What our parents say

No Better Staff in McKinney

The staff, the staff, the staff!! My daghter's teachers in the infant room have been incredible. So loving and nurturing as well as real partners to the parents. I could not have imagined leaving my 12 week old baby with anyone other than Q and Becky!

- Sienna Marie's Mother (Infant Classroom)

Advanced Education -- Thanks Goddard!

My five-year-old has been reading advanced books to me without any issues for about the last year, writing full sentences, counting to 200, and has an advanced understanding of science and the natural world. I have no doubt the quality care and instruction at The Goddard School can take a lot of credit for that.

- Caroline and Charlotte's Father (Goddard Graduate)

The Teachers Are Invested

As soon as I walked in, I knew I could leave my first baby here. It is the best balance of a loving, nurturing environment and a structured pre-school with amazing lesson plans. The teachers are genuinely invested in the development of each child.

- Nolan and Cason's Mother (Preschool Classroom)

Been There Since Day One

As parents, we entrust our greatest blessing to the staff at The Goddard School of McKinney every day and are extremely grateful for the care and guidance she receives. We have been patrons since it opened -- our oldest graduated last year, and this past summer we enrolled our newborn. We have recommended Goddard to neighbors, coworkers, family and friends and will continue to do so as we truly do not believe there is another preschool in Collin County better.

- Hailey and Mattie's Father (Toddler Classroom)

Feeling good as a Mom and Teacher

I am a very passionate pre-school teacher, but a concerned Mother first! Knowing our toddler is being loved, taught, and celebrated by all her teachers, five days a week, gives me the piece of mind to do what my husband and I do to contribute to the community. Her excitement about school gives me immeasurable joy!

- Zoya's Mother (Pre-K Classroom)

One Big Family

My little ones have been at Goddard since they were babies, and there is no other place that I would trust with my most prized possessions. Goddard treats my children with the utmost care, and it is evident that they truly LOVE my children and all the other little ones. Additionally, my children thrive in their classrooms; the teaching and curriculum are top notch. We feel so fortunate to have our Goddard family.

- Sadie and Ellie's Mother (Junior-K Classroom)

Making The Right Choice

We knew right away that we had made a fabulous choice by trusting The Goddard School with our precious angel each day. She has been loved and nurtured by the teachers and staff on a daily basis. We love our Goddard family.

- Sydney and Tyler's Mother (Preschool Classroom)

Differences Embraced

Goddard McKinney feels more like a family than a school. Our two sons attend, and our three-year-old has a speech disorder. It was a little scary for us to bring our barely verbal son to pre-school, but the staff embraced him and made sure that he has everything he needs to be successful. We're deeply grateful for the love and care shown to our boys at Goddard!

- Luke, Nathaniel and Gabriel's Mother (Preschool Classroom)

We finally got it right!

We toured many schools and, in fact, enrolled our daughter somewhere else before moving to Goddard. The curriculum is outstanding, the teachers are amazing and caring, and we loved the hands on, upfront approach by the owners.

- Jagger's Mother (Goddard Graduate)

- Andi and Ada's Mother (Junior-K Classroom)

Professionalism Is Always There

Positive experiences all the way around. We have been going to Goddard for 6 years now (2 kids) and the professionalism and care the staff has always shown is spectacular. We recommend it to anyone who wants their children to have a wonderful daycare experience.

- Grayson and Brooks 's Father (Preschool Classroom)

We Trust Goddard

I genuinely feel that I can trust Goddard with my children which is tough to do. Not all daycares are equal.

- Holden, Arianna and Nova's Father (Toddler Classroom)

Prekindergarten Is Amazing!

We love the staff at this school. They are amazing!

- Connor's Mother (Pre-K Classroom)

Teachers Are So Caring

The teachers are so caring. In 2 years our kids have gone, there hasn't been one issue. I'm so thankful to have teachers that care about our kids like they're their own. <3

- Ada, George and Albert's Mother (Infant Classroom)

Why Should You Choose Goddard?

The class size, curriculum, teachers, and all the extra activities to make each day special.

- Beckett's Mother (Pre-K Classroom)

My Child Is Truly Learning!

We love everything about Goddard! The teachers are wonderful and Valerie has so much fun. There are tons of fun activities and learning experiences for the kids. I can tell she is truly learning and having a blast. Plus I can always trust that she is safe and well cared for while at school.

- Valerie and Charlotte's Mother (Preschool Classroom)

Family Longevity Says A Lot!

I like that I send my child to a school not a day care. She isn’t put in front of a brand expected to just play all day. She has a set routine each day with goals in learning and discovery. There is little turnover in the children that are in her class and she has developed long term friendships with several of the children since she was an infant.

- Finley and Emery's Mother (Toddler Classroom)

Long List of Things to Love

The list is long! Low staff turnover, excellent teachers and staff, fabulous Harvest lunches (that my toddler eats enthusiastically), socialization, monthly billing, fun mixers and school fairs, art projects, pictures sent daily about what my kiddo did during the day... so much to love about Goddard. Also, Summer Camp programming was a blast!

- Oscar's Mother (Toddler Classroom)

Brilliant Experience for My Child!

The staff is incredible! They know my son and teach him new things every day. He comes home excited about learning and playing and making friends. This has been an absolutely brilliant experience for him.

- Leo's Father (Pre-K Classroom)

Our little guy doesn't like to go home!

We love the Goddard School, our little one absolutely loves being there!! He doesn't seem to like it when we pick him up, so you can tell he is always having such a good time. All the teachers we have had so far have been amazing, Karen will always have a special place in our hearts since she was out first teacher. Morgan and Haley have been amazing as well, we know that our little guy is growing and thriving because of them. Can't say enough good things!!

- Dexter's Mother (Toddler Classroom)

The Vibe Says It All

The staff is always welcoming during drop off and pick up. I love that there is music playing throughout the school, as well as in the classroom. It gives the environment a fun vibe! I enjoy looking at tadpole and seeing all the activities that my child is doing. The teachers do a great job at keeping the kiddos busy and learning something new each day. It makes me feel comfortable knowing I am leaving my child somewhere that I know she is loved and well taken care of.

- Ava's Mother (Toddler Classroom)

Communication is Key

I love that they immediately took time to get to know my child and say him name correctly and make him feel at home. They call and check on him when absent and have great staff and teachers. Communication is key and they do this very well!

- Rouhy's Mother (Toddler Classroom)

Home Away From Home For Our Three Girls

The staff goes the extra mile to help us feel part of the Goddard family.

- Elle, Evie and Cara's Mother (Pre-K Classroom)

Everyone Knows My Child's Name

We enjoy the strong combination of professionalism of curriculum and staff with a very familial atmosphere. Just a few months in, our son was seeing dramatic positive changes in his abilities and behavior. And by that time, nearly everyone at the school already seemed to know his name.

- Dashiell's Father (Junior-K Classroom)

Teachers Are Engaged

The teachers are extremely engaged in the child's learning and behavior paths! I couldn't ask for a better place for my very active and "need to get a ton of energy out" 18 month old!

- Riley Ryan and Declan's Mother (Toddler Classroom)

Friendly Staff Matters

Very friendly staff. Fantastic owners that are engaged with the kids and parents. My kids have loved it at Goddard.
