School Reviews

I simply cannot say enough about the incredible environment that my child has experienced while attending The Goddard School in Westlake Ohio. She thrived in the nurturing and very learning oriented atmosphere that the faculty foster every single day at the school. The teachers are caring, professional and provide an overall lesson plan that encourages the children to think critically on their own, while teaching them the foundation of social interaction and to follow directions when given. The entire staff makes the student (and parents) feel welcome and that they are a part of a very special family. Kathleen (the owner and operator) is a joy and shows enthusiasm everyday towards learning and the well being of the children. We could not be happier with our choice to send our daughter this fantastic school and we are very confident that the experience will go a long way to reinforcing the importance of learning and interaction as she grows. The fact that at 4 she was learning Spanish, math and vocabulary is amazing. She has been a student there since she turned 3 and loves every minute of it- Thank you Goddard for an amazing head start to a great future! The new gym is over the top - love it- congratulations.
