My child loves going here for preschool. He has been learning so many new things every week. Staff is wonderful here too!

Our son has been in the Avon Goddard school since he was an infant. I'm including my parting letter to them as my review: Thank you so much for all the wonderful years you have given to our son. It has been comforting to know he is safe, secure and loved when I can’t be with him. I appreciate all the academic, social and emotional education that each of you shared with our son. You have all helped to make him into the person that he is today! Your kindness will always be remembered. With Sincere Gratitude, G & J

We have been part of the Goddard family for the past 6 years with nothing but great interactions with the owner, staff, and all the teachers. Our kids love it there and have grown socially while getting a jump start on the things that the little ones will be learning in Kindergarten and beyond. Thanks to everyone there for caring for and keeping our kids safe and smart!

The Goddard School in Sparks is the best decision we made for our son. He received the highest standard of care, educationally and emotionally. The teachers, curriculum, environment, and activities are all top notch. I know that when he begins kindergarten next month he will be completely prepared. I can't recommend this school enough!

Our family has been apart of The Goddard School since my now 6 year old was one. We moved here from out of state, not knowing anyone and the staff and teachers helped my family feel like we were at home here. My 6 year old is now going into first grade but loves coming back to the school for Parents Night Out and days when his school is closed. My daughter has been at Goddard since she was 8 weeks old and enjoys everyday there! I know when I drop my daughter off there everyday that she is going to have fun, learn a ton and most importantly feel loved.

I have had my kids at Goddard for almost 3 years and by far this is the best daycare center they have attended. My son, now 7, went to Goddard from 4.5 to almost 6 years old. When he was tested for kindergarten at age 5 it became apparent that his previous school did nothing to prepare him in terms of reading and the alphabet. I immediately spoke with Ms. Karen and she took it upon herself to set up a summer curriculum to prepare him. She and several teachers worked with him daily one-on-one and now I am proud to say he is reading a grade or two above where he should be. They were also extremely flexible during my maternity leave 2.5 years ago when I had my daughter. My daughter comes home everyday with a smile on her face and leaves every morning excited to go to school.

The Goddard School has been wonderful to our family. Our 3 young children have learned so much during their time at this school. The curriculum is absolutely fantastic! Plus, they do yoga, learn Spanish, have splash days and get tons of supervised socialization. The teachers genuinely care about our children (and us) and the staff has been very accommodating. We definitely recommend the Goddard School!

I moved my daughter to Goddard after much research over the summer. I was unhappy with the treatment at her previous school. When both my husband and I witnessed my then four year old daughter being called "Skunk" by her teacher and students, we pulled her immediately from that school. Fortunately, I had researched many schools during my summer break. Both my husband and I chose Goddard because of the cleanliness and the fact that they were not going to hold my daughter back because she wasn't fully potty trained. In fact, my daughter loved her visit to this school because they let her stay in the classroom to participate in a puppet show they were doing in her possible future classroom while I was speaking with a director. Mary Beth and Karen welcomed her to Goddard and made sure she was well taken care of. Not only did she learn, but she was treated with care. She spent two years there and graduated with a very high percentage on her kindergarten readiness test that she took at her future elementary school. Although it was more expensive than some of the other schools and definitely farther than the other ones, we could not have been happier.

Both my kids were in Goddard school from when they were one year old until they graduated from pre-K. They prepare the kids so well in preK that they have no problem going to kindergarten. It's the best day care that we could find in this area. It has a nice facility. The owner Mike is very attentive to the details and has great communications with the parents. The teachers are very professional and friendly. They care sincerely about the children. My kids love the school and have only good things to say about their teachers.

This school/daycare center is amazing! The owners own both it and one in Colorado Springs. We went to a different center in Thornton when are oldest was a baby and then switched to in home for awhile. We then found ourselves moving to the Springs without connections to in home daycares so we decided to stick to centers. I always call centers that I'm thinking about entering on Thursday afternoons late in the day to see how they answer the phone. I figure if they are friendly late in the day after 4 working days that is a good sign. I called the Colorado Springs school and they were very friendly and always professional. We only lived in Colorado Springs for 9 months before moving to this area. When moving, they asked if we wanted a recommendation for a center. I said sure even though I had already called around to see which Goddard or other center that we would take our son to. They recommended this school. There were different owners at the time. Our oldest starting attending this daycare and within 2 months the owners switched to Liz and Daren. We were thrilled. They love the kids so much and take wonderful care of the school, teachers, classes, and students! They are always professional and will take the time to listen to you if you ever have a concern or a suggestion on something that might make the school better. Our son went through Pre-K here and then graduated and went on to Elementary school before we had our 2nd son. As soon as we were pregnant, I knew exactly the center that I want to take my next child too. Our 2nd will be 2 here soon and he loves his school. The teachers/staff/administration are friendly, attentive, and communicate well with parents. Children will have stages they go through where they might bite, scratch someone, or throw a tantrum. The school handles all these with grace and communicates to the parents to keep them in the loop. They keep the children involved confidential so that parents don't argue with each other over the incident. Also, if a child trips when learning to walk and has a boo boo, they tend to it and send home an incident report. They redirect the children when appropriate as well. As children go through learning leaps, there might be a few more reports (1 report 2 weeks in a row) but nothing that has ever been alarming to us with either of our children. The teachers create a curriculum based on the development needs of the classroom. The children are not forced to participate but it helps them to have options and helps them know how to interact with other kids. The younger kids are taught how to help pick up and also sharing. The staff/teachers/administration watch class ratio. As people arrive in the mornings there will be floaters in classrooms to help ensure that the ratio stays within the State rules. In the evenings, they will move consolidate classrooms as kids head home to ensure they are still meeting the ratio and allowing teachers to leave at a decent time. I have arrived in the middle of the day out of the norm multiple times and have never seen the class ratio off or anything that I would be concerned with as a parent. The only hassles that we find are making sure that we keep our paperwork update with immunizations (the school kindly reminds us each time that it is about to be outdated to update it please) and also it is a nut free school. We are lucky that our children do not have nut allergies and I understand the concern for parents that do have kids with nut allergies so we abide by the rules. It just makes thinking of lunch ideas hard sometimes. The school does offer suggestions. With our oldest, he would eat his peanut butter sandwiches for dinner and take whatever we cooked for dinner as leftovers for lunch the next day. All my comments above relate to the daycare from 2012 - 2016 (with only 16 month lapse without a kid there).

The Goddard School in Akron will always make staffing decisions based upon the best interest of the children and the families we serve. We take great pride in the training we provide for our staff. When a teacher fails to meet our standard of care, we work with them. When a teacher resists our efforts and is unaccountable, they remove themselves from our program. Being a good teacher and good employee is a matter of choice and attitude. We simply wish this "anonymous former infant teacher" placed greater emphasis in the classroom and less on negative posts.

Relocating to MI and trying to find the best school for our child was a task we took very seriously. After looking at 5 options a d selecting Goddard, we could not be more pleased with the level of care our toddler receives. The curriculum is a perfect fit for our family. The teachers not only develop their students but truly love them and build confidence! Our toddler has thrived and we have loved all of the amazing projects, art and our daily updates. We have seen increase in vocabulary, creativity and love that our bossy toddler has learned to share! We have been incredibly healthy at this school too which I attribute to the staff for ensuring standards around cleanliness. The management at the facility has high standards, holds their staff accountable, makes sure ratio is for the benefit of the students and is incredibly involved. We are a proud Goddard Family!

Goddard School was the best fit for our five-year-old when we had to find a school for her in January. The atmosphere was friendly and relaxed, the focus was on learning through play, the times were flexible, the staff was attentive and welcoming. She loved going to school and made a remarkable amount of progress in the few months she was there. Ms. Kathy and Ms. Nikki did a wonderful job of leading their students and you can feel their care for each of them.

I have two kids at Goddard School. One is graduating Pre-K and has been there since he was one years old. My other child has been there since three months old and is now in the toddler program. I have a good relationship with all the staff and the owner. Everyone is like family at this school. I would highly recommend this school for other families.

We loved the Goddard School. The only reason we left was because our child will be going into Kindergarten in the fall. We are very thankful for her time at Goddard. We loved ALL of the staff. She learned a lot but also had a lot of fun. I thought the lesson plans and units of study were excellent and think the curriculum has really prepared her for elementary school.

As parents that worked split shifts and kept our son at home for more than a year, we were slightly anxious about starting our son in daycare. The Goddard school, their staff, and the directors, could not have made the transition any smoother or more seamless. Our son loves going to school there and sometimes he doesn’t want to leave when it is pickup time. We have noticed a marked increase in his communication and social skills as well as his independence. One of the challenges we faced with selecting a day care provider was finding a provider that was approved by the GSA for military families. The list was very small for our area, but we were extremely fortunate that Miss Sue had registered the Goddard School. The location is very convenient and the program has exceeded our expectations. Miss Sue has also gone above and beyond when coordinating military support, paperwork, and other government requirements to assist our family. She has helped us navigate a consistently changing process and been extremely flexible with keeping our account up to date, while waiting for reimbursement. Our experience has been nothing but positive to this point, and we have referred a fellow military family, who were very disappointed in their previous daycare provider. They have had just as positive results with their son, and were very grateful for the referral.

When my mother suddenly fell ill, my husband and I found ourselves feverishly looking for a loving, nurturing environment for our then 3 year old, full time. The Goddard School in Orange has been such a blessing. Not only do I feel 100% comfortable leaving our pride and joy with them, she has flourished under the love and guidance of the Goddard staff. As we prepare to transition to Kindergarten this Fall, a part of me is sad to be leaving the Goddard nest but also very excited to see our daughter flourish thanks in large part to the strong foundation she has built up at Goddard. Highly recommend!

The Goddard School of Medford made my childs preschool years a very memorable one. The school always had a wonderful reputation, and I was very excited to start him there. He loved school, and learned how to read fluently at 4 years old. He was truly ready for Kindergarten after 2 years of preschool. I am even an employee now, enjoying teaching other children and giving them all the memories my son was able to have. Sincerely, Shannon Novak, proud mom and assistant teacher

We couldn't be happier with The Goddard School in Avon.

My family has been happy with the Goddard school for a long time. Both of my sons have gone here - both having had nothing but great experiences! Compassionate caring teachers, great learning experiences and wonderful parent support with helpful office staff are all the things that make this place great! When my first son transitioned to Kindergarten, I was told after his Kindergarten assessment that he was more than prepared. It was such a great feeling to know! It really just backed up all I had known all along about the Goddard school - that they care about my children and are there to help them succeed onto the next steps. As the "pre-K graduation" (yes - there is a ceremony!) date approaches for my second son through Goddard school - I can't help but look back at how many years we have been here and feel a little sad that we will be moving on... the relationships that are created here with the kids, teachers, staff and parents are special. It truly is a community of learning! Thank you so much for all you do!!!

Our son attended here from the age of 1. It's really an amazing organization - they have a curriculum that they follow, and you're kept informed with daily reports that include a personal note from the child's teacher about something special your child did that day. Not just a holding area for kids while their parents are at work, this is truly a place that takes care of your kids and enriches and educates them. I can't speak highly enough!

Our son started at the Goddard School in Rock Hill when he was 1.5 years old. It was our first experience with childcare and we were very nervous, to say the least. However, we have loved every single thing about the Goddard School! Everyone is amazing: the teachers are so caring, the administration is incredibly organized, the curriculum touches on every area of development, and our son has really thrived there. We don't have to worry about him while we're at work because we know he is well taken care of. The Goddard School Rock Hill is more than a preschool, it is truly a home away from home!

My daughter has been in the infant room since 4 months old. The infant room is AMAZING! The room is always clean and well put together. The teachers are so loving and caring, and treat our daughter as if she were their own. I love that the teachers are willing to help her get on a schedule with naps and feedings. I cannot say enough about this baby room. I know the she is getting the best care when I drop her off every morning until we pick her up. You can tell everyone at Goddard School has a true passion working with children. I would highly recommend this location to any future parents considering Goddard School Chadds Ford!

My daughter looks forward to going to Goddard everyday. She loves her teachers and is blossoming. The teachers have gotten to know my family and have formed a bond with my daughter. They communicate with me daily and have helped my daughter learn so much! The other teachers are always friendly and know my daughter by name. The directors communicate professionally and always make us feel welcome. I always feel that I can go to them if I have concerns. We wouldn't go anywhere else!

There are truly not enough good things that I could say about this school. I now have two children in the facility and could not be happier. The level of care that my children receive is unmatched. In three years, I have had very nominal, expected issues that come with young children, but each has been handled with the utmost of professionalism and respect. During a time when my child was having some difficulty, the entire team worked together to ensure he was as successful as possible. I fully believe that if we had been anywhere else he would not have been worked with and loved in the way he was at Goddard. Everyone that works there, owners, administration, faculty, and support staff have been phenomenal. I would suggest anyone in this area looking for an a top notch educational experience to visit the Goddard School. You will not be disappointed.

My husband and I could not be any happier with the Goddard School, the teachers and entire staff! The knowledge that our son has gained from the teaching is beyond amazing. Every individual that both us and our son have come in contact with has been a positive experience. It is very evident that The Goddard School puts each child's needs before their own. Our only regret is that we waited so long to enroll our son in TGS.

I'm so grateful to have found The Goddard School in Indian Trail; the perfect environment for our children to be in as they prepare for Kindergarten and beyond! A fine balance of academic preparation and social interaction with continuous parent/teacher communication. Everyday I see my children using what they've learned. For example, as we drove from NC to CT my son starts singing the "States Song!" Awesome connection to see learning being applied outside the classroom! Cannot find a better staff that genuinely cares for the children that walk through the door.

The Goddard School in Indian Trail is an amazing school filled with wonderful teachers that foster every child's love for learning. It is a healthy, clean, organized, and fun environment. They do a wonderful job preparing children for kindergarten. Both of my children attended The Goddard School. My daughter went from 18 months to Jr. Kindergarten. My son attended from 9 months to Jr. Kindergarten. Every afternoon my kids have so much to tell me about their days. Everyday I receive an email with details about their day. As an elementary school teacher, it means so much to have my kids well educated and ready for kindergarten.

I do not know how to begin this review other than to say first and foremost, I trust the Owner, Directors, and Teachers explicitly, and as a new, first-time parent, that was the most challenging thing to me- finding good, quality care, with people that I trusted with my greatest life gift. My son started in the infant classroom at 11 weeks of age and immediately enjoyed his new routine with his teachers. He became consistent with feedings, nap schedules, and thrived watching the older infants in his classroom. Developmentally, he was always advanced for his age, due in part I believe to Goddard's curriculum and the full engagement that he received daily from his teachers. My Husband and I developed a strong relationship with our son's teachers and they became a part of our family. I cannot recommend this location strong enough. They do not see children as dollar signs here - they actually want to teach them, groom them for the world, and care for them. The infant room teachers were always so nurturing with our son. I will be forever grateful to them for everything that they did for our son and our family.

We love Goddard. We currently have 2 children here, one in the infant room and one in the 3-4 year old classroom. We have been at this location since the opening of the school in 2013. We left our previous school because of concerns with teacher, family and head of school turnovers and have been very happy we did. One of the things I appreciate the most is that Goddard is obviously a national company and learning style, so each school has to meet the requirements & standards upheld by this. However, the schools are individually owned and operated which means the owners take a lot of pride and care in their schools. The Head of School isn't just someone hired for a job; they are the owner. I feel this is the biggest and greatest difference here. The owners are fantastic and care a lot of each family as well as all the teachers and staff. They are also very present and are there everyday when we drop off and pick up. My girls always want to go to school. My littlest one reaches out for her teachers every morning. We use the teachers as babysitters when we need them because we love and trust them so much. My 4 year old has never said she doesn't want to go to school in the almost 3 years we have been here. Head teachers here are required to have a Bachelor's degree which is definitely not the case at all childcare facilities. A lot of the teachers have been there since the opening of the school. They are professional, personable and care for the kiddos in their classes. We get photos everyday of them interacting and learning which seems like a small thing, but is so appreciated. The cost is high as is almost any childcare these days, but we looked at a lot of different schools as well as nannies and the cost is comparable and by no means the most expensive place in town. We do get a discount for having two children attend. We plan to keep our girls here until the go to public kindergarten.

My son has attended The Goddard School for alsmot two years now (we were at previous centers before) and he and I both love it! He gets to learn so much beyond what other daycares offer. He enjoys the bonus of the gardening they do every spring! The staff there is amazing! You cant really ask for better teachers or administration. My son has a chronic health condition and from day one they have worked with me to have him still involved in activites with kids his age and be able to excel at his age level. Michelle is always there when you need her for any questions as well which is amazing for an owner! I wouldnt take my son anywhere else!

The Goddard School has been a great experience for our son. We started him out in the potty-training school after he told his mom that he didn't need to use the bathroom because, in his words, "I look good in diapers". After the resounding success of his potty training, and after seeing how well he did with the rest of the kids, we decided to keep him in school as long as we could. Three days a week, and he is thriving. Couldn't recommend this enough! Love the school, love the staff even more!

