WEST ORANGE, NJ – The Goddard School of West Orange, located at 303 Mt. Pleasant Avenue, is hosting a "How to Pay for College Seminar" for local parents on Tuesday, Oct. 8 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. 

Owner and director Nicole Harrison’s goal is to not only provide an early educational start for her students, but also to create a holistic environment for families to get additional resources that will enhance parents’ child-rearing years. 

“We have recently paired up with a team of local financial coaches that will help parents learn about financial concepts that impact nearly every person raising a child,” said Harrison. “Having four children myself, I understand that planning for each child’s future must be done with care and with the right information.”
