Cincinnati 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.

  • Both of my children have been 110% prepared for kindergarten. But they don't even know it... it's all been in a playful, exploratory way with hugs & rewards.

    Owen & Norah's Mother

    Pre-K Classroom

  • The teachers truly care about our children. Even teachers that my daughter has never had know her name and interact with her like they have known her since birth, so she always feels like she is at home there.

    Alexa & Jaxson's Mother

    Infant Classroom

  • I am certain that both my daughter and my son have received the most incredible gift of early education from Goddard. For them and for my husband and myself, our Goddard is a second home. The people there have hugged, helped, taught, cared for and encouraged my children throughout the years and really made an impression on their lives. We are all lucky.

    Diegan & Adelaide's Mother

    Preschool Classroom

  • The variety of activities the children participate in is excellent! The introduction of sign language and Spanish is great at this young age. Our son's teachers are so friendly and warm, it's so refreshing!!

    Oliver's Mother

    Preschool Classroom

  • It seems very education-focused, rather than simply daycare. The learning through play approach has been wonderful for my child.

    Reagan's Mother

    Toddler Classroom

  • I like the people on staff at Goddard. The teachers make the biggest difference in our experience. My daughter spends so much of her week with them, it means everything to me that she likes them, respects them, learns from them, and they genuinely care for her.
