School Reviews

  • Recommended February 09, 2014 - My child is very new to this school. For younger children, I appreciate the age-appropriate use of play as a means to educate. I like the fact that this is more than a day care facility, but an actual school that aims to have my almost-3-year-old child prepared for grade school. I especially like the idea that there is an emphasis on academic readiness and that we will have some idea about areas of strength and weakness to guide us once she is ready for school. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended January 24, 2014 - I interviewed over 20 daycares, but Goddard is the best. The teachers are caring and patient. The majority of teachers have a degree. They are constantly reading books, preparing art projects, teaching baby sign language, and encouraging the use of manners. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended July 22, 2013 - The well rounded, play based approach encourages learning. The teachers and staff are wonderful educators and caring people. - Posted by Parent
