Lake Forest (Baker Ranch) 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 that Goddard's curriculum is STEAM based! I also appreciate the daily reports of what my child is learning everyday! I could not believe how many activities they are able to do in one day! The teachers are all rock stars! And my son LOVES going to Goddard! We are so happy to be a part of the Goddard family!

    Jalen's Father

  • Very clean and professional environment. We love the staff and the teachers way of handling kids, transitioning kids to school and overall communication . We really appreciate how they report about our child’s daily activities. Love the sick policy and how they check for wellbeing of every child before entering the school. Extremely content and thankful.

  • All the teachers are super awesome! I feel like they really care about my son. The front office is always friendly and responsive. The owner is so involved in her school and I think her leadership really sets the positive tone.

    Pre-K Classroom

  • The Goddard School philosophy appears to be a combination of teaching with planned lessons and play. Infants sing songs and have craft activities. There's a daily activity report and an occasional buggy ride where children spend some time outdoors. Most importantly you can tell Parina loves all the children and the teachers all seem to care for the children well.

  • Great staff. Nice, clean environment for the kids. And it's great that when some kids get sick who may be contagious, that they sanitize the classroom and require a doctor's note before the sick kid could return to school. It shows commitment to the well-being of all the kids. The owner is also very hands-on and treats everyone like family.
