Highly, highly disappointed in what I've learned about this Goddard School. I was strongly considering taking my two kids here, as the school tour was great. I nearly had enrolled but I decided to talk privately with a few of the teachers. Wow. I was shocked when they revealed how poorly they are treated. Not just salary (which is abysmal) but also very unfair - and nearly unethical - conditions of employment. It says a lot about an establishment and this Goddard school is only focused on making money and NOT on giving the best experience for my children. I highly recommend that any parent considering this location talk one-on-one with a teacher (privately) for a big-picture view of how things are run.
We had our 3 yr old son going to Goddard as part of pre-school cum daycare program. Initially he got upset going to school just like any other kid. But it was the staff and teachers in Goddard who made him feel at home. They gave him special attention and care which made him love school. One special attraction about Goddard school is that we were emailed best moments of our child each day. Midst of work we were worried how our kid would be doing at school, but looking at the best moment pics it almost relaxed us that our son was enjoying the place and having utmost fun and frolic with his classmates and teachers. Definitely his learning curve improved and he excelled in creativity, thought process, the way he sings and interacts with other kids as well as command over the language. He kept singing the song whatever objects he was seeing with the same tune... and the way he says "Days of the week" with sound is awesome... Surely every point mentioned here is all what we as parents have experienced from Goddard school. Nothing here has been exaggerated.If you are looking for a daycare then Goddard is a good choice for your kid.
We have sent all 3 of our kids to The Goddard School in Centennial and we love the school. Our oldest is now in 1st grade and we felt she was extremely well prepared for elementary school when she left Goddard. Our 2 boys now attend Goddard and are doing great. We have been extremely pleased with the quality of teachers and the academic, and social development all of our children have made at this school. We highly recommend it to everyone we talk to.
I agree with both sides of the stories thus far written. More than one of my children has attended the Goddard school. Whenever your child is easy and requires no extra work for the school, it is wonderful. If your child requires any extra output than it is horrible. In these situations the owners make you feel as if your child is problematic and they are going out of their way to do things for your child. I am not referring to difficult things but for example putting diaper cream on with every diaper change, the response I got was as if I had asked them for an enormous task that was beyond what I should even consider asking. Also I realize that kids are kids and they carry germs HOWEVER, they allow kids to come in very ill which get the rest of the kids sick. They go through a lot of teachers. Some are great and wonderful with the kids. Some look like they were picked up at a trashy bar. The good teachers tend to leave which is why I think that they are not well supported and I have been told the pay is awful.I think overall the school is on the extreme side very good or very bad.
