What our parents say

My child's first school experience

I am happy to have chosen the Freehold Goddard School to be be my child's first school experience. I expressed my expectations and also my worries as parent who has never left a child with anyone. Ms. Heidi spoke with great passion of the program and shared experiences not only as a director but as a parent herself! We worked collaboratively with her teachers in coming up with ideas on how to make my child more comfortable and confident with them. Now my child cannot wait to get school everyday!

Our second family

They have been caring for our family for 8 years - they are our second family. Has been a wonderful time with all of the teachers and staff there...will be sad to leave.

- Oliver, Henry and Lucas's Mother (Pre-K Classroom)

Good balance of academics, life skills, social skills

The teachers are very kind, caring and work with my children to ensure they are well prepared to enter Kindergarten. The school provides a good balance of academics, life skills, social skills and play time. I feel that each and every one of the teachers at Goddard care for my children and have their best interests at heart.

Recommend Goddard to our family and friends

We are so happy to have our daughter attend Goddard. She started out in the get set program and is now in the Kindergarten class and loves it. She has learned so much both academically and socially. We would recommend Goddard to our family and friends

You will be our first stop

We have had a truly wonderful experience during our time at Goddard and we feel extremely comfortable leaving Tyler in the care of your teachers. I cannot speak highly enough about your teachers, they are amazing. Thank you for your services and when the time comes again, when we need daycare, you will be our first stop.

Comments via a Third-Party Survey

My son loves his teachers and enjoys going to school

We continue to appreciate how special Goddard is! Our son just loves his teachers and really enjoys going to school. The activities he does every day are fun and educational. I love the attention to detail from management to make sure everyone sticks to their high standards such as labeling items, making sure everyone has had a flu shot, and changing the security code frequently. Thank you for all that you do for our children!

- Jacob and Cameron's Mother (Preschool Classroom)

We couldn't have been happier

Both of my children attended the Goddard School and we couldn’t have been happier! They loved going to school and I loved knowing they were in a caring environment. Developmentally appropriate activities were provided and play was used as the main method of instruction. My kids were so excited for learning and that carried over in to their elementary school experiences.

- Nathan and Jacob's Mother (Pre-K Classroom)

Goddard is the best choice parents can make for their child

Goddard is the best choice parents can make for their child. My son has been to a few other daycares in the area and they do not compare. My son is challenged daily and has learned a tremendous amount. He is happy and loves going to school and every teacher. I am also highly impressed with Heidi, the owner, who takes the time to learn not only every child's name but also every parent's name. Goddard makes you feel like family and it's worth every cent.

Positive learning enviroment

Open communication, invested staff, very responsive owner, nice variety of family-oriented activities (e.g. Egg hunt) and my son is happy and loves school, which clearly indicates a positive learning environment.

Really care about the children

Everyone from the teachers to the owner really care about the children. The curriculum is great. They are flexible and willing to work with you on a variety of things. They go out of their way to make you feel comfortable.

- Nicholas's Mother (Toddler Classroom)

The curriculum is well balanced with education and fun

The curriculum is well balanced with education and fun to keep children interested in learning. In addition the staff is very knowledgeable on all subjects. We love the fact that additional extra activities are also offered, providing us working parents with a scheduling benefit. ie; Ballet

Everything is great!

Everything! This summer is my son's last summer at Goddard as he will be entering the 1st grade next year. If not for him outgrowing Goddard he would still attend.

Teachers enjoy their jobs

Esp for older children, lots of learning, music and crafts activities (only so much you can do with infants and toddlers :) Admin are accessible and responsive and provide strong supervision of students and teachers. Safe and clean school. Teachers seem to enjoy their jobs - happy and interested in your kids - that means so much. My boys love/loved it there. Declan runs out the door to school every day (literally). Gannon was so prepared for K and still loves school.
