              My family and I absolutely love the Goddard School! My girls are excited to get to school every day.
              My toddler is happy as soon as we walk into her classroom and she's greeted with snuggles from her teachers. Before I leave the room, she's already "reading" a book, doing an art project or just singing and dancing with her friends.
              I'm amazed by how much my 4 year old has learned from Goddard. I really think the pre-K classroom does a great job of prepping the kids for kindergarten. Each night, my daughter tells us about the new things she learned throughout the day.
              One of my girls' favorite things about Goddard is the amount of different/fun activities they do each month. This week there's an art gallery and a play in the pre-K room. Both of my girls love pajama days, Water Wednesdays in the summer and all of the other "event" days. These special days get them even more excited to go school.
              The teachers and staff at Goddard are great. It seems that the teachers know the names of all the kids, not just the ones in their specific classroom. My husband and I feel completely comfortable leaving our girls at Goddard every day. We know they'll learn a ton, while having a great time.

              My family and I couldn't be happier with Goddard as our daycare choice. I have 2 girls at the school, who both love it. \r\nThe staff and teachers are super friendly. Everyone knows the names of all the children, even the ones that aren't in their specific classrooms. \r\nMy oldest daughter is in one of the pre-K classes at Goddard. Every night we hear about all the great things she's learning. One day it might be the solar system and the next it's art. \r\nMy youngest is in the toddler classroom. She loves school so much that most days she doesn't even notice when I leave. She's already busy snuggling up her teachers, playing with her friends or going to work on an art project.\r\nThe Goddard staff really puts in a lot of effort to have special days throughout the month. Whether it?s pajama day, Water Wednesdays in the summer or something else, my girls are excited about these days the whole week leading up to it. \r\nThe best thing about Goddard is that my husband and I are 100% comfortable leaving our girls there. We have no doubts that they?ll be well taken care of, while they are learning and having fun.\r\n

              As parents of an infant, it is very important to us that each and every day... we feel like we are leaving our son at a place where he will be loved and receive hands on attention. We found this at Goddard School. The teachers are wonderful, and their passion for taking care of the babies truly shines through! We never worry about the care our son is going to receive each day - when pulling out of the parking lot each morning after dropping him off, we truly ""don't look back."" We know he will have a good day and receive lots of love and hugs, as well as a good start to his educational development. We would recommend Goddard School to all parents. It truly is a fabulous place!

              Our 3 1/2 year old daughter has been a student at Goddard School for 2 years, and we are very pleased with the level of care, the teachers, the facility & curriculum. She comes home everyday after school with stories of the things they learned, stories they have read and newly acquired skills. She really looks up the the teachers and models their behavior when she is at home - using the same terminology they use, etc. \n\nShe has learned a good deal of spanish and sign language and still mixes it with normal verbal conversation.\n\nThe owners and director are on site throughout the day - it makes it really easy to get questions answered or issues addressed. \n\nIt very much has a family feel to it - a willingness to be flexible, show up with an extra pair of snow pants if your child's are forgotten, give hugs when the day is done, etc.

Every night at the dinner table we review their daily activity sheet and they tell us all about their day. We particularly like that there isn??t too much turnover among the teachers; our younger child has often had the same teacher that her older sibling had previously, which creates good familiarity. We are impressed with the owners and staff and are glad that our family is a part of the Goddard School.

              My son, who's almost 2, has been going to the Goddard School in Plymouth for 4 months, and he loves it there. Prior to the Goddard School, he was in a daycare center where the teachers did not interact with the kids enough and mostly left them on their own. It was a sharp contrast at the Goddard School where every time I came into his classroom, the teachers were in the midst of doing something with the kids. The curriculum is great, even for the little kids. There has been some recent turnover amongst the teachers, but nothing out of the ordinary for a center.\r\nLiked: Disliked: \r\n

              We've had our 2.5 yr old daughter attend Goddard since she was 3 months old. We continue to be impressed with all aspects of Goddard in Plymouth. The owners and staff are extremely dedicated and truly care about each child and their families. By having the owners and education director on site, a sense of community is created and brings us peace of mine that our daughter is receiving the best care available. They've create an ideal environment for learning and growth and provide excellent communication back to parents. Our daughter loves going to school and loves her teachers. (We love the teachers too!) We look at the Goddard School as a community and we're proud to be members.

              We moved our kids to the Goddard School after our daycare was no longer meeting our expectations and we are SO happy we did! Our kids have been going there for the past year and we are continually impressed. Goddard is a school full of extremely nurturing and educated teachers that are doing everything they can to foster a safe and fun learning environment for the kids there. \nOur kids love going there everyday and there hasn't been a 'situation' yet! The staff communicates effectively, they do creative things, they are flexible with schedules (our kids go Part Time) and even better, they have VERY competitive rates!

              We love the Goddard School and can't say enough good things! Our kids (who are 5 and 3) have been going there for the past year. They have excellent care for babies all they way through Preschool and Pre-K. They do very creative and fun activities for the kids and all of the teachers are absolutely wonderful! Most (if not all) have some kind of a degree in early childhood education and you can tell :)
              Would highly recommend you check it out. Also, their rates are a lot more competitive than other 'chains' and it's a more personalized feel!
