Vancouver (Salmon Creek) 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 like many things about Goddard, the curriculum, the level of interaction with each child. The fact that the teachers and owners know almost every child and parent by name. That there is a safe (secure) learning environment where I can leave my child and know that she is getting a positive and well rounded age appropriate curriculum filled with loads of play as well as education.

  • Teachers teachers teachers! All of the teachers that my daughter has had are great. They all demonstrate a true commitment to care and educate. To help grow her mind, her body, and her since of self. You can tell that they are truly invested in what they are doing to help shape our young children into respectful, thoughtful, and intelligent little citizens.

    Preschool Classroom

  • Staff know names of all the families and children. It's a very welcoming environment, with great communication to families, transparent. It's safe, many precautions are put in place to make that so. I appreciate the academic learning that takes place in both rooms my children are in. There's a balance of structured time followed by unstructured play time.
