Hendersonville 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.

  • We couldn't be more pleased with Goddard's methods - we feel our son is advancing quickly and we are amazed each week by things he says and what he has learned. Although he had 2-3 more years at Goddard, we have no doubt he will be more than ready for kindergarten, and we have loved all of his teachers so far. It is such a comfort to know that your child is being loved and cared for while you are at work all day. Thank you for all you do!

  • From an early age and in each classroom, your teachers focus on developing skills in each child that will help them to develop as a individual and prepare them for school and life!! Very exciting. Also, love the feature of being able to receive pictures of the kids throughout the day and receive their daily reports electronically. Your staff is wonderful. Thank you for yours and your staff's love and support for our children. The Friels

    Junior-K Classroom

  • the tadpole system integration has been awesome -- love the reports and the photos via email. both our boys are pushed educationally and, from feedback i get from them each day, a lot of what is being conveyed is sticking. i really like the notebook system and daily info we receive from the jr kindergarten class.

    Jaxen & Ryder's Father

    Preschool Classroom

  • I'm delighted with the way the teachers interact with the students and have their full attention. I also like the consistency of the staff. I haven't seen any turnover since we've been here. Children need consistency and they form a bond with their teachers that makes them feel secure

    Olivia & Brooke's Legal Guardian

    Preschool Classroom

  • I like that the lesson plans are tailored to meet the needs of each individual child and that the teachers get to make the plans themselves. I don't like the cookie cutter lesson plans where everyone is doing the same thing time after time. I also love the 21st Century Learning and hands on activities.

    Hannah Joy's Mother

    Junior-K Classroom

  • I love the fact that the teachers communicate with me to let me know what my child struggles with along with what he excels at. The staff is always welcoming and so helpful. My son loves going to school and learning new things with his class. It has been an all around enjoyable experience!
