The Goddard School Tuition Costs

The Goddard School’s tuition rates depend on the location of the school and the child’s age, along with whether the child is attending full-time or part-time.[1][2]

Because Goddard School locations are franchises, it’s best to contact the school you are interested in for its exact tuition rates.

However, we contacted representatives at several Goddard School locations across the U.S. and found the following tuition estimates.

Note that tuition may be higher or lower than these estimates in your area; for example, certain cities like Denver and New York City tend to have higher childcare costs than smaller cities in the Midwest.

Program Monthly Part-Time Tuition Monthly Full-Time Tuition
Infant Unavailable $1,350 to $3,225
Toddler $915 to $2,350 $1,200 to $3,095
Preschool $915 to $2,265 $1,200 to $2,825
Pre-Kindergarten/Kindergarten $900 to $2,000 $1,200 to $2,500

The Goddard School offers part-time childcare at most facilities. Be aware that some locations consider this to be half days while others consider fewer than five weekdays to be part-time childcare.[2]

Additional Costs to Consider

In addition to tuition, there are a couple of costs to consider. These include the following:

Registration Fees

Registration fees vary by location but generally range from around $75 to $275 per child. This fee is due annually.[2]

Before- and After-School Care

Some locations offer before- and/or after-school childcare. This may include transportation to and from school, depending on the location and your child’s school.[2]

Prices range from about $750 to $1,550 per month. Some locations offer different prices depending on the number of days you need before- and/or after-school childcare.[2]

Tuition Discounts

You may be eligible for a tuition discount. Keep in mind that eligibility varies by location and each family’s circumstance.[1][2]

Here are a few options to consider:

  • Multiple child discount: Some Goddard locations offer a discount when you enroll more than one child. The locations we contacted that offer this discount give the oldest child 10% off of tuition, though details vary by location.[2]
  • Military discount: Some locations offer discounted tuition to children of military members. The locations we contacted that offer this discount give 15% off of tuition, though details vary by location.[2]

Payment Methods and Schedule

Each Goddard School location sets its own guidelines for acceptable payment methods and scheduling. However, every location we contacted requires monthly or bi-monthly payments.[2]

Most locations we contacted accept ACH payments directly from your bank account. Other locations also accept cash, checks, debit cards, or credit cards, though credit card payments may incur a 3% fee.[2]
