  • Amazing teachers! Small class size allows more one on one time for our children. The sense that everyone cares for our children as if they are their own. All the steps the staff has taken to ensure our children are completely safe even under these difficult circumstances.

    Infant Classroom

  • The staff and faculty in the infant room are top quality professionals with the biggest hearts of anyone I’ve ever met. They have loved my son as their own and he has excelled and learned so much from them. It’s says a lot about being this comfortable leaving your entire world with someone as comfortable as I am.

    Infant Classroom

  • No place is perfect in any parent's standard; however, I wholeheartedly say that the Goddard School Lake Ridge is different. Most teachers do care about the kids, it's not just their work ethics but their true care and love. That does show the difference. To me, they are the true heros. They make us go to work without worrying about our kids. I wish I had much money, I would give all the heros there big bonus!! Thank You.

We love the Goddard School!

    Bear & Ziggy's Father

  • The curriculum is excellent because it is similar to the montessori method; however, there is more structure. The teachers have experience beyond the certification level. As a result, they provide positive reinforcement to the children and provide parents with well-developed feedback.
