    Ayvah & Ethan's Mother

    Preschool Classroom

  • I'm impressed with Reena's ability to communicate. Her vocabulary is continually increasing and I frequently recognize words, phrases, or new signs that she is learning at school. I also believe her teachers do a great job interacting with her and allowing her to develop her own unique personality. Above all, the most important thing is that most days Reena seems genuinely excited to go to school in the morning and is happy when she's picked up in the afternoon.

  • As a busy parent I feel like I'm still very involved with my daughter's day by reviewing the detailed reports. Getting pictures of her with her friends and knowing she's enjoying herself, gives me comfort. Julia has grown so much within the year she's been at Goddard. We're happy to have her there.

He is learning so much and I see little changes every week in how he expresses himself. He talks about school all the time, its wonderful.
