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.

Our Reputation!

Everyone is so warm and kind at Goddard, it’s truly a great experience for us to send our child there. He is already growing and learning so much, and we can tell he’s happy to be there. Best daycare in Knoxville!

- Eli's Mother (Infant Classroom)

The learning environment at the Goddard school is exceptional. Active learning is taking place in all aspects of the daily routine!

- Cooper, Franklin and Ella's Mother (Pre-K Classroom)

We love all things about Goddard!

We love all things about Goddard! I love how they all know my boy and our cars, it shows they care. I love how much more advanced my littlest is compared to his older siblings at their age, and it's because of Goddard. I am a first time working out of the home mom even though I have 4 babies. Goddard eased my transition and continues to do so with each class my boy moves too. I wouldn't trade this school.

- Bennett's Mother (Toddler Classroom)


Every employee I’ve interacted with has been WONDERFUL. I love the learning I’m seeing . Most of all I love the pictures and curriculum and moment of the day and all the parent interaction. My kids and I couldn’t be happier!

The staff at Goddard are the most compassionate, loving and educated staff for child growth I've encountered. You will not find a better staff for education and social growth for your child.

We love how our son is loved and cared for like he was one of his tea hers own children. He has learned so many new things while at Goddard!

Excellent curriculum & dedication, professional staff. Facility is state of the art

- Ari'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)

The staff is like a second family. They are welcoming and inviting. We couldn't imagine taking our son anywhere else.

- Mason's Father (Infant 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)

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)

Goddard School - Knoxville

I love the personal attention each child receives from teachers and administration! Everyone cares about our children. The curriculum is both educational and fun. We trust our children in the hands of our Goddard family! We have recommended Goddard to everyone with small children.

- Cole, Ava and Wyatt's Mother (Toddler Classroom)

The Goddard School does a great job enriching my child throughout the day. Their location is super convenient for us.

- Rylee's Father (Toddler Classroom)

My 2 preschoolers have learned SO much in the 6 months they’ve been at Goddard. They can’t wait to get to school and paint, play outside, and make messes that they wouldn’t normally get to do otherwise. They don’t even realize they’re learning; they’re just having fun! Their teachers are so attentive and loving towards them as well. I mean it when I say I couldn’t ask for a better setting for my kids!!
