Grand Rapids (Southwest) 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.

  • When walking in I notice immediately how clean everything is. The fact the building doesn't have carpet helps so much. Looking into the classrooms, you see the walls filled with color and artwork and pictures the students have worked on. Teachers are incredibly friendly and helpful. They want to be on the same page as you with your students. Since coming to Goddard, my children have shown a massive improvement in their speaking/vocabulary and the knowledge of the world around them.

    Preschool Classroom

  • Goddard has a high standard of quality ranging from the people that are employed, early learning that is taught, cleanliness, and overall welcoming feel. Our boys have loved Goddard and there’s no better feeling than knowing your kids are safe, learning, and looking forward to being there.

    Owen & Hayes's Father

    Preschool Classroom

  • Goddard has been exceptional in every possible way. They are extremely communicative throughout the day by sending mulitple pictures and notes of my child's day. Whenever I walk in the baby, there typically aren't any babies crying (they're baby whisperers I swear) and all the babies seem happy and content. I would highly recommend Goddard daycare!

    Hugh's Mother

    Infant Classroom

  • We feel welcome there. Our child is thriving and we do not worry about him when in Goddard’s care.

    Sloane's Mother

    Toddler Classroom

  • We have had consistency with the teachers. We have felt our little one has learned so much from school with her classmates and teachers. She is always coming home having learned new things. We like there is a sense of routine.

  • I love Goddard teachers like family. They’ve been super reliable and loving. I couldn’t ask for a better daycare for my baby! Considering most of her days are spent there, it’s a huge relief knowing she’s in the best hands possible when not with us.
