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.

  • Communication has been great with goddard. Ms Ryan, Ms Courtney, and Ms Lydia always keep us informed and the kids live them like family

    Warren & Kendall's Mother

    Kindergarten Classroom

  • I would recommend The Goddard School because I trust the staff. Ms. Lydia, Ms. Courtney and Ms. Ryan have been nothing but accommodating. They show they care and I know I can trust to leave my son in their care and he will be in great hands.

    Demetrius & Nalani's Mother

    Before/After School Program

  • Our teacher makes sure that the parents are aware of the assignments that were discussed in school and sends home the worksheets which allow us to go over it with our child. This reinforces the lesson and helps when it’s testing time. Vocabulary, reading, and understand multiple areas from language, math, and science has been a major shift and we are appreciative.

  • 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.

    Preschool Classroom

  • The Goddard school provides exceptional education, friendly and compassionate staff, and curriculum that gives my daughter the advantage. I would definitely recommend

    Zaniah's Father

    Goddard Graduate

  • Staffs are friendly and respectful. They interact with the children and parents very well.

    Areeha's Mother

    Preschool Classroom

  • I’m more likely to recommend because of the amazing teachers we have had the pleasure of having to teach our son. He just turned 4 and already knows how to write and spell his first and last name, and now he is READING words, this is all due to our partnership with Ms Kendra. She introduces the lesson and we reintegrate it at home. The idea of HW was brilliant for kids this age. It also gives me as a parent the chance to see what he has learned. I think Ms. Kendra is a great teacher.

    Demetrius & Nalani's Mother

    Pre-K Classroom

  • Excellent teachers! Excellent facility!

    Zachary's Mother

    Preschool Classroom

  • The variety of areas in which the kids learn. It isn't rote memorization but rather interactive and broad scoped learning.

    Dorian's Father

    Goddard Graduate

  • The children are learning through play and are constantly involved in activities from a vey early age. In addition, the Waldof Goddard school is accredited which ensures compliance...and that speaks volume to the level of effort in preparing our children today for tomorrow careers.
