Cary (Lochmere) 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 curriculum, teachers, and staff have all. Even wonderful so far! Our son is happy to go to school every day and is learning so much.

    Kennedy's Mother

    Infant Classroom

  • We have been parents of children at the Goddard school for over 3 years now, and now have two children there. We have watched both of our children thrive there under the love and attention of their teachers, and we are constantly amazed by the things that they share with us that they learned at school.

    Ethan & Abigail's Mother

    Pre-K Classroom

  • Our family loves The Goddard School. Our daughter has been so joyful each day to go to “class” to she her friends, play and learn. She is always happy and clearly well cared for when we pick her up at the end of a busy day. The teachers, owners and directors are caring, loving and kind to not only our daughter but to us. Our daughter has and continues to learn so much. Knowing she is in good hands makes it a little easier to be away from her during the day. ??

    Jai James's Mother

    Toddler Classroom

  • The Goddard School is clean, responsive, and caring. I always feel like my kid is safe there.

    Hunter Daniel & Ava's Father

    Preschool Classroom

  • My child's teachers. Goddard's facilities. The diligence with which they've navigated COVID with everyone's health in mind. The diversity of the learning agenda. Daily (or almost daily) pictures via the Tadpoles app. Knowing our child is learning and developing 1000x better than if she stayed at home full-time with me or my spouse.

    Lillian Adeline's Father

    Toddler Classroom

  • We like how professional and warm the staff is. I can’t believe how much our child is learning!

    Nicolina's Mother

    Preschool Classroom

  • From our initial tour to our daughters first day, the entire staff at the Goddard has always made us feel at home! Our emails and phone calls are always answered in a timely manner and we have never felt rushed. Each family is treated with sure care and it shows!

    Brylee's Mother

    Preschool Classroom

  • Our girls are very happy at their new school and seem to be thriving in the environment.

    Addison & Collins Leigh's Mother

    Preschool Classroom

  • We love the Goddard School! We've been very happy with the teachers and staff so far, and our son seems to really like it there. We really appreciate everyone's thoughtfulness and genuine interest in our son, his well-being, and the overall school experience.

    Kiran's Mother

    Toddler Classroom

  • We LOVE the Goddard school. Our child is extremely happy every single day. We love the communication we get from the teachers and the lessons they plan. Our child is actively playing and also learning. We are so impressed with the teachers - they are the best! Our only suggestion would be to change some of the snack menu options to healthier choices (for example, not serving juice).

    James Samuel's Mother

    Toddler Classroom

  • It has an amazing atmosphere, and everyday Declan comes home happy and excited!

    Declan & Grace Louise's Father

    Preschool Classroom

  • Staff and owners are great! The curriculum is also impressive. I also like that everyday has outside play time for physical activity

    Jillian & Sarah & Matthew's Mother

    Preschool Classroom

  • The teachers and the management both care for the kids. They are constantly in touch with the parents and keep them up to date with their child’s activities and progress. A lot of day cares have cameras in their facility for the parents to monitor their kids. But I like that they don’t have cameras.

    Amaya's Father

    Toddler Classroom

  • The faculty is so warm and attentive. My son throughly enjoys going there each day. I am beyond appreciative to everyone there for taking such good care of my son!

    Dominic's Mother

    Toddler Classroom

  • Everything! My daughter knows everyone on staff’s names, and everyone is so friendly and caring. I love the parent teacher conferences. Just hearing from the teacher, you can tell how much she truly cares about each child and giving them the best learning opportunity possible. My daughter loves going to school and learns so much at Goddard!

    Shay Marie's Mother

    Toddler Classroom

  • Friendly staff, wonderful teacher who connects with my child, attentive to parent needs, wide range of activities and learning tools, clean, and best of all my child enjoys his days there and I know he is safe while I work.

The North Carolina Division of Child Development (DCD) began issuing star rated licenses to all eligible childcare centers. Facilities can receive one to five stars. A rating of one star means that a childcare program meets North Carolina’s minimum licensing standards for childcare. Programs that choose to voluntarily meet higher standards can apply for a two to five star license. The star rating scores in two quality components - Staff Education and Program Standards.
