The Goddard School, a leader in early childhood education, located in Plymouth Meeting, PA has been awarded a gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program. The Goddard School located in Plymouth Meeting was awarded the highest points earned from any certified daycare facility nationwide from the updated LEED certification program.

LEED certification, a third-party certification program and nationally accepted benchmark for green buildings, recognizes high-performance schools that are healthy and comfortable for students and teachers. LEED certification is recognized across the globe as the premier mark of achievement in green building. By addressing the uniqueness of school spaces and children’s health issues, LEED provides a comprehensive tool for schools that wish to build green with measurable results.
Some of the school’s energy and sustainability features include:

• Triple pane windows that prevent drafts, save energy from escaping the building, and allow the sun to heat spaces during winter months.
• Super insulated walls, floor, and roof that reduce the size of heating and cooling equipment and keep room temperatures comfortable.
• A building envelope that is designed to reduce air infiltration to passive house levels.
o Passive house buildings are super-insulated, virtually airtight structures that rely on solar energy and the heat generated by people and appliances to do the heavy lifting on climate control, especially during the winter.
• An interior lighting system that harvests free daylight entering the building via classroom and clerestory windows.

    Jamaican And Korean Fusion In Roxborough

    13 Ways to Work with Eggs - Philadelphia Freedom Valley YMCA
    Make simple, delicious, budget-savvy meals. Crack open that tiny shell and you'll find a host of benefits. Eggs are versatile, cost-friendly, and crammed with nutrients you need. "[They're] an excellent source of protein, and many people don't realize it's the egg yolk that supplies the vitamins and minerals," says Diane Welland, Washington, D.C.-based RD.
