Offering The Best Childhood Preparation for Social and Academic Success.

The love and commitment Goddard parents have for their children and their development inspires us to continually offer the best preparation possible.

What our parents say

Nurturing Envrironment

We love the infant classrooms. The teachers really help out when our child needs extra love and attention. These little details afford our family comfort in the fact that Cooper is with people who really do care about his well being. For working parents, that is really important to Derek and I and wanted to express our sincerest thanks.

Play Based Learning

I like that the school is play-centered. Some centers seem overly concerned with measuring learning, creating progress reports, forcing classroom-based lessons, etc. We want our child to be able to learn through play and exploring, and I feel like he gets to do that at Goddard. I love the exposure to different activities like art, music, Spanish, sign-language, etc.

Community

The Goddard School employs a strong sense of community among the children and their teachers. Having this sense of collegiality certainly eases the distress of having to leave your child(ren) and go off to work. The teachers listen compassionately and strive to create a warm, safe, and fun learning environment for everyone.

First Preschool Experience

My 3-year-old son is having a hard adjustment, as he went from having a nanny his entire life to going to preschool. They knew exactly what to do! The teachers gave him puzzles to bring back, and had all of the kids chant his name when he arrived, and he walked right into class without looking back! It has been so great to see him grow!

Teamwork

The team at Goddard is incredible. It's really great to see the relationships that are made between the teachers and our kids. We feel like their in great hands everyday which is so comforting as a parent. Keep up the great work!

Education

We recommend The Goddard to everyone who asks. For a classroom project, our youngest recently finished the phrase, "I love Goddard because... I love my teachers!" The staff are excellent and open, the activities for students are wonderful (including the in-center field trips), and the center is clean and safe. Our oldest, who went to kindergarten last school year, was fully prepared for a successful start to elementary school! Thank you!
