Good curriculum plus extras like sign language. Spanish, Mandarin and yoga. Good teachers especially Miss Nika in Tigers and Miss Roxanna and Miss Rachana in Elephants. Kids have a good balance of learning and playing.
Like: 1) Advanced learning within each class. 2) S.T.E.A.M 3) Children receives individual attention 4) Daily Report of what the children are learning 5) Tadpole 6) Administration and teacher support and flexibility - personal, financial, etc.

The staff is attentive and nourturing to my son. Communication is excellent. Events and activities that enable you to socialize with other parents.
I love how committed to education Goddard is. Both my children are learning so much, thanks to the teachers and staff.
Brady & Luke's Mother
Teachers are always ready to help with a smiley face! Director is very welcoming and always ready to help out!
I love the way kids are transitioned and more importantly introduced to various little things. It increases their curiosity and also their attention span. I have seen my child learn a lot of new things are loosing fear of new.
Goddard offers a good blend of academia and other important skills required for childhood development
Sahana & Rahul's Father
I see the kids grow and learn every day. They are excited about going to school, and the teachers obviously care about them.

Clean, email updates, safe environment
Before/After School Program
Both Ms. Maria in the Giraffes class are outstanding in providing excellent instruction, guidance, and assistance to out eldest child, Ibrahim, with writing and in speaking in complete sentences. The homework packets are great at reinforcing concepts that will help him suceed in Kindergarten. They are the best teachers we have met so far.
Ibrahim & Ahmad's Mother
So far the teachers have been great with my son giving him the appropriate level of affection and discipline. Also the school provides a great variety of learning activities and keeps his mind stimulated and challenged.
This is the only place that is stimulating my infant according to actual developmental milestones based on research! I didn't want a babysitter for him. I wanted someone who would see that he has learning to do and maximize his potential. Goddard at GWU is doing that!
I like the focused approach of the teacher.Daily class assignment a to keep the children engaged are very helpful.I highly recommend this school
There seems to be a great balance of weaving the curriculum throughout appropriate amounts of free play, more structured play time like centers, and the everyday routines of the classroom.
The program, the evaluation test, and the teachers, extra curricular (chess)
Alexander & Brandon's Mother
Great, well experienced teachers. Professional directors. Bright, welcoming interior. Low turnover. Great educational program (mandarin, smart boards, site words, etc) but also lots of fun for the kids (sports, art, yoga, field trips, etc)
Connor & Edward's Mother
My child is very new to this school. For younger children, I appreciate the age-appropriate use of play as a means to educate. I like the fact that this is more than a day care facility, but an actual school that aims to have my almost-3-year-old child prepared for school. I especially like the idea that there is an emphasis on academic readiness and that we will have some idea about areas of strength and weakness to guide us once she is ready for school
