Lynnhaven 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.

  • Our child loves Goddard. The teachers are incredible. She’s learning so much this year and is so happy there!

    James's Mother

  • The Goddard school on the Blvd is amazing! I know my son is in safe and caring hands each day, and truly excels most when with his friends and teachers in a classroom environment. His milestones are met and exceeded due to the care and attention each teacher provides on a daily basis and we are extremely grateful to know our son is in such great hands!!

    Caitlin's Mother

    Preschool Classroom

  • Caring and passionate teachers who design curriculum tailored to students which instill a love of learning AND play. Create good habits through behavior incentive programs and school “designated chore/responsibility.” And safety is their primary concern. It is a blessing to have our child here.

    Junior-K Classroom

  • I can tell they live and care about our kids! My son hasn’t been there for 2 years and they still greet him happily (and by name) when he comes in with me to get our little one. My daughter has been there for about a year now, she recently got new shoes…when 5 adults make comment that a one year old is wearing new shoes, you know they love and are paying attention to your kids! ??
