Chanhassen 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 staff at Goddard has been second to none. Their dedication to the social and emotional development of these kids is amazing and then add on the academics they creatively weave into the classroom through play and fun activities, we could not be happier to be a Goddard family!

  • I love the academic focus that Goddard has to offer. I have witnessed my children growing and developing in a way that will create a strong foundation for success when they enter kindergarten. Communication is easy and clear, the teachers have built strong relationships with each child, and the activities and experiences my children have been a part of are memorable.

    Lilah's Father

    Preschool Classroom

  • Professionalism of all staff, that the center directors take care of business while the teacher directors are in charge of teachers. Classroom teachers seem to really care for the children and you can tell they love their jobs - it doesnt feel like a burden for them to be working there. Clean building, nice facility.

    Graham's Mother

    Toddler Classroom

  • The teachers in each level have been helpful in important transitional and formative years for our daughter. She enjoys going to school and my wife and I are comfortable knowing she is well cared for during the day. Not only do they teach and meet the immediate needs of the child, but the affection they also show and demonstrate with all the children is comforting. It's no wonder our daughter is happy there - it's like having a family member being with her during the long workday.

    Penellope's Father

  • The close-knit environment. Good preparation for kindergarten and learning multiple languages. Love the teachers
