Derry 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.

  • I love the tadpoles app and daily report on our child. I love her teachers, they are very involved and friendly!

    Benjamin & Henry's Father

    Pre-K Classroom

  • Both my children have had FUN learning at The Goddard School. They have received a solid foundation in pre-reading skills from the Goddard teachers and when my oldest child entered Derry's public kindergarten she easily began reading without struggles and frustration! We appreciate the "classroom feel" versus a "daycare feel" to the school to help prepare our kids for elementary school while still being a fun, supportive, and loving environment.

    Emerson's Mother

    Pre-K Classroom

  • I love that the curriculum follows themes for a period of time long enough for children to really develop interest and knowledge in the subject. I also like that there are several different ways for them to explore each theme which allows for audio, visual and kinesthetic learning.

    Emilia & Benjamin's Mother

    Toddler Classroom

  • I love everything about it!!! The friendly staff,the clean and and safe environment you provide for my daughter,the program itself is wonderful!!! I would recommend this school in a heartbeat.

    Isabella's Mother

    Pre-K Classroom

  • I like that you make learning fun. I also like that you detail the skills built upon in the daily. For example, from someone not with an education background, I see paint on paper and think "Great...that looks pretty!" Then, when I read the daily, I am able to understand that the kids mixed 2 colors to make a third color and worked on holding a paint brush.

    Kathleen & William's Mother

    Toddler Classroom

  • I like that you provide a variety of enriching activities for my child. I like that you go above and beyond to care for him and work with me as far as his behavior issues go. You seem to care so much, and it warms my heart. I would reccmmend your school to anyone.
