Leesburg 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 say enough about the Goddard School in Leesburg. Between my two sons, ages 7 and 4 we have been in every classroom in the school. The communication of the teachers throughout the school is fantastic, I always know how my child's day was and its delivered in a gentle kind manner. The School has prepared our sons for school! Our son was in their private Kindergarten and excelled in first grade.

  • The education and care my 2 boys receive far surpass my expectations. I am happy to be apart of The Goddard School of Leesburg!

    Tyler's Mother

    Junior-K Classroom

  • Everything. The director, assistant for, stay, etc after always pleasant and warm and the teachers are legitimately concerned about my son's well-being. There has never been a time that I had a "new mom" concern/question that went unaddressed. They are extremely flexible with ensuring the best thing is done for your child and that your needs are being met as well... Weekly (if not daily) my son surprises me with what he knows/has learned in school and I love that.

    Pre-K Classroom

  • I couldn’t be happier with the care my daughter Kamryn gets from Ms.Tyann and Ms. Julia, they are the such an amazing team and show all the kids so much love. They allow them to explore all around the room and outside. I love all the science that they explore while outside. Kamryn has learned so much from this exceptional team.

    Alexis & Kamryn's Mother

    Toddler Classroom

  • The staff is friendly, the building is secure, my child is learning and having fun all day every day, and we get pictures and videos daily. The staff keep the children engaged in activities throughout the day and there’s a daily report at the end of every day. I like that there are special treats such as water Wednesday and pizza Friday. My child thought the end of summer party was the best party she’s ever been to. She has fun, is learning, and is happy.
