Norwood 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.

  • They have done a fabulous job getting my daughter ready for kindergarten! They have navigated the pandemic and restrictions as best as possible and I'm so pleased with the staff.

    Hannah's Mother

    Junior-K Classroom

  • Where to begin? The constant reassurance that our most prized possession is OK-with the TapPoles app; the open door policy as well as the welcoming staff; the Daily Reports - knowing that our child is constantly looked after and cared for (sometimes better than I would); the socialization that my child is getting amongst the students and the COUNTLESS activities that you provide; the clean environment; the community as a whole is what I want my child to know life is all about.

    Infant Classroom

  • I have been pleased with the professionalism & continued care and attention they provide to my daughter.

    Alexandra's Father

    Toddler Classroom

  • The teachers are always keeping the kids engaged. They add new activities while still keeping a fun educational routine. I've noticed how much my son has really opened up socially since he turned two. He is speaking in full sentences, singing along with songs, counting to 15, knows his alphabet, and is learning to playing well with others. Most importantly, he loves being there and I feel 100% sure that he is being loved and cared for at all times.

    Steven's Mother

    Toddler Classroom

  • We love all the teachers, they provide so much love, kindness and structure for our girls. The school is run extremely well organized and there’s great communication.

    Alexandra & Mackenzie & Michaela & Gabriella's Mother

    Junior-K Classroom

  • The care that is provided our daughter, the cleanliness, the safety, the care that is provided for parents (especially those of us who are first time parents).

    Keira's Mother

    Infant Classroom

  • As I have said in every single survey - there is no one we trust more to look after our children than Goddard School Norwood. My girls have been going since they are 4 months old. They are 5 and 3 now - both enrolled in the academic programs. We chose Goddard over public school this year for Kindergarten, best decision we made !

    Kaitlyn & Hailey's Mother

    Kindergarten Classroom

  • The Staff, Anthony is a hands on owner, great leadership team. I like that many of his teachers have been there for years and years. Also, I would like that that school provides a real curriculum with structure.

    Hannah's Father

    Preschool Classroom

  • Great, caring, staff. Management is heavily involved In day to day operations which helps keep everything running smoothly. They’ve handled COVID better than most, if not all, of the schools around here and have a solid protocol in place for their summer camp program.

    Oona & Adeline & Isadora's Father

    Summer Program

  • The Goddard staff is amazing! They are so caring and nurturing and you can tell that they truly care about the kids. From the infant room to the preschool, I have always been impressed by the activities that the teachers do with the children and how much they are learning!
