    Pre-K Classroom

  • The Goddard School is fantastic! All of the staff we've dealt with have been wonderful. They answer any questions we may have and don't hesitate to elaborate if we have additional questions. The teachers are tremendous! They are very attentive and care about the parents desires for feeding, naps, etc. during the day while our child is at daycare.

  • Great staff, family-oriented, education-focused. Our child loves going there. We have peace of mind that he is well taken care of and that our specific childcare requests are always honored.

    Wesley's Father

    Infant Classroom

  • I love the warm atmosphere when you walk in the building. Owners/ management always takes time to speak with you when you have questions. The teachers also are very kind and are always willing to give updates on how your child is doing.

    Raymond's Father

    Preschool Classroom

  • The staff is so nice, and everything is geared towards education. I love the transparency and the small class sizes. My daughter talks about Miss Jenna and Miss Kaylyn - they made her transition so much easier by being kind and helpful. I want to make sure they get a special shout out for being awesome!

    Quinn's Mother

    Toddler Classroom

  • The teachers are amazing, as well as the directors and staff. My daughter learns so much and genuinely looks forward to going to school every day. I was nervous about leaving my child with other people when I returned to work over a year ago, and I couldn’t be happier with my decision. The teachers and staff make me feel so comfortable and safe and I know they have my daughters best interest at heart.

    Ruthie & Clarke 's Mother
