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

Thank You

We just want to say thank you to all the Goddard staff & teachers for making Connor feel so special and cared for over the past 3 years. He started 3.5 years ago in the infant room and has quickly made his way around to the "big kids" room where he will be next year for his final year. Mike and I could not ask for a more caring and supportive school.

- Connor and Tyler's Mother (Preschool Classroom)

Learning is Fun!

All the teachers have a degree and background in early childhood education. There is a good balance of structure and individual learning so each child can express themselves. The day is filled with academically challenging yet fun activities and is also socially stimulating. As advertised... Learning is Fun! My son has said "I had fun" each and every day he has been at Goddard.

- Matthew and Caitlyn Rose's Mother (Pre-K Classroom)

Love The Goddard School!

I have watched my children grow & learn under the guidance of Goddard. The Owner, Gretchen, goes above and beyond to make her school a unique learning environment. The classrooms are taught by very loving & talented teachers. If you are looking for a good start to your kiddos education, a creative environment & a fun community look no further! Save your time searching high and low for a "daycare" because this one beats out the rest! Really do love Goddard!

- Myah, Johanna Burlington and Noah's Mother (Preschool Classroom)

We Love the Care Provided

We love the care provided to our kids at the Goddard School. The activities and programs that our kids are involved in are excellent and the faculty at Goddard are top-notch. Gretchen and Tracey and the rest of the staff really care about well-being of the kids at the school. We would highly recommend Goddard Schwenksville to anyone who may be looking for child-care and early childhood development.

Great Start!

There isn't a school year that goes by for my 13- and 9-year old daughters that I don't remember the GREAT START they received at the Goddard School. Both of our girls are distinguished honor roll students & thriving academically & socially. The caring teachers & staff at Goddard not only helped them learn fundamentals during their pre-school years, but they also instilled in my kids a true love of learning!

- Charlotte and Catherine's Mother (Goddard Graduate)

Best Decision

Making the move to Goddard was the best decision. Both Marley & Rowen have grown so much. Your entire staff is caring, hard working, and it shows how much they truly enjoy what they do.

- Marley and Rowen's Father (Toddler Classroom)

Uplifting Experience

We are so deeply grateful for all the time and love you have poured into McKenna's life. We could not have asked for a more nurturing and uplifting experience. This Goddard School is truly second to none.

The staff is caring and is very family-oriented! We cannot thank the staff enough for all they do in providing our kids with the foundational pre-k skills they need while at the same time caring for their social/emotional needs to grow and learn!

Care & Respect

Everyone on staff from the teachers to the administrators show consistent care and respect for our child and we feel comfortable dropping her off each day knowing she’s well taken care of. We’ve seen so much growth intellectually, emotionally, and in her personality since she’s been attending and it’s a direct reflection of the love and care they show her each day!

- LJ and Keegan's Father (Pre-K Classroom)


I trust them and that says a lot. They treat my child like he is their own and I feel their genuine love for him. I’d be lost without them.

- Grayson's Mother (Preschool Classroom)


The teachers and directors are absolutely amazing! They are like family and our kids LOVE them!

- Makenna and Mason's Mother (Summer Program)


The whole school is very family oriented! The staff has been there a while. There is always a warm welcome and they are very accommodating!

Easy Transition

I like the way the teacher's make my son feel as comfortable as possible during the transition from being at home all day with me to spending his days in school.

- William and Jonathan's Mother (Pre-K Classroom)


The Goddard School at Schwenksville is very welcoming and you can tell everyone genuinely cares about the kids.

- Benjamin and Charlie's Mother (Before/After School Program)

Happy Day!

The number one thing I like is hearing the staff say they love my children and their actions proving they do. I am happy with the curriculum. The administrators have been so wonderful and caring. I feel my children are safe, cared for, loved and happy all day long.

- Elyana and Cooper's Mother (Toddler Classroom)


We switched from Kiddie Academy and the difference is indescribable. Hands down would recommend Goddard everyday!
