Exceptional Education and Care

We offer a premium educational experience that's nationally accredited by two respected accreditation organizations. And we make sure to recognize Schools that go above and beyond our already high expectations with our Circle of Excellence Awards!


We take education seriously and as such ensure that The Goddard School maintains high-quality, national accreditations, including Cognia and Partnership for 21st Century Learning: A Network of Battelle for Kids.

  • Cognia is a global organization with a holistic approach to continuous improvement of education through accreditation and certification, assessment, professional learning and customized improvement services.

  • Partnership for 21st Century Learning: A Network of Battelle for Kids is a national non-profit organization that collaborates with schools and communities to help them understand and implement important 21st century learning for all students.


  • Circle of Excellence

    In addition to accreditations, we also have two of our own awards that recognize top-performing Schools: Circle of Excellence and Circle of Excellence President’s Club.

    Circle of Excellence members uphold GSI’s fundamental principles for the entire Goddard franchise system to continue positioning Goddard as the thought leader in early childhood education and care, to promote and enhance the Goddard brand for the benefit of all stakeholders and to improve the services we deliver to Goddard School customers.

    Circle of Excellence President’s Club recognizes Schools in the top five percent of profit margin and core occupancy that also consistently incorporate current programs, such as enrichment programs and the enhanced touring process. Members also have the top five percent of Schools with the highest rated educational programs.
