Hershey 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.

  • Excellent staff, low turnover, AMAZING Covid-19 protocols and safety record, good communication, great curriculum

    Roman & Jett's Father

    Pre-K Classroom

  • The Staff is all professional and very involved with our kid and family. We really enjoy the parent/teacher meetings that are still being conducted virtually during the continued COVID protocols. The fact that we not only get daily updates of his performance for the day, but we also get pictures throughout the day of what he and his classmates are participating in. That's the best part, that he is getting to have this interaction when we are at work, but we still get to see him having fun.

    Wyatt & Baby's Father

    Toddler Classroom

  • We sent both our children to Goddard for pre-school and our oldest was in kindergarten during the pandemic. While we have always felt the teachers and owners had our kids’ best interests at heart, it was even more evident once COVID happened. We felt very confident that we were sending them into a safe, secure environment where growth and learning could take place. They have always shown care and compassion for our family and we can’t recommend Goddard enough!

  • Best early childhood education place in Hershey. They give individual care for each kid and value each child like a gem. Way to go Goddard teachers and administration!!.

    Gabriella's Father

    Before/After School Program

  • We have been so impressed with the professionalism of the staff and the quality of the programming at Goddard. I've been truly shocked at the tremendous level of planning and preparation that occurs every day. As part of my elementary education degree, I observed 100+ hours in preschools. Goddard, by far, outmatches any preschool I've seen in terms of staff quality, preparation, planning, and implementation.

  • We love that they just dont watch your child, they teach something new everyday. We are amazed of some of the knowledge our daughter comes home with. Goddard is worth every penny

    Lana's Father

    Pre-K Classroom

  • The Goddard School in Hummelstown, PA is very well run. The owners are very hands-on, and the managerial staff does an excellent job of taking care of day-to-day operations. The facilities are always clean and in excellent condition. In the end, however, it all comes down to the teachers, and they're all caring professionals.

    Olivia & Liam's Mother

    Infant Classroom

  • More than "just daycare," Goddard strives to make each day full of fun learning opportunites. The structured daily activities and routines, including use of computers, has really helped my children thrive. I also love that they send photos and a daily report each day so we know exactly what our children are doing when we can't be with them.

    Addison & Andrew's Mother

    Toddler Classroom

  • We are very pleased and amazed by what our son had learned at The Goddard School. I feel he has an excellent foundation for his educational future. The owners are wonderful and very involved, they make us feel like family. The teachers are great as well and have good control over their classrooms and manage all the children very well.

    Max's Mother

    Pre-K Classroom

  • The time the teachers takes with all the kids to learn at their appropriate level is something you do not see in early childhood care today. This school has stood out as the best around. If it weren't for the goddard school my son wouldn't be at the level he is. My only regret is that I didn't find your school sooner!

    Caleb's Mother

    Pre-K Classroom

  • The teachers interact very well with the students and I can tell our daughter loves learning from her teachers. They are able to keep the children's attention and supervise the activities without being overly protective.

    Jenivieve's Father

    Toddler Classroom

  • We appreciate the course curriculum and daily email updates. The teachers a very caring and friendly. Dropping my son at daycare is often the worst part of my day but knowing that he is being cared for and stimulated by such a thoughtful and dedicated group, eases the pain in my heart.

    Edwyn's Father

    Infant Classroom

  • My kid does more at school that he would if he was at home with me. Art projects, reading, listening to music--it's all great. I'm so glad he can interact with other kids his age too. I've already recommend Goddard to everyone!

    Gabriel's Mother

    Infant Classroom

  • My child has learned so much this year when provided with a safe, nurturing environment to learn and grow. She loves going to school and sharing what she knows! I also feel good knowing that she is with individuals who truly care about her, her education, and development.

    Kaitlyn's Mother

    Kindergarten Classroom

  • The teachers are very receptive to all the students and have a personal touch that makes the kids feel welcome. We've had great teachers at other schools too, but nothing like what we've had at Goddard. Our son is learning new songs life skills like numbers, animals and people/occupations. He couldn't be happier at Goddard and neither can we!

    Liam's Mother

    Preschool Classroom

  • Goddard school has an excellent learning program and my kids have excelled. All of the teachers treat our children as if they were their own, very loving and nurturing.
