Geist 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 staff are excellent. My child is learning several languages and quickly learning to write his name as well as other letters.

  • I know that when I send my child to school he is well taken care of. All of the staff members are very gentle and kind to every student. The morale with the teachers is different at this school! You just walk in and get greeted by smiling and welcoming faces! This is hands down the best school in the area! Safety is their top priority and it shows! We love how much our child is thriving!

  • Everyone is well educated and very respectful. I love how I am greeted everyday in and out! I love the way all the teachers give my son the time and attention he needs! I love that he is learning so much and is remembering everything. Lawrence GODDARD is the best school ever! I wish they went past pre-k!
