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.

  • It is evident how much the teachers to the staff care for the children. I know my daughter is safe and happy while she is at goddard which gives me such peace of mind while I am working.

    Toddler Classroom

  • All the teachers have been engaged, kind, and empathetic towards our children. The classroom schedule is well thought out. The owner makes a huge effort to know everyone and be very involved in the school on a daily basis. They host various outings and events that involve the parents. The front office is knowledgeable, friendly, and responsive. From top to bottom I have been very impressed and happy with this school.

    Preschool Classroom

  • From the programming to the teachers, the facility to the management, we continue to be impressed by the high quality. I still can't get over the fact that when we walk through the door, literally everyone knows our names and takes the time to say hi.

    Jane's Mother

    Pre-K Classroom

  • We are new to the Goddard School and have loved the experience so far. The staff and teachers are very friendly and provide great communication. The school is clean and secure which provides a very safe and enjoyable environment. Our son loves going to school here and we couldn't be happier!

    Brayden's Mother

    Preschool Classroom

  • The school provides excellent quality care. They are in close communication with us in terms of our 5 month old daughter’s needs and how she is doing. We feel fortunate to have found a facility where we can leave her throughout the day with confidence that she is happy and cared for. Seeing all the fun enriching activities she has exposure to is really a huge perk of this program.

    Ava's Mother

    Infant Classroom

  • Location is perfect and staff is awesome. They are open to hear feedback and responsive on the conversations. They take extra effort in making summer eventful and also include parents for some events like summer picnic, Valentine’s Day etc. Overall I love this place and highly recommend it

    Aayra'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

  • I love that the Goddard School feels like an extension of my family. I do not feel as though my children are just numbers to them, they know my kiddos, they know their likes, and dislikes, and honor their quirks. Academically, my children have such a strong foundation which is going to serve them greatly as they move on to traditional K-12 schooling.
