Manhattan (93rd and Broadway) 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 like the approach to learning, "learning for fun, learning for life" motto. I also like the fact that my son has developed life skills through interactions with his classmates and teachers. I also like the community service outreach that Goddard takes part in. Those are values we want to instill in our son and thank Goddard for their involvement in such activities.

We continue to appreciate that many of your policies (such as holiday closings, possibility to add extra days on occasion, etc.) are created with an eye toward what the parents of young children actually need in our day-to-day lives.

Thomas & Nicholas's Father

Your curriculum is fabulous! My son is writing his letters and numbers beautifully. He is able to write his name as well. I love that what the children learn during the day covers a wide variety of skills. He is having fun, his teachers are so loving and he has structure to his day.

James's Mother

In our first week you have made us feel very comfortable with the transition. We appreciate the pictures throughout the day and the daily reports in the tadpole app. It really helps us get through the day. The teachers are wonderful and we can see our daughter warming up each day.

Everything! Since transferring to Goddard, our son Declan has made great strides. He is napping better because of the group napping schedule and really enjoys all the daily activities such as going for walks, going to the gym and the Wednesday sprinkler sessions. He uses to spend all day in one room. He is also eating a greater variety of foods because of the snack program.

Declan's Mother

Toddler Classroom

A very good mixture of play and learning with no discernable boundaries between the two. A clear pedagogical approach and plan that doesn't sacrifice fun. Our kids love to go to school and I am sure that Goddard is providing a good headstart for them and to thinking of school as a fun place to be.

Nathan & Louise's Father

I absolutely love the Goddard school. The principal, educational director and the teachers are outstanding. As an educator myself, I value the individual attention my daughter receives, the daily updates and personalized feedback. The lines of communication are always open and the staff is always available to answer questions and address concerns.
