My experience with this program has been an eye opener at the least. It is a very strong program in which the method really works with your child, as they grow in capabilities and skills. The classroom is a must see. The activities and "work" as the teachers present it, really draw attention to your child's needs and wants. The children actually indulge in the work and activities. The focus and concentration that these little children display in class while working is really amazing. The best thing about the method is that each child is respected for their individuality and allowed their own time in doing things. I am motivated and inspired by my children's accomplishments at this school. I have changed and brought many ideas from Montessori into our home. Enabling my children to be as independant and self reliant as possible wherever they are, home or school. The respect each teacher has for the children is really unprescedented. The Montessori method of education is a must see for yourself you owe it to yourself and child to check this school out.

The classrooms are very warm and inviting. The learning centers are amazing with intriguing learning materials that my children loved. It is very different from a typical preschool setting. The school is very clean and the classrooms are spotless. The children and staff even wear slippers to keep the rugs clean during the day. It is an environment that is full of fun, and hands on learning. The teachers are very experienced and loving. They embraced my children with compassion, understanding and a genuine concern about their health and well being. Our experience was a truly joyful place to be. I left feeling comfortable and secure every day. That made a difference in how my day started. The problem was at pickup were they did not want to leave!!! Afterschool science program was awsome!!
Mr. Fred runs a very nice school and hires good people. We brought our daughter there from another school that ended up not being so nice. She was welcomed at Goddard and they did a great job of helping her adjust to the change. 2 1/2 years later she can't wait to get up and go to school. We have a hard time getting her to leave. The staff is competent, professional and addresses any concern we have promptly. We highly recommend The Goddard School of Hamilton.
