This was by far the worst childcare experience we have ever had. My son is the type of child that doesn't have bad drop offs, he is the type of child that knows his teachers names and he never had any issues with any other school. We had him Goddard for about 9 days before we pulled him. The director and teachers knew was having rough drop offs and did NOTHING to help us as parents or him as a child. The teachers were always sitting, never offered help in the mornings, never told us about his day. To top it off when we expressed that we were having concerns we didn't even get a response! Do yourself a favor and just cross this place off your list. I am happy to say that we have found another childcare right around the corner that is brand new and our son LOVES it! He never has rough drop offs, knew his teachers name in 2 days, the teacher always walks over in the mornings and evenings to talk with us. Just goes to show you that it wasn't my son that had issues it was the environment he was in and it was his way of telling us that something wasn't right.
