Our children absolutely love Goddard and we couldn't be happier with everyone from the teachers, staff, and owners. When my son's teacher learned that a number of the kids in her class played on the same soccer team she took time outside of school to come watch them play one evening. The dedication to education from the teachers to the staff and owners has been very impressive. I'd highly recommend Goddard to anyone looking for a great environment for their kids to learn and have fun while doing it.
Our children have had an amazing experience at the Goddard of Fort Mill. We enrolled our oldest child in the JK program and in only one year, he grew by leaps and bounds academically. I wish we had known about the school when we were first looking for preschools! Now our youngest has started at the school in the 2 year old class and again, I am amazed at his growth. As an educator, I am extremely impressed with the curriculum my children have received, the quality of teachers, and the constant communication with the parents. It is reassuring knowing that my children aren't just attending a "babysitting service" but are actually learning and engaging with science, math, and technology; developing socially; and emerging as leaders. If you only knew the daycares/preschools we have experienced in the past, you would understand my passion for this wonderful school! Thank you Bill and Amy!!
We have been at The Goddard School in Fort Mill for several months and we are loving it. My daughter has learned so much in such a short period of time. Here are some points we are very impressed with: 1. The kids learn through play and have plenty of free play too. 2. Their fitness and music classes are for all kids at no additional cost. 3. Their classrooms resemble elementary school classroom and they use computers/iPads with fun educational activities for the kids, but the kids screen time is limited 4. They send us pictures of our daughter throughout the day (my favorite part) and we also get a report at the end of the day with a summary of her day. 5. The owners are very proactive and are always looking of ways to improve the experience.
Truly excellent school! We transferred our girls here after having a great experience at The Goddard School in Ballantyne. The teachers, directors, and owners are always available and make a genuine effort to have a personal relationship with each family and child. I couldn't say enough about this school, except that I would have never left if it hadn't been for my husbands job change. You never have to worry about your child here - truly exceptional school!
We have been to 3 different Goddard Schools (we have 2 daughters and we moved recently) and the Goddard School in Fort Mill is by far the best. The teachers are very attentive and consistent. We had attended a Goddard in NC where the turn over of teachers was so high my eldest had 3 different lead teachers in 5 months. My youngest has an anxiety disorder. Her teachers have been great in working with me to help her deal with her anxiety and were supportive in implementing her therapist's recommendations. The directors and owners are friendly and are very dedicated to the success of their students and ensuring their school is up to date on the latest educational programs for their pre-kindergarten class. We are so fortunate to be part of the Goddard family in Fort Mill
I love The Goddard School in Fort Mill! As a Kindergarten teacher in a great school district, it was very important for my son to attend a transitional kindergarten program that would provide him with a good foundation and prepare him for future years in elementary school. I can say I have been very pleased with his progress and the curriculum at The Goddard School. The teachers are very nurturing and students have access to a variety of tools that help meet their needs. They work with the students at "their" levels, so students grow in their own time and receive instruction that encourages growth. The school has updated technology, which includes student accessible computers and Smart Boards. I additionally like that their curriculum reflects instruction aligned with building P21 skills, as these are essential life skills and better prepare students to be confident, independent thinkers. The owners and staff are extrememly friendly and open and continually look for ways to enhance student learning. if you are looking for a solid program and learning environment for your child, I encourage you to consider all they have to offer.
I am very happy with the care my children have received at the Goddard School at Fort Mill. Our older child who has recently 'graduated' to Kindergarten was very well prepared for life in a public school. The environment at the Goddard School at Fort Mill is nurturing and helped him develop the social and academic skills he needs to be successful in school. Our younger child is now going through the same program and we are seeing the same terrific results. I highly recommend the Goddard School at Fort Mill.
