The Goddard School
Preparing your child for his or her social and academic success is one of the most important things a parent can do. At The Goddard School, which makes its home in Laurel Springs, uses the F.L.E.X. approach to achieve student goals. This approach helps ensure developmental guidelines are met by using lesson plans focused on the child and what their abilities are. It offers a creative and fun learning environment, and child-centered teachable moments. Math, science, language, and more are presented in a fun and exciting way that helps encourage learning rather than turning it into a boring task.
Wharton State Forest
Located just a half hour drive from Laurel Springs, the Wharton State Forest is a fantastic place to get away from it all. Get out on the water and take part in some canoeing or kayaking. If you are more of a land lover, stretch your legs on one of the numerous hiking trails. The park also has miles of unpaved roads that are great for mountain biking or horseback riding. Be sure to check out Batsto Village located right in the forest. This village is the site of a former bog iron and glass-making industrial center that was active from 1766 to 1867.
