We have been taking our children to Goddard since they were 6 months old and could not be happier. Our oldest just transitioned to Kindergarten and the move was seamless. He is thriving in kindergarten and I believe this is due in large part to the team at Goddard! I recommend you to all of our friends and neighbors!
Alex & Chloe's Mother
I feel like my son is well cared for by everyone at the school. He demonstrates to me that he is learning a lot in class and comes home happy at the end of the day.
Cooper & Carter's Mother
I like the picture updates and the report at the end of the day to know what activities he did, how much and what he ate, diaper changes, etc. The staff is also very nice and call whenever they have concerns
Silas & tbd-infant's Mother
The staff is wonderful in the infant room. The director is also very friendly and involved as she greets the kids by name every morning. We also like that they send pictures of the fun things the infants are doing throughout the day. We have loved it so far!
I like the teacher and staff engagement with the children. It is a happy place to bring children and we feel the positive energy from staff. We also like the structure and system in place.

We absolutely love love love The Goddard School! Finding childcare can be one of the most stressful things ever and it's so nice to know your child is with reliable loving teachers who want to see the children be happy and succeed.
Henry & Baby TBD's Mother
1.) Amazing team 2.) Positive environment 3.) Great curriculum
This school keeps my baby safe, makes her happy, helps her learn, fosters friendship and learning. It is the absolute perfect environment for my daughter, my heart. I am so thankful grateful and all the other words that I found Goddard in Brooklyn Park. The teachers and staff and families there have made me feel at peace knowing my baby is in their care. We love it so much we moved closer to the school.
We had a wonderful experience with Goddard and would (and have) recommend them to anyone!
We have been bring our kids to Goddard School for 7 years and love the cleanliness, professionalism, attentiveness, and friendliness of the staff and environment. We recommend Goddard School to everyone looking for high-quality care for their babies-preschoolers.

Ella & Sophie & Thomas & Margaret's Mother
High quality education. Responsive, friendly staff.
I like that the school is play-centered. Some centers seem overly concerned with measuring learning, creating progress reports, forcing classroom-based lessons, etc. We want our child to be able to learn through play and exploring, and I feel like he gets to do that at Goddard. I love the exposure to different activities like art, music, Spanish, sign-language, etc.
The Goddard School employs a strong sense of community among the children and their teachers. Having this sense of collegiality certainly eases the distress of having to leave your child(ren) and go off to work. The teachers listen compassionately and strive to create a warm, safe, and fun learning environment for everyone.
My 3-year-old son is having a hard adjustment, as he went from having a nanny his entire life to going to preschool. They knew exactly what to do! The teachers gave him puzzles to bring back, and had all of the kids chant his name when he arrived, and he walked right into class without looking back! It has been so great to see him grow!
We recommend The Goddard to everyone who asks. For a classroom project, our youngest recently finished the phrase, "I love Goddard because... I love my teachers!" The staff are excellent and open, the activities for students are wonderful (including the in-center field trips), and the center is clean and safe. Our oldest, who went to kindergarten last school year, was fully prepared for a successful start to elementary school! Thank you!
