Mechanicsburg 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.

  • Teachers are hands on and caring. Staff are all easy to communicate with and I can tell the kids are in good hands.

    Infant Classroom

  • Both my daughters attended another daycare previously. Making the switch to the Goddard School was the best move for both of then. My oldest is in kindergarten and is excelling. Goddard set her up for success academically. My youngest started the Goddard school Fall 2022 and she has learned so much.

  • We love the Goddard school Mechanicsburg! Our kids continue to learn and grow so much! What our 5 year old has learned sometimes surprises us! School is fun for them and they look forward to it. They also have done a great job with their summer camp program: so many fun activities and field trips!

  • My child has learned and grown in positive ways since attending the Goddard School. The teachers and staff are a pleasure to interact with and always keep me informed on the daily events.

    Kindergarten Classroom

  • We love the toddler teachers! It is clear they love the kids and are also committed to carrying out Goddard curriculum. The teachers are also very communicative and friendly with parents - we love knowing our daughter is spending the day with someone who cares and where she will learn through different vehicles from free play to structured stem activities. We also love the photos of the day and daily recaps!
