental and educational milestones. We’re excited to officially celebrate being a part of this wonderful community,” Alyson said.

The newly construction, 12,000-square-foot building has 10 classrooms for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. Equipped with the latest educational technologies, children are immersed in 21st century and STEAM learning (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics). They are engaging in activities using interactive smartboards, learning about nature in the School’s sensory garden, and getting time to run and play outdoors in the School’s playgrounds.

This summer at The Goddard School, Summer Learning will feature curriculums for all age groups from infants and toddlers to pre-school and school-age children. Recognizing the need to support the social and emotional needs of children seeking a return to normalcy, The Goddard School designed a curriculum that will focus on two key themes – In My World and The World Out There. The themes work together to engage children’s natural curiosity and excitement to explore.

In addition to the ribbon cutting ceremony on June 5, private tours are being offered for parents interested in joining the Goddard family. There will also be individual meet-and-greets for existing parents to interact with their children’s teachers.

The Goddard School in Center Valley, PA, located at 3790 West Drive, is open Monday to Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Check out the School’s website and their Facebook page for more on the curriculum and activities.
