Auburn 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.

  • Goddard values education but also is a loving environment for my children. The communication between teachers, parents, and directors is better than any other school/child-care facility I have seen.

    Infant Classroom

  • We feel that our child is safe at the Goddard School, safety is our priority. He is welcome, the teachers and teachers assistants are so kind, the building is clean and updated, and morning and afternoon snacks being provided is a big relief for busy parents! Outside time offered when the weather permits, art activities everyday. We just love that our baby is in good hands.

    Toddler Classroom

  • The teachers are amazing! I feel very comfortable leaving my son (4 months) with them because I know he's getting the best possible care while his father and I are at work. The facility itself is also great, in terms of security, cleanliness, etc.

    George 's Mother

    Infant Classroom

  • The teachers do such a good job of caring for my childs physical, emotional, and developmental needs. He is so happy and has learned so much. It's amazing to see his growth.

    Ezra's Father

    Toddler Classroom

  • Everyone is always happy, and you can tell they enjoy what they do...which translates to taking excellent care of the kids.

    Brianna & Noah's Mother

    Pre-K Classroom

  • We are so exceptionally happy with the care provided at The Goddard School. One of the most telling things about the school is how clear it is that the teachers all love what they do. We toured many centers between Auburn and Boston when we were pregnant and so many of them had staff that looked unhappy and unsupported. Every teacher and aide we have worked with has been so invested in our child's growth and development, as well as our family. We feel so lucky!
