Vernon 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.

  • Great caring people! My child is developing so much!

    Annie & Joseph's Mother

    Infant Classroom

  • The staff at Goddard is simply the best. They care about each and every child as if they were their own. Everyone is friendly, professional, reliable and communicative. The facility is clean, yet fun. The curriculum is fun, well-planned, and well communicated. The food is healthy, and includes a wide variety of tastes, textures and ethnicities. Our son has been a student at Goddard for a little over a year now and he absolutely loves it. THAT is what matters most!

    Sam's Mother

    Pre-K Classroom

  • There's always something different going on (petting zoo, characters from Frozen visiting the school, etc.) so my son gets a variety of experiences and exposure to different things. I also appreciate that there is a specific learning plan so the skills he is learning are very specific and deliberate. I definitely recommend The Goddard School in Vernon Hills!
