Lakeville 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 Goddard School is more than a daycare or a preschool, it's a community that puts children first. The teachers are caring, knowledgeable and passionate. The fact that the school is owner operated is also a major plus.

Toddler Classroom

We love everything about The Goddard School, from the amazing teachers & staff, the safety & security, the daily reports, the fun play based curriculum & so much more. We could not be happier ~ our 9 month old daughter loves it as well & is thriving developmentally!

Julia's Mother

Toddler Classroom

This is a fun but at the same time structured environment for my three children. They are always happy when I drop them and pick them up which is important to me. They have learned so many things at this school and I feel like the teachers here truly cares about my children's educational needs. I would recommend this school to my friends and family without a doubt! There is no better place for young children to be than the Godard school in Lakeville.

Preschool Classroom

So far, we love it and it seems Maddie does too. We love the daily report card and photos we receive. The curriculum looks to be fun and engaging for Maddie, and it's been great to see her already learning and developing!

Infant Classroom

I like the staff, the teaching that my children receive, the fun and excitement that my children have at their school. I have a peace of mind leaving my children with Tom and Mary Sue and their team. I know that they will be taken care of, and have learning placed at the forefront of all that they do.

Preschool Classroom

I like the family owned aspect. Small infant classroom sizes. It's great that I get a report each day so I know what my kiddo has been doing all day. I know when I drop my child off that he is in a safe, loving environment.
