Waxhaw 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.

  • Teachers are extremely hands on, very approachable if you have any questions and Cheri and the rest of the staff I believe are truly the best of the best. Couldn’t be happier sending our daughter to the school.

  • Everything! Our son has only been at The Goddard School for a short while but he is so calm and so happy there! Compared to our previous Preschool experiences, The Goddard School is a 10+! I like that the directors are always "present", I like that the staffing seems to be consistent with little turnover and that there is an overall sense of calm and happiness throughout the building.

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.
