Elgin 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 owners are amazing...the staff is so caring, kind, they communicate. They are so clean and I don't worry about Covid, they take it very serious and our up to date about everything. I also would like to add that my daughter went there from 2013-2016 and many of the same teachers and staff are still employed, goes to show they love their jobs and the owners take care of them. Thanks!!!

    Violet & Vincenzo's Mother

    Toddler Classroom

  • The staff is fantastic and you know your kid is safe and well taken care of. It’s a great environment.

    Hugh & Amelia's Mother

    Preschool Classroom

  • People are wonderful. Teachers and the curriculum really helped our children develop in a fun and positive learning environment.

    Leah & Aubrey's Father

    Pre-K Classroom

  • They are dedicated to children's learning and safety, and don't compromise on either. The teachers, owners, and all staff are loving and caring. They are constantly reevaluating what they do to ensure a fun and engaging learning environment. We could not recommend them higher!

    August & Silas's Mother

    Preschool Classroom

  • Every single teacher we've had is fantastic. They're very attentive to the children's needs and it is not like a typical "day care" where people just look after your kids while you can't watch them. This is a "learning" and "teaching" day center facility. Both owners are very much interested in every child's well-being. A very well-structured environment for any child

    Matthew Evan's Father

    Pre-K Classroom

  • I love the positive, nurturing environment Goddard (Elgin) creates—it helps to maximize our son’s learning and growth. Staff also promote positive social/emotional skills that contribute to the full growth of a child.
