The development we have seen in our daughter has been amazing! From the time she started at 8 months to today has been leaps and bounds. Everyday our daughter is happy to be dropped off at school and smiles from ear to ear at pick up. It is really wonderful to know our daughter is in a safe and nurturing place.
I love the positive energy, the personal touch, the transparency. My daughter is happy there, learning and thriving. It's a great community of like-minded people You have been very accommodating, flexible to our family. Specifically I love the daily report sheets.
The teachers are incredible. They are attentive, creative, and so devoted to their job. My son has been at the school for over a year now and we are so impressed with his development due to what he’s learned there. He’s only 18 months and the focus they put on creative play and learning is unlike any daycare program I’ve heard of.
The teachers are wonderful and my child has been learning a lot...from math to sign language to being more creative. We love the activities that are offered like piano and chess which he has been loving. It’s a safe, clean and bright facility. We always feel comfortable when Zachary is there.
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.
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.

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.
The teachers and classroom activities are great! Our son feels true affection for his teachers, and comes home happy each day.

We are so pleased with the teachers at The Goddard School. Miss Tessa and Miss Evelyn are so wonderful with our son. We love the video updates and we are so appreciative of the care they give to him.
We love Ada's teachers. They take such good care of her, the curriculum seems great and she is so happy when she comes home every day.
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.

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.
my son went to Goddard for three yrs and got into an excellent K-8 program, the school at Columbia University. Ms. Amanda is excellent
We love how attentive and caring the teachers are in the Bryant Park classroom and Madison Park classroom. We also love Justin and Jenna and the care they put into the details of knowing every child. We also love the enrichment and hands/ on learning that our child gets from the curriculum. Leaving our child at Goddard for school, we feel comforted knowing she’s learning and being taken care of. Thanks!
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.
They have been great getting Charlotte adjusted to a new environment. The teacher is so communicative. The place feels so warm and inviting. We are just so happy with our decision and would recommend it to anyone.
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.

Warm, friendly and professional staff. Place always clean and tidy. Owner Bill is very accommodating and compassionate. Director Ms. Sandra is a very warm, approachable and always ready to help with a “smile” We feel safe sending our child to The Goddard School.
The TRUE diversity of the student population, the daily progress reports (great communication tool), open and regular communication between director/owner and families, variety of activities/programs offered
I am very pleased with the organized, innovative curriculum at Goddard, as well as the creative activities you provide the children. The teachers are top notch, and foster an educational, disciplined, yet still very nurturing, environment. My daughter is excited to come to school every day!
Teaching philosophy and planned activities (especially music-related); Transparency regarding diet, activities, napping routines, as well as changes to staff. Daily reports are very useful and informative.
Very responsive to requests, I feel like the management takes every effort to be responsive to concerns, and communicate/explain decisions and policies. We have been very happy with Goddard. Our son Eero has been happy there and we feel he has prospered in the environment, especially socially which was the outcome we were after.
An owner who is always present, caring teachers, and great atmosphere. The staff seems happy and enthusiastic. The directors are always approachable and listen. Bill, the owner, is just so dedicated and hands-on. It's really terrific.
Jason & Alex's Mother
Miss Sandra is amazing - professional, kind and very knowledgeable. She is the reason we were so interested in Goddard.
The Goddard School has been a wonderful place for our son. He has grown so much in each of his classrooms. His teachers have been wonderful and so engaging. We are very happy with the education he is receiving at Goddard.
Children are being exposed to the language of learning. Every experience is one to learn from and teachers are using the classroom, environment and situations as learning experiences.
