Gambrills 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.

  • We love that there is an actual curriculum. The security of the school is great and the staff is always so friendly!

    Gavin & Claire & Quinn's Mother

    Preschool Classroom

  • I love the creativity in the lesson plans which gives the children a chance to explore their imagination while learning. I love the variety of language options the children get to learn. Whenever there are parental concerns the team has addressed them immediately with care and consideration. Thank you for all you do to make sure you hire the most qualified and caring individuals to help foster the most vibrant classroom setting for our children. I know my child is in great hands.

    Noah & Emilia's Mother

    Preschool Classroom

  • The competence of the staff is incredible. Everyone is always on top it. I have no clue how they keep up with so many little ones, and yet they still have time to give me and my husband one-on-one attention when we drop off and pick up our son. No one ever seems to be out of the loop, and we can trust that our son is well taken care of and in very good hands no matter who’s in the classroom with him. The peace of mind we have with Goddard is priceless.

    Noah's Mother

    Toddler Classroom

  • We have been happy at The Goddard School in Gambrills, MD for the last 4 years. Our son has grown and learned there and now our daughter is in the infant room. We couldn't be happier with the teachers and the care they give our children.

    Dean & Nora's Mother

    Infant Classroom

  • Our kid loves it here. He’s grown up here over years now and feels very comfortable with all his friends and teachers. As parents we are equally comfortable dropping our kid off in a safe environment where he has learnt various skills through the day and more importantly has a good time. I would recommend Goddard absolutely

    Siddharth's Father

    Preschool Classroom

  • We have had a wonderful experience with Goddard. We transferred from another preschool and since attending Goddard, our son has come home singing, telling us all about things like space and science, and even starting to read. His growth has been exponential. Not to mention, the family events, special speakers, and other activities have made learning even more fun for these young minds. We are so happy to have moved to the Goddard School!

    Zachary's Mother

    Pre-K Classroom

  • Very clean, professional staff, and extremely friendly loving teachers. They have a great playground with turf so the kids don’t get filthy outside! I love the fact that the facility will heat up lunches and you can bring in breakfast and your kids can eat it in the morning. The curriculum is great and I love the breakdown and daily reports you get at the end of the day.

    Leila's Mother

    Toddler Classroom

  • So much. We attend the Gambrills, MD, Goddard School. Everyone - the owner, the directors, the lead teachers, the assistant teachers - are fabulous. Our 1-year-old son seems to love every teacher he's had, and is fairly attached to a few. He is almost always happy when I pick him up at the end of the day. The school is managed exceptionally well. The school also has the best facilities (eg, shaded playground, separate infant and toddler rooms...) and security I've seen among the local options.
