Arnold 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.

  • Every Goddard employee goes above and beyond to make our family feel safe, heard, and valued. I wouldn’t send my son anywhere else! There’s no one else I would trust with my kiddo.

  • We’ve been so impressed with this The Goddard School in Arnold. Our little boy loves school and learning. A big part of this is because of the daily experience he gets at The Goddard School in Arnold. I know he is safe and have no worries when he is dropped off for the day. All the teachers show kindness and communicate effectively. We love this school.

  • I absolutely love Goddard! My child has learned so much and grown as a person since being there the last 2 years. I love the teachers and front office staff as well. I feel happy knowing I'm sending my child somewhere that is loving and has his best interest in mind, plus teaches him so much!

    Preschool Classroom

  • I've sent two children to Goddard: my oldest in doing very well in 3rd grade, while my youngest is in their pre-K classroom. Goddard has helped my children prepare for Kindergarten in a safe and structured environment. I feel their curriculum not only has them prepared academically, but also socially to be prepared to learn at the next level.

  • The staff is amazing. We love how friendly and attentive they are to the children every day. Our kids absolutely love each of their teachers and are excited to go to school. The curriculum and fun loving environment are top on our list and we would recommend The Goddard School to anyone.

    Goddard Graduate

  • I love the heart and soul everyone dedicates to the children. You can tell every child is loved and cared for. My daughter every once in a while has a day she says she doesn’t want to go to school, but as soon as she gets there and sees her friends and teachers she is excited. On rough mornings my daughter’s teachers help guide her focus towards something fun. I really appreciate everyone’s great attitudes every day and I suggest Goddard Arnold to all of my friends with children.

    Preschool Classroom

  • Friendly, welcoming staff from the front reception to the lead teachers to everyone in between. It really feels like a family and they are all taking the best care of our precious babies! I also greatly appreciate the daily reports and look forward to seeing the pictures in my email. One of the best parts of my day!

    Chase & Wesley & Jack's Mother

    Preschool Classroom

  • The office staff and teachers have all been fantastic for the past 2 and a half years we've been at Goddard. They truly care about our child and his development. Our son asks to go to school every day, even on the weekends and misses his teachers when he is not at school. They always have fun, new curriculum for the children and make learning enjoyable. Couldn't recommend more!

    Logan's Mother

    Preschool Classroom

  • I like the teachers really focus on the kids and the individual needs of my child. They are open to feedback and address any concerns I have. I am happy with the curriculum and the development of my child. I appreciate the honesty and feedback. I love the positive attitude and energy all teachers and staff have.

    Kennedy's Mother

    Preschool Classroom

  • Every teacher and staff member is so personable. We have no problem asking questions about our child's care. I love the tadpoles app and updates on curriculum covered. It's amazing to see how the lessons taught at this age are carried over into a happy toddler at home. He has grown SO much in the last year; we are truly astonished!

    Ford's Mother

    Toddler Classroom

  • Tadpoles has to be our absolute favorite. Being able to see what our child is doing throughout the day with pictures and end of day summary is reassurance she is on track to a successful education. Goddard is a top notch "school" in our opinion and is way more than a daycare center. You can tell from day one that a lot of thought and planning has gone into the structure and curriculum.