My family loves The Goddard School on Andrew Drive. I can't rave enough about how caring and loving the entire staff is. Teachers and management know all of the children's and parent's names. My son and I are greeted with smiles each morning and afternoon. Each child gets daily reports sent to their parent's smartphone/email, and pictures are sent through the day, sometimes even a video is sent! The building is VERY clean, and emails are sent out to parents if there is a health alert such as a stomach bug. I find this comforting that they tell us about health alerts, rather than the parents finding out by chance. I highly suggest this school!

I can't say enough about this school! I can only speak for the infant program (I have twins) but they are amazing. It would be so easy to stick the babies in an enclosed area and let them play with toys until they get tired. But these teachers/leaders actually have these babies finger painting, coloring, using glue with goldfish crackers and paper (mine were only 7 months old then!). They take them on buggy rides in good weather or let them play outside, they sing to them, I mean it's endless. I have made several unannounced visits to drop things off to my kids or to just check on them and every time no matter how hectic it may seem they always take time to update me or include me in whatever activities they had going on. I was concerned at first with the 1 to 4 ratio because I know how crazy it can be when I'm alone with the twins but it's not bad at all. These kids love interacting with each other and the teachers and all the toys around. I don't know how they do it but Ms. Annabelle (director) and the teachers in the infant room know ALL the kid's names and all the parent's names. I say that because they have multiple classrooms with a wide range of ages. They make it personal for everyone. I know someone mentioned that they felt the activities only last 30 minutes and that's it but if it's true just try and put yourself in their shoes. There is usually an average of about 12-14 babies, not all of them are the same age, have the same feeding/sleep schedule or even interest level but at least they try to be very interactive with these young ones. Hands down Goddard is amazing!

I had checked almost every daycare on Spring Cypress/Louetta area, Goddard is the one that gave me the most comfortable feeling as soon as I walked in. My first impression was a clean, professional environment where I was willing to leave my child. Zayn had never been away from me but within two weeks he was walking in his class with tears yet willing. I'm thankful to teachers and staff for understanding every child's individual needs. Love the school! Satisfied with my choice.

I don't even know where to start I have so much to rave about The Goddard School. Our son (3) and daughter (1) have been students at Goddard since the infants' classroom. As our son has moved up from one class to the next we are continually amazed that the quality of teachers and content remains top notch across all of the classrooms. We went from considering ourselves lucky that he's had so many excellent teachers to realizing it isn't luck - its the quality the Goddard School provides. Beyond the classroom - the support and administrative staff interact with our kids regularly. When you send your kids off to someone else for childcare - especially that first time with your baby - it can be so hard to trust and feel safe in your decision. When it was time for our daughter to start at Goddard - I can't tell you how much more comfortable we were because we had already experienced the care, education and love she would receive at this school. Just as important - we trust the teachers and staff when we need help at home with things like potty training tips, addressing bad behavior, etc. If you want a safe and caring environment for your kids that educates them through play, reading and language arts - Goddard is the best choice in the Goodyear/Avondale/Litchfield Park area.

The staff has been very supportive and the classrooms are a good ratio of kids to teacher. I thought the class size was going to be a lot bigger but very happy to see its a smaller amount of kids in the room. The kids seem well taken care of in terms of activities, fun art projects, reading, cleanliness, help in bathroom etc. I like every week is a new topic and that I receive daily reports of what my daughter did in the class including pictures. I also like that they offer extra curricular activities throughout the week like sports, dance and gymnastics. Your continued support means so much to us, and we

My wife and I couldn't be happier with this school! The teachers are so caring and do an excellent job teaching the children. The facility has top notch equipment like ipads, smart boards, interactive learning toys and we recieve updates with pictures on the tadpoles app. We are thrilled with the new owners Bill and Lisa who bring passion for teaching young children and make the school warm and inviting. I wish my son could go here forever, it's so wonderful.

As a teacher, early education is important to me. Research shows a child’s early years lay the foundation for the future. The human brain develops the vast majority of its neurons, and is at its most receptive to learning, between birth and three years of age. Because of this, I wanted to find a daycare that was more than just childcare and babysitting... a place of purposeful learning, both structured and independent learning...a place of teaching social and emotional skills...a place where my children were well-loved and cared for... a place where staff were well-educated and trained and loved their job...a place where I felt my children were safe. All these expectations were exceeded at the Goddard School. You have to get buzzed in to pick up your kid once you enter the building (I love the security). The staff is required to have daily lesson plans centered on a theme of the week (no random, fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants-teaching). The walls are full of pictures, artwork, activities, quotes, and family pictures. The learning is purposeful, connected and tied to big ideas. The staff know me by name, and even teachers in other classrooms know my kids’ names. This just goes to show the importance that Michelle (the owner), Selena (director) and Danae (manager) place on creating a family environment at the Goddard. They are part of my family. I don’t feel guilty about leaving my kids when I go to work because I know they are getting a rich experience. I mean, honestly, I am not the mom that is going to have my kids paint with coconut, or paint by blowing through a straw, yet I LOVE that my children get these experiences at the Goddard school. Academically, my 2-year-old practically knows how to sing his ABC’s, counts numbers up to 13, and is learning how to share with others and practice using his manners. He currently tells mommy and daddy to “cover our coughs” whenever we sneeze, cough, or hiccup. He is learning social skills. My 18-month-old is addicted to books and will try to read to us in her own language. She is learning how to stay seated while eating her lunch, take turns, and share with friends. I attest much of my children’s social development and oral language development to the Goddard School. I have the utmost respect for the teachers at the Goddard. They are juggling a multitude of things in addition to actual teaching…changing diapers, consoling crying little ones, making messes, cleaning messes, getting out toys, beginning activities, making snacks, applying sunscreen, putting on coats, taking off coats, repeating the process, and they do it all with poise, patience, positivity and enthusiasm. They are my heroes. Both my children started at the Goddard as babies (3 months-old and 5-months-old) and have been there ever since. Hands down, I would recommend this place to any parent considering childcare. It’s where I feel comfortable leaving my precious little ones.

The Goddard School in State College provides a truly wonderful environment for kids. I have seen my child thrive in so many developmental ways, while I have felt supported and informed as a parent. In the glimpses I get of my child without me at Goddard, I see him receive so much love. I highly recommend this school to families in the State College Area.

Our experience at the Goddard school couldn't be more positive. As a newer family, it took no time to feel included into the Goddard family. Not only have they taken fantastic care of our infant, but they have become one of the best parts of our day. The kind morning greetings from the staff and the happy send off at the end of the day sincerely help make our day. We are truly comforted knowing our baby is in the most capable hands. The teachers in the infant room 1 are incredible, and the administrative staff are organized and extremely helpful. The Goddard school made one of the hardest decisions effortless. It takes a village to raise a child, and we trust the Goddard family as a valuable member of our team. We would recommend their school to anyone.

When we moved last summer to the border of Apple Valley/Lakeville, we were apprehensive about moving our son to a new daycare. As a teacher myself, I wanted a school with a sound educational philosophy—but as a mother, I wanted an environment that was as warm and loving as home. We were lucky enough to find both at The Goddard School. We rarely make an investment in something without weighing the costs and benefits. After extensive research on daycares in the area, our decision to enroll our child at Goddard came down to several factors: • Age-specific programs with a varied, play-based curriculum focusing on areas from language/cognitive/social and emotional development to the arts to self-help/life skills • All staff (including the owner) with degrees in education, who exude positive energy and a caring attitude • Top-notch physical facilities, including advanced safety features, large outdoor playground areas, and a bright, welcoming layout • No pricey required school uniforms to have to buy/compel our child to wear My husband and I marvel at how our son is thriving at Goddard in just a few short months. We have such peace-of-mind knowing he is in a place he loves going to every day! Through the Tadpoles app, we get photos on our phone during the day of him engaged in fun activities, like yoga, art projects and themed days. We also receive a detailed daily report on how much he sleeps, his progress on toilet training, how much/what he eats, and what he has learned throughout the day. When we arrive in the morning or leave in the afternoon, everyone at Goddard is genuinely welcoming--greeting us by name like we are part of a family. We couldn’t be happier with our choice!

As other reviewers have said, we took our daycare search very seriously and visited several locations before deciding on Goddard. It ended up being a much simpler choice than we anticipated, as there was simply no comparison. We loved the calm and orderly atmosphere in which the kids seemed happy, loved, engaged and safe. Since starting our son there, we have been thrilled with both the school administration and the teachers in his classroom, and are so thankful to have such a wonderful place for him to learn and play while we are at work.

Excellent program. We were very nervous about finding the right day care/school system for our child. We have checked number of places. We have heard some mixed messages about the Goddard School, so we were bit unsure. However, from the moment, we walked into the Goddard School in Akron, we knew we found the right place for our child. The class size is perfect. Everyone from Marty, Lisa, Karis to all the teachers are amazing. The curriculum is excellent. We feel like it's a perfect "home" away from "home" for our child.

We love the school, and so far we have a great experience. .the staff there is very approachable, friendly, and cooperative...my son's teacher is great and devoted to her work. We had an issue once but we worked great together, and the directors of operations and educations Miss Lisa and Miss Karis are great resources and will go the extra mile for your family. Great job everyone and thanks to the director of the school Marty. I feel that I made the right choice by choosing the Goddard.. I am excited to send him to school everyday though it makes me sad ! But I love how they have a theme for every month. I wish I had that at school when I was his age ;) My son is learning a lot and becoming an independent young man ! Keep up the good work everyone!

We could not be happier with The Goddard School. Every single aspect of their program and facility is extraordinary. The teachers know and care for all of the children. The tadpole app is awesome for getting updates and fun photos about what your child is up to and explains in detail what and how they are learning. The cleanliness of the facility, the fun holiday programs and events, etc etc etc. The owners, Lisa & Aaron, have built an awesome culture that feels like family.

I can't say enough good things about The Goddard School in Salmon Creek! I am a first time mom and to put it lightly, I am very particular about my daughter. She stayed at home with her dad or a nanny until she was three. The idea of transitioning to preschool was very stressful for me. But, Michelle and the entire Goddard team made it go better than I ever could have imagined. My daughter got to visit the school and interact with her teacher before her first day. She got to start off with half days a few days a week and then transition to every day half day and later all day every day. My daughter adjusted great and so did I! I honestly thought that I would call many times a day for an update. In the end, I never called a single time because I had complete trust and faith in the Goddard team. I knew she was safe, having fun, learning and able to get the rest she needed. One of my biggest concerns about going to school was nap time. My daughter had never napped anywhere but home or grandmas before she went to Goddard. And, on her first day napping at school she slept great with no issues. And now naps longer at school than she does at home! The teachers create the perfect environment for day time sleep and it helped my daughter learn to nap successfully anywhere! Lastly, I will say a huge thank you to my daughters teachers for help with potty training. We struggled with potty training and as a first time mom- I often felt lost and frustrated. But, the teachers were experts in this area and really helped my daughter to succeed. They gave suggestions and plenty of encouragement and we finally achieved that milestone. I am so grateful that we chose The Goddard School for our daughter and would recommend them to anyone!

We send our 3 1/2 year old daughter and 18 month old twin boys to Goddard. We were immediately amazed by the curriculum, and speed at which our children were learning. After the first day of school, my daughter came home singing a song, reciting the months of the year. By the end of the week, my 18 month old twin boys were lining up to wash their hands after dinner. At Goddard, they employ a number of creative methods and different resources, to ensure the children are both learning and having fun. Even during inclement weather, they find creative indoor activities to keep the children active during play time, such as a 'bear hunt'. It's obvious that they put a lot of time in outside the classroom, to develop the program. We pay more than some of the other options we looked at for schooling, but I feel like they put everything back into the school, and that we are getting a great value for the price. They use a 'Tadpoles' app, where they send pictures, daily reports, videos, and details of the curriculum, and what your children are learning each week. I was pleased to see they set my twin boys cots next to each other at nap time, which was a request I had not made. Little things, such as this, show that they obviously care about the emotional side of things, as well. One other thing of note, the 'snacks' are more than just snacks. They are healthy and substantial (bananas with yogurt granola and kiwi, pita crackers with goat cheese marinara). I truly feel like they put thought and care into absolutely everything they do at this school. We had a negative experience in the past with my daughter's prior school, and the Goddard school has completely restored our faith and trust. I have no doubt they are getting the best care possible when we drop them off each morning.

After visiting several other day cares in the area, we visited The Goddard School. From the first engagement we had with the Director, to touring the school, it was way more organized and structured than our other visits. After the meeting we felt the most amazing sense of comfort that we'd found the absolute best school for our son. The Goddard School's structure, cleanliness, adherence to protocol, and the overwhelming warmth/openness of their faculty made it easily a top choice. As a working parent, I enjoy knowing our son is safe and happy during the days! We can't thank the entire Goddard School faculty enough! Would absolutely recommend their program to anyone.

My son has been at Goddard less then a year and we have enjoyed this school. The staff is always very friendly and caring. I like that the am snack is fruit & the classrooms have always had a low ratio. I looked at the other daycare in the neighborhood and they had 16 toddlers in 1 classroom whereas at Goddard they have 6 in my son's class. Goddard is more expensive then the other school, but its worth it for the ratio. My son also LOVES the indoor gym. It would be nice if nap time was at 12 and not 1 and if they had mini fridges in each room, but other then that it is a good fit for our family. The turn over has been high, but it is normal in this industry.

I am VERY picky. I want the best for my two boys and I don't apologize for it. I toured many schools and left most feeling defeated. I couldn't understand what most of these places were charging for and WHY. I toured the Goddard School last because it had the highest price point and I wanted to give other places a fair opportunity, as well as gain an unbiased opinion on each of them. When I walked into Goddard, I could see the difference from the main entrance. Parents crowded the main entrance as they waited in turn to use the high-tech security feature (hand-print ID, folks) and no one shoved hurriedly by or snuck past. Parents follow the rules. Once inside the classrooms, I could see the difference right away. My previous tours left me with images of old drab furniture, dirty rugs, and pass-me-down toys. Goddard was incredibly bright and colorful and kids were seated at tables playing with different goop, putty, or paint. I was welcomed with a group hello "Hi, Friend!" I thought, 'Yes, this is where I want my kids to go.' My kids have always been at home with me, but I wanted them to experience a more formal learning environment and socialization. They get that in SPADES. I see images of my son (Tadpoles App) drawing, painting, playing, SMILING! On to the teachers--let me remind parents that being in this job with so many kids is a HARD job. Anyone who can (or pretend to) tolerate that many number of drooling, pooping, sneezy, whiny kids is a SAINT. So this branch of Goddard has many teachers who fall into this category. They also have a few teachers who fall into the category of "Unicorns". These teachers are so amazing I swear they can't be real. My oldest son is with Ms. Lauren and Ms. Kelsey (unicorns) and he has blossomed under their care. I can tell that they genuinely care for my boy. I leave him in their care knowing he will come back to me a brighter, nurtured, social boy. My youngest son is having trouble adjusting, but I know this is par for course. I know that when this stage passes, he will blossom, too.

We have had both of our daughters at Goddard over the past year and a half and absolutely love it! The teachers and staff are extremely talented and creative. My husband and I have watched our girls not only grow in their time there, but excel. Returning to work after maternity leave is never easy, but it is so nice to know that our girls are in classes that are challenging and among friends and teachers that they cannot wait to get back to school to see. Goddard has magically erased some of the guilt I feel as a working mom because I know that when I am away from them, my girls are truly in the best place possible.

I like all the activities they do. The daily report provides an overview of what they've worked on that day and I'm always impressed at how organized it is. The activities are fun but educational and I can already see a great difference with my kids. Very comfortable having them at Goddard because I know they are learning and being taken care of. I also like the garden and utilizing real world things to teach, like going outside and identifying things. The owners are hands on and very caring. When we move this summer, we will still make the drive to Goddard, even though it's a little further, because of how great our experience has been.

My son has been attending The Goddard School since he just turned one. He has been in two different classrooms and both classrooms have made him feel loved and at home. As a parent, especially one with an early childhood background, it is hard to find a place you can leave your child at during the day and not worry about him. Goddard is that place for us. His teachers are nurturing and he learns so much each day! He loves school. When I ask him if he wants to go to school in the morning he screams "Yeahhhhhh". No better sign for me as a parent.

We had our daughter at another (non-Goddard) center for about 4 months before this facility opened. The difference we've seen in her since joining has been astounding. She is absolutely thriving in the Goddard system. Quite honestly we anticipated some natural "growing pains" like you'd see with any new business as the facility started up and grew (we were one of the first families to join), but we've seen none of that....all the staff from the owners to the teachers have kept our daughter's education & development at the absolute forefront at all times. We get daily emails and reports on what she learned and did, and every morning she is excited to go back and learn/explore more. Would recommend to anyone serious about their child's early learning.

