Raleigh (Creedmoor Road) 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 overall experience at Goddard has been great from the start. From infants all the way up to preschool our child has learned so much and we have seen so much growth! It feels good to know we are not just leaving her at "daycare," but instead in a learning environment with great teachers and staff that are invested in our child and us as parents! Thank you Goddard for all you do each and everyday!

  • I think that it’s a very nurturing environment that promotes learning through creativity and play. I think that it also supports an environment where children can develop a sense of independence in a warm and caring environment at their own pace. I’ve been really happy to see how much my son has matured in regards to social situations. He is so much more confident.
