What our parents say

Top Notch Learning!

Truly a top notch learning academy! Dovie, the director, is a ray of sunlight. Everyone is so accommodating and helpful. I enjoy the photos and notifications of my little one on the Tadpole app!

- Emma and Will's Mother (Pre-K Classroom)

Patience, Dedication, and Kindness!

I can’t say enough great things about what the teachers and staff have done for our little guy! He has just really taken off since being there! The teachers patience, dedication and kindness definitely show! He started at Goddard only saying a few words here and there and is now naming shapes, colors, and animals, and counting in English and Spanish! He also walks around saying “I love you” it makes me happy and gives me so much peace of mind to see him so excited every morning to go to school!

- Carter's Mother (Toddler Classroom)

Highly Recommend!

My daughter loves her new school. She is learning so many new things and is super happy to share and show me what she has learned and/or completed that day. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the “parent’s night out” and so did our daughter and son. We also really enjoyed the Trunk or Treat. Before leaving for the night she had to visit with her new friends and of course, pass out hugs to her teachers! Thank you! We really enjoyed the evening! I highly recommend Goddard School.

Boys loved camp, thanks for a wonderful summer! Love the flexibility (part-time or full time options), the play-based preschool curriculum, and friendliness of the staff. Thanks, Goddard!
