What our parents say

Enriching Toddler Curriculum

It's been awesome watching our child flourish at Goddard. We are so amazed, grateful and blessed to have found your school. Hoping to spread the word to other parents, like ourselves, who want the best for our child.

- Elerie's Mother (Toddler Classroom)



Our one year old daughter has been attending school there since it opened in November and we have been nothing but pleased with her care. The environment is warm and welcoming and the staff go over and above to make sure our daughter is getting excellent care. We very much appreciate the flexibility in curriculum and daily structure as our daughter's needs change as she gets older. The communication between the staff and parents is great and we love the daily pictures that are sent to us.

Providing a Safe and Fun Learning Environment

We love the very friendly and approachable staff. As a parent of a child with food allergies, Goddard has been great at accommodating our needs and has provided a safe and fun environment for our kids.

- Isla and Talia's Mother (Preschool Classroom)



Our daughter is absolutely thriving. We anticipated some natural "growing pains" like you'd see with any new school, but we've seen none of that....all the staff from the owners to the teachers have kept our daughter's education & development at the absolute forefront. We get daily emails and reports on what she learned and did, and every morning she is excited to go back and learn/explore more. Would recommend to anyone serious about their child's early learning.

Comments via a Third-Party Survey



The Goddard School is more than a daycare or a preschool, it's a community that puts children first. The teachers are caring, knowledgeable and passionate. The fact that the school is owner operated is also a major plus.

All Around Enriching Program

We love everything about The Goddard School, from the amazing teachers & staff, the safety & security, the daily reports, the fun play based curriculum & so much more. We could not be happier ~ our 9 month old daughter loves it as well & is thriving developmentally!

Qualified and Caring Teachers

The people make a place special. That is what Goddard has accomplished!

- Julia's Mother (Toddler Classroom)



This is a fun but at the same time structured environment for my three children. They are always happy when I drop them and pick them up which is important to me. They have learned so many things at this school and I feel like the teachers here truly cares about my children's educational needs. I would recommend this school to my friends and family without a doubt! There is no better place for young children to be than the Godard school in Lakeville.

- Violet, Lincoln and Stella's Mother (Preschool Classroom)



So far, we love it and it seems Maddie does too. We love the daily report card and photos we receive. The curriculum looks to be fun and engaging for Maddie, and it's been great to see her already learning and developing!

Happy Goddard Family. Infant and Preschool Program

I like the staff, the teaching that my children receive, the fun and excitement that my children have at their school. I have a peace of mind leaving my children with Tom and Mary Sue and their team. I know that they will be taken care of, and have learning placed at the forefront of all that they do.

- Jackson and Hannah's Father (Preschool Classroom)

Educational Infant Program

I like the family owned aspect. Small infant classroom sizes. It's great that I get a report each day so I know what my kiddo has been doing all day. I know when I drop my child off that he is in a safe, loving environment.
