Avon 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.

  • Goddard - Avon is wonderful! The facility is nice but more importantly, the teachers are so kind, caring and patient. We could not be happier with our son's experience!
