Redmond Ridge 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.

  • Goddard has always been flexible and innovative but has definitely stepped up the game since the pandemic. They continuously problem solve, adapt and create in order to ensure that the children are experiencing the supportive learning environment that is so crucial during this age. The teachers are kind, warm, engaging and meet your children where they are while encouraging to take on new learning challenges.

    Axel's Mother

    Pre-K Classroom

  • The Goddard School is wonderful! I honestly think my daughter enjoys spending time at school more than she does being home. The staff is extremely informative of their curriculum, your child's development milestones, and safety standards. There is also a clear level of care for each child. You will not regret enrolling your child at the Goddard School.

    Scarlett's Mother

    Toddler Classroom

  • Our Kindergartener was over-prepared for K, which we attribute a lot to Goddard. He's far ahead of his peers in many areas. Also, during the current Pandemic, the safety measures and precautions make us feel confident in sending our toddler every day.

    Cole & Leia's Father

    Pre-K Classroom

  • Great, attentive and loving teachers. They have a wonderful clean environment. Most important of all, the owner - Shauna is fantastic. She is a thorough professional who pays a lot of attention to the school and is on top of everything. Cant recommend it enough.

    Viraj & Vedant's Father

    Toddler Classroom

  • First and foremost, I love how much my daughter LOVES going to school each morning. Just that eases my heart in being away from her each day. Communication between my husband and I and the teachers is open and constant. It feels like a partnership rather than just a place to drop off my daughter for the day.

    Charlotte's Mother

    Toddler Classroom

  • We Love the overall programme, it’s diversity and focus on not only STEM but arts and creativity. We love the dedicated personal commitment to our daughter, the daily reports with comments, we feel part of a great community. We especially love and appreciate that our daughter is nurtured and cared for.
