Goddard School Child Care Center is a preschool located in Bel Air, Maryland.
This preschool's average Community Rating, based on 4 reviews, is 4 out of 5 stars.
I like the structure in the classroom even though my child is not yet near school age. It is good for him to have a routine and I feel he is learning social skills and it is ultimately beneficial that he is interacting with other children and adults. Not only am I impressed by the social skills he is learning but they focus on education everyday too. We love it!
Everything about this school is wonderful! The owners have a great attitude about learning and the same attitude shines through the wonderful teachers. If you are looking for a preschool where your child will learn and get excited about coming to school every day, this school is for you.
The owner of this franchise is simply a mother who happens to own a business. The administration of this specific Goddard location does not know how to handle the concerns of parents and therefore are more focused on excuses and money than the children that attend the school. The teachers are so-so and overall do not have the proper education and knowledge of early childhood development one would expect at a Goddard School. Most of the classes are over crowded and I'd bet their ratios are greatly off on any given day, which enables a lack of supervision. I would highly suggest and encourage any prospective parent to look elsewhere.
My twins went to Goddard (Bel Air) until recently (we moved). It is the best school by far (my kids have attended schools in 3 different states). I can't say enough for the owner, Mrs. Brenda, their teachers Mrs. Christina, Mrs. Diana and Mrs. Jen. It's been almost 4 months since we moved and my kids still talk about their school, their teachers, and their friends. It breaks my heart to know we don't go there anymore. Because of our experience with Goddard I have been unable to choose a new preschool for my girls now that we are in NY. Just too difficult to find anything close to what Goddard was to us. It is greatly run, kids love being there, the learning, socialization they do is unbeatable. You cannot go wrong by choosing this school for your children.
