Owings Mills 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 attention to detail for my child and the updates I get throughout the day of the activities he is doing! Even though he’s just a baby, they still have a challenging curriculum for him to engage in daily!

  • The staff is very friendly, considerate and helpful. My daughter loves every adult she comes in contact with and the energy is reciprocated. She loves going to school and showing us what she's learned in school including some many songs, though processes, some Spanish, Mandarin, and ASL.

  • Clean safe environment. We very much appreciate the thoughtfulness that goes into the planning and curriculum provided as well as the various activities. There’s never been a time where we question safety or care for our children. Great place to be. Ownership and staff are always open for communication and dialogue as needed.

  • What can I say about The Goddard School. From the moment you walk into the lobby you know that your child is in the right place. The safe, secure environment, warm, friendly faces of the staff combined with positive attitude is excellent. They teach at a high level and we notice how our children have made great strides in their overall development. The Goddard School is the best place to start children off on the right educational and social growth path.
