Sparta 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 recommend this school to others! It's clean and welcoming atmosphere. He's 14 months and he's already doing so many activities and even comes home doing sign language! With the Tadpoles app I can see what he does on a daily basis, which is a huge help for a working mother :)

  • The staff is amazing! You know it is an amazing school when your 3yr old wakes up every morning and asks if he is going to Goddard School today. Miss Sara and Miss Alissa are AMAZING! Terri (who runs the school) is so communicative and will to help whenever needed! Mr Jim he is just a great person all around! I am proud to be part of the Goddard Sparta family!
