Florence 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.

  • Excellent staff. My child is happy and feels welcome

    Ayanna's Mother

    Kindergarten Classroom

  • They have been extraordinary throughout the challenges the last year or so has brought. The teachers are happy to talk anytime you need to call with a question. They have all been fantastic adjusting to a new normal routine (drop off and pick up) and accommodating as much as possible.

    Kai & Brynnlin's Mother

    Pre-K Classroom

  • They are amazing, especially in the past year with all that has happened with the pandemic. Both my girls have been with them since they were 4 months old and now one is entering Kindergarten with them. I would not trust any one but Missy and her group of teachers with our girls. I am always recommending them. The waitlist maybe long but that proves the point how desired they are in this area.

    Sarah & Vivian's Mother

    Preschool Classroom

  • We love Goddard and are so impressed with how prepared our daughter was for kindergarten. The owner is very understanding and reasonable and our children love the teachers.
