What our parents say

Family-like Community

We love The Goddard School! We have been a part of this family for six years now, and I wouldn't send my kids anywhere else. I love how seriously everyone takes their roles in these kids' lives, and the kids learn while having so much fun. When looking for care for my boys, my only concern was the people, not necessarily the building (though I obviously wanted something clean). The expanded campus is just the icing on the cake! Beautiful place, wonderful people!

Active Summer Camps

My daughter absolutely loves the Goddard in Anderson!! She started there in Preschool and now comes back every summer for their Amazing Summer Camp!! The teachers and staff are so kind and caring towards the students and their families!

- Olivia's Mother (Summer Program)

Talented Teachers & Administration

I love receiving the Daily Activity Reports for my girls. My oldest is 2 1/2 so when I ask her what she did today, her usual response is "I don't know". The reports are keep me up with what she's learning. The picture that accompanies it is also a wonderful touch. Everyone is extremely friendly and welcoming each time we walk through the door. From day one, the teachers and administrators have recognized and made my family feel important. It feels like a family when we are in the building.

- Emerson and Kennedy's Mother (Toddler Classroom)

Active Summer Camps

I like that there's a calendar easy to reference to understand the schedule of events in advance-that helps with planning for participation and attendance. I like that the summer camp was themed and there were different activiities planned that offered enough variety for my daughter and help her interest.

- Sasha's Mother (Summer Program)

Individualized Learning

We have been so impressed with the kindergarten program at Goddard this year. As a parent, it is a joy to know that your child is in a caring, safe and supportive environment all day. I have seen so much growth with Brady this year, both academically and socially. Audri scaffolds her lessons to each student's level and helps ensure each student is reached right where they are. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Goddard! Thank you so much for your love and care for Brady!

Education & Curriculum

Goddard School Kindergarten is filled with a strong curriculum, creative teaching techniques & a commitment to learning. We have taken advantage of the full day program & love the energy & passion the teachers bring everyday. Jacob's reading ability has soared, getting weekly books targeted to his ability. His love of writing continues, with daily use of the writing ctr. We love Kindergarten & so does Jacob. I'm confident his move to Forest Hills will be seamless because he is so well prepared.

I appreciate how well the staff and directors have gotten to know my children. We have been with you for several years and our children have grown up with your staff. It is very family friendly, and I like how well you keep parents informed of what's happening both for the children and for the whole Goddard community (parent's nights, events, etc).

They are like a second family. They care for my girls, like theor own. My girls have such a good time at Goddard, have metso many friends and have learned beyond their years. They have excelled not only socially because of Goddard, but academically. We love Goddard!

Everyone is extremely friendly, which is the type of behavior that I want my daughter to be exposed to. Also, they do a wide variety of activities with even the littlest children which provide opportunities for development in a range of areas.

Everything! I love that you just don't teach 'typical' things at your school. You also incorporate yoga, gardening, recycling, etc. Makes me feel as though my money is well spent!

the teachers are great! I love the email summary about each day and the report on how much lunch was eaten. It's a great school and I would definitely recommend it to others.

- Isabella's Mother (Summer Program)

Education & Curriculum

I love the educational aspect of the Goddard School. I know that my daughter is there to learn through manipulation and loves the new experiences she gets to participate in and enjoy. She is excited to go everyday and tells me how much fun she has. Also, the teachers are amazing and truly care for the children.

What's not to like? :) My son has grown so much in your care, and he is meeting milestones and making discoveries like never before. I firmly believe Goddard has fostered a new sense of wonder in my son, and he seems so happy and excited to go to school each day. As a first time mom, I can't convey in words how much that means to me! There is a real sense od security and comfort in watching Jeremy light up when he sees his teachers. It makes going to work much easier for me, for sure!

Having a partner with my child during the morning drop-off. Separation anxiety in my child was strong and since we have been at Goddard, the anxiety level has been steadily decreasing.
