Waldorf 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 teachers have been fantastic, and I really appreciate the school's cautious approach to staying open during the COVID-19 crisis.

  • Love love love! My son is excited to go to school everyday and used to cry when he had to leave! He’s learning so much , and I can tell there’s care and thought put into everything they do because he absorbs it. I look forward to hearing the excitement in his voice when he tells me about his day! Love the pics and updates throughout the day also! The daily report is amazing and helps us to talk about his day. So glad he is enrolled. Ms Hayley is so good with him and the other students.
