Amount of homework: Neutral


- a
Child too young for homework. I am not sure if and when homework is assigned.



- a
My children love this school, teachers and faculty. It seems as if the 1% of people complaining clearly don't actually know these people.


Effective school leaders: Disagree


- a
there need to be more effective processes in place I believe.

Develops character: Disagree


- a
my toddler has good introduction to hitting, biting, pushing etc.

Teacher effectiveness: Neutral


- a
Its a hit or a miss with the teachers.Some are very gud but some may not be very responsive.




- a
The Director of this school is pathetic with no sense of empathy towards Parents' concerns. She would give abrupt justifications with minimal knowledge on the correct processes. It sounds like you are talking to a street side person and not someone who is associated with Education system.

Teacher effectiveness: Neutral


- a
It is a hit or miss with the teachers. Some of them are great, some don't share much about your child at all. The teacher turnover is extremely high. I have a feeling that they are under paid and over worked. The good ones seem to leave as quickly as they come.



- a
This is not a school with high academic standards. It's just a glorified daycare. The director has in the past dismissed parents concerns as if we asked her a silly question. She seems to be getting better. My biggest problem with this "school" is that it does not meet the quality standards and expectations of patents willing to spend the extra money for it. The reports they send parents are auto generated and they just edit meals and naps a daily basis. It has no valuable information of your child's academic or developmental growth or if they are meeting any milestones. Children are not moved to different classrooms based on their overall development. It is as space becomes available and whatever is convenient for the director. I hope to see fair treatment of all children and teachers alike. Most teachers are very sweet but seem over worked and don't have good feedback of your child's progress in the class. It is not worth the money spent for the Goddard name. I hope to see positive changes in the near future based on honest reviews by parents.


Supports LD students: Neutral


- a
The teachers are usually too busy to pay attention to individual needs.

Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree


- a
The director and assistant director and do not make a sincere effort to really address parent concerns. They just give you an abrupt answer and often disregard your concerns as if it's not a big deal. The sincerity is just not there. It seems forced and as it they are just saying what we want to hear. The owner needs to send anonymous surveys on a regular basis to ensure highest quality of care. He seems removed from running his business.
