My daughter goes to a Goddard school and loves it. So do I. There were some issues as the old owner was terrible with money and ended up declaring bankruptcy, but a owner in Ohio ended up buying the school to prevent it from closing.
At my school, the director is so so so caring. She's actually the one who "turned in" the old owner for not following Goddard standards and all the trouble she was causing with the school. She really wants the children to have an enjoyable, loving, learning experience. I think she really makes all the difference in the world.
Talk with the directors and assistant directors of the school - owners, too, for Goddard (they're supposed to be on-site). If you're comfortable with them, then I think you'll be comfortable with the school they run.
