For the past 6 years I have had my children enrolled at The Goddard School in Noblesville Indiana and I have to say that it has been a wonderful experience for my children as well as for me. Having siblings that I helped to raise and having several children of my own with a 15 year age span I do have the experience locally for comparing all the different day cares and preschools since the '80's. I reached a point 6 years ago of total frustration with all those standard day cares and so called preschools or learning centers. I wanted so much more for my children - and Goddard was the answer! As a parent I want an environment that values my concerns and goals for my children, that asks for and values my opinions. There have been mistakes over the past 6 years, but the wonderfully refreshing aspect of the owners at this school is that they admit they don't have all the answers! They recognize that input, suggestions and solutions are vital from all their families. I am convinced that their growth and success is due to their commitment to their families and the community. They are constantly asking for ways to improve! And I find this quality quite refreshing after so many other programs who tried to tell me how to parent, as though they have all the answers. I wanted a program that would teach my children socially as well as academically, and that provides a warm, nurturing, and secure program my children look forward to attending. Academically my 3 youngest children all were potty trained by the same teacher (excellent teacher retention here by the way), they all learned phonics basics in preschool, were reading before finishing prekindergarten and have learned that "learning is fun". They are encouraged to play, ask questions, expand their imaginations, try new things, and that making a mistake is OK, it's all part of learning. They receive hugs, smiles and warm welcomes from everyone at school – and even want to go on Saturdays! Their curriculum includes sign language, Spanish, manners, world cultures, art history, physical education, nutrition, and computers. It is so hard to express all the wonderful experiences we've had here in this short little review. Actually, I could write a book on how pleased we've been. If you are a parent who demands the best for their children in all aspects, has high expectations for quality staff, cleanliness, and owner accessibility - then you absolutely must visit "our" school in Noblesville Indiana. I'm proud to be a Goddard School parent!
I just wanted to let everyone know how appreciative I am of Faith Montessori and the teachers. One of my children can be at times an anxious and worrisome and I was worried it would cripple her socially. But, having them for her teachers as she transitions into the rest of her life, has given her skills I could never dream of giving her:) They are an amazing group teachers and I may be biased, but I'm pretty sure their way of teaching has made her excel academically past any thing I could have wanted for her... Out of all my children I worry for her the most in school, but because them I can worry a little less. Another of my children could care less about learning, but during conferences I voiced my concerns about this and just a few weeks later she was excellent at everything I worried about! I'm sad our time will be coming to an end this May with Faith, because without a doubt I know ANY of the teachers would give my children that boost of confidence they may need one day with just a smile:) Thank you so much Faith Montessori! Thank you to the teachers for choosing a profession that is among the most important in society. You could have chosen a career with better pay and higher status, but you chose to spend your time and talents as teachers and you're truly impeccable teachers :) The director Jodie is absolutely the most strongest, yet loving and understanding woman and I'm glad my girls have had her as a role model for the past 3 years. I cannot wait to return to Faith once my youngest is 2. We love you Faith
I have been a parent here for many years and have never been more pleased with the school. I am a district manager in the retail industry and have to say I was very impressed with the courage of the owner to replace management last year. I say courage because I know first hand that an action of this this kind does shake things up a bit with staff changes that naturally occur when the bar of expectations is raised, and re-creating a solid, cohesive team takes a lot of hard work and dedication to the end goal. The new directors have been in place since February and are absolutely excellent!. They have created a team that is lively, engaged, clearly loving their jobs and my children are thriving both socially and academically. I am glad that I remained a parent through this transition period and applaud the owner on the improvements that have been made. We are planning on having another child this year and will, without hesitation, continue to be enrolled at this Goddard School. Without any reservations, I wholeheartedly recommend this school and thank them for always maintaining their commitment to high quality and standards!
My child has been attending The Goddard School in Noblesville since July 2015. Although it has been a short time, I could not be more pleased with the care my child receives on a daily basis. The facility and staff are warm, welcoming, and very professional. The building is always very clean and I appreciate the safety features located around the building. I know my child is safe and well taken care of throughout the day. I also have nothing but good things to say about the directors at this facility. They were very knowledgeable and answered all questions I had with ease and confidence. I really feel like The Goddard School in Noblesville is one of the best child care facilities located in the Noblesville area. I would highly recommend this facility to any perspective parents in the area.
We have 4 children at Faith Montessori who thoroughly love their experience each and every day. The director and all of the teachers care deeply and work so hard to give the children wonderful hands on activities that cover all of the developmental and social aspects of learning. Each of our children have different personalities/learning styles and they are taught in the way they learn best and based on their own ability level. They have a very convenient carline for drop-off and pickup and we are always greeted with a smile and kind words. The school/parent communication is wonderful with weekly email updates and a monthly calendar. I highly recommend this school! We couldn't be happier with our experience over the past 3 years :).
Wonderful school! Between our two children, we have been at Faith Montessori for 5 years. The teachers are truly gifted at working with this age group and the love of Jesus shines through them to the children. Plus, they have set a great foundation for their education. The director is also flexible and easy to work with. Two years ago we moved but have continued to make the 20 min drive because we think they do such a great job.
Faith Montessori Preschool has been a big blessing in ou lives. The director & teachers are wonderful & very hands-on. While providing a fun learing atmosphere, they have worked diligently with our son to develop emotionally and socially. I have seen such tremendous growth in our child and am so thankful to the staff of Faith!
Liked this preschool for our son but am looking elsewhere for his last year. It is really hard to have young children plus children that are ready for more advanced activities in the same class. We loved the staff but know that our son needs more.
Do not send your children to this school! The staff is irresponsible from the teachers all the way up to the owners. They fail to do the job that they should. I would not recommend this school to anyone**
We have been at Faith for two years including the Kindergarten class. We love all of the teachers and staff members! Our daughter has grown so much since starting at Faith Montessori.
