Gilbert (Higley) 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.

  • I love the owners/directors, the teachers, the other families, the curriculum, and how much my kids love it! The staff truly cares about each kid and they are so loved. I am constantly blown away by how much they are learning, and they have so much fun doing it. They get so excited to go to school every day. Amazing experience!

  • I love love love the staff at Goddard! They really do take my son in as their family and I know he's in a safe environment. I appreciate that the school works off of our schedule/goals and continues the progress that we have made at home. The in-person and app communication is great too, I don't ever feel like I miss updates. Enrolling our little guy into Goddard has been one of the best decisions and I couldn't be happier!
