New Goddard School In Tysons Corner Now Open

Newest preschool on ground floor of office building in Tysons

August 28, 2018 // // TYSONS, VA - Laura Dinder, onsite owner of The Goddard School in Tyson, VA, and her husband, Bradly, searched their area for early childhood education options to get a feel for what they had access to.

That’s when they discovered The Goddard School.

“After contemplating childcare options and career changes, I knew I wanted to become actively involved in my family’s life while providing my future children with a strong academic start in a supportive and loving environment,” she said.

Laura and her husband, along with co-owner Ross Flax, who owns four other locations in the Washington D.C. area, are kicking off the 2018-19 school year by opening the doors to the newest The Goddard School located in Tysons, VA to meet the growing community’s demand for early childhood education options.

The first day of school at the preschool was on Monday, Aug. 27.

Once open, the 11,000-square-foot preschool, located in an office building nearby the Tysons Corner Medical Center, will serve area children, infants through Pre-K, with its unique play-based learning curriculum. It will serve children from the Vienna, Falls Church, McLean and Reston communities.

Prior to opening The Goddard School located in Tysons, Dinder worked for Johns Hopkins University, managing business operations, finances and research finances for the hospital’s interventional radiology division. She worked as a management consultant for The Goddard School in Rockville, MD since 2017.

“The Goddard School’s mission of helping children foster a love of learning echoes my own philosophy that education is a life-long journey, and those that are taught to enjoy excel and thrive in any environment,” Laura said. “I believe that the first few years of a child’s life are the most important time for development - socially, emotionall and academically.”

The Goddard School’s play-based F.L.EX.® Learning Program (Fun Learning Experience) is grounded in research on how children learn best: children experience the deepest, most genuine learning when they are having fun. The focus is on building each child’s emotional, academic, social, creative and physical skills to provide a well-rounded experience and ensure each one becomes confident, joyful and fully prepared in school and in life.

The preschool, located at 8618 Westwood Center Drive, will be open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.
