Atlanta (Midtown) 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.

  • The Goddard School is a very welcoming environment. Not only do they help your child transition into what could be a very scary situation with ease but the keep open communication with the parents so you know how your child is advancing and what curriculum they will be working on so you can reinforce the same practices at home.

  • Staff are highly qualified and engaged. The Goddard School offers a number of activities that reach the core of each individual student's learning ability and targeted talent. It's not a daycare parading as a learning institute. It's honestly the epitome of an early learning school.

    Toddler Classroom

  • My baby LOVES coming to school each day. She gets the biggest smile on her face when she sees her teachers. She is developing very quickly and the teachers are always able to answer my milestone questions. I also really like that they do different things in the classroom each day - from outside time to finger painting!

    Elena's Mother

    Infant Classroom

  • I like that there are so many thoughtful standards in place, that the teachers demonstrate all the time that they're really focused on the well being of the kids in Infant 1, that they take precautions when there are subtle behavior changes in the kids. I admire all the teachers and managers I've met, and the operation is beyond competent. It's a great, friendly experience and a reassuring place to leave Josie every day.
