The Goddard School® in Buckeye is located in the heart of the Verrado® community, just 25 miles west of downtown Phoenix. More than just a daycare, our private childcare center & preschool provides high quality, year-round early childhood education to children ages six weeks to six years old, with nine separate classrooms for Infants through Prekindergarten. We also offer a summer camp program for children attending elementary school from Kindergarten through 5th Grade. We use the most current, academically endorsed methods to ensure children have fun while learning the skills they need for long-term success in school and in life.
The Goddard School's comprehensive play-based curriculum provides the optimal environment for a child's development and school readiness.The results of a recent formative assessment by Children's Progress Academic Assessment (CPAA) show that students at The Goddard School consistently outperform the general population of Prekindergarten and Kindergarten CPAA users by a significant margin. Goddard School faculty write their own lesson plans on a daily basis, providing a customized learning approach to meet the needs of each individual child.