Our children have had an amazing experience at the Goddard of Fort Mill. We enrolled our oldest child in the JK program and in only one year, he grew by leaps and bounds academically. I wish we had known about the school when we were first looking for preschools! Now our youngest has started at the school in the 2 year old class and again, I am amazed at his growth. As an educator, I am extremely impressed with the curriculum my children have received, the quality of teachers, and the constant communication with the parents. It is reassuring knowing that my children aren't just attending a "babysitting service" but are actually learning and engaging with science, math, and technology; developing socially and emerging as leaders. If you only knew the daycares/preschools we have experienced in the past, you would understand my passion for this wonderful school! Thank you Bill and Amy!!

Absolutely the best pre-school experience I've ever seen and experienced. My husband and I have been to a few Montessori's in the past due to moving residence, and this is our first Goddard experience. The staff here is extremely warm, professional, motivated and engaged with the students and parents. The facility is new and clean, and the curriculum is top-notch. The culture Travis and Brooke have cultivated here is that of constant improvement, and seeking new ways to specifically address the needs of children. By profession I'm a doctor of Pediatric Psychology, and this school gets my highest rating and recommendation to anyone seeking a place that will find and cultivate the best in your children. My only wish is that they went beyond Kindergarten because we would be very happy to pay for grade-school here.

I cannot say enough good things about the teachers and staff.

Both of my daughters attended the Goddard School from the time they were infants until my oldest was five and my youngest was three. They loved it. Steve, the owner, is incredibly dedicated. He is constantly reinvesting in the school and working to make it better. Tracy, Ciara and all of the teachers are also wonderful. Leaving my babies at day care was the hardest thing I've ever done, but the staff was always conscientious and supportive, and over time, picking up the girls became a challenge--although they were happy to see me, they had so much fun at school that they were reluctant to leave! It has been almost a year since we moved the girls to a location where the oldest could attend kindergarten, and the girls still regularly ask to go back and visit their teachers and friends. We have visited a few times, and always receive a warm welcome. I am so grateful for the excellent care my daughters received when they attended the Goddard School and for the friendship and understanding they continue to provide.

I cannot even begin to describe the experience we have had with this school. Our son started here when he was a little over a year old as a toddler, through pre-school and pre-kindergarten (he is almost 5 now) and we have been delighted with the school. First of all ... let me list the things this is school is NOT .... it is not a day-care, it is not a baby-sitting service, it is not a nanny replacement ...... it is a real school with real education. We believe our son's development and social skills have been defined by his experience here. The teachers are amazing - caring, nurturing, firm and focused. The administration is top-notch with excellent communication, child and parent focus, providing a safe environment and just making the school an amazingly pleasant place. As our son makes his way to kindergarten we believe his start at Goddard sets him up for success.

My son has been at The Goddard School in Cumming GA for two years. it is a wonderful place! the teachers are very well educated and well trained on Early Childhood Education and Health and Safety.The curriculum is top notch! My son comes home everyday talking about how much fun and everything he has learned that day. My son has had lots of challenges with his development and this school has worked with him every step of the way. The management team is super awesome and always ready if you need anything! If you are looking for a a high quality, loving, safe, clean and friendly school for your little one ...... this is the place! We are so glad to be apart of a fantastic school!

Finding a GOOD school for your kid is really tough. But I have been really fortunate when I found the Goddard School specially the Goddard School at Iselin Woodbrige NJ. This school is the best Goddard school I have ever seen. My Kid was enrolled here for 1 year. My Kid attended preschool and Pre-K with wonderful talented teachers. The reason behind this is explained. 1. Infrastructure, air circulation & cleanliness is good as I have never felt any fault smell/cleanliness issues. 2. The Management is very approachable & gives out the solution on behalf of parents. They understands situation and always helps parents. 3. The curriculum is really good and teaches variety of things. 4.The kind of teachers in this Goddard school are not only teaches and grooms the child but also makes the child a good human being which is very important in living life. As a moment of Gratitude I would specially like to Thank Pre-K teachers for educating and teaching good habits to my kid.

My 2 year old daughter LOVES The Goddard School! From the low teacher/student ratios, the well thought out lesson plans, and detailed daily reports (including photos!!!!), as parents, we couldn't be happier!! Another great thing that we love is that the owner is on-site and accessible for any questions we may have! The teachers are definitely of a higher caliber than any others we have experienced in past facilities. Everyone is so caring and loving. In the short time that we have been enrolled, I have already noticed a great improvement in the vocabulary and communication skills of my daughter. We are so glad that we made the decision to move our child to The Goddard School!

I can't say enough awesome things about this school. Both of my children went to this school and I couldn't be more happy with the experiences. My oldest is now 10 and my youngest is 6 years old and we still keep in touch with the teachers and administration because we feel they are part of our family. If you want your children to be loved, nurtured and learn in a safe environment, look no further.

Goddard is a great facility. The school is clean and well organized. The staff is amazing. The teachers do an outstanding job of balancing fun and education. They are adaptable, easy to work with, and helpful. The administration is amazing. They are great to work with and care about each child that is part of their school. I am thrilled with my experience at Goddard!

Best decision we ever made was to enroll our son at the Goddard School! He is so excited to go every day! He has excelled so much in the 15 months that he has been there! The teachers and staff are incredible! They are so helpful and caring. They truly want to see my son succeed! I would recommend the Goddard School to anyone that is looking for something more than traditional child care! The education and caring enviroment my son receives at the Goddard School is worth every penny!

We love our school! I am a mother of three; two of my own and one step son. We have experiences with three different centers in the area. My step-son attended Twinsburg, Goddard from 2 months to graduation (awesome pre-school as well!). After deciding to go back to work full time, we enrolled our other two in a different nearby center due to Twinsburg being a bit too far and Hudson full at the time. I could go on and on with a list of comparisons between schools, but the bottom line is, The Goddard School offers a much better overall program. This is not a daycare. This is an early childhood education program you and your child will love. The the staff is friendly and educated. We are greeted everyday with smiling faces and a positive attitude. The daily reports are personalized for your child. I love how my children are so eager to go to school every morning and hearing from them all the new things they learn every day. I do now and will continue to reccomend this school to anyone looking for a wonderful pre-school experience.

Very happy with our son's progress under the care of Goddard's professionals. From working with us cooperatively on potty training to facilitating his love of learning and books (and occupying him during nap time with reading when he steadfastly refuses to nap), the staff have his total well-being in mind. We really like the email photos through the day and comprehensive daily report at the end of the day, and well as the frequent opportunity to play outside in the fresh air in the ample and secure "green space" adjoining the building. He looks forward to going to school every day, and that is the best indicator of the quality of the program and dedication of the faculty and administration. You won't be disappointed.

The Moment I walked into the Chanhassen Goddard School, I knew it was where my son was going to start his educational future. The beautiful, clean and well kept building, the glass windows when you enter with always busy, yet smiling staff anchored by Valarie and Fred. My 16 month old son walked into his room, and messed his pants. Being the unprepared, first time mom with no back up diaper..Valarie who was giving me the tour, just handled everything with such class and kindness...We enrolled right away. When my daughter was born 4 years later, the Goddard team was one of my fist calls to make sure they had space in the classroom for Brinley..and they made it happen. She happens to be one of those lucky kids with a dairy allergy and the Goddard team is always on it making sure she has everything she needs. When you love what you do, it shows. The Goddard Chanhassen team knows that childcare is an investment, and they honor the parents that choose to invest with them. When you sign up with them, you become apart of their family. Not only did my son, and now my daughter enjoy their time with the team, but they were REALLY ready to begin Kindergarten, and I have to thank the Goddard Chanhassen team for this.

Both of my boys have atteneded the Hudson Goddard since they were 8 weeks old. They are now 3 and almost 2. They love coming to school each day and I am alway amazed at the new things they learn. They have grown attached to all of their teachers and have always felt comfortable and happy!

Our third boy is now with this Goddard and some of the teachers have taught all three of our boys. The older two are now students at The Challenge School of CCSD, which is very competitive and selective in their admission criteria. We credit much of their admission success to their daycare experience, especially for our second son who attended both daycare and Kindergarten at this Goddard. It's obvious that the owner, Sloan, is very committed to setting the bar high when it comes to educating the kids. Any daycare can babysit, but it takes a true pursuit of excellence to highly educate young kids under 5. If you're just looking for a cheap babysitter, this might not be the place but if you have high standards and expectations regarding your child's education, then this is a great place for you.

From the moment we walked in for a tour of the school, we knew that was the right place for our daughters. Different to other locations we visited, kids are happy and having fun, and it is evidently that teachers and assistants really love what they do and are truly committed to their job. The staff is also extremely respectful and patient. We noticed it since the first time we called in for information. We really love the positive atmosphere and learning environment of the school. It is a very welcoming place. They have an ‘’open door policy’ allowing us to visit at any time and see the kids enjoy while playing and learning. The school is always spotless, organized and decorated with new art projects every week. The facility is beautifully maintained, and the security of the kids is taken as a top priority. The owners are very friendly and approachable and have a seriously committed to the quality of education and, if not both, at least one of them is always at the school and pretty often greeting and interacting with the parents, students and their staff. All of the teachers and assistants we have met so far are always very pleasant and cheerful. It is evident that they enjoy what they do, and give the extra mile to create a really positive environment for the kids. My daughters have developed special bonds with most of them. Our daughters come home happy and excited about their day which is a great feeling for working parents. Our oldest daughter actually wants to go to school on the weekend which shows how much she loves and enjoys it. We can’t say enough great things about the Friendswood Goddard School, and each day we are very grateful for the good care and quality of education that our daughters are getting. It isn't easy working full-time and sending our little daughters to daycare, but having The Goddards as the place they go every day certainly set our minds at ease. :-)

Having had a child previously attend the Goddard in Chanhassen our family was thrilled to see a Goddard open in the south metro. Our one year old daughter has been attending school there since it opened in November and we have been nothing but pleased with her care. One would anticipate a new school to have "growing pains" but we have not experienced any. The environment is warm and welcoming and the staff go over and above to make sure our daughter is getting excellent care. We very much appreciate the flexibility in curriculum and daily structure as our daughter's needs change as she gets older. The communication between the staff and parents is great and we love the daily pictures that are sent to us. We highly recommend this school for parents looking for childcare.

Absolutely love The Goddard. My daughter went to the center in West Chester, PA and now currently attends the center in Bear, DE. There is nothing but positive things I have to say. First, I am comfortable leaving my daughter while I go to work as I know she is safe, well taken care of. The facility is kept clean and sanitized. Teachers do a wonderful job with the children and are active. Each day the children are learning/ doing something new. I wouldn't put my child in another place. The Goddard is one of the best places around.

My kiddo goes here because the teachers are knowledgeable and educated. Meaning they are not only working with Lauren on the alphabet, but also exposing her to science, history and math.

We recently switched our son over to the Goddard School from a nearby daycare and we couldn't be more pleased! At first we were concerned at the price difference but we learned very quickly that it was worth every penny. Curriculum is the focus and my son has learned more in a month than he did in a year at his old school. Accredited teachers and an amazing facility that focuses on teaching makes the Goddard School the best option in the area for your little one. A++

I am very pleased with how my children are treated and loved at the Goddard School. I am happy with the way the classroom is managed. Ms. Nighat does a fantastic job of managing her classroom. Anytime I walk into my child's classroom, everything is peaceful and primed for learning. My daughter has learned a great deal in Ms. Nighat's classroom and I appreciate everything Ms. Nighat and Ms. Alaura do for my daughter. I am also grateful for the smooth transition that my son has went through while starting in his new classroom. I feel like Ms. Vanessa is doing a great job with the kids. I also am happy with the many special guests and programs that Goddard provides on a regular basis.

As a former employee I must say this child care facility is an amazing place to work at. The teachers and staff truly care about the children in their care.

We started our son a couple months ago. As soon as I went on the tour I knew it was a great fit for us. The environment is all geared around learning and is well organized. I like that I had the option to bring my own lunch, or order from their catering company which had several meal options to chose from (Gluten free, vegetarian, etc.). My son is in the early pre-school room. Our teacher and the staff at Goddard Lakeville are so nice and helpful. We feel like it was a great decision. It has a school atmosphere with a family run feeling. Mary Sue, the owner and her sister are there to greet us in the mornings, and Christie is the nicest manager and knows us by name.

Our family absolutely loves The Goddard School. As soon as we walked through the doors Jennifer, the owner, and Bronwyn, the director, welcomed us with open arms. We knew immediately that this was where we wanted our son to be. Our son started when he was 2 coming from an in home daycare and immediately started becoming more vocal and social. The teachers are so amazing and really love our children. It was a no brainer to send our second child to The Goddard School. Our children feel so safe and loved there. We love the curriculm and feel that our 4year old is gaining all the skills and knowledge to prepare him for kindergarden...as well as making great friends and having fun. It is fun to watch our 18 month growing and learning so much so quick. He is able use sign language to communicate with us and loves all of the music and art that he gets to do at school. We could not be happier with the choice we made to send our children to the Goddard School.

Many of the Goddard School's staff members have been there for a long time. While new "glittery" childcare facilities are opening up nearby, nothing holds a candle to care givers who have the experience and compassion that Goddard's staff has. Goddard School came highly recommended from friends who have send their children there over the years. We made the right choice.

Since the new ownership has taken over the school has a different " positive" atmosphere. My son is extremely happy there and loves going there. He has learned so much and been able to retain it. He loves yoga, chess, and sign language. Great location in a safe area. Mrs. Carla in the office is always polite and wants the best for your child. Evin is the new owner who always has a smile on her face and knows your child personally.

We have been with the Goddard family for 8 years now. Our older son started in the infant room with the AMAZING Ms. Dorritt, and graduated from Pre-K with Ms. Gina very well prepared for kindergarten. Our younger son is currently in the preschool program with his WONDERFUL teacher, Ms. Jessica. The administrative staff and the lead teachers are really in the "business of kids". They understand child development, provide an enriching curriculum, and are over-the-top with safety. We've looked other places, but consider Bryan Scheff's Goddard to be on top in our area.

I have had a wonderful experience with this school. Both of my children have gone there since they were about 4 months old. My daughter graduated from the Pre-K program, and is now a very successful first grader. She definitely learned lots of skills while attending Goddard, her Kindergarten teacher was very pleased with how many sight words the Goddard Kids had down. My son is 2 and a half, so we still have a couple years left, and he has also learned so much. He loves counting and saying his ABC's, and singing us all the new songs he learns. Both of our children always loved all of the activities, and had the most wonderful teachers. The ability for the Kindergartners to attend the half day program at Hillsdale by catching the bus at Goddard was also very convenient. They were dropped off at Goddard right at lunch time, and finished the afternoon with the Goddard Kindergartners. This is very convenient for Working Parents, and helps to enforce the important skills learned in Kindergarten. I have recommended this school to others, and will continue to do so.

We love Goddard. Over the past 3 years, we have had all 3 of our children at Goddard. Perhaps most relevant for the purposes of a review - all 3 of our children still attend Goddard. The care they get from their teachers is amazing and you can see it in our kids eyes every day when they go running to them. We have also received great communication from the administrators should a concern about our children ever arise. Cost - childcare is costly today. While we do not consider Goddard inexpensive and money is an object to us, we still choose to send our children there because of the great hands they are in. It is worth it. Surprises- There have been no surprises for us. Everything that was conveyed to us in the beginning and documented has been done at or above our expectations. Reviews- It can be hard to use reviews when making a big decision. We are writing this review as current parents paying tuition for their children at Goddard. However, you don't have to take our word for it. We suggest that you go visit Goddard in Buford (Yes, the one on South Bogan in Buford) and see for yourself. In our opinion you won't find better hands for your children to be in, which is what Goddard is all about.

Bless my kid's heart, she is a stubborn one, and getting her to listen to Mama is like pulling teeth! Goddard is not only getting my child ready for school academically, but instilling important skills in social behavior. She "makes good choices" because her teachers tell her to do so, because she values those wonderful ladies and wants to do right by them. Acadmic-wise, I feel that Goddard's curriculum is engaging and challenging, yet appropriate for the children's ages and abilities. Not only the teachers are great, but the director is fabulous and extremely knowledgeable. The owners don't just "own" the place - they are VERY involved with our children as well, and make it feel like a family. If I could keep my daughter in there through college, I would! We are SO pleased with our time at Goddard!

My son is currently enrolled at this Goddard School and our family could not be happier with our experience. We previously had a part-time nanny and enrolled here when I went back to work full-time. Clearly there is an adjustment period for a 2 year old going from one-on-one care to a group setting, but my son has thrived since day 1 at this school. He loves the kids, the teachers, the owner, and the director, and truly is excited to go to school each day. He literally skips or runs to his classroom every morning. On top of that, the school's curriculum is wonderful, the rooms are always clean, and everyone is always super friendly and accommodating. And the staff is just fun in general! Our whole family enjoys the daily report cards and all the daily pictures, too. We are blessed to have found The Goddard School.

