These teachers dont teach hardly. They dont develop these children. You are better off teaching your child then the teacher.

These students are not being taught or challenged in anyway. The teachers are babysitters. My child hasn't learn hardly anything from this school. She has learned more from ABC mouse or her past school. She is not motivated at all in this school.

No.. The teachers don't develop the students strengths or weakness. There is no real structure.

No.. They allow students to hit one another without consequences. They want the students to work it out among each other without getting the adults involved.

No, this school doesn't show interest in their students at all. They alienate some students and show favoritism to others.

Currently my child goes to the cascade location. Since my child has started at the Goddard which would be from September -current I have had several problems. Meeting with her current teacher along with the director. Nothing has been resolved. My daughter has been picked on, ignored and alienated. Teachers are not welcoming nor attentive to the children. They sit at there small desk located by their doors and do paperwork.. Very disheartening to see no interaction between child and teachers. I placed my child at this school based on good things I heard about the school. This daycare is 800.00-888.00 per month which is fine money is not the problem the problem is they are not worth the money they ask for. Please do not send your children here if you want results. I will rate it a one star because it is very clean.

Stay Away ! The only good thing about this school is that is fairly clean. Although everything looks nice and dandy when you drop your kid off, don't be fooled ! The children fight, there is no discipline whatsoever. The teachers and owner are ignorant to your complaints altough they will smile in your face and tell you all will be taken care of. Your child will get hit, pushed, shoved by other children and noone will do a thing about it. If you complain, they will asure you that everything will be fine but noone will do anything about it. You have been warned...!!
