    Isabelle's Mother

    Preschool Classroom

  • The team is mature and responsible. I can trust that they have my children’s best interest at heart. They take the time to ask questions and learn about their students. I appreciate that even though changes occur there is very little if any change to the flow of the classrooms. We have been impressed with the caring individuals they hire as teachers.

    Pre-K Classroom

  • The teachers are extremely caring and patient. It’s a safe and fun environment, and my daughter gets so excited to go to preschool.

    Sadie's Mother

    Preschool Classroom

  • We have experienced and toured so many preschools in our area. Hands down The Goddard school is the best. The best teachers who are always welcoming and loving, the best admin staff who are always kind and supportive...our kids WANT to be here...and that says it all. If given the choice we would choose this school every single time.

    George & Samuel & Sophia's Mother

    Pre-K Classroom

  • I like the blend of professionalism and care that they provide. The employees at Goddard understand that they must adhere strictly to the rules placed upon them for the safety of all, however they treat each kid with the same love that they would treat their own children, and I think that is unique to Goddard. The other schools we have seen have been caring about children, but the lack of professionalism and communication between the teachers / support staff and the parents has been alarming.

    Merritt's Father

    Infant Classroom

  • We absolutely loved everything about the Goddard School! The programming and staff were excellent and we always knew that our son was in a safe and nurturing environment. We highly recommend the Goddard School!

    DJ's Father