This is truly an absolutely phenomenal School and my Son loves it. The Staff and Owner are exceptional and the School and Rooms are spotless and constantly/methodically cleaned. My 4 year old is writing his name, counting, telling me stories about what he learns daily. Moreover, as a Dad (and I am sure many Mom's feel the same) who feels guilty about not being actively involved enough with my Kids, I find receiving the daily "end of school day emails" that note what my Son has done all day and the highlights of something he said, to be awesome. These allow me to ask him about his day intelligently and ask him what he said and why, he absolutely loves that. Keep up the great work here everyone. If you are thinking about enrolling your Kids here, I can assure you it will be one of the best decisions you have ever made. My Son runs to his class in the mornings!

My 6 month old little girl goes to the Goddard School in Ballantyne and I highly recommend them. Faith has learned so much and I truly believe she is leaps and bounds ahead of other's her age, who haven't had this opportunity. All the teachers are trained to protect, teach, and provide for each student. It's a top notch learning institution and I feel safe that my child is a part of The Goddard School. What I enjoy most is the daily email... with picture... on what your child has learned that day... you can also access it with an app on your iPhone. Thank you Susan and Tana for all that you do for Faith.

If you're looking for a friendly place that provides a natural foundation for early childhood learning, Goddard won't let you down! Our daughter had her first "child care" experience with Goddard and loves it. The teachers helped to make the transition for our 2 1/2 year old go smoothly. Goodard is new to the south metro and recently opened a new/convenient location in Lakeville (right behind the soon-to-be Hy Vee). We'd highly recommend parent(s) in the area looking to definitely stop in and tour - and see if Goddard is a good fit for your family and child care needs.

My four year old just started pre k at Goddard at the beginning of the year. She had been in another daycare from the age of 18 months, and in just a months time at Goddard we see such a drastic difference at how much more comfortable and happy she is at Goddard. She talks the whole way home about her day and everything she's learned. Her transition was also a piece of cake! We stressed for weeks about how hard it was going to be for her to start over at a new school and her first day she walked right in as though shed always been apart of the class! Her teachers have done an amazing job at making her feel comfortable and welcoming her right into the class. They really do love what they do!

Our children would not be who they are without the love and care from the teachers and staff at The Goddard School . Recently we made a family decision to move our boys to a new school. While the decision was hard, we had the understanding from Goddard to leave because we wanted what was best for the boys. Two weeks into our new school experience, we were hearing loudly and clearly from our boys that they were not happy and that they wanted to go back to Goddard. Happy, healthy children are what matters the most to us, so we listened and took action. With one phone call and few email exchanges-no questions asked, Sharon and Jeanette were able to fit our boys back into their same classrooms at Goddard-one immediately and one the following week. The style of teaching and the family atmosphere at The Goddard School, truly make our busy lives so much less stressful. Both boys are happy to go to school and love being at Goddard. Rebecca

Four years ago we joined the Goddard family and four years later we are extremely happy with our experience. During the week our kids spend more than 40 hours with the staff at Goddard, so finding a day care that provides nurturing, caring, academic structure along with a family environment was very important to us. Goddard is that place, we feel very thankful to have them as part of our family.

We started at The Goddard School in November 2015 after being at another preschool. We have been very impressed and our son absolutely loves it. We like the educational background and experience of the teachers in the classroom. We like the consistency with the teachers in the classroom and the consistent schedule that is followed. Educational programs and projects designed for the classroom are very thorough and age appropriate; the classroom is set up to provide learning along with fun for the child. We love the feedback received through the Tadpole app relating what was learned during the day; this allows parents to continue with the theme and play/work with the child at night and weekends on things learned during the day/week. They also send pictures of your child during the day which is very comforting to a parent. We like that there is an owner onsite every day and that there are two directors and one assistant director at the school; this assures that someone is always available to answer any questions you may have and they all seem very knowledgeable about what is happening with your child. We like that the school acknowledges what is needed to get into the local magnet school and help prepare your child for the testing. We also like the indoor gym which has several fun things to play with. They have an outside play area with lots of fun activities, and it is fenced in for safety of the child. We can't say enough good things about The Goddard School!

All 4 of our children have had the good fortune of being enrolled at the Goddard School - Princeton, starting with our oldest who was there as an infant and all the way through, and including the kindergarten enrichment program. Almost 10 years later, we continue to love the school - we have made fond memories and have many close friendships (kids and parents) that all began at the school. We have been so pleased with the staff, including the owner, the directors, and the teachers who have all provided our children with a nurturing environment to learn and grow. The solid foundation set by the girls' experiences at the Goddard School continues to serve them well as they move through the school system. We would highly recommend the Goddard School - Princeton.

My daughter is 2.5 years old and has had nothing but the best teachers looking after her at this Goddard location. It also has new owners onsite who genuinely care about the families who attend. They are constantly having special events for the kids (ie. this past weekend they had 10 tons of snow delivered for the children & Elsa the snow queen!). My daughter only goes three half days a week but she is treated by ALL the staff as if she is there full time and part of the Goddard family. We also have daily updates & photos emailed to my husband and I which we enjoy very much. I honestly wouldn't send my little girl anywhere else.

Our two children have been with this Goddard School for almost 4 years. The teachers and staff have become an extension of our family. Many of the other parents have become close friends. Our children are extremely happy to go to school each day, and are happy when we pick them up, although they often would rather stay at school than come home... Equally as important, they are learning both the academic and social skills they will need when they start school Happy, healthy, and leaning lots. Not much more you can ask for your children. We're sad to be leaving as we move across the country, and will miss everyone.

We have been sooo very pleased with Goddard!!! They have been amazing. It's such a nice feeling to see my children hug on the teachers and staff. My twins are 19 months old and have been in the program since they were a year. Since then they've learned a ton. I'm a mom, not a teacher, so it's nice to see them learn things that they may not learn while at home. They know what "school" means and when I tell them they are going, they get very excited. Everything is so engaging and interactive. They really teach them, it's not just daycare. My husband and I are often blown away when they push their chair in when they're done eating, put their trash away, use sign language, and so on. And it's not just my children's teachers who know them, it's everyone. From the director, to the owner, to even other teachers. It's a really nice feeling knowing that I'm dropping them off there. Kudos!

We are happy we have chosen to send our daughter to The Goddard School. She started attending at 6 weeks old and now just over two years old. The staff have been extremely respectful and patient with our decision to use cloth diapers and to now potty train her. They have time and time again reminded us why we choose to keep her in their care. It is not easy to be away from our daughter, but the loving teachers have made it bearable. The Goddard School continues to help our daughter learn, laugh, and to feel loved. The teachers are more than caregivers and we hope they realize the positive impact they are having in the lives of our daughter and so many other children. Thank you for your passion for children.

I enrolled my children in The Goddard School approximately two and a half months ago. My daughters are 1 and almost 3. Both of them stayed at home previously, so this was our first experience with child care / preschool. The Goddard School is absolutely not child care, it is preschool regardless of the child's age. I was impressed with the immediate results that my children displayed and my eldest wants to go to school every single day now. My one year old's fine motor development from all of the activities in class is incredible. The staff is friendly and always helpful with any request or accommodation you may need. The thing I found best is that they will help you guide your child in however you currently parent them so there are no conflicting messages. How they interact and teach the children is exactly what fell in line with my vision. While the school is on the higher end in terms of tuition rates, the old adage is that you get what you pay for, and the Goddard School is worth every penny.

We enrolled our two year old son at Goddard in October 2015 and we couldn’t be any happier with the school. When we first came in the director, Ms Carolyn, took us around and explained their program and toured the school. We were impressed with the curriculum and activities they had for all the classrooms. Not only do they offer the core subjects, but they incorporate ASL, Yoga, Mandarin, Arts, and STEM. They have a great meal plan with a vegetarian option. The safety and security of the school was also impressive. There is a palm scanner and pin code to enter the school, special doors that will never pinch a child's’ fingers, gated and fenced play area only accessible from the classrooms, and most importantly was the location. The school is not on a busy main road and it blends in completely with the surrounding neighborhood. It’s nice that there are no ‘real life’ distractions for the kids when they are playing outside . Yes it is a little of an inconvenience to get off the main road during drop off and pick up during rush hour, but it is well worth it for the peace of mind that there isn’t a maniac driving by at high speeds right in front of the school. At first, like normal children, our son didn’t take well to going to school. But with the help and caring of the teachers and staff within a week he loved it. The staff was great with getting him adjusted to school, and made sure we were aware of his well being. Throughout the day Ms Carolyn would call us and send pictures to tell us how he was. As a new experience for us they did a great job in keeping us informed. The Daily reports and pictures we get are great at keeping us informed every day. It let us know not only of the things the learned but also gives us a information on naps, potty training, meals, and the social and emotional aspects of our child’s day. After being with the school for a few months now we can see a real difference in our son. Before we enrolled he had a verbal developmental delay. By the end of the first month it was gone and he has been a chatter box since. Additionally his thirst for knowledge has grown along with his problem solving and critical thinking skills, his attention span has increased, his social skills have improved, and a positive impact on his attitude and demeanor. The Owner, Ms Asha, has been nothing but wonderful. She along with the directors, Ms Carolyn and Ms Geraldine make the school great. The teachers and staff genuinely care for the kids and take the time to address any needs or concerns we have had. As a parent to know our child is in good loving hands everyday is the greatest feeling in the world.

Our daughter started going to the Goddard School in Sparks in October 2015, when she was 8 weeks old. We appreciate all the diverse, age-appropriate activities the Goddard School at Sparks offers. We also love how attentive, invested, and communicative the teachers are, the end-of-day reports, and getting photo updates throughout the day. The latter has been such a treat - they've really helped me as a new mom in adjusting to life back at work. We value the school's open-door policy, as it allows us to visit our daughter during work.

My 9 y/o daughter started at the Goddard School when she was 2. Our 5 y/o started there when she turned 1. We have always been very pleased with the organized and professional manner in which this school is run. Steve, Tracy, and Ciara are always friendly and interact with the kids very well. I have always been amazed at the level of dedication to education that the Goddard School carries out. They actually create educational lesson plans and carry them out. It isn't the cheapest daycare in town, but I believe they provide the best quality of education in town. We have experienced one other daycare in town and are so happy that we switched to the Goddard School. Highly recommended!

Our experience at the Goddard has been more than great! Our daughter started in the infant room and has recently been moved up to first steps. I can't say enough about the teacher's from the infant room up. They have been more than loving and caring with our daughter! The curriculum is fantastic. Our daughter is learning to sigh "more" and "please" so it's easier for us and her to communicate and understand her needs. Their program goes all the way up to kindergarten so we're set until she's 5! All the staff is extremely warm and friendly. Always cheerful! My wife and I couldn't be happier that we chose this school for our daughter. I would highly recommend this school to anyone seeking infant to kindergarten!

I have to say that this School is on the top of their game when it comes on to all aspects of the child's holistic development. Our two sons went to this school and we travelled from Old Bridge. The owner has an open-door policy with parents, which is great. The office staff are always pleasant and the teachers did their best to make sure we knew what went on each day, on their detailed daily report. There is an obvious attention to detail at this school as there was always improvement and changes being made to the art on walls, inside classrooms and on the windows as you walk down the hallway. The school and surroundings are clean and safe which was one of the main reasons we chose this school and particularly this Goddard School over similar services in a 20-30 miles radius. If you are looking for a school for you little one, this school is a winner .

My family joined Goddard 3 months ago with our 1.5 year old daughter in toddler room. Goddard has exceeded our expectations in every way. The staff is personable and caring and the teachers are amazing! I would like to thanks all of them specially Jennifer(Owner),Jennifer(director) Maria and Arshley(teacher) for taking wonderful care to my daughter.I have seen the difference in how an experience staff can implement the curriculum in a fun, yet meaningful and focused manner. I highly recommend this school

I couldn't be any happier with how well this school is run and the staff. My son didn't like another day care we took him to so we tried Goddard and his reaction was completely different. He goes running into school saying good morning to everyone. The facility is immaculately clean and the best part is that it is secure. Until the staff gets to know you, they don't just let you or anyone else in. This, I believe is one of the best features of the school because my children's safety is my number one priority and theirs as well. The outside play area is so nice. The kids are never bored when we walk in they are ALWAYS learning. The system used to send daily reports by email is fantastic, we know what he ate, how long he napped and what he learned so that we can work on the same things at home, and we get pictures! This school and its staff goes above and beyond to accommodate families. We are thrilled to have our son be a part of this school and will probably send him to the elementary school just because the experience has been so fantastic. Thank you Goddard for everything you do!

We loved our time at The Goddard School in Franklin. Our children came out of this program fully prepared for their kindergarten experiences, and loved every moment they got to spend here. The Director is amazing, the Administrative staff is wonderful, and the teachers are fantastic. We still go back for special occasions to see everyone, and it's like seeing family again. You can't go wrong at this facility. They love your children like their own, and it shows. Well worth the investment.

We have been at The Goddard School for three years now and have had a great experience with this school! My son has learned so much since attending this school. The administration, teachers, and staff are all so friendly and truly love the kids. You can see it in the way they interact with the children. The safety and security of the children is their utmost priority. The children get such a well rounded experience here, Yes, they work on curriculum such as letters, numbers, site words, etc. but they also have enrichment activities in the afternoons such as chess, music, art, Spanish, etc. My son absolutely loves going to school here and has made a lot of new friends. Since he has been here so long and has moved up with a lot of the same children, I feel like it's a small family. I would recommend this school to anyone!

Sugar Land Goddard School is a GREAT SCHOOL! Teachers are very diversified and professional. Owner Ms. Kathy is there every day greeting us in the morning and making sure everything is okay at end of the day. We have a 4 year old and a toddler there. Our children are well taken care and loved and well educated. Sometime incidents do happen at school but the admin team always notify us right away and Ms. Kathy is always there for us, proactively addressing any issue there might be. The school has a very positive and loving environment overall.

Our 2 yr old, has a bit of a developmental delay & has been in weekly PT & OT sessions since the age of 6 months old. We started The Goddard School in October 2015. He has been there now for 2 months and we have been able to reduce his PT & OT to once a month! His language has also EXPLODED! This is all thanks to The Goddard School and their fantastic staff that push your child to do more in a fun and loving environment. The first day of drop off, which usually means tears and a toddler clinging to your leg. NOPE. Our son gave me hugs and kisses, waved bye then went about playing with a truck just like he had been doing it forever. What an awesome feeling to know that your child is comfortable being without you. A BIG Thank you to The Goddard staff.

We have been a part of the Goddard Family for 15 months. Before our first child was born, my wife and I did what any anxious new parents would do. We visited dozens of schools. Everyone had pretty much the same pitch, offered similar programs and were all relatively priced similar. We had narrowed it down between this Goddard school and Primrose off of McDermott. Primrose was slightly cheaper, a little closer and also provided lunches. After calling both Schools with some final questions, I knew after I hung up the phone that we would be bestowing our trust in Goddard to care for our child. After introducing my self on the phone, Amanda was the only one I did not have to reintroduce my self to again. She was able to tell me who I was, my wife’s name, due date and our anticipated enrollment date from our initial visit 3 weeks prior. There is a feeling of warmth and comfort that radiates from the owner that was missing from our visits to other schools. Looking back, leaving our child in the care of people we did not know was at that point the hardest day of our lives. What made each day easier were the primary care takers. Being new parents with family half way across the country most of my knowledge on raising a baby came from reading books. The teachers gave us lots of advice from raising their own children as well as caring for hundreds of others. For example, our daughter has very sensitive skin and was breaking out in rashes. We tried everything our Dr. advised us to do and the school even changed their soaps and detergents to see if something they were doing was causing it. The teacher suggested we try a particular lotion and just like that our daughter was cured. There are numerous more examples I could give but it shows you the teachers go above and beyond. As our daughter got older she moved on from class to class and it was harder on my wife and I then it was for our daughter because each time we had so much faith in her current teacher. It is amazing to see how quickly our daughter has developed and socializes with others. Our daughter is 19 months now and it takes a lot longer to drop her off in the morning and to leave in the afternoon because she has to say hello and give hugs good-bye to every teacher and helper that has been a part of her life. If actions speak louder then words, then my review is pretty much done. To my wife and I what I stated above is what is most important to us. Some other great things about the school that we have experienced so far are the individual daily reports that have pictures included. They also offer parents night out once a month, which we have benefited from numerous times. The owners are great at decorating for the season and holidays. The school also puts together great events for Halloween and breakfast with Santa for Christmas. If you ever have any concerns, they do their best to rectify the problem. To conclude my review, the staff sets this school a part from others and when our second child is born in the New Year, their first day of school will be a lot easier on the wide and I.

The Goddard School of Pasadena is an excellent facility. The administration and staff are so kind, understanding and knowledgeable. I have been sending my oldest daughter to this school since she was 18 month old. She excelled in social skills, she can count in two languages. She can write her letters and she is not even 4 years old yet. The school is giving her excellent education and its is a safe environment to send your child. This school has an amazing summer program, they do a lot of fun activities for the kids. Our family loves this school so much that we already send our 2 month old there. I highly recommend this school.

