Life-Long Educator Opens Preschool
Newest Goddard School Now Open in Millburn, NJ
September 19, 2018 // Franchising.com // MILLBURN, NJ - Laura Kulkarni, a life-long educator and onsite owner of the newest The Goddard School located in Millburn, NJ, knew from a young age that she wanted to be a teacher.
As a child she loved school, her teachers, and had a passion for learning.
“I became a teacher because I wanted to make a positive difference in the world, and moment for moment, there’s no greater impact we can make on a person’s life than in the first few years,” she said.
Opening the newest The Goddard School located in Millburn, NJ, was another step in her journey to have a positive impact on the lives of young children, helping them become confident, joyful and fully prepared for success in school and in life.
Laura spent more than a decade as an educator, teaching at private schools such as The Pingry School, Landon School and Barrie School. She earned her master’s in education from Teachers College, Columbia University and her master’s in English literature from The College of New Jersey. The core of Laura’s professional expertise centers around faculty professional development and mentoring, student academic counseling, and curriculum design.
Now, she’s bringing The Goddard School’s play-based F.L.EX Learning Program (Fun Learning Experience) to the Millburn community.
“There’s no cookie-cutter experience at The Goddard School,” Laura said. “It’s about individualizing experiences for every child and faculty members are involved in developing amazing and exciting lesson plans that foster joy and understanding.”
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 newest preschool, located at 161 Millburn Avenue, officially opened on Sept. 4 and is enrolling children ages six weeks to six years old. The preschool is open Monday to Friday from 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
