Chesterfield (Wildwood) 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.

  • I have been very impressed with the quality of teachers, the curriculum, and the School facility. My daughter has been attending since she was four months old and is now going on two years old. I think she is very advanced for her age and I credit her teachers with providing a loving, caring and rich educational environment in which learning through play is emphasized daily.

  • We only have a few weeks' experience so far, but our experience has been very positive. I feel safe with the pandemic. My child seems to enjoy the day (though he's not old enough to tell me about it yet). All staff I've interacted with have been friendly and helpful.

  • First, all of the teachers my daughter has had have been exceptional (easy to talk to, listen well, and my daughter has loved them!) I really like the variety of activities my child gets to do daily/weekly and that there is a schedule. Front office staff are friendly and knowledgeable too. Overall, wouldn't want my daughter to be anywhere else!

    Preschool Classroom

  • Caring staff with college degrees, wonderful facility with large indoor recreation space, variety of learning opportunities included in tuition price (music, computer lab, cooking, gym, special visitors), focus on making education fun. But most importantly that my kids come home every day with smiles on their faces, sharing something exciting they learned that day.

  • There are many things that I like about the educational services that Goddard provides to my children. For starters, my daughters are always greeted with a warm and friendly "Good Morning Caroline / Charlotte" from their teachers when they walk in to their classrooms. This has been the case for the entire time I have had them at Goddard, regardless of the classroom they were in. Goddard presents many different activities / play areas within the classrooms for the children to choose from during their "free play" time. I love the fact that Goddard provides so many different classroom-activities as well: library time, music room, gym, computer lab, etc. I am "one of those" parents that worries frequently about my children when they are not with me and have called the school many times over our 4 1/2 years to check in on my girls - every time I have "just called" to check in, the staff at Goddard has been extremely understanding and accommodating. That is huge to me. I also really like that Goddard plans different theme days or theme activities during the week for the kids and has special guests come in. There have also been many times when I am home with my daughters and they will say "I know what _____ is, it means _____" and I am floored by it. I ask them where they learned that and they say "I learned it at school". Both of my daughters absolutely love going to school at Goddard and are so happy when they are there. They often run down the hall to get to their class in the morning and have even asked me to let them stay and play longer when I've picked them up at times. That is a huge sign to me that they enjoy their time there and that the Goddard staff provides good care for them. I have recommended Goddard to everyone I know that is looking for a daycare option and know of at least one family that has taken their children to Goddard on our recommendation. Goddard is a wonderful school.

  • I love how much the teachers have helped my son make leaps and bonds in his speech. They are so attentive with each child In their room. The teachers go above and beyond with making sure you know each day what is going on and how your child is doin!! I would not send my son anywhere else.

  • The children are able to be challenged in education and learn so much! I also am very appreciative that any time there has been any concerns or requests pertaining to my child, his teacher is always responsive in helping! I really am pleased with the structure the teachers follow and how they are top notch at handling the attitudes and behaviors that 5 year olds possess! Very wonderful school!

    Pre-K Classroom

  • Our experience with Goddard has been amazing. Aside from the administrative staff being exceptionally great (always having the students best interest in mind, very flexible and open with communication), the teachers have made a huge impact on our daughter. Lilly is thriving at school and absolutely loves her teachers and class. She is excited every morning when we drop her and that is the best feeling in the world.

  • Our daughter moved to Goddard when my wife's job moved from Clayton to West County. We thought there might be a drop off because the previous day care was sponsored and overseen by a major national company. There was no drop off, in fact, there was a noticeable improvement.
