Buckeye (Verrado) Reviews & Recognition

The love and commitment of our Goddard families inspires us every day. To help make each child’s learning experiences the best they can be, we are always happy to listen when parents share their expectations. Here’s what our families have to say.

  • We have been with the Goddard school for over two years and have been impressed with the teachers and administration. Leaving your child for the day is a tough decision, but they make it easy. My son thrives in the Goddard environment and comes home so excited about his day at school. He has learned so much and continues to learn and grow under their caring watch. I recommend Goddard to anyone looking.

    Bryson's Mother

    Pre-K Classroom

  • Up until this recent school year started, we had two kids going to Goddard and they've loved it, as have we. One was in there from two years old until she started Kindergarten and her transition to her new school has been great. We feel she is so much more prepared for that environment than she would have been without Goddard. Her little sister still attends Goddard and we expect to have the same success.
