Child Preperation

I feel like the preparation that our children have received for kindergarten really put them a step ahead of everyone else. The emphasis on the kindergarten curriculum really makes a difference.

The teachers are wonderful and caring, the staff is organized, the space is clean, and all of the staff and faculty members are professional. I always feel that my children are safe and cared for.

Development for the whole child

My daughter has developed so much since she has been at Goddard. She knows her ABC's and 123's all before 2 years old. The teachers are wonderful and truly care about the kids. My daughter is social, she has no anxiety when she leaves us and always is happy when she comes home. We are very happy with our choice!

Academic success

The Goddard program is designed to ready our child for formal education such as kindergarden and I believe my children are better prepared for academic success. From learning through music, stories, and numbers- our children have many opportunities to spend time with the teachers in a small group that facilitates personal attention. Also, I like that meal consumption is tracked so that we know how much the babies had to eat.

One of a kind school

Goddard Norwood is more than just a school, its a family. From the owner, to director to all the teachers, full time or part time there is nothing but love for all the children. It brings me comfort on a daily basis knowing my girls are in a safe environment while gaining knowledge left and right. Truly a one of a kind place and would recommend to all.

Learning through play!

I love the FLEX play based learning program and the use of the tadpoles program for daily reports. The best really is getting a picture randomly Of your kid while you're at work seeing how much fun they're having at Goddard!

- Nathaniel's Mother (Toddler Classroom)

Goddard meets our needs.

The Goddard School provides our child with a safe, clean, and fun environment. The crafts, music, and activities are wonderful and honestly probably more than we would do on a daily basis had one of us decided to care for our child full-time. The staff are friendly and care about our child, which is obviously a requirement in our minds.

Variety of developmental milestones

My daughters have been exposed to a variety of subject areas including language arts, science and math. The education of the children starts from their very first day of enrollment into the school. Which I love! I also love that my daughters learn through play. It keeps them interested and eager to learn!

- LeeAnna, Grace and Caroline's Mother (Preschool Classroom)

Classroom center rotations

From age 2+, the classrooms provide structure and make learning fun. In PreSchool, we are happy with the rotations for creative art, science, math, etc that keep a 3 year old engaged and happy throughout the day!

- Tyler and Mia's Mother (Preschool Classroom)

Goddard is family

Even the youngest student's at Goddard receive stimulating and engaging education through play and exploration. Additionally, there is a truly family-like atmosphere.

- Joseph's Mother (Infant Classroom)

Learning at their own pace

One of the things I like most about Goddard is how they make learning fun and exciting for the children. Each child can learn at his/her own pace and is kept interested in differnt subjects through awesome projects. The teachers at the school are amazing. I have not met a teacher yet that I didn't like. The teachers truly care about each child.

- Lily's Mother (Junior-K Classroom)

Infant care

My baby is an infant, Goddard has given her lots of opportunities to explore different textures, music, and help her advance in holding a bottle, expressing herself, etc. Also being socialized with children her own age has really benefited her.

- Alyssa's Mother (Infant Classroom)

Individualized Attention

Thoughtful, individual attention, comprehensive approach to learning, long hours, committed teachers.

- Theodore and Maya's Father (Pre-K Classroom)

Enrichment Programs that work!

Both of my girls attend Goddard. We love the experience they are both getting. My almost 3 year old can count to 15 in Spanish !! Both of my girls are social and have no problem separating from us. We love the teachers and we trust them with our kids better than anyone !

- Kaitlyn and Hailey's Mother (Toddler Classroom)


The environment @ Goddard is very loving. I never see any staff in a bad mood- quite the opposite. Mr Anthony and the entire team are very caring and loving. The teachers work incredibly hard- they are very creative in how they engage our children in learning. There is also a lot of fun. We have been in Goddard for 2 years and are very happy with our choice. We feel that our son is getting a strong and diverse education in a loving way.

Constant Reassurance When Your Child Is At School

Where to begin? The constant reassurance that our most prized possession is OK-with the TapPoles app; the open door policy as well as the welcoming staff; the Daily Reports - knowing that our child is constantly looked after and cared for (sometimes better than I would); the socialization that my child is getting amongst the students and the COUNTLESS activities that you provide; the clean environment; the community as a whole is what I want my child to know life is all about.

- Mickey's Mother (Infant Classroom)

Low turnover

I like that there is lower turnover than other schools, the curriculum, the friendliness of the staff.

- Tyler and Mia's Mother (Preschool Classroom)

Care is the best

I love the teachers and the care they give to my son every day. I love that they encourage creativity and introduce new activities so that he learns while having fun. Plus, seeing his pictures through tadpole makes the work day a little bit easier. I know 100% that he is being cared for by the best.

- Steven's Mother (Infant Classroom)

Smooth Transitions

The teachers and staff at the Goddard School in Norwood have done a terrific job adjusting my son to a new school year. He sometimes has a difficult time transitioning between years and new activities but he has had no issues this year and it is all thanks to the smooth transition of the Goddard staff.

- Daniella and John's Mother (Pre-K Classroom)

Accommodating Needs

Always willing to accommodate parents needs. Children are very well taken care of. If any issues arise, they are prompt in solving it.

- Emilia and Victoria's Mother (Preschool Classroom)

Keeping child engagement

The teachers are always keeping the kids engaged. They add new activities while still keeping a fun educational routine. I've noticed how much my son has really opened up socially since he turned two. He is speaking in full sentences, singing along with songs, counting to 15, knows his alphabet, and is learning to playing well with others. Most importantly, he loves being there and I feel 100% sure that he is being loved and cared for at all times.
