Durham-TestingName 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 single person on staff is caring and friendly. I think that my child is learning so much, emotionally, socially, and educationally, while having fun - its a true enrichment.
