              HORRIBLE experience. The teachers are "hit or miss". Some are experienced and patient, others are overwhelmed and frustrated with the children during the day. I pulled my daughter out and she now attends an AMAZING school nearby. She adores her new school, even asking to go on the weekends. At Goddard, she would cry every single morning. I wouldn't trust Goddard school with my child's education, safety or well being. Her "Children's bill of rights" as Goddard calls it, was completely over ignored. When we pulled our daughter out 3 weeks ago, the director was not in. She has still not contacted us, despite repeated attempts to call her to discuss the issues we had. I guess she doesn't care what the problems are within her school. More confirmation to me that we made the right decision for our child.

              I can't say enough about how much good this school has done for my son! The directors themselves are wonderful with children and clearly have taken the time to know each one on an individual basis. The school is super accommodating for working parents and can boast a very reasonable tuition as compared to others. My little boy has made wonderful friends and is looked after with much love and care by a super staff.

              Parents, don't hesitate to put your trust in the Goddard School.

              Excellent play school for kids, Great, considerate and caring staff that takes good care of children while teaching them about a variety of topics. They have a pretty extensive curriculum and the children enjoy spending time here. They also help with potty training of the kids. So its really a boon for couples with both parents working.