My daughter has attended the Goddard school for the past 2 yrs and I have been amazed at how much she has grown and excelled! Everyday when I drop her off l receive nothing but smiles and positivity from all of the staff, showing that they truly love what they do and that's it's more then just a job. When my daughter 1st began going to Goddard, she had a bit of seperation anxiety (admittedly, i prob did too) but her teachers made sure it didn't last very long. After the 1st week, I would drop her off and instead of clinging to me, she would kiss me goodbye and run to give her teacher a hug. I love that they send daily pics, videos and notes that update me throughout the day on what my child is learning. It always puts a smile on my face when I get daily pics of my daughter playing with her friends and smiling from ear to ear. Aside from the fun aspect, my daughter is above her level in every area. She can count in both English and Spanish, write her name and even read a handful of words, all at 3 yrs old! Trust me when I say that if you want a positive learning environment where your child can learn & grow, all while having fun doing it, Goddard is the place to send them! Thank you Sandra (owner) & staff for all you have done for our family but most of all, thanks for the piece of mind I have daily knowing that my daughter is in a safe, fun learning environment :-)

Not only is the facility exceptionally clean, cheerful and full of fun, the administration and teachers are the best I've experienced! They all support each family's individual wishes in terms of raising their child and do an excellent job of communicating with parents. The administration and staff are always available and willing to meet to discuss a child's progress and answer any questions a parent may have. Parents are allowed to join in at lunch or stop by whenever they want which is reassuring that the children are being cared for the best way possible. My daughter and I have grown to love the staff at this Goddard, they are an extension of our family. You couldn't ask for a better place to bring your child. When I was shopping care facilities, I wanted a place that was as good as if not better than my child's experiences at home. This Goddard met the mark; in fact, they exceeded my expectations.

I highly recommend this school for anyone who is looking for a place where their child(ren) will excel and love to attend every day. We are discovering new things, she is learning how to sign and communicate, her pediatrician has noticed she is advanced in development (sometimes way too smart for her own good), and adores being there. She has been attending since 6 weeks old, and we definitely saw a change for the better (after a month or two of transitions) once the new director came in, and we can't say enough of how much we love it there now.

Our experience with this Goddard school started about 7 years ago. Our daughter was first to go here and now our son has been at Goddard for almost two years. From the moment you walk in the door there is a sense of welcoming and security. It is very structured and organized but also fun and seems to run smoothly. You never get a sense of stress or signs of frustration. Everyone always has a smile and all the staff work very well together. This is all so important as a parent to know whoever may be around your child is someone with a positive attitude but also someone who is encouraging learning and good behavior. I'm sad that after this VPK year our experience with this school will be over because the bar has been set high for future educators.

My son (now over a year) has been going to the Goddard School since he was 3 months old. Not only does he LOVE going but the teachers and staff have always been amazing to me. As a new mom I had all the worries and didnt know what to do at different stages with him. They helped guide me on feeding changes, development, and answering any questions I had. They have also helped with MANY craft project I couldnt wrestle him into doing. My son had a dairy allergy for his first year and I feed him very specifically and they have always been amazing working around his diet needs. The teachers there become like family and truly care about you and your child. I feel completly confident in brining my son (and soon to be two kids) to the Goddard School every day. *Update* Now my second little one is with the teachers at teh Goddard School. Always hard leaving your 3 month old with others but I know she is in caring hands. Wouldnt take her any other place! My son has learned so much and always surprises me with what he has learned there.

We absolutely love the school! We have twin boys and cloth diapered them when beginning with the school in 2014. The school was very accommodating and easy to work with. My boys have learned so many educational and social skills while at the school the past 2 years. Anytime an issue comes up, the staff works with us based on the boys' needs. My husband and I do not have a bad thing to say about the staff or the owner. We are so pleased with the investment we are making in our children's educational foundation.

My daughter started at the Goddard school when she was 5 months old. Before sending her, I worried about her sleep routine and how she would transition to bottle feeding all day. The nannies in her classroom are amazing, they rocked her to sleep and introduced creative methods to help her transition to the bottle. Once she got accustomed to her daycare routine, they started sleep training her, and in a matter of a few days, she started to fall asleep by herself! In the beginning, I would show up to the daycare unannounced at different times during the day, and I never saw any of the babies crying inconsolably. Other than the normal amount of slight fussing that babies do, all of the children are always in a pleasant mood. The nannies engage all of the babies in constructive play (educational toys, painting, tummy time, and music--no TV in the classrooms). Every staff member at the school knows my daughter by name, and they always have smiles on their faces while working! I have had an extremely positive experience at this Goddard School, and plan on keeping my daughter enrolled throughout the years, until she is ready for Kindergarten!

We have loved our time at The Goddard School Vinings! After moving from Chicago in July, we visited a few schools in the area, and ultimately felt the most comfortable at this location. The new ownership is committed and involved, the administrative staff is friendly, informed and helpful, and the teachers are outstanding. Kind, respectful, engaged, dedicated, patient, well-trained, outgoing and conversational - all of these attributes are what I want in the people interacting with my toddler every day. The teachers (and we've been in 2 classes already because my daughter transitioned to the next level up) have all been (without exception) incredibly good with the kids - from both an educational and an emotional/care perspective. Our daughter's skills and learning and sociability and personality have all skyrocketed since she started here, and I attribute much of that to the rigorous play education that The Goddard School employs. I have great conversations with the teachers before and after school each day, and they truly know and love our daughter. They ask great questions, they answer mine, the have input and suggestions (helpful for a first-time mom!) and are guiding me along in this process. For the value (and it's not cheap, but that was not our desire), the quality of care is outstanding. We utilize the organic food catering company, and yet are pleased with the snacks the school offers. If you are reading old reviews - rethink and revisit - the school is really an incredible place to be. My daughter and any future kids will be here as long as we're in the area. Thanks, TGS!

The turnover rate is low, which is rare in this industry. In addition, the owners are always seeking ways to invest in the school's curriculum to keep the children challenged. My son has learned so much more than I would have time to teach him. I highly recommend this Goddard to any parent looking for quality childcare.

I like the small/family environment feel with flexible and individualized care while having the more advanced amenities of a corporate-style child care facility. For example, it's easy for me to speak with the owner (if needed) about my child's care/needs, but there is higher security, tech-y check-in/out process, and fantastic daily communication through the Tadpoles App. Best of both worlds.

The Edmond Northeast Goddard School is an Incredibly nurturing and fantastic learning environment. Loving teachers, enriching curriculum and clean environment are so important in finding the right fit for your family's adjustment to working with children. My mind is put to ease when I receive a picture each day of my child and an extensive individualized schedule of what/how much he ate, every activity done, how long he slept, and any other pertinent information. We've had all 3 of our children attend this school. There is no where else I'd want to take them. The owners make it a loving and homey environment.

The teachers challenge our child intellectually, and I have been absolutely amazed at what my son has learned since beginning. He started at the school 6 months ago not knowing how to write/read/count etc; he now knows how to write and read and count exceptionally well, and for a 4 year old I feel that is huge. This is way more than a day care, and I feel confident that he will be ready for Kindergarten because of the awesome teachers.

Our daughter attended the Goddard School in Plainfield for almost four years before she graduated Kindergarten and entered the first grade. Throughout our time at Goddard we noticed a definite distinction between them and other early learning facilities. The team of teachers, directors and owners were constantly looking for ways to challenge the children. From Sign Language to Spanish, Science Fairs or performances they were always introducing them to new experiences and promoting their personal development. Not only was the Goddard school academically superior, there was never a time that we were uncomfortable with the onsite team. They spoke to our daughter like a person with feelings; as if what she had to say was the most important thing in the world. This gave her the confidence to know that her ideas matter and that finding new solutions is something she is very capable of. As parents, if there was ever a concern about our daughter’s experience it was addressed immediately and we were never treated as a burden. The school was always clean, picked up and thematically decorated. A friendly welcome was always given when we arrived to drop off or pick up our daughter and even now that we are gone, it is wonderful to go back and visit with the amazing team there. All of these exciting and challenging experiences helped prepare our daughter for entry into the first grade a year ahead of schedule. I cannot say enough wonderful things about the amazing people we met, the experiences our daughter and family had and the readiness of the graduating children to take the next step in their academic career.

I toured several preschools before looking at the Goddard School in Naperville and found most of them to be disappointing. This location is bright and clean, and the teachers are all very friendly and attentive. My daughter’s teachers, Miss Emily and Miss Brittany, are both especially wonderful. I can tell they really care about all of the children and they do a great job of making school fun. Often when I come to pick up my daughter, she does not want to leave! The emailed report at the end of each day is a great way to get a recap of what she ate and activities she participated in (and usually includes some fun pictures or videos). The director, Laura, has always been very responsive to any questions/concerns, as well as accommodating to any schedule changes I have requested. Overall, my daughter loves this school, and I know she is in good hands when I drop her off for the day.

The teachers were excellent role models and it was more than obvious how much all of them - Mr. Jake, Ms. Adrienne, Ms. Claire, Ms. Stephanie, Ms. Kimberly and many others - cared for the kids and worked so hard to make learning fun while also helping them learn how to be kind and respectful. There was always a fun craft or project going on that incorporated various aspects learning, and she was more than adequately prepared to enter kindergarten this year. In fact, our biggest struggle with the transition to kindergarten has been how much she misses the teachers. Choosing this school was one of the best decisions we made 3 years ago!

Today is my daughter's last day at Salmon Creek Goddard School. Not because we want her to leave, but simply because we are moving. I only wish I could pick up the school and the staff and bring them along with us. For two years my daughter has been attending the Goddard School, and for two years I have been so happy to know that I never have to worry about my daughter during the day. She has made great friends, and met wonderful teachers who have given her the opportunities to create, learn, explore and grow as herself, at her own pace and in ways that she finds "super fun". I would highly recommend this school to anyone who is looking for a place for their children - you won't regret it. Some perks about the school: - Secure, parents are let through a locked door either from the office staff or with their own personal code/fingerprint scanner. - Clean! They take great care of their facilities and it shows. - Great staff - I have never had a negative interaction with any staff member - Happy children! You can walk past each classroom and see happy, healthy children playing. - Outside time - They have 2 areas with play equipment, depending on the age of your child, as well as a field area for the kids to play with scooters, balls, and hula hoops. - Encouraging potty training - honestly, I'd give this school props because I think the majority of my daughter's potty training was done here. It really helps to have friends going through the same routines as her to help her understand why we use the potty. - Communication - Michelle is great at returning any emails sent her way, and the school is on top of things when it comes to communicating events, illnesses that may occur, and any other types of info needed. A+ on this. - Schedules - they offer both full day and half days, and are very accommodating when schedules need to be changed. As a student, my days would change every couple of months, and it was never an issue to go from half days to full days and switch days that she attended. I could go on for much longer, easily. Best experience I could have asked for.

There is extensive hands on learning between staff and children. The teacher to student ratio is low, so that each student gets individual attention. The daily updates and pictures make us as parents feel confident and comfortable with our children's care. Owner responsiveness and involvement with the children is more than can be expected. Our family have, and will continue to, recommend the Goddard school at Newtown to anyone in need of childcare.

Our boys went to The Learning Tree for 2 years and the we switched over to Goddard. I thought that The Learning Tree was a pretty good school UNTIL our experience at Goddard. I am so glad that we made this switch. The very low turnover of teachers is most important to the children and it speaks volumes of how the organization is operated and how their employees are treated. Our boys love this school!!

They are so caring when it comes to the overall child! My son loves getting to see and experience new things and without Goddard that wouldn't be possible. Magic shows are one of his personal favorites! He also tells me all about the garden and fire drills. Which might seem mundane but it means they are trained for emergencies and my son gets to see how vegetables are made. He learns how to interact with his peers through positive reinforcement! He always has something to tell me on our way home and when I drop him off to go to work. I have peace of mind that he is not just safe but enjoying himself and learning to love learning! The teachers are always there to talk to me about issues that arise and offer a supportive circle to help raise my child!.

The Goddard School Fall Festival was an exceptional event. With a neutral theme no child was left behind in the fun department. There wasn't a dull moment from start to finish. With guest appearances from Elsa, the Minions and night train ride my little one was just left speechless. Well planned and organized. Goddard staff you did it again. Such a lovely evening for the entire family. Thank you Goddard!!!

My Son has got a great education there and he likes the other students. he only attends 2 days per week and there is a great structure for the students. Upper management has been great and friendly. they always do their best to make sure each parent has been informed of the exciting activities and upcoming events. Super big hugs and love goes out to Heidi and Ms Mary Claire in Giraffes for the love they offered my son the first year and a half he attended a structured school. He has come so far Thank you all at the Goddard School.

After an exhaustive search for a daycare/day school for my child, I chose the Goddard School. They provide a warm, welcoming environment for the children and curriculum that opens a child's depth of knowledge and natural curiosity towards learning through hands on experiences. The teachers, director, and owners have always made us feel like family and provided open lines of communication to ensure a teacher-parent-student partnership. I love it when my child comes home and "teaches" me some of the things he has learned throughout the week.

We've been part of the Goddard family for close to 7 years and it has been a great experience. Nancy and Ken have been the perfect owners. The staff is amazing and both my kids have enjoyed each day at school. They look forward to going to the Goddard school every morning and come home with amazing stories and experiences each night. Like with any other daycare, the staff changes periodically but Nancy makes sure she replaces each staff member with someone better if not at par with the person leaving. The Goddard School has laid the foundation for a bright future for both my kids. This is our last year at the Goddard and if I had to do it all over again, I would definitely go with this school.

I was hesitant to take my twin girls to this school after reading the previous review. However ,upon moving to Georgia five months ago aftet extensive research we decided on Goddard of Snellville. My girls are three and I have been very impressed and de stressed about them during the day while attending Goddard in Snellville. We have a 13 year old also and have experienced the horrid occurrences at preschools .Therefore ,I am very particular when choosing care for our girls. Thus far we have had a very good experience academically , physically and socially . The entire staff is nice and open to communication.

My daughter attended the Goddard School from about 15 weeks old until she was over 5 years old. We were so pleased with the owner (Tina) and all of the teaching staff. She recently started kindergarten and we just had fall conferences with her teacher. Her early assessments of reading and math were well above average range and the teach even commented that m daughter plus the other two children in her class (that also attended Goddard School) were all well-prepared and very advanced in their early math skills which she attributes to the good work of the Goddard teachers!

I have nothing but great things to say about the Goddard School of Cornelius. Being a teacher myself, I appreciate what Goddard does to instill the sense of "school" for our daughters rather than providing "daycare" services. The curriculum challenges them and allows them to explore their individual strengths and talents. I enjoy reading their detailed daily report and asking them about their school day. The facilities are kept clean and updated, and the "homey" feel throughout the school is comforting. The entire staff at Cornelius is kind, friendly and caring. The most important aspect to us is to know that our girls are loved. That is more than evident in the kindness their teachers show, the friendly smiles and greetings from the owner and director, and talks daily with their teachers. Thank you for taking such great care of our girls and helping them learn, grow, and laugh!

My wife and I have a high energy son. We switched him to the Goodard school halfway through the pre-k year. He was acting out at his previous school. The change was amazing. My sons attuitude changed from a shamful one to a proud and happy one! So, you can imagine how us parents felt! Thank you all at Goodard in Rock Hill.

We have been with Goddard School since my son was 9 months old. The management team is friendly and is excellent with communication. The teaching staff is amazing and we have loved all of the teachers my son has had. The environment is clean, the building is set far back in a quiet part of Rockside road, which makes pick up and drop off convenient from my husband and I. We constantly receive pictures and video directly to our email, which makes us feel less disconnected from him during the day. When you want the best care for your child, Goddard should be your first choice.

Highly recommend Goddard School in Castle Rock. My two children have been attending for two years, and my favorite part about the school are the teachers. I love that I can trust the faculty and staff to take wonderful care of my kiddos in a clean, safe environment. I actually live in Denver, but work in Castle Rock, and have enjoyed having the kids close to my work and the flexibility Goddard offers.

his has been an amazing educational experience for our entire family. The teachers at this school are simply amazing. They and the management staff have helped our family with behavior problems at home. The communication between teacher, managers and parents is amazing. They incorporate learning and fun and my children now love school. It is a wonderful stepping stone into the public school system. The Goddard school is the best of the best and I am confident that my children couldn't be in a better school. The entire staff is so caring and compassionate and it shows in the classroom. Anytime a question or concern comes up they are quick to respond with integrity. We love the Goddard school!

This school is fantastic! Excellent preschool academics, super friendly, very accommodating to diverse individual needs. Our little guy was having trouble adjusting to being in school and the whole staff, including the owner/operator Mandy worked, over a period of several months, to help him. They were very flexible in trying out various strategies, all with the goal of giving him a great school experience.

All three of my children have attended Goddard and loved it! Before we found Goddard our daughter had been to 3 different schools and the experiences were not good. We feel extremely blessed that a friend recommended Goddard. All the kids have loved their teachers and management has always been receptive and made themselves available for us. The atmosphere creates a great learning experience for the kids, which was very important for my wife and I. We are very thankful to have a loving place help us educate our children.

