              I send all three of my children to this school and would never consider any other daycare. After looking at daycare centers in Rochester, Rochester Hills, and Troy we could not find anything suitable for our kids until we went to Goddard in Lake Orion. The teachers are wonderful, the director, Jean is great and Kellie the owner is wonderful to work with, everyone is treated like family. Do not look any further, this is the only place to send your children. My three year old loves to "go to school" she is exceeding in all her skills, and loves the Yoga she is learning and my twin infants receive exceptional care in the infant room. There is a lot to be said about the way a business is run and you can tell that Kellie loves her job, cares about her business and her employees as well as the families and children that attend her school.

              Goddard is a fantastic place for children. We visited every single day care facility in the Lake Orion area when moving into the area and Goddard is by far heads and shoulders above all of the rest. It is immaculately clean, the teachers and staff and extremely friendly and child focused and they helped my 20mth old transition very smoothly. We couldn't be happier with our choice and our child loves going to school.
