Collierville 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.

  • Everyone knows you and your child as soon as you walk in the door and teachers love your child as if they’re one of thier own! My child has learn and grown so much - she’s far exceeded where other children her age are.

  • We love the Collierville Goddard School most because they are genuine and truly care about families. The Goddard School of Collierville is very bright & colorful, organized, super clean, professional & personal at the appropriate times, and hands on! I can not express how happy we are to be there. My 3 month almost 4 month old smiles from ear to ear every morning when I drop her off with her teacher, Mrs. Meg. We love our friends at the Goddard School.

  • The STEAM foundation, the attention to details and requests from parents and the actions taken, and most importantly the energy and enthusiasm that the kids show to go to school is what makes the parents comfortable in sending the kids to Goddard.

  • We love Goddard! It's going to set my daughter up for success for the rest of her life given the start Goddard Collierville has given her. Thanks for being so academically oriented. Thanks for all the free play. Thanks for all the special events. Thanks for all the efforts on disciplining. Thanks for the caring and loving environment. Thanks for being open on most days (helps busy working parents) :) . You are a great pre-school! You work very hard to keep it that way and thank you for that.

  • I like that children are taught Spanish and Mandarin. I am also highly impressed with how STEM curriculum is seamlessly integrated with regular preschool skills in the classroom. I have observed that my child's curiosity of the world and quest for knowledge has blossomed since being at Goddard.
