"Root for Earth provides students with a great opportunity to focus on the importance of caring for our environment through engaging STEAM lessons," said Dr. Craig Bach, vice president of education at Goddard Systems, Inc., franchisor of The Goddard School.

With more than 30 years of experience in early childhood education, The Goddard School uses the most current, academically endorsed methods to ensure that children from six weeks to six years old have fun while learning skills for long-term success in school and in life. While The Goddard School's play-based curriculum discusses environmental responsibility throughout the year, the Root for Earth campaign focuses exclusively on environmental lessons. Children are encouraged to explore the world around them, apply their knowledge at home and make sustainable choices.
