              I have 3 children (18mo, 3yrs & 5yrs) at Goddard Salmon Creek and we all just love it. It's by far the best program we have found in the NW Clark County area. It's such a good feeling to be able to leave our little monsters at "school" all day and not have to worry about them. The staff is incredible, the curriculum is great, and best of all our kids have a great time! :)

              We have been extremely impressed with the Salmon Creek Goddard School and the entire staff!!!! We had a nanny for 3.5 years who we absolutely loved so we were a little nervous about making the transition to the day care setting. We felt that our oldest son could really benefit from the group atmosphere and knew it would be an easy transition for our 15 month old. The Goddard school has more than exceeded our expectations! The staff encouraged us to call often in the beginning to check in on our boys and they even took the time to send pictures to help us know they were having a good time. Both of our boys adore their teachers and have fun stories to tell us every day. They love all the crafts, songs, friends and fun. We are loving the educational component that they receive every day without even knowing that they are learning. The facility is immaculate and is decked out with great toys that are age appropriate for each class. They create a new theme every month and always have new things going on to keep it enjoyable for everyone. We could not be happier with our decision to enroll our boys in the Salmon Creek Goddard School.

              We can't thank Michele Solari enough for opening The Goddard School in our neighborhood. My 4 year old daughter loves it here. What an exciting time it has been the last few weeks since she started watching her discover and learn through their established curriculum. Two thumbs up!

              The decision of where to place your child for education and care is a big one. I must have looked at 20 different programs before deciding on the Goddard. With a great endorsement from a family member and her child across the country, I felt good about trying out the Goddard School. Once we met Michelle Solari and her staff, we felt comfortable right off the bat. Granted, it's a new school that my son is attending but I can tell this staff has great attention to detail and cares about my little one. Glad we switched to The Goddard.

              We moved to Vancouver from Nova Scotia about a month ago, and we chose Goddard School Salmon Creek for our 4-year-old mostly because it is close to the place where I work. I am very glad I made this decision. My son is having such a great time there everyday, and he doesn't even want to go home! Most importantly, he learns lots of new stuff within such a short time. The programs are fabulous there. Everyday there are times for science, music, art, reading, out-door playing... The teachers are well educated, caring, and very good with kids. The on-site owner and education director are always available when you have any concerns, and they are very helpful. We would highly recommend this school to anyone.

              My children attended a Goddard School from 11mos to almost 5 years old. It was an amazing experience for our family. The time at Goddard really set our children on the right path to love learning. The school became an extended part of our family. Thru that experience we met the owner of this Goddard - Michelle Solari. We are confident that she will create a safe, nurturing environment that will allow each student to thrive and will enrich the lives of the families that attend her school.
