Welcome to The Goddard School! We are extremely proud to be the first Goddard School franchise in Alabama which is accredited through SACS (Southern Association of Colleges and Schools). My family and I opened our doors to the community back in October of 2005. It has been a true pleasure serving our wonderful area of Hoover, Chelsea, Inverness and others over the past decade. We are conveniently located just off Highway 280 between 119 and Valleydale Road.

As an onsite owner and father of three children, I clearly understand the importance of identifying the best childcare programs that will nurture as well as prepare your child academically for Kindergarten. Our mission is to Love, Nurture and Educate the children.

Research has proven that children who attend a premier childcare program perform at a greater level throughout their school age career. Our highly qualified teachers aid with the growth and development of your child both academically and socially. We would be honored to serve your childcare needs. Come learn more about what The Goddard School has to offer and tour our school in Meadowbrook.
