Warm and welcoming

From our initial tour all the way thru our sons first day, the Goddard Hazlet staff has been nothing but warm and welcoming. Our son has transitioned into the school process seamlessly thanks to their help.

My son enjoys going everyday. I especially like the daily photos and communication.

Program, Staff

The learning experience and structure as a whole is incredible. The difference in my children now from when they started last year is astonishing. They learn while having fun which is important.

- Ryder and Landon's Mother (Toddler Classroom)


The people and the program. Aimee, Michelle, Laura and Emily are wonderful. Always focused on what's best for the kids. We love the curriculum and how the teachers communicate what's happening back to the parents. This is our last summer at the school and we will miss it very much. Goddard Hazlet has prepared our son perfectly for Kindergarten. Thank you!

Safe and well cared for.

We love how happy our son is every day! He wants to be the first one at school. He is learning so much and is having a great time doing so. I always feel that he is safe and well cared for.

- Anthony's Mother (Preschool Classroom)

Very enriching! A variety of fun and educational activities. My baby is so happy there and loves her teachers.

- Lila's Mother (Infant Classroom)

Safe, thrilled to be part of Goddard

I love that my son loves it there. I have felt safe from day one sending my child to this school. Everyone there is amazing. Everyone knows who we are and makes us feel like family. When my son can’t be with his family I am thrilled that he can be at the Goddard School.

- Richard's Mother (Pre-K Classroom)

The professional safe environment. It's tailored to working parents who want to ensure the best care for their children.

- Mia's Mother (Infant Classroom)

It is a very friendly, warm environment. I like the activities and all the projects they do. Everyone seems to really care about her and her well being.

- Rachael's Mother (Infant Classroom)

Education is outstanding! The program and teachers are great! Love love love this school!

- Joseph's Mother (Toddler Classroom)

Lesson plans involving different activities such as kinesthetic, tangible, experiments, hands on. Changing activities every 30 minutes.

- Logan's Mother (Preschool Classroom)

Personalized care to each child and family! The parents have gotten together to form close friendships and gain support from one another. This all began with parent discussions on back to school night.

- Thomas's Mother (Preschool Classroom)

From the moment I walked into this school, I felt at home. I knew without a doubt that my son would not only learn and grow, but be safe and loved. As his two years at Goddard come to a close, I am so proud of all he has achieved here, all he has learned, and how much he has grown from a painfully shy little toddler to a confident young boy who is ready to get out there and show the world what he's made of. He couldn't have done that without the teachers in the PreSchool and the PreK classrooms. I tear up thinking that I won't be walking through those halls and up the stairs to pick him up next year. As much as he will miss the people and his friends from Goddard, I think my husband and I will miss them as well. Thank you for all you have done for him and for us.

- Joshua's Mother (Pre-K Classroom)

The kids identify as learners. They know so much, love to learn and are excellent at problem solving.

- Alexa, Gabriella and Robert's Mother (Pre-K Classroom)

Cleanliness, Staff

Friendly and respectful environment, effective way of teaching through play and positive reinforcement. Clean facilities.

- Stefan , Adrian and Milana's Mother (Toddler Classroom)

I like the individual attention each of the students get to help them succeed regardless of learning style. The staff truly takes it upon themselves to learn the ways of each of the students and to work with the parents to ensure the best overall situation.

- Brienna's Mother (Toddler Classroom)

Staff, Programs

Every aspect of a child's life is addressed one way or another. From teaching the children how to work a zipper to learning spanish words. Everything from the small every day tasks to knowledge that will help them to adulthood are taught.

- Jay's Mother (Toddler Classroom)

The syllabus and type of artwork provided. Also keeping parents up to date with all kinds of reports, photos and other descriptions of their child via tadpoles.

- Juhilekha Sonia and Sonialekha Juhi's Father (Toddler Classroom)

Quality of Program & Staff

We are very pleased with the quality of care provided to our two sons. The teachers in both our sons' classrooms are welcoming, caring, and extremely organized. We appreciate, and our sons' benefit from the structure and routine the teachers adhere to in each classroom. Both our boys are actively engaged with their teachers and/or their peers on a daily basis, which has certainly aided in their social and cognitive development. We have and will continue to highly recommend the Goddard School of Hazlet.

- Emmitt and Henry's Mother (Preschool Classroom)

The teachers are kind and all the teachers know the names of every child in the school! Our son is thriving and advancing under the care of these amazing women (and Mr. Doug!)
