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.

  • - Administration and teachers have always been professional and kind to our family - Excellent communication via the Goddard App throughout the day. - Many opportunities for parents to be involved though the year (holiday parties, birthdays, book sales, etc)

  • The Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. I can drop off my children without any worry that they will be safe and taken care of.

    Emmie & Allie 's Mother

    Infant Classroom

  • For both of my children, I feel that they are getting a very well rounded education. My three year old has had a visible progression in her letter recognition in a month at Goddard and her math and counting continue to progress. The weekly focus and daily notes have made it very easy to incorporate what the kids are learning at school into our daily routine.

    Alice & Keegan's Mother

    Preschool Classroom

  • Everett's teachers go above and beyond to make him feel comfortable while in the classroom. He has learned so much since he started back in April 2022. Of course, the Administers of the school do a wonderful job and go above and beyond every day, even Mr. John- the owner.

    Mackenzie & Everett's Mother

    Infant Classroom

  • I had the pleasure of enrolling my child at the Godard School, and I couldn't be happier with the experience. The teachers at the Godard School are not only warm and welcoming but also incredibly helpful. They create a nurturing environment where my child feels comfortable and supported. It's evident that they genuinely care about the well-being and development of every child. I'm grateful for the wonderful teachers who make the Godard School such a fantastic place for early childhood education.

  • The best decision we have made was to get our daughter enrolled at the Goddard school. We love the teachers and have seen tremendous growth in our daughter - both academically and personally. We couldn’t have asked for anything more. The owners Mandy and John cash and the front office people are always very helpful and understanding while being courteous. We love the Goddard school :)
