The Goddard School in Silver Spring has been an amazing experience for our son. The level of kindness, patience, and knowledge from everyone cant be measured. The facility is very up-to-date and always kept clean.The curriculum is wonderful. It keeps the kids learning and busy. If you are looking to jump start your toddler before Kindergarten I highly recommend having them attend The Goddard School.

The Goddard School is wonderful - we had a very positive experience here! The facilities are beautiful and clean and the teachers and administration are very warm. All of them knew my daughters name and greeted her in the hallways. She loved coming to school here every day. Highly recommend!

My daughter is currently enrolled at Goddard and has been going there for over 2 years and we have been extremely happy with the school! The teachers do a good job of balancing play and learning, my daughter seems super happy. Administration has been great to communicate with and flexible for us for our part time needs. Having searched and toured many preschools in the area Goddard is one of the best in Silver Spring

My son started at The Goddard School 1.5 years ago and it has been just an incredible experience from the very beginning. This was my/his first experience with organized daycare/school, and I cannot imagine how my sons next school could ever live up to the high bar that Goddard has set. He loves his teachers and classmates, and Im amazed every day at how much he has learned. From a parents standpoint, I also love the security of the school and the Tadpoles app where they post daily reports and pictures. Its a wonderful place with people who truly care about my son and his development.

The Goddard Silver Spring School’s curriculum was the most impressive to me. It was very comprehensive, and surprisingly inclusive of true “specials” .They had actual special teachers ie a Spanish instructor, a Sign Language instructor, and a Yoga Instructor. I thought all the teachers were compassionate and nurturing, which little ones need as they explore and learn. I was especially grateful that the teachers paid attention to the individual students and made adjustments to address my child’s skill set. I felt like my child advanced greatly, although she was unable to participate in the outstanding STEM program for full time 5 day a week kiddos. This Goddard made special efforts to incorporate new technology with smart boards, along with using standard mediums for learning. Overall, I love the Goddard Model, but I was especially happy with the warm and friendly atmosphere of the the Goddard Silver Spring School. This school was able to uphold the global standards of their model, and extend beyond it, to help little ones advance as they transition to elementary school. I would highly recommend this program to my friends, colleagues, and family members.

They have VERY caring staff that sends daily updates on my daughter with descriptions of what they learned and worked on throughout day (pictures included). Something amazing about their school is it seemingly never closes - so when other schools have a snow day, they might just have a delay in opening. Moreover, when other schools are closed for holidays and such, they are almost always OPEN!

Awful place! Rampant neglect! We had an awful experience with our toddler. Our daughters high fever was ignored and we were not contacted when she got sick. She was there for only two weeks and was injured on her face because then staff were not paying attention. My husband and I observed the class and saw toddlers crying while the teachers ignored them. The administration does get along with the teachers and admitted to us that they do not have a presence in the classroom. The kids rarely go outside. It should be a huge red flag that there is rarely a waitlist. Weve heard awful stories from other parents who are also pulling their kids out. The teachers openly dislike the curriculum and we observed them forcing kids to partake in activities just to take a picture to send to their parents. DO NOT SEND YOUR KIDS HERE!!!!!

As a parent, I firmly believe that the best yet most difficult choices you make are those related to your childs education. Before enrolling my son in the Goddard School, I did a ton of research and toured myriad schools in the area. After meeting with Mr. Worley who took the time to answer all of my questions, I felt very good about my decision.On my sons first day- I was encouraged to observe the class. My son would typically get upset when Id leave him at daycare or preschool, but from day one at Goddard- he was and is excited to join in the activities and to engage with both the teachers and students.My son comes home each day, excited about what he learned, singing new songs, talking about the books and activities of the day. I love the daily reports that I receive that outline his cognitive development, creative and language arts, motor skills, music, movement, social sciences, nature, and more.The school provides a wonderful blend of exploration, education, and enrichment. My sons amazing teachers are proactive in informing me about his day and development.No matter what time of day (drop offs, early or normal pick ups)- the children are on task, having fun, the facility is clean, secure, and the teachers are providing undivided attention to the students.There is nothing more important than knowing your child is safe, happy, and healthy! I am so thankful for having all of this at the Goddard School.

The Goddard School in Silver Spring has been a great learning environment for our daughter. Ashley and her teaching staff are very responsive and have taken an active interest in our child. We would enthusiastically recommend The Goddard School to any parents with small children in the Silver Spring area.

I highly recommend the Goddard School of Silver Spring! We sent our two-year-old daughter for the summer and she LOVED it. She would come home singing songs she learned and would delight at seeing photos of the days activities that her teachers sent out. I also saw her grow socially, as she became more comfortable being with other children her age, and the skills required for it (e.g., sharing!). In sum, I was very satisfied with the curriculum, the caring teachers, and my daughters overall experience.

Review №11

I walk by the school every day and most of the time the teachers seem disconnected with the children. And the other day I saw a teacher shoving a little one along and telling her to move faster as they walk to the playground. Please don’t be fooled by all their marketing, I have a two-year-old and I would not want my child going to this school.

My daughters attended a pre-k program here and we were highly impressed. Everyone has been welcoming to us starting in a new school year and our kids really enjoyed their time at Goddard.The teachers are friendly but have control of the classroom. The kids get a great breadth of learning opportunities.The staff and school are super organized and professional. We have two working parents in our house so flexibility with later pick up has been great. There have been days where MOCO school system was cancelled for our older child and Goaddard is still open to teach our kids with their staff outside shoveling the sidewalk to open for the day.This has been a great place for our kids.
