Editorial review from Citysearch 8/30/2013

We were one of the first families to join Goddard and have been with them for almost two years. We left only because of Kindergarten. With any new school especially in a transient community like ours, we experienced some bumps along the road; however, we worked through them with the owner, administrators and teachers. They listened to our concerns. Sometimes they created new procedures or policies to address them and sometimes they politely provided another viewpoint (which we needed – I’m a picky accountant/auditor)! \r \r They encourage parental involvement and welcome phone calls and scheduled meetings. Yes, we did experience a high turnover of staff between January and June 2012 but have seen much lower turnover since then and have had high quality teachers. Ms. Rose and Ms. Trisha have been with the school for over a year and are incredible. At one time, they co-taught. They now have their own classroom spreading the quality of education to more children. One used to rub both of my boys’ backs at nap time which they still require at bedtime! The other surprised them at their last soccer game! That’s the love, encouragement and dedication we saw.\r \r When the school understood our family’s food issues, they quickly responded by providing alternatives and calling us for clarifications. When they couldn’t offer Kindergarten, they still provided a Kindergarten prep program over the summer at no additional cost. Ms. Sharmetta created a fun time in learning to write. She “lit the fire” in our boys’ interests in coloring more and doing mazes.\r \r As far as cleanliness – superior! And, if you don’t want the teachers to go through your child’s lunch in the morning to record what he/she will be eating, then give them a note of what is in the lunchbox. They appreciate it - it saves them time. \r \r For those parents wanting a Harvard graduate below the age of 6, you will be disappointed. This is about learning through play. Your child will bring home lots of arts and crafts for you to hang on the refrigerator. They will play in a garden, sing silly songs and create amazing structures with wooden blocks. They learn their letters and numbers early; however, you won’t see handwriting until the last two years of the program. The curriculum is specifically designed that way but don’t worry you’ll be impressed when they do. And, to take full advantage of the program you should be enrolled in 5 half days or 5 full days. It’s unfair to expect the same education for a child going less than that. Any reputable school will tell you this. more

If you want your child to have a great educational start this is the school for you. The children do 8 educational activities per day. In addition, they have wonderful opportunities to experience non-traditional activities for a child care facility such as having visits from the fire department or being visited by a chimp :) In addition the owner and the staff are amazing!!! more

We were at first not sure about switching our girls to The Goddard School but once we did, we could not have been more pleased. In our house, we don't refer to The Goddard School as daycare or even preschool; it's simply school. We've seen our girls grow tremendously since starting at The Goddard School. Each day they have a variety of activities from learning letters and numbers and different yoga poses, and each day they come home with a report written by the teach of how each child's day went and what activities they participated. The teachers are wonderful and take a true interest in each child's learning development as well as their emotional development. Most days they are greeted at the door as they arrive by either the owner or the school administrator and as they leave each day it's often the same with a hug good-bye and an I'll see you tomorrow. I couldn't think of a better school to send my children. more
