What our parents say

Blackburn Family

I truly cannot put into words how much my wife and I love the school and would continue to be a part of it had it not been for relocation. From my experience with the owners and all the teachers and staff at this school, everything has been nothing short of remarkable. Facilities, curriculum, along with everything else has been a wonderful experience. We can only hope to find another school in our new location which excels at the standards as this Goddard School does.

Happy, friendly staff! Excellent standards.

Tour Experience

First of all, my husband & I were very impressed by your welcoming staff and the exceptional quality of your facility. Secondly, the fact that we were able to meet the actual owner was a pleasant surprise and sealed the deal for us. We toured several other educational institutions but Goddard was the only facility that added this personal touch and followed the F.L.E.X approach to learning. Keep up the good work!

Almost all the teachers seem very qualified and actually love working with kids. My daughter has learned so much since she has been there and all the activities they do are not only educational but fun. The cleanliness is fantastic too. It can't be too clean when dealing with kids and germs, especially in the younger classrooms! The teachers and directors have also been very attentive when listening to any concern I have had and each concern has been addressed

I feel like my children are learning so much more than the average 2-3 year old thanks to Goddard. They are definitely ahead in all skills. I recommend Goddard to everyone.

PreK Mom

I like that my child gets an early learning environment that is play based. She thinks learning is so fun. There is never any pressure for her to demonstrate new skills. I also love that they use gentle discipline so that I know my girl feels safe, secure, and loved even during difficult moments.

- Elena's Mother (Pre-K Classroom)


We love that our child is loved and nurtured by quality staff that follows a defined curriculum. Our child learns not only academic skills, but social skills as well. The owner is on site and is committed to providing quality care in an excellent environment. Our child receives weekly enrichment lessons lol yoga, music lessons, Spanish, art and outdoor exploration. We have looked across the Knoxville area and have yet to find a program that has such all around excellence.

- Wyatt's Mother (Preschool Classroom)

Infants & PreK

The owner and staff are so amazing. As a family new to the state, they have been very welcoming and loving to our kids. The activities offered through the school are unlike I’ve seen at any other school. Our kids love going to school every day and I have no doubt that by the time they start Kindergarten, they will be more than prepared.

- Hattie and John Knox's Mother (Infant Classroom)

Infant Mom

I love the friendly and caring environment. The teachers truly love and care for our child well being. I'm so glad we chose to place our child in your car.

- Charles's Mother (Infant Classroom)

PreK Mom

The teachers and directors are very friendly and professional. I love the app with the personalized photos of my son and the write up about his day. The teachers are always willing to chat about how my son is doing, ask about our family, and are clearly knowledgeable in child development. My son loves going to school and is engaged in such interesting lessons and activities.

- Baby and Weston's Mother (Pre-K Classroom)

PreK Dad

Ms. Anoula is an exceptional owner/director. She employs a hands-on approach, and gets to know every student and family. Her staff members are excellent and reflect her kind and personal style.

- Caroline's Father (Pre-K Classroom)

From A Parent

From the first day my son started the front staff knew my son’s name. When I go to pay tuition I don’t have to give my name or son’s name, they knew us from day one! The teachers don’t hesitate to call me if they have a question about my infant. And they welcome him with open arms each morning! The teachers also talk to me about his day instead of assuming I will read the daily report, and I like hearing it from them and getting the report!

- William's Mother (Infant Classroom)
