              .

              This daycare is the most expensive that we considered but we went with it because of the reputation that The Goddard School has - we wanted the best! We initially were impressed at the cleanliness of the facility and the "systems" that they have in place.
              BUT, we left shortly after we were enrolled due to concerning things we saw first hand in the classroom. Be advised not to pay up front or you will never be reimbursed if you are unsatisfied. The owners' hearts are in the financials and not in the welfare of the children.
              We found another daycare for our child that puts the tender love and care of the children first and we couldn't be happier!
