Goddard School to open in Darien
The Goddard School, a preschool and childcare center for children from 6 weeks to 6 years old, at 8350 Lemont Road in Darien, will celebrate its grand opening from 9 a.m. to noon. on Feb. 9.
Children of all ages will enjoy games and crafts in the classrooms, and a visit from local musician Bill Hooper (Music & Motion). Families will receive 50 percent off their first full month’s tuition when they enroll during the festivities.
At 9:30 a.m., the community is invited to attend a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony where a ribbon of 100 $1 bills will be cut and donated to Ronald McDonald House Charities.
Children and families are invited to create birthday cards to be distributed throughout the year by Ronald McDonald House directors to pediatric patients or family members celebrating birthdays during their, or a loved one’s, hospital stay. For every card that The Goddard School collects, Goddard Systems, Inc., franchisor of The Goddard School, will donate $1 to the charity (up to $25,000).
Goddard School owners Michael and Margaret Petrucelli, along with the school’s educational director, Lu-Ann Tanton, and faculty, are eager to welcome children.
