Concord Township 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.

  • My daughter is thriving in the preschool program at Goddard School. The staff and teachers are wonderful to work with, and they really take the time to know and meet my child's individual needs. She is understood, challenged, and cannot wait to go to school every day!

    June & Lucy's Mother

    Preschool Classroom

  • We had a great first week. We loved receiving the updates from Miss Robin and getting to see pictures of him in his new environment. We are all adjusting well to our new routine and are thankful our baby is happy and well taken care of.

    Theodore's Mother

    Infant Classroom

  • We love the detailed daily notes at the end of each day! It helps us ask questions about school and build conversation at the dinner table. We started at Goddard during the pandemic and feel that Goddard has taken measures to safely provide care while also allowing little learners to explore and play. Thank you for all the hard work and care you offer!

  • I can’t say enough about the leadership and staff. They are amazing. My children look forward to going to school everyday. They are so excited to come home and tell us what they learned or did for the day. I would recommend this school to everyone.

  • I love that I asked my daughter if she gave her first day at school one thumb up or two and she gave it 100!! For a kid that has never been in a school setting, I’d say that’s pretty telling! You guys are the best...especially Pre-K! ??
