Lake in the Hills 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 teachers are absolutely amazing! My 5 month old son loves all the activities they have planned for the day. They are great communicating anything with my husband and I. It really gives me great comfort knowing my son is happy here.

    Elliot's Mother

    Infant Classroom

  • I love the fact that my son wakes up every morning very excited about going to school. He learns so much and only in 2 weeks I can see a big change in his behavior. He wants to do art, read books, talks about his friends at school and play. He loves his teachers (they do an awesome job) and not always wants to go home. He is a very happy boy which makes me a very happy mom.
