I noticed the terrible review left by a previous family. This facility has new ownership effective early 2020. The new owners are amazing. I have two children at Goddard. They love every team member at this facility. It has always impressed me that we can walk down the hall and everyone greets us by name. Most days I can't get my children to leave because they are having so much fun learning. Highly recommend this team.

We put our son in The Goddard School after a reasonably wide search. We got two very strong recommendations from other families who had excellent experiences there, and ours was no different. Our son was in almost every class along the way and had experience with nearly every teacher and assistant in the school. He loved them all, and we appreciated them, too. Excellent communication, plus a safe, fun environment for our son made this a no-brainer. Paul (the owner) helped us to get over the first week nerves, and he went out of his way on a number of occasions to accommodate our variable schedule. We had our son there for three years and I can't imagine a better scenario for him or us. Highly recommended.

The owners are completely self centered and not aware I'd what is going on in the class rooms. Our 3 year old attended this school and after a week she started crying every morning saying she didn't want to go to school and that her teacher was very mean. When we asked the owner if there were any problems we were told he didn't have time for this that he had to many bills to pay and if we didn't like it to take our child somewhere else. We did. When we asked the rescue about my daughter's comments we were treated very rude as well. I wonder what type of relationship these two have since she feels so untouchable. The facility looks very clean but underneath it is a scary place. When I contacted corporate about this I was basically told we don't care as long as they keep the checks coming in. The owner sits very high and mighty in his business office while the classes are understaffed and over crowded. Trust me. Look elsewhere.

We sent my 3 year old son to Goddard. While he loved his teacher Miss Kristy, he came home with crazy stories that did not sit right with my husband and I. Not sure I could really recommend this school to anyone. The staff seems nice but I believe some of the assistants may need to be screened a bit better.
