McKinney (University Drive) 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.

  • I can't recommend Goddard enough. The front desk staff and Robin always greet with a smile and make us feel like home. Our kids are obsessed with their teachers and curriculum. Their growth since we moved to Goddard is easily noticed.
