Reno (Somersett) 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.

  • The education my daughter gets, I can see the difference. She loves it there and I never feel guilty having her there all day.

  • The staff is friendly and you can tell it genuine, the school is run very well , the teachers are consistent and not a high turnover (which I know is hard to achieve), my kiddo is happy and learning and engaged!

    Levin's Mother

    Toddler Classroom

  • The Goddard school constantly demonstrates their commitment to our children through curriculum, added enrichment, well thought out events, and daily interactions with the children and families. Both my kids have loved the Goddard school from day one and we have referred multiple families here as well. My kids are happy, entertained, educated, and nurtured. My son loves his friends and teachers and talks about them all the time.

    Teagan & Levi's Mother

    Toddler Classroom

  • This school is absolutely fantastic! I am fortunate enough to be employed by Goddard, but the progression of my child’s development in the small amount of time she’s attended is nothing short of amazing. Her teachers are qualified and genuinely care about her, which is the most important thing to me. I’m very thankful for Goddard and I am so happy we decided to come here.

    Zorica's Mother

    Toddler Classroom

  • We couldn't be happier with our Goddard School. Our boys have been attending in some combination for almost 6 years now. Denise has done an exceptional job of maintaining the highest quality employees, even during these unprecedented times. We can't imagine having our boys anywhere else.

    Joseph (Joey) & Thomas (Tommy)'s Father

    Junior-K Classroom

  • Lucas loves his teachers and the activities that they complete with him. We feel so lucky that he goes to such a caring school with so many wonderful people in it. The hot lunches and school snacks have been a blessing for us too.

    Lucas's Father

  • Everyone who is employed here appears to love what they do and speaks with the children lovingly and respectfully. I appreciate that what the children are learning is a unique curriculum built on best practices for social, emotional and academic needs.

    River's Mother

    Toddler Classroom

  • I love the management team and the fact the owner is Often onsite and sets the bar high for all of her staff.

    Fletcher's Mother

    Pre-K Classroom

  • We love the teachers and staff. Goddard is a very loving and academic environment. The owner has done a great job during the pandemic to help us feel safe with new drop off/pickup procedures and open communication. We love the daily Tadpole updates and photos. The curriculum is just what we were looking for and our oldest was well prepared for kindergarten. We highly recommend Goddard.

    Remco & Katja's Mother

    Pre-K Classroom

  • Just amazing—in light of everything that has gone on in the 2020 school year Goddard Reno has remained professional, organized, and far ahead of any other school or child care center in our area. Absolutely impressive!!!

    Carly & Kennedy's Father

    Pre-K Classroom

  • The staff is warm and kind. The daily reports on what they are up too and pictures of my child are something I look forward to. The safety of my child emotionally and physically is a high priority at the school. The adjustments they have made with covid are impressive and in some ways helpful for drop off and pickups