Our daughter has been in daycare since she was 6 weeks old, and she has switched daycares several times as we have hopped around the country. Goddard School in Hudson is run by a very kind couple. The atmosphere is bright, clean and caring. Our daughter is really attached to the friends she has made. I like the attempt of the school to provide a routine in each day.. The daily reports and midday updates are great to see on my phone throughout the day. They include photos of my daughter so I can gauge her mood each day. She comes home content and tired! I think they paint with various objects as their primary artistic activity each day....it would be nice to see more diversity in daily activities, but then again, perhaps the age range only allows for so much deviation from the norm, and don't get me wrong, they do mix it up with playdough, music, occasional outside visitors, etc.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about this school! Our family LOVES it here. Both our daughters attend Goddard. They started in June 2015 for the summer. They had such a blast playing and learning every day. They do so much with these kids on a daily basis. Within 1 month our youngest (2 1/2) was singing songs and learning the alphabet. Our oldest is now back in her regular school full time for the school year but she gets picked up from Goddard each afternoon from school and attends Goddard's after school program. I work downtown Chicago and traffic gets me home in the late afternoon and I'm so grateful to have a place for my oldest to go after school. I love that they pick her up daily and they help her with all of her homework!! What a blessing and time saver that is. For a working mom, your evenings are very tight and busy and any help you can get is so wonderful. My favorite part about the Goddard school is the pictures and daily emails. Each day, throughout the day, I get random photos of my kids interacting, playing, coloring and having fun. This is the highlight of my day when I get my emails and see my kiddos having a great time. It makes me smile every single time. Also, at the end of the day after I sign them out I get an email laying out there entire day which includes, what they ate, what times they changed there diapers, how long they napped, what activities they did that day. Its amazing!! The best part about this particular Goddard school is how wonderful and involved the owners are. Karen and Rundy really care for all the children and they are always there at the school! The teachers and staff that they hire are all wonderful people. They really make sure they hire the best for our children. The place is super clean and super secure. I feel safe every day leaving them there. I feel like I'm leaving them with family. I don't write reviews often but when I do, I mean every single word.

Goddard exemplifies top-notch quality child care. The level of care at Goddard has exceeded all of my expectations in every category. My two sons love all of their teachers, most of which have tenures far exceeding the industry average which is a testament to the quality of care Goddard provides not only to its students but its teachers as well. Those happy teachers create wonderful bonds with both the parents and the children. Furthermore, transitions between rooms are carefully planned and executed so as to be as seamless as possible for the children. The activities are unparalleled – they have an indoor gym where the children get to participate in activities like gymnastics and yoga!! My oldest son is learning his Kindergarten readiness skills with amazing success. People constantly tell me about his amazing vocabulary and thoughtful comments. Management knows every parent and child and make themselves available to assist whenever help is needed. My two sons have been at Goddard for over a year and we look forward to many more years to come.

As a first time mom I was very apprehensive about leaving my daughter with anyone especially a school or daycare. I finally caved in when she was 23 months and was frustrated with babysitters. I checked out 2 facilities. The Goddard School in West Goshen was the second and the owner Jennifer was very welcoming. She allowed our daughter to spend time in the classroom she would potentially be attending while we spoke in the office. My daughter loved her visit and we quickly realized how wonderful this school was. They maintain high standards with their Keystone 4 star rating and NAEYC accreditation. The staff is friendly, the directors on top of matters, and the owner always available when there is an urgent matter. We were always greeted in the mornings and at pick up by staff at the front door. Daily communications are reported using a fantastic program called tadpoles, and they even send you pictures of your kids throughout the day. The first week my daughter attended she was a bit apprehensive at nap times and the director personally held my daughter until she fell asleep and called us each day to reassure us that she was fine. The personal touches made me feel so much better about leaving her there all day. When our second daughter was born we enrolled her as well. Our girls flourished at this school, for three years. My husband and I are extremely impressed with the commitment to excellence at this school. It's not just a daycare, it really is a school because they teach the kids all kinds of skills like sign language and Spanish to name a few. Sadly, we finally had to take our girls out once the eldest reached kindergarten, and because of transportation it was no longer practical to keep them here. We checked out a bunch of different alternatives, and it's really hard to find one that even comes close. _______

This school is AWESOME! I want to clarify that it is a school, this is not a daycare that is warehousing your child, so your child is going to be engaged – but it is centered around learning is fun. Our daughter has learn so much since joining Goddard, and looks forward to her visits. The building is beautiful and well laid out with individual classrooms, easy access, great security and outdoor safe play area for the kids. The staff are so warm and caring from the owner Mark, the director Dawn to her teachers Lauren and Erin– they show it every day how much they care for these kids – and I don’t want to leave out the other teachers who assist and greet you every time you enter the building, even if they are not your child’s teacher. As parents, one of our favorite things is to receive the daily electronic activity report of everything they did during the day as well as pictures – which we can download and keep. We are so happy that we made the choice to enroll her in this school, they have exceeded our expectations.

She has taught me so much and im so thankful

The quality of the programs at The Goddard School is beyond what I have seen with its competitors. My children are well-educated, but they are also well-loved. The teaching staff is knowledgeable and the front office staff is eager to help.

The teachers and staff at Goddard have a lot of childhood development experience and are great with working with kids. The junior kindergarten program is fun and challenging and a great prep for children about to be in school. The preschool, toddler, and infant rooms are well organized and each day is preplanned with new fun and exciting activities. My children all love attending Goddard and have smiling faces when I come to pick them up at the end of the day. When you have to leave your kids, it is comforting knowing they are enjoying where they are and are well taken care of!

For the last six years, we have enrolled our children in the Goddard School - Avon. Over the years, we have watched our children grow and flourish under Goddard's daily care. With our first child, we had no idea how to begin potty training. The staff at Goddard walked us through the process and helped us every step of the way, even giving us "homework" to do on the weekends. And it worked wonderfully! When our son began kindergarten, we were nervous about the transition because he was the youngest in his class. We were worried he would not be prepared for the work. But the teachers at Goddard prepared him so well that he actually moved into the most advanced reading and math groups shortly after starting kindergarten. He is now in second grade and continues to be one of the best students in his class. Our second child had a food allergy that developed later in his second year. The Goddard staff worked with us to address the allergy and take precautions to make sure that our son was accommodated during meal and snack times. Just as with our first son, we can already see so much progress with our second son's learning. The curriculum at Goddard is second to none. We now are moving away and have struggled to find a daycare center that has made us feel as secure and our children as cared for as Robert and his staff have at Goddard. If you are looking for a childcare facility near Avon, I cannot recommend the Goddard School enough! Robert and his staff have made us feel at home there, and we will miss them dearly when we go!

Our son Luke attended the Goddard School in Allen for their pre Kindergarten program. We have been absolutely amazed at his transition into kindergarten this year. He was completely prepared and shows confidence in the classroom. His teacher even mentioned how she loves to teach "Goddard kids." We will forever be thankful for our time spent at Goddard and the dedication of their amazing staff.

My son has gone here since he was 2 years old and the development that has happened since is incredible. Goddard School has great teachers who seem to genuinely be interested in how your child is progressing. Every day we get a detailed report of what our child did in school that day as well as photos and any notes that are pertinent. They work with you through potty training and the socialization our son is getting will no doubt prepare him for school.

Our daughter has been going to Goddard since she was 18 months old and is now almost 4.5 years old. She has thrived in all areas. I attribute that to the wonderful teachers she has had over the years and the nurturing environment that is created. We've been very lucky to have amazing staff in each of her classrooms. Our son will be attending Goddard as well next year and we're excited to see his progression through the years too. The current management team of Erin, Crystal, and Laura are exceptional to work with; They treat our family like "family!" I encourage any of you to check out Goddard. I think you'll be impressed with Erin, her team and the great team of teachers.

My daughter attended Goddard School on Emerson for 2 years. She thrived in the Pre-K classroom and always enjoyed going to school. Her teachers were excellent and I was impressed with the relatively low staff turn-over and what seemed like satisfied teacher staff. The administration always recognized me, even though I rarely did the drop-offs and pick-ups. Everyone at the school really cared about my daughter and our family, and we were very happy with our experience. The teachers made learning fun while providing a nurturing environment for my daughter to grow. I also loved that I could drop by anytime to visit, offer to do a presentation in the classroom, and bring treats for birthdays. Everything was very transparent and open.

You know you picked the right day car/preschool provider when you go to pick your kids up at the end of the day and they don't want to leave because they are having so much fun. Our three year old and five year have had the best experiences at the Moon Township Goddard School and that is because owner Carol, administrators Angela and Amy and all of the teachers (too many to list) have made it such a great place for our kids to learn and grow. Our kids rush to give them all hugs in the morning at drop off and and at pick up in the afternoon. This Goddard School really is doing it right.

My wife and I had to make the tough decision of finding a daycare and school for our son when he was about 10 months old. We went to many daycare centers in the area and they were just that, daycare. Some advertised themselves as schools, but didn't provide a curriculum and their plans to teach our son. But that all changed when we went to The Goddard School-Lake Orion. We knew from our first visit that this was the best place for our son. Even in the first classroom where the kids are as young as 6 weeks there is a curriculum and a push for education. This has continued in every class my son has moved into as he gets older. I'm very happy with the education and care Goddard provides and their teachers and staff are amazing. The facility is great and they go above and beyond to ensure there is a long list of activities for the kids to be able to participate in and learn from. For any parents in the area looking for a great place for their children, then look no further than Goddard.

The teachers and staff at Goddard Lake Orion are fabulous with the children. My daughter attended the school for 2.5 years before kindergarten. She was reading before she even started kindergarten! She has only good memories of her time there. My son loves going to Goddard and is always excited to see his teachers and friends. He never leaves without hugging his teachers goodbye, especially Miss Ashley. Seeing the teary eyed teachers at graduation made me feel good as a parent. There is no doubt that they love the children. So glad we have another year left!

Our kids loved their time at the Goddard School! They had a lot of fun but equally learnt a lot too. We found the school to have excellent communication with parents. The teachers were very friendly and approachable and we were very pleased with the security measures to keep our children safe. There was a good variety of activities in the week and it was fun receiving emails with pictures of what the kids were up to during the day (tadpoles app) - this was also reassuring for me as my son had separation anxiety issues at drop-offs so it was good to see him enjoying himself! Overall a great experience and a very high standard. We have now moved back to the UK after an 18 month stay in the US and are missing you all at the Goddard School - thank you for all you did for our kids!!

Goddard is an amazing school that has a wonderful program for the kids. The teachers are very vested in the kids and make the parents feel very welcome. What Sorelle learned is incredible, she always told us about her day and all that they did as well as what she learned and made at preschool. I would recommend Goddard to any and everyone and in fact I have on many occasions. The Parents Night Out they offer is a great perk as well, it is so nice to get a guaranteed date night each month! Thanks for taking such good care of her, teaching her so much and making her feel loved and special every day!

The Goddard School has been an amazing environment for my 3.5 year old son. We started him at the school right before his 2nd birthday and he has thrived in the last year and a half. I met Sandra, the Executive Director, at a childcare fair and because of her, was immediately was interested in the school for my son. Sandra is warm, approachable and genuinely interested in my philosophy as a parent. After touring the school, I felt lucky that we secured a spot and have been thrilled with the teachers. They are smart, interactive and caring, and my son quickly became attached to many of them as he progressed through the different rooms (based on age/ability) at the school. We have had several 1:1 meetings with Sandra, Dr. Bill, and other administrators since he started and every time, they have listened to our questions and responded with helpful and insightful answers based on our child's individual needs. It amazes me how well they know my son and his personality, likes and areas for improvement. I greatly value their input on his progression, and they have moved him through the classrooms at the right "speed." We are starting to think about the kindergarten application process and what schools would be a good fit for our son. Sandra holds your hand through the entire process - we recently met with her and she gave us fantastic leads for potential schools. The most impressive part was she listed schools giving the reasons she thought our son would excel there. Again, the teachers and administrators are so in tune with your child's specific qualities and it shows in every interaction. A great perk is the school also holds a "date night" evening for parents a few times each year where you can leave your child at school after hours and they play and have a pizza party. I trust my son with very few people and this makes a great night out for my husband and me as we know he is safe with teachers he loves. I don't believe there is a better "education" for pre-schoolers than the Goddard School.

After trying several other daycares in the area and being extremely unhappy with the results, we sent our daughter to Goddard and never regretted the decision. The staff is excellent, she never had a teacher who didn't connect with her on a personal level and she always received top-notch personal attention. Her development both interpersonally with her classmates ("friends" in the parlance of Goddard) and her readiness for kindergarten was amazing. She was so well prepared that during her placement test for the public school kindergarten she currently attends the teacher giving the test came back after a few minutes and said: "Well that was the quickest test ever. Your daughter already knows everything she needs for Kindergarten." And it is not just the staff. Goddard attracts great kids and does a great job of teaching them. Every day when I dropped off and picked up my daughter I was surrounded by "friends" who would be just as excited to see me as they were my little one. It really is a great community of learners who are nurtured to do their best. I would completely recommend it as the finest daycare (honestly it is more a school than a daycare) in Rock Hill that I have run across and anyone who wants their child to have a successful start in life should seriously consider sending their child there.

My daughter recently started her 3rd year at The Goddard School in Franklin, and we absolutely LOVE it! It's been such a great experience for my daughter and for me as the parent of a Goddard student. The owner, office staff and teachers are all top-notch, friendly and professional. I feel fortunate that we found Goddard two years ago and were able to provide my daughter the opportunity to attend preschool here. I believe my daughter's experience at Goddard will have her well-prepared for kindergarten, and I would recommend this school to any parent looking for a safe and reliable preschool for their infant or toddler.

Our daughter attended Goddard school on Emerson from the age of 3 until she started Kindergarten. She had a great experience and really thrived. The teachers and staff were wonderful and supportive and I would recommend this school highly to other parents.

We like to express our gratitude to all of the people at this Goddard School @ Sienna because my daughter just finished their Summer School Camp with Goddard's. We were and we are EXTREMELY happy, we had such a great service from Mr Judhir the owner, Destiny the manager, we love Mrs Juanita her teacher, excellent teacher .. You could tell our daughter coming to our house very happy everyday. My wife and I value her education and we found that Goddard's had a great balance, from academics, our daughter was learning and was challenged with full day activities. They had one field day a week. They had a splash day once a week. The food was great. We had a full daily report sent by email we could see all of activities daily. The building was very clean. We are soo happy and we are soo blessed our Father God and Mother God found this school for us, and our Daughter had such a happy time there... Thank you to all.. Highly recommend them.

My son came home happy from school. He wakes up saturday morning and says "Mamma, I want to go to school. I want to play with my friends and Ms. Sabrina". Learning with fun and play made this school a better place for my son. Daily sanitary habits, social etiquette, art, music, dance everything made my son happy and I couldn't have asked for more. The school has a great staff and it took any complaints we had seriously is what we liked about this school as well. The teachers care for their kids and that is really important for a parent. My son misses his old buddies and teachers!

I would recommend The Goddard School to anyone and everyone raising their kids in the city! My son attended The Goddard School from the time he was 6 months old to 4.5 years old starting in August of 2011 & it has been the most incredible experience! Everyone from the owner to the directors to all of the teachers along the way have been like family. They have been encouraging and excited about every milestone that he reached from crawling to walking to talking to being potty trained to reading & writing. My son has loved going to school there, speaks of his teachers fondly and loves his friends. It is extremely important to find a school that has the right balance of structure and play that lets our children flourish and have a positive educational experience. The play-based curriculum was crucial to Matthew's learning and also helped develop social and emotional learning skills. The teachers are the BEST! They are caring, passionate & incredibly creative and have always encouraged parent involvement. The facility is excellent as well & it is amazing that they don't ever need to leave the grounds to play. I never worried about anything while he was at school - I knew that he was always well taken care of. And the best part is that you get an email report each day about what they did with fun pictures and videos of the special moments that the teachers captured to share. It makes you feel like you were at school with them during the day and opens up a conversation for them to share details about their day. We looked at a lot of options before choosing Goddard and the moment we went on the tour, we knew it was the right place. It is far above the rest of the options in the city! It truly prepares your child for kindergarten making them more academically advanced than the rest of the kids in their class. Thank you to Jason, Gina & Lauren for always being available and taking such good care of our family. And a special thanks to the many teachers who have supported my son's learning along the way (Cara, Shenise, Melissa, Rosie, Hannah, Jen, Katie, Emily, Kirstin, Charlotte, Sarah, Kay, Kathy, Julie and the countless resource teachers who supported them)! We will miss you all! As we embark on the next part of our journey at The Latin School, I can only hope the rest of his educational experience will be this amazing!

