Alpharetta (State Bridge) 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 going to the Goddard School off State Bridge for 5+ years now and I LOVE the team at this school. Tom and Debbie (the owners) are fantastic and the Director and Assistant Director, Debbie and Krystal, treat my kids like they are their own. I highly recommend this day care to anyone in the area.

    Infant Classroom

  • My little LOVES the Goddard School! She wakes up every morning and asks "is it a school day?" because she looks forward to interacting with her teachers and friends. As a parent, I love the low turnover rate, the small class sizes, the healthy lunches, and how well the school communicates with our family. Our little comes home from school every day with a story to tell us about what she learned in class that day - and hearing these stories from her is our favorite part of the day!

  • We have been delighted with Emily’s experience at Goddard! Miss Lilly really seems to care for the children and families. It’s so nice when we walk in and it seems like the whole staff knows mine and Emily’s name. This is our first “school” experience with Emily, And we’ve only been enrolled for a few weeks, but we could not be happier With everything we’ve seen. We are so grateful!
