What our parents say

Staff and Education

We were thrilled with The Goddard School. I thought the teachers and other staff were very nice and the facility is extremely clean and safe. I loved getting a detailed email daily so I knew how my children's day went. They also learned a great deal while enrolled, we were very sad to move. I highly recommend this location.

- Dominick and Zoe's Mother (Toddler Classroom)


Goddard has high standards for their teachers and staff and it is evident in my son's education. My son enjoys going to school and I am always impressed by what he is learning and comprehends at his age. I would definitely recommend Goddard to anyone who wants the best education for their child as well as being cared by warm and loving staff.

Education and Program

Amazing school. I searched all over the Virginia Beach area for the best daycare for my daughter and Goddard surpassed all my expectations. It is very safe, secure and clean. The teachers are amazing and truly care about my daughter. Plus the curriculum is excellent - they just don't "babysit" her she gets great education as well even at her age (toddler). Would highly, very highly recommend this place to everyone!!

- Lily's Mother (Infant Classroom)


It's an amazing clean facility my daughter loves to go to school and everything she know so far is the effort of her wonderful teacher Miss Kayla and Miss Ashley. Am a thankful and appreciative for this school, for all what they do to provide the best quality of education and care for our children. Thank you

- Celine and Renee's Mother (Pre-K Classroom)


We have and will continue to recommend the Goddard school. We wish there were an opening, as we couldn't be happier with our son's development using the Goddard philosophies of learning and play. He uses words like exasperating, actually and indeed! He is always telling us how the universe works, that you must have water to have a rainbow, and so much more! The Goddard School is the best foundation we could find for our little one. This is one happy momma!

- Jack's Mother (Pre-K Classroom)

Staff and Education

The daily reports, the approach to teaching (with flexibility taking into account each kid's learning rhythm and style), the teachers were always caring and attentive, the staff was friendly, the facilities are clean/big/new, the playgrounds are great and the curriculum is great!

From the staff, to the facility, to the curriculum, everything about Goddard is top notch!!!

- Aiden's Father (Kindergarten Classroom)


Connor has developed wonderfully at The Goddard School! He has found confidence in himself through interaction with his classmates and building lasting friendships. The teachers are always candid on feedback from his daily activities and good / "bad" days. We are saddened that this is the last summer with The Goddard School and will always have appreciation in our hearts for the time that Connor had there in his early developmental years. Thank you so much!

- Connor's Mother (Pre-K Classroom)


The routine the teachers and the learning materials has allowed my daughter to excel in her early education opportunity! She has the potential and the resources to do anything she wants in life. Thanks you to the entire staff. We will forever be grateful for the huge impact you’ve made in our daughters future ??

We had such a pleasant experience st the Lynnhaven Goddard school. My daughter enjoyed coming every morning and always had a blast between all the crafts, in school field trips and the amaziny friendly staff! If there was ever any issues or concerns they were always addressed promptly and I am thankful for what a smooth transition this was as it was my daughters first time at preschool!

- Noa and Arie's Mother (Pre-K Classroom)


Staff is amazing... You can see the pride they take in educating the children and the well being of each child. Dedicated to helping the children excel. Love that the education is inclusive of manners also.

Staff and Program

I have nothing but great things to say about the Goddard School. My daughter loves going there. She is a little shy in the mornings but the teachers always make her feel welcome and make dropping her off easy. I know when she is there, she is in good hands. She has already learned so much and has made some great friends!

- Payton's Mother (Toddler Classroom)


My son is excited every day he gets to go to Goddard. His teachers are very engaging, the program is well developed, and I love all the updates on his day.

- Grayson and Cooper's Mother (Toddler Classroom)


My son attends 2 half days a week and I still feel he gets a good amount of time for socializing and structure. I also like how his teachers send a couple pictures of him from the day and the routine daily checklists. Finally, I appreciate the Goddard's staff on their communication with the parents via email and the Preschool2me app.

- Caleb's Mother (Preschool Classroom)


The attention that Victoria gets. All activities stimulate her brain but in a playful way. I like her teachers a lot too.

The Goddard School staff and teachers create a very loving, supportive and fun learning environment. My husband and I appreciate and look forward to the daily progress reports and pictures we receive- it makes the day exciting for us all! Noah looks forward to every single day at Goddard. He has learned so much and we are so proud!

- Noah's Mother (Preschool Classroom)


All the teachers care about what they are doing and they enjoy making sure my kids needs are be attending to. We have been there for about 3 years and we were at a church base day care and what a difference, glad we are here, check it out.

- Luke and Kennedy's Father (Pre-K Classroom)


We like the owner and that she is always present. We love the repore that the teachers have with our children. We love the constant communication from Goddard, both verbal and from the daily reports. We also like how social our children are as a result of there experience at Goddard.

- Sydney and Porter's Father (Preschool Classroom)


Effective teaching styles. My 6 year old is: reading at a 2nd grade level, doing basic addition and subtraction, explaining physics fundamentals, Flexible scheduling. Awareness of food allergies. Keeping parents informed about potential food allergies in the classroom helps plan lunch menus and keeps my mind clear that we're not potentially hurting another student. Everything all together my child has a love for learning and behaves well.

- Taisen's Father (Kindergarten Classroom)


We love The Goddard School. Our daughter is always excited to go to school and comes home happy. The teachers and staff are amazing and so sensitive to the children's needs. We definitely recommend TGS!

- Lilly's Mother (Toddler Classroom)


We love that we know our daughter is safe and loved! We love getting updates and pictures via the app throughout the day, and the report at the end of the day. The staff is wonderful, and the security and cleanliness of the facility is great, which is important to us.

- Finley's Mother (Infant Classroom)


Friendly, commitment to excellence, the curriculum, and most of all the way my daughter is thriving at the school!