There isn't enough I can say to to express how much we love the Goddard School. When our son was 2 months old we started looking for child care. We looked at four different places and after touring the Goddard School we knew this was the place for us. Our son started when he was three months old and still attends today - he is six. We loved how each child was transitioned into the next class room - they start visiting the class so they have a chance to become familiar with it before they are there all day. This made it not only easy for us but for our child to get used to the new setting and the new staff in each room. The staff at Goddard is simply amazing! My son loves going there and has to make his rounds to say hello to everyone. They are all are so caring and very good with the kids. Not only do they take care of them, they have lesson plans to ensure the children are learning as well. My son was and still is so excited to share with us what he learned each day. If you are looking for a place for your child to learn and grow and be taken care of by a well trained staff, then The Goddard School is definitely the right place for you and your family.

I can not say enough how amazing my experience with The Goddard School in Noblesville has been. My daughter is three and she has had some trouble transitioning in the past. I was concerned that a change in schools would be hard for her but with the support of her loving teachers, she has had no trouble settling right in. The facility is warm and inviting upon entry. It is very apparent that the school is well taken care of and CLEAN! My child comes home every day with something nee to tell me and I can see her growing academically right before my eyes. The staff is always positive and helpful whenever I have questions. I would highly recommend The Goddard School in Noblesville to any parent who is searching for high quality child care at a reasonable price!

We love this school because they love our kids! I admit I was a little hesitant at first because all of the "day schools" anymore can seem like little military academies where they stress structure and education, but forget these are kids who need to play and explore. Goddard is indeed structured and has a top notch curriculum, but they allow the kids to play, explore and grow in a way that feels natural, not forced. It's always hard to leave your infant in anyone's care, but Mrs. Jo and Mrs. Tricia are amazing and my infant is amazing happy and well cared for. The price tag is not cheap, but would you really want discount childcare? You get what you pay for, and Goddard School has been worth every penny.

Our Daughter went to Goddard for Pre-K. We were very nervous at the beginning but the thorough tour by Michael (owner) bestowed a sense of relief - secure access to property/student to child ratio/cleanliness/structure/organized Ms. Audrey and Ms. Melissa were outstanding! They understood our concerns for the first week and made sure they sent photos and videos during the day. The summary report for the day with photos are very thoughtful and a constant reminder of the value a parent receives when enrolled at Goddard.

What a wonderful school! Our daughter spent the summer here while we were building a home elsewhere in Denver. The owners are amazing and know all the children by name. The classroom curriculum was great. Our daughter really blossomed while here. If we stayed in the neighborhood we would definitely continue here. Highly recommended.

We are thankful to have found the Goddard in Marriottsville specifically (and feel lucky to have secured spots for our 2 daughters as this is a very popular option in our area!). My 4 year old has attended the school for several years and we could not be more pleased with the growth she has experienced. My husband and I come from education / teaching backgrounds and are truly impressed with the level of planning and engagement in each classroom. She has been exposed to several opportunities including sports, arts, working with an interactive whiteboard, cooking, etc. The owner, Ms. Sheeba, truly knows and appreciates each child and family and has gone above and beyond several times for us. I go to work each day knowing my children are safe, cared for, and growing by leaps and bounds. In addition, teachers that do not have my daughter in their classroom know her name and greet her with genuine enthusiasm. We are so thankful for how much "minds on" time there is and the ways in which she has grown socially and emotionally. Thank you Goddard, Marriottsville!

I absolutely love this Goddard school. I had a bad experience with my first day care and really shopped around before coming to the Goddard in Brick. I felt so at ease the second I walked through the door. Cheryl is an amazing director. You are up to date at all times with what is going on with your child. They do the cutest monthly parties within the school as well. The teachers are amazing with the children and keep you up to date with all social and emotional growth as well as smarts! No other school compares.

Our son attended the Goddard School on Broadway for 3 years and, at least in part due to the education he received at Goddard, got into a very good K-8 program (he also did very nicely on the G & T exam). The teachers he has had over the past year have been excellent and have worked with him on confidence, fine tuning graphomotor skills, focus, and becoming more out-going. The education/outplacement director, Ms. Lugo, was extremely helpful and always friendly/supportive during the difficult K-8 application process. The facilities/activities are quite good and very clean- most of the classrooms have large windows overlooking the street.and there is a nice variety of activities. Schedules can be flexible in terms of days of the week and students enroll by the month. Overall our son had a very good experience and learned and developed greatly.

Above and Beyond! My son was at a Goddard School at a different location from 1 year old until he was almost 4. I thought I had him in the best of the best! Then I moved and found The Goddard School, Marriottsville. This school exceeded everything I thought my son could receive from a caring, supportive, and educational program! The atmosphere, employees, and resources this Goddard School provides is top of its game! I thought I was happy with the previous school, but the difference is so great that I wish I could turn back time and have my son at the Marriottsville Goddard School from the very start! I am ecstatic that I get to drop my son off here every day!

My daughter has only been at Goddard for a month but comparing to her previous daycare center, the positives at Goddard are the following: Cleaner, more calm environment, variety in daily activities, more learning less babysitting, friendly staff, photos emailed to me throughout the day (love this!), and overall sense of pride from management of center. I would highly recommend Goddard for any parent looking for the best center in the area!

We loved going here! We live in Fort Mill and only the daily 30 min each way drive made us change schools. The staff were all great and you could see the real affection they had for our son and all the kids there. Our son was always coming home with arts and crafts as well as new songs. His language and social skills have developed dramatically over his time there. They're also outside for a good while during the day which is really great. The building is nice and clean but homey feeling and their outdoor play spaces at great with the nature trail and raised beds for the kids to learn about how things grow. Overall we really loved it here and we're sad to go.

i have two kids at Goddard School, one for regular period and older one for after school since 14 months ago. i dont have complains, the staff is wonderfull from the owner to the teachers including the front office, if you have a need they try to solve it. they add regularly to the classes new games, puzzles, toys, new materials and a lot of imagination to create apropriate and adequate small or big handcraft to your childrens age. almost everyday you see something different, on the floor, on the wall, on the window, including pictures of your kids having different activities and getting multiple abilities. Is amazing how they share fellings and hope to who needs and is not only on thanksgiving period. i do highly recommend Goddard School.

Ms. Kelly the owner and operator of Goddard Fairfield has created a one in a million daycare. The teachers and staff make you feel like a part of their family.

The activities are well planned and always fun for the kids. I would recommend this location to anyone.

Be careful when they tell you they'll have full time care soon. When my babysitter was leaving, we put our then 2-year old daughter part time with promise that the 5 days/week spot would soon open up (a month or two), the purpose was to slowly phase my daughter in. We ended up paying yearly registration of $250 plus 1 month tuition for 2 days/week ($750) only to find out that there were no opening anytime soon. We ended up pulling my daughter out and wasting the $250 registration fee. I think they do it on purpose: they make more money by having kids part time. On the plus side, her teachers were nice and attentive.

My Daughter Khloe has been attending the Goddard school for almost two years and I couldn't be happier with the staff as well as her progress. My daughter knows about 5-6 different signs in ASL. My daughter is learning Spanish everyday among many other things. I can tell the activities reflected on her daily report are actually being taught. I also receive a picture of my child completing these activities so I always feel like I am right there with her. I receive so many pictures a day of my daughter it makes being away from her easier. Any special requests I've had they have always made sure to fulfill. I can tell my daughter is happy here and I chose the right preschool because drop off is always easy and at the end of the night she doesn't want to leave.

I have loved our experience at the Goddard School. My child has learned so much in the year she has been here. Her teachers Bonnie and Katherine did an amazing job getting her ready for kindergarten this fall. She can write all her letters and has even started writing words with help with spelling. She has learned basic adding skills. I feel like she has been set up for success in her future school years. I would recommend this school to every parent.

She has great number recognition and she has started basic adding skills! Her teachers in the pre-school I classroom are fantastic and devote the entire school day to some type of fun educational experience. I am looking forward to my little girl moving to the next classroom and continuing growing and learning in the Goddard Family!

We have been thrilled with our experience at Goddard. Right from the start, we noticed differences. When you walk down the hall and look into the classrooms, you will notice the teachers at the children's level engaged with them. On the floor, at the table, etc. They are focused on the children. Our daughter LOVES going to school, she loves her teachers, and is always excited to go back. The facility is beautiful and engaging for children. The snacks and meals are healthy and wholesome. They have an app that gives you daily photos and reports from the classroom. We really couldn't be more excited to have this school for our daughter.

Kudos to Michael, Lu-Ann and the entire staff at Goddard for fostering a stimulating learning environment for preschool children! Our son was well-prepared for full-day kindergarten and beyond thanks to his wonderful experiences at Goddard. We loved that Goddard's emphasis is on well-rounded, happy students, including daily doses of creative art, language arts, motor skills, music/movement/yoga, science/nature studies, social science, computer lab and cognitive development. And the Goddard staff truly cares about each and every child and works hard to include the parents and family members in a very warm, welcoming way.

When I walked into the Goddard School I knew almost immediately it was where my son was supposed to be. As a first time mom, dropping off your 12 week old baby seems impossible, but the teachers at the Goddard School eliminated any apprehension I had. We are greeted every morning with smiles, and I know he is going to be well taken care of. One of my favorite things they do that sets them apart from other schools is their use of the Tadpoles app. I am sent pictures throughout the day of my little one laughing, napping, and playing with his friends. It makes the work day go faster seeing his smiling face! Then at the end of the day they send me a report that includes the time of every diaper change, nap, and feeding. I could not be happier with our experience so far. I can't wait to continue to watch him grow and learn at the Goddard School!

I can't say enough great things about The Goddard School in Morgantown. My daughter has been apart of the Goddard Family since she was 3 months old and now she is a very bright, caring, outgoing 4 year old. I truly believe Goddard's preschool foundation is the best in the area with dedicated teachers who inspire your child's learning and growth - intellectually, socially and creatively. My daughter has made beautiful friendships and our family has felt a part of the community since we walked through the doors. Thank you for all your support and flexibility throughout the years. I know our daughter will succeed in life due to her incredible foundation she received from this school. I would highly recommend this program and school to anyone.

This Goddard school is particularly great! We looked at several different schools, including another Goddard school which was actually closer to us, but really felt we connected best with Michelle and her staff here at the Lake in the Hills school. We drive an extra 10 minutes to have our kids attend. My son entered their Pre-K/K program when we moved here and it was clear after a few months that their phonics program was working well with our son. He loves to read now (before he goes to Kindergarten this fall) and comes home telling us all the activities he is doing. He learned, through a kid friendly program, how to play chess and now plays it regularly with my dad. The have a smart board in class where the lessons are interactive and hold the kids interest, I doubt most other programs have that. He does yoga, learns about artists and their styles (he came home talking about pointillism and impressionism) has outings such as martial arts lessons, has gone to eat lunch with the local policemen, and regular visitors come to the class from the library, nature center and a host of other professionals who open their eyes to the different things on our community. My younger son, who is now 3, also engages in fun and regular educational programs on a daily basis. They send pictures (with your permission) of your kids to you throughout the day so you can see what they are doing and the fun they are having. I can come home from work and immediately connect with what they have done that day as I have been looking at the pictures of their activities throughout the day. I am actually a bit sad that my oldest is headed off to public Kindergarten next year as I don't think he will be in as enriched environment as he is now, but I know he will be extremely prepared as he moves on next year. This is a fantastic school, the staff is wonderful, and they do a wonderful job making learning fun and interactive for kids!

Goddard truly is an amazing place for kids. We started taking my daughter there a few months ago. She is now 9 months old and still in the infant room. They are amazing. The owner Cathi is an incredible woman. Any concerns or problems you have she fixes right away. The main lady in the infant room, Star, is awesome too. She is so sweet and I know when shes in there that my baby will be loved. They call you if anything goes wrong. They are on point with feeding and diaper changes and naps. I truly love this school and so does my daughter. she is always excited when she sees Star and the other kids. I would recommend this school to anyone. Love it!!!!

We have our twins in this school for almost six months now. To us, this school is head and shoulder above the rest (and believe me, we searched far and wide before saying these things) on several areas. Most notables are Value and Curriculum. The tuition is pretty low to compare with other high-end schools in the area. The value is rising more significantly when you factor in all of the free extras such as computer lab, music, pizza lunch, etc. The curriculum is first rate. Our twins learn so much in just six months. Both of them are blooming, always looking forward to go to the school in the mornings and ask often over the weekends when they don't go to school. The staff is very friendly and attentive too. Everybody seems to like us. And we like them all. Mark W.

My husband and I toured this school yesterday. We walked into the lobby seeing a lady (later I learned she was Jungle Jill) showing the students some exotic animals. One was a giant turtle. The other one was a boa constrictor. Then there was colorful bird. And then a falcon.... It was so fun and so educational. After that we had our "official" tour. We were sold at the end of the tour (or should I say right at the beginning of the tour?). We enrolled our daughter on the spot. and felt very good about it. We'll start Monday next week. Bev.

We have been at this school for 11 months and I have zero regrets. I have a huge trust issue with who keeps my daughter but I am 100% confident that she is in great hands. Dropping her off each morning and seeing her run into her class without even looking back at me is reassuring that she loves it too. Being able to provide my own food for my daughter for breakfast and lunch gives me peace of mind that she is eating nutritional foods and the facial recognition software at the front door is an added security measure to provide confidence that my daughter is as safe as possible! Not to mention, the level of intelligence that my child has in comparison to others her age is amazing! They follow a curriculum even for the younger kids! I highly recommend this school!

We have been sending our two sons to Goddard part time since they were each one year old. The staff has always been professional and accommodating of our schedule needs. Our kids love their teachers and are learning so much. The school brings in special activities regularly such as music, yoga, and soccer teachers. Each aged based classroom has been a great fit for our kids - providing appropriate schedule, environment, and curriculum as the children grow. The franchise changed hands in the past year and the new owner brings professionalism to the school. The two directors are friendly, informative, and responsive. We would highly recommend this facility for anyone with kids ranging from birth to kindergarten!

I have my daughter in this exceptional school for almost 4 years now. Of all my time there I am 99% happy. The 1% when I wasn't happy, I let them know and they corrected the issue almost on the spot. I think I have a very good idea about the staff and the operations there after 4 years of seeing up-close everyday. Here are a few observations: 1. The school is run on relationships on top of everything else. People there know me and my daughter as well as any non-blood relative would. 2. I am amazed at the length they are willing to go to make the children safe. My child was bitten by a very sweet but aggressive child in the class. I was very upset. But they were very decisive to stick to their policy of dealing with aggressiveness to protect the rest of the children. I wasn't happy with my child being bitten but was very pleased with how they stuck to their policy. I see another example when a teacher was reprimanded for even raising her voice when talking to a student. 3. They operate on the principle of creating equal environment for all students. All of the extra activities such as computer class are without extra fees. This way it did not create a situation where a child is left behind because his family cannot afford extra fees. Basically, that were the main points. there were countless other smaller examples I can give. What I really like them is they are not afraid to "rock the boat" for a few to keep it safe and pleasant for the 99% of the students and families. Read less

Our son started at Goddard right after he turned 1. We initially were looking at Montessori schools as our daughter had attended one. We are definitely glad we took a look at Goddard as we have been very, very happy with our experience there. Our son has really enjoyed his teachers (Ms Tracy,Ms Allison, Ms Sarah and Ms Sabrina). They have been wonderful in helping him feel right at home, enjoy his time there and effectively communicate with us about his day. The front office staff (Nicolette and Marissa) are very organized and have been great communicating with us and relaying information to teachers if we had to call in about something. Our daughter, just started their Summer Camp program with Mr Tyler and she has been having a great time this summer. The daily reports we get via email are awesome in finding out how they spent their day. It is really helpful so at dinner we can sit down and have a conversation about their day at school. If you are looking for child care, I would highly recommend taking a look at Goddard to see if it is a good fit for your family.

I currently have two kids enrolled at this location and can’t say enough good things about our experience. The staff is amazing!! Brooke and Travis (owners), Shannon (Director) and Christy (Asst. Director) have been great to work with. They are friendly, approachable and it’s easy to see how much they enjoy the kids. As for the teachers, they are top notch and do an outstanding job. Casey, Emma, Erin, Kendall, Jessica, Adal, Catherine and Melissa are just a few of the awesome teachers my kids have had the opportunity to learn from since they started at Goddard. They are accommodating, proactive and really seem excited to be a part of the kids development. My 2 year old loves going to school and is in no hurry to leave. She talks about her teachers at home and it’s been easy to see from the start how much they are learning from the curriculum. My son is only 8 months, but he’s all smiles when I drop him off and pick him up. We also had the unfortunate experience of learning how the teachers and staff respond in a crisis of sorts. My daughter had a febrile seizure at school just after her second birthday. The teachers did everything right and that’s not just my opinion, but the professional opinion of the paramedics and staff at the children’s hospital my daughter was taken to. They started CPR, called 911 and called us right away. One of the added benefits of this location, is it shares a roundabout with the police and fire station, :) so the paramedics were there in under 2 minutes. In addition to taking great care of my daughter, Shannon did a great job when she called me which couldn’t have been a fun call to make. The love and concern from all the teachers and staff were more than we could ask for. I would recommend this location to anyone!

