Silver Spring 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.

  • Great support and very beneficial! I've noticed significant positive changes in my daughter shortly after she enrolled in the school.

  • We’ve been very happy with Goddard. Our children happily arrive every day. The teachers seem excited to see our children and us. It’s pricey, but you get what you pay for. Money well spent!

  • Goddard is just so on top of everything. The second that something happens that is out of the norm - anything from a fire alarm to a global pandemic - they kick into action and communicate so effectively with parents. This communication is so crucial to parents not having to ever worry about what's happening with their kids. We always know they're getting top-rate care and education, and that situations out of the norm are handled so well.

  • The Goddard School in silver spring has people working for them who care for these children as their own. You can see the relationships help friends blossom and really shine in class because administrators, staff of all kinds learn as many of the children’s names as possible. They care about the children learning in a safe and secure environment where they are excited to learn. Nothing but glowing words for all of the staff, educators and education at the Goddard school.

  • I like the program and the involvement from the staff, as well as the updates via the tadpoles app. I think my child gets excellent care and would recommend the school to others.

  • All of my children are in or have been through Goddard. I couldn't be more please will the education they have received and the care they have been given. Due to the wonderful program Goddard provides, my children have been given an early advantage to success in many ways that will benefit them for many years to come. Would definitely recommend The Goddard School to anyone

  • Love how the teachers know the names of all the students - even from other classrooms! I appreciate the love and care that goes into my son and I see it on his face when I pick him up. Highly recommending Goddard to all parents!

  • Ms Harvey is an amazing owner and administrator. Her leadership during the response to COVID-19 has been a model for other learning institutions to follow. She makes great hires in her excellent staff and we couldn’t be happier with the commitment to safety and academics that Ms Harvey has instilled in everyone at Goddard Silver Spring.
