              Our daughter has been going to Goddard School for several months now, and she just loves it ! She goes in the morning, twice a week. The teachers are wonderful with the kids, I really like the way they handle them, appreciate the structure (even though the kids have some time to visit different activity centers and can enjoy activities they choose) and I was impressed to see that the class while ""busy"" remains well behaved (the teacher has it under control). \r\n\r\nI also left my infant in the nursery and was equally pleased. She did well, they sent me a pic of my baby smiling, and by the time I went back to pick her up, she was peacefully sleeping in a crib...\r\n\r\nAdditionally, this is a new and clean facility and the management team is friendly, flexible and accommodating. \r\n\r\nThey care and it shows !!! \r\n

              My 2 year old started at Goddard in November after having been with a nanny in our home up until that point. The staff was so welcoming and understanding and worked to transition him into the daycare setting. It took no time at all for him to grow to love his teachers and his little friends. I was able to observe that first week on several occassions and found that the teachers and staff were genuine and loving. \r\n\r\nThe facility is brand new and the security is spectacular. I never worry about my child's safety or well being throughout the day.\r\n\r\nThe cirriculum is excellent and it's evident in my son's development. He has learned so much since he started. \r\n\r\nOverall I can't think of one negative thing...which is not common...I honestly LOVE the Goddard school.

              My 2 year old boy has been with the Goddard School on Frate Braker since they opened Fall of 2009. The facility is warm, welcoming and cheerful with different rooms dedicated to providing an age appropriate learning environment. The facility is safe and secure with a dual control entry making it almost impossible for an unauthorized person to enter. The teachers are educated professionals who have chosen child development as a career not just a paycheck. My little boy has made amazing progress and continues to amaze me daily with little songs, colors, shapes, and growing vocabulary he shares with us. His vocabulary and speech have been somewhat delayed so his progress is testimonial to his teachers and learning environment. They have made wonderful efforts to successfully potty train my little boy and for two working parents this is priceless :). I love the fact that the teacher to child ratio is less the the state requirement of 10:1...Yikes that is nuts.\nBut I suppose the biggest peace of mind a parent can have is showing up early and peeking through the window to see your child engaged in an activity (not just controlled chaos) and HAPPY!!

              My son is in the infant room at The Goddard School and we can not say enough wonderful things about it! The teachers are awesome and truly seem to love their jobs! They honestly seem to love being with our son everyday. The director and owner are very hands on and have created a warm, friendly environment. The facility is very bright, clean and full of age appropriate toys. The tuition includes several different programs such as yoga, sign language, etc. We truly feel like this is the best place our son could be everyday (next best thing to home)!