After almost 8 years at the Goddard School in Fanwood between two children, I couldnt be more happy with our experiences at the school. Every teacher we came across was better than the next, each and every year. The Goddard School prepared them for everything that they will encounter at public school, and more. When I returned to work after both of my maternity leaves and had to travel in to NYC for work, I knew that even though it was the hardest decision to make, it was the right one to leave them in the amazing care of the staff at the Goddard School. I highly recommend this school- your child will be in the most trusting, caring and nurturing environment in the area.

We have been at St. Peters Goddard for 3 years now, through 3 classrooms and 3 different lead teachers and everyone and everything has been amazing each step of the way. We feel our daughter gets a superior well rounded education in a safe, fun, clean and caring environment. We even moved 20 minutes farther away but choose to drive past 2 other Goddard schools to keep our daughter at this location. All the Staff and Directors are awesome!

My son has been in the program for a year and we love it! So thrilled to have found a daycare that is clean, fun, engaging, and safe! I feel that all of the teachers we have had so far loved my son. When he had some difficulties transitioning to solids the teachers in the baby room were exceptionally helpful by working with my son. The school sends me a picture of him playing during the middle of the day and I can see how happy he is. The school offers fun activites, like water day during the summer, and I find their curriculum to be well rounded. Before my son could even talk he would light up with a big smile whenever he saw his teachers. That, to me, is priceless! Love goddard!

My son and my daughter both went to Goddard school on kuser rd and I have to say that they have the greatest staff and the best of the best teachers. I had the pleasure of having Ms. Kate as the teacher for both of my children and she is one of the best teachers I have ever come across. I would also like to say that my daughter had ms Christina as the assistant teacher to ms Kate and she was great to very warm and made you feel so comfortable. Thank you so much for everything.

Our experience at the Goddard School has been nothing less than exceptional. We had visited nearby Montessori schools of Southlake and Keller and are so glad we had chosen this one. I am impressed by the degree-certified teachers, the student-teacher ratio, the engaging programs, the safety/sanitation policies, and variety of teaching equipment and structures such as the Prometheus, computer lab and outdoor play areas. What pleases me the most is the genuine care and concern which runs through the entire staff from the directors to the assistant teachers. I can feel more at ease at work knowing I can check on my toddler at any time during the day through a phone call, a Tadpole photo, or an in-person visit. The directors and teachers are also very involved in the development of each child. Before starting the program, we discussed milestones, expectations and farther reaching goals. In addition to a formal progress meeting, the teachers are also open and accessible to giving daily reports and answering questions. Admitting my son into a formal school setting was new for him, but his transition went so smoothly with little to no hiccups because the programs were inviting and adaptive to his comfort level, but at the same time challenging. It is evident that Goddard has had such a positive effect on my son because he comes home everyday excited to show me something new he had learned; his language and speech have made leaps in improvement, and he is becoming so well-mannered. I highly recommend considering this school if you are looking for a center where your child(ren) will be nurtured, encouraged, and cared for.

Our son spent the first two and a half years of his life being cared for by the wonderful teachers at the Cornelius Goddard School until we relocated. The curriculum is outstanding, the teachers are loving and nuturing, and the leaders and owners are wonderful to work with. We could not have asked for a safer place for our son to spend the most precious years of his life. We have and would happily recommend this school to anyone. ~Karen and Jason Smith

Both of our children attended Goddard, our daughter started at age 18 months and our son began at age 10 weeks. While there seems to be a ongoing rotation of teaching staff, each caregiver and teacher has been wonderful with our children. The school itself has worked with my family to make sure all of our childcare needs are met (including supporting my use of breastmilk and cloth diapers for the kids). My daughter has flourished there and has a strong base of knowledge to start preschool.

My twin daughters have been attending The Goddard School for almost 3 years. Everyday they grow their educational foundation to prepare them for Kindergarten! Last night, we attended their Pre-K graduation. What a special, emotional event! Of course the parents were a mess, but it was so heartwarming to see how much our children meant to the teachers and staff! You really do join a family when you join Goddard!

We have had our boys at the Goddard School for 4 years now. I do not have enough words to describe how happy we have been at the Goddard school. The teachers are smart, dedicated, and most importantly, loving. My 8-year-old still gets excited whenever he sees his Pre-K teacher. My younger son has informed me several times that he just does not want to leave to go to kindergarten. Mr. Fred hires good people, runs an amazing program, and feels like part of our family. It will be with tears indeed that I watch my younger son graduate from the Goddard school this week.

My daughter went to Kindergarten at Goddard and had an amazing experience. Ms. Heather is a one of a kind teacher who is passionate about teaching her kids, connecting with them, delivering messages and content that pushes them to learn, get creative and grow. I 100% recommend her to any parent looking at Goddard.

My daughter started going to The Goddard School when she was 12 weeks old. This was the only school that I felt comfortable leaving my daughter. They just seemed so attentive and caring, and they have proven to be that way. She is now almost 3 years old, and we still love it there. They have some excellent teachers there. Two of my favorites are Ms. Jordan and Ms. Melissa. They really do LOVE their children. I also feel that my daughter has developed a lot in regards to academically and socially.

Wonderful school, owners and experience!! Brooke, Travis, Shannon and Christy and all of the teachers we have worked with are so great with our child and family. This school has an open, loving, comfortable environment and we feel good every time we drop off our 4 year old. The curriculum has really prepared our daughter for kindergarten and there are always fun activities. The art gala and the recent graduation ceremony planned by the owners were great, family centric activities. We could not be happier with the Goddard education model but what really makes this place special are the people that work there. Ms. Kathy made the transition for our daughter from home to school a great experience. Our daughter still waves at Ms. Kathy every morning as she goes to her pre k class where Ms Lindsey and Ms Whitney have worked with her on social skills and preparing her for kindergarten. Overall, we recommend this school to anybody looking for a stable, nurturing, comforting, educational, safe and FUN environment!!

I highly recommend the Goddard School in Marriottsville, MD. Sheeba Mathews runs as EXCELLENT early start program. My son went to two other preschools prior to us finding this one and by far this Goddard school is the best!! The very professional, caring, and nurturing staff are absolutely wonderful. My child has really blossomed in his social skills and his excitement about learning new things. If you are looking for an early learning environment that will give your child a solid foundation for elementary school and beyond--this is it!!

I am so very thankful for the experience that I have had from this school! My friend recommended this school to me 3 years ago and am so grateful to her! This school has had the best staff from the front desk ladies to all of my daughter's teachers, my daughter loves to come to this school and is all smiles, when I come to pick her up. They really know how to make someone feel comfortable, weather it's the student OR their families. I am so impressed by this school's creative ways of caring/teaching for my child, she is so well rounded and most credit goes to you. I greatly thank this school's staff from the bottom of my heart. I hope this school never changes anything b/c it is perfect the way it is! For us parents, they clearly take the worry out, by the manner of which they take care of our kids. I highly recommend this school for any parent that is looking for a good nurturing and teaching environment! A big, heartfelt THANK YOU goes out to this school from us! :)

I have been very happy with the Goddard school in Broomfield. My son started when he was 14 weeks old, and has been happily attending every since. I think Goddard has not only helped him get on a schedule and learn great social skills, but has stimulated his mind. He is so happy to go to school each day. The teachers truly care and the admin stuff sets a loving tone.

This is a great school! Our 3 year child has been in this school for a year. Her development has been wonderful. In general, the curriculum is well organized, with variety in learning and frequent extra-curricular events like petting zoo, Home Depot activity etc. The staff is very good as well. 2 thumbs up to this school:)

The team at Goddard is 100% focused on ensuring you, and most importantly, your child's experience is a good one. We feel incredibly lucky to have our child at Goddard; she is happy, well cared for and demonstrates new things she has learned on a daily basis. Thank you Goddard Team!

My little one just graduated from there and it was bittersweet. Although we were happy that she graduated we are going to miss the teachers, staff and students so much. We could not have been happier with the care and education that our child received. From learning new languages, and how to write, to teaching them yoga. The education there is limitless. Our child would blow our minds with the things she would learn. For example she came home one day and explained what molecules were!! I mean, enough said! The teachers are just tremendous and full of love and patience. Ms. Dipti hires the best and brightest because she really cares about running a successful school. You get what you pay for and this place is worth EVERY penny.

This is an excellent school for a child of any age. We were selecting a school for our 3-year old 2 years ago. We went through a lot of child care centers and were stunned how clean and well organized Goddard was. Our daughter spent two very happy years in Goddard and learned so much. Social development and learning through fun activities is exceptional. Not a single complaint, only positive remarks.

As graduation approaches for my daughter, I just want to thank the staff for all the love, caring and attention you have shown over the years that we have been part of the Goddard Family. I am confident that our child is ready for her next school. We found all the different activities you pack into your curriculum to be really great. Thank you.

I am 100% glad I enrolled my son in The Goddard School of Marriottsville. He has been apart of the Goddard Family since infancy. He is now graduating Kindergarten and he has excelled in the 2014-2015 academic year because of all he has learned from the wonderful teachers of the Goddard School. I thank them every chance I get for their continued support and love they give to each and every one of the children. The owner Sheeba, and the directors MaryJane and Pam are very friendly and I definitely recommend The Goddard School of Marriottsville to all parents.

Placing my son at The Goddard School in Marriottsville has been the best decision I've made. Truly a wonderful and loving environment with top notch programs. Their highly qualified teachers go above and beyond to make learning a fun and exciting experience. The Director has made this school the best in the area hands down. Highly recommended!!

I absolutely love the The Goddard School in Darien. My daughter has had a nannie since the age of 3 months. I had to seek childcare outside of the home once she announced her retirement. This school worked with me through the challenging process. Now that my daughter has been attending The Goddard School since October of 2014 we absolutely LOVE it. She is so happy to go to school every day. She is sad when I arrive too early to pick her up. It is a positive learning environment, incorporates fun with learning. The staff takes pride in the education, care and safety of the children. Thanks Goddard Darien!

The Goddard School in Third Lake provides an environment that is miles above the competition in Lake County. We have been part of the school since 2010, and I currently have three children attending Goddard, ranging from the infant room to a recent Kindergarten graduate. The level of care that they receive is unparalleled. The curriculum at each level is comprehensive, advanced, and holistic. They truly treat each child as an individual. The owners are progressive, to the point where they've implemented a new outdoor learning center, which includes nature trails! My children absolutely love school. We receive picture updates throughout the day, as well as a summary email covering in extensive detail the activities and milestones reached that day. The teachers and staff are like an extended family to us. I implicitly trust Goddard Third Lake as a whole and have seen my children make INCREDIBLE strides in their learning and personal development. My son emerged from Kindergarten with a second grade reading level, a limitless knowledge of and love for biology, and advanced math skills. He also has a passion for athletics and chess! He is so well-rounded and respectful, and I owe much of it to Goddard. It's also worth noting that, especially in this day and age, Goddard handles interpersonal skills in an exemplary way. The children are taught that they are ALL friends, and tolerance and kindness are instilled in these kids from day one. My children have rarely had any issues at school, but when the few and far between have occurred, the staff have been transparent, honest, and extremely swift to remedy any situation. I wish I could send my children here forever!

Our daughter is about to join Kindergarten and our son is just beginning at The Goddard School. We are incredibly amazed at the transformation that our daughter went through and how she loves to go to school each day. She adores her teachers who treat her as their own child. The days are full of activities and keep the student engaged. I give credit to the teachers for their handwork and the very friendly administration staff who are always there to help.

Our family had a great experience at The Goddard School. All of the teachers and staff were always very friendly and I could tell they truly cared about the kiddos. They always greeted all of us by name and made us feel welcome. My daughter loved going to school everyday and had an extremely positive experience. She made great friends and learned both academic and social skills. I felt comfortable leaving her at the Goddard because I knew she was in caring hands

What a blessing the Goddard School has been!! After a very bad experience at a daycare in our hometown of Alvin, we knew we could find someplace in which we would feel comfortable leaving our daughter. From the moment I walked in for a tour of the Goddard School, I had a feeling this was where Alyssa needed to be. During the tour, it was evident through the interactions between employees and students, that this was what I wanted for her. She deserved a loving, educational facility where she was loved, and where students and teachers show a mutual respect for one another! Although it was a 20 minute drive out of the way from home and work, I was determined to make this happen for her. There are so many great things I love about Goddard School. First of all, she is greeted at the door with a cheerful “good morning” each day. The teachers really enjoy what they do, and it is obvious! All of the teachers are wonderful, especially Mrs. Ahn and Mrs. Andrea (Alyssa loves and adores both of them). The owners have very high standards, and only hire the best, plus they have very low teacher turnover, which speaks volumes for the facility! Every one of her teachers at Goddard school has taught her the skills she needs in order to be prepared for Kindergarten, while still fostering her unique interests and creativity. The classes are very structured as well, reducing behavior issues. No matter what time of the day I’ve dropped by, the students are always calm and engaged in activities (no crazy, wild kids, like at other day cares). I know my daughter is nurtured and genuinely loved by her teachers and classmates, almost as if they were her family. Goddard School is a cut above the rest. It’s worth every extra mile that I drove and every penny I paid. I only wish I had found them sooner. If she wasn’t going to be in the classroom next door to me next year, I’d keep her in the Goddard School’s Kindergarten class. We will miss this place, and I highly recommend them to anyone I meet.  Thanks for everything you’ve done to ease this momma’s mind.

The Goddard School in Brookfield, WI has been an excellent center for our son. In the several months (5) he has been there, they have brought out his best and make coming to school fun again. This of course wouldn't have been possible without great teachers who are warm and caring, the excellent leadership in place as well as the owners who are on-site every day. The learning environment is positive in nature and incorporates learning into games they play. We now question ourselves as parents why we didn't come here several years ago with our older child when she was younger.

Both my sons attend the Goddard in Waxhaw and they love it. My oldest son is about to graduate from the preschool, and is absolutely devastated that he will have to say goodbye to his teacher Ms. Lisa. He has only been there since February, and he developed an amazing relationship with Ms. Lisa. She has been extremely loving, support, and an amazing teacher to him. We will miss her tremendously after he leaves. My youngest has bonded to his teachers as well. We recently went on vacation and he wasn't at the school for 5 days. He couldn't wait to get back to his teachers and went running in to give hugs. My youngest is 18 months old, but at the first daycare he was at, he wouldn't nap at all. At Goddard he takes 3 hour naps like he does at home.. I absolutely love his teachers!!! They really know your child and really care about you as well. And lastly, I cannot say enough amazing things about Ms. Lisa, the director. Both kids absolutely adore her and I don't know what I would do without her love and support. She has made the transition to NC extremely easy and has been there for my family in more ways then a school needs to be. I highly recommend this daycare because of the teachers and because of the amazing director!!!!

The West Goshen Goddard School has been a part of my family's lives for close to 7 years now. I've had two children go through their programs and couldn't be happier. The staff has always been extremely welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable. The school is very well maintained and secure. I have no worries when I drop my child off there because I know she is safe and in great hands. The owner Jen Zapata is incredibly caring and has been a tremendous blessing to my family over the years. I am very proud to have had my children go to this school and would recommend it to anyone!

Both my daughters went here from the time they were three! I have seen this school almost from inception. To be honest, I was concerned when I started sending my second one, assuming that they wouldn't be as enthusiastic about providing quality care as they were when my older one went there given the fact that they were an established business. But honestly, they have remained the same since the day they started. The warm greeting of the staff when you go to drop or pick up your child, taking care of your kids with utmost love and affection, a wonderful curriculum, respecting your child's want of space, etc. My little one is a very shy kid not prone to talk outside home. The teachers have never made her feel like she wasn't welcome in any of the class activities. She talks so affectionately of all her teachers there! I have to thank Jeff and Nancy for the amazing work they are doing and a big thank you to all the teachers who have given so much love, affection and care to both my daughters, especially the little one, who was always made to feel like she wasn't any different just because she wouldn't speak in class. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

We have had 2 children enrolled in the Goddard School Waxhaw for the past 4 years. We have been extremely happy with both the teachers and administration. Currently, my son who is 3, attends this location and absolutely loves it. He is always so excited to go to school. He runs up to the front door wondering if Ms. Lisa, the director is going to be in the office. He always looks for her to hug when he enters and leaves. Then he waves at his old teachers as he goes by his old classrooms. As a parent, seeing my son happy in this environment is the best testament of how great this school is. Both of my sons have been happy at this location. We have been happy with all of the teachers my sons have had, but a special shout out goes to Ms. Ashley who has been both of my sons favorite!

My son Christopher has been attending the Goddard School in Sparks since he was 8 months old. He is now getting ready to graduate from their Kindergarten Program. He recently took the WCSD First Grade Evaluation Exam in which he scored extremely high. The evaluator said to me that he was already at or above First Grade level. Thanks to John, Jody, Nikki, Anna, and all of their teachers and staff doing such a great job educating him.
