Friendswood 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.

  • The low ratio of students to teacher has been great for us. Our little one cried every day at drop off at the prior daycare and she's much happier and is happy at drop offs now at Goddard. We've also seen an improvement of her saying please and thank you more often since we started at Goddard.

    Colin's Mother

  • The Goddard school in Friendswood is awesome! They have a staff that cares, is very communicative, and overall friendly and helpful. The curriculum has grown out daughter’s communication and social skills exponentially. Our child doesn’t have a good day everyday, but the team at the school around her helps her through the day and she always wants to go back!

    Toddler Classroom

  • Mrs. Nershana and her staff have been excellent to work with. They have brought 3 kids that were way behind in academics and behaviorally to kids nobody can recognize! They teach kids not only how to learn but help parents instill and reinforce listening, manners, empathy, and respect for adults and kids alike.

  • The moment we made the switch to The Goddard School from Kiddie Academy, we knew it was the best decision we ever made! Our son loves the teachers and staff here and has made so many friends. Mrs. Nershana is a great communicator and resource, and she even attempted to help us get funding from the military through Childcare Aware. We love The Goddard School and would absolutely recommend this facility to anyone looking for a trustworthy, structured school setting for their child!
