The love, knowledge, comfort, and support she receives from all of her teachers and administrators is unparalleled. Goddard treats your child like they are their own. It’s truly a special place.

    Preschool Classroom

  • The Goddard School in WLB has a hometown feel as they make you feel welcome from the minute you walk in. The teachers and staff are beyond friendly and are attentive to your child’s needs. The teachers truly care for your child. I like the socialization and interaction amongst the children, even as young as in the infant room. I swear my 6 month old began “talking” (babbling) more after 3 weeks with the Goddard School. If I can’t be home with her, I’m glad to have the Goddard School.
