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.

I love the staff! Everyone is so friendly, competent, and caring. Denise totally knocked it out of the park this year with everything around COVID. Her communication is on point and always appreciated. I’m always amazed when our daughter comes home with new phrases and spanish vocab. We are thankful everyday for the care you provide.

Preschool 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.

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!!!

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
