What our parents say

First Steps Parent

My son has been there for more than 2 months and I am glad that we switched to Goddard School. Special thanks to Sumara and Imran for hiring excellent staff who are very friendly and patient with the kids. Ms. Kate did a fabulous job helping my child to adjust to the new environment. I can see him learning every day, enjoying his time in day to day activities at school. Highly recommend this school to all parents.

From them moment I met the owners of the Goddard School of Long Hill, I knew I was making the right choice for mi kids. I patiently waited for the school to open and my boys started from day 1. So far it has been a great journey, the staff is excellent and the facilities are nice and bright. The owners are always on site caring for every detail and the teachers have been carefully handpicked. I have piece of mind every time I drop off my kids.I highly recommend this school.

As a first time, full time working mom to say my standards were high were an understatement. Sumara and Imran are genuine caring focused and driven to achieve the absolute best for their families and children. Their care shows in every detail of their school,from their landscaping to their teachers,they have worked tirelessly on every single detail to be perfect! Everyday is an absolute joy. I am so grateful to have the opportunity for our baby to begin his education and care here.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about this school.The feeling I got from Sumara and her husband was so comforting. They know that our children are the most important to us and could not make us feel better in making the choice to go with Goddard. They are so hands on that it makes us feel so happy our daughter is in the right place. I literally cannot say enough amazing things about this place. My husband and I are so happy with this Goddard School and we cannot recommend it enough!

Preschool Parent

I cannot recommend the Goddard School of Long Hill enough! We eagerly anticipated opening day and we have not been disappointed. We met with various preschools in the area and none felt exactly right until we met with Sumara, one of the owners of the Goddard School of Long Hill. Her excitement and passion were evident from the first meeting. His teacher is absolutely amazing and having the owners onsite and involved makes a big difference as well. The school is clean and bright and welcoming.

I love this school. I have an 18 month old daughter. She has been thriving since the first day at Goddard School. I’m amazed with the things she does. The owners are always there. Their enthusiasm and compassion show and is shared by all the teachers. I am so comfortable leaving my daughter there knowing she is in great hands. The pictures they send me throughout the day help me feel connected and the report at the end of the day is great and super informative.

- Ella's Mother (Toddler Classroom)

Pre-K Parent

The owners are number one for our family, they are engaged, involved, earnest and present every day and every minute. Staff is engaged and caring at every interaction. Approach fosters learning AND creativity day in and day out. Food, sounds small, but fresh choices and snacks are important to our family. Freshly made and healthy options for all snacks is amazing and our child is trying new things daily!

- Blake's Mother (Pre-K Classroom)

Infant Parent

This school is like no other. This amazing school makes you feel like family from the moment you walk in. Being a first time mom, I was very hesitant about sending my daughter to daycare. I toured numerous schools looking for something perfect.There is not one day that I drop my daughter off that Sumara and Imran are not there. They personally know all of the children and engage with them on a daily basis. After sending my daughter to Goddard, I can confidently say she is at the best school!

- Vivian's Mother (Infant Classroom)

First Steps Parent

We enrolled our son in July, and we could not be happier with our decision. From the first time I met the Ahmad family they have been nothing but wonderful! They make it a point to know every family and keep an open line of communication with us. Donna, the director, is just as involved with the children as their lead teachers. And as if they don’t make The Goddard School amazing enough, then you have the teachers!! They really outdid themselves with the staff the selected.

The Goddard School in Long Hill has made the transition for my wife and I as first parents to having our child in daycare seamless. I appreciate all of the care the teachers show to our daughter and the kindness that all staff members exhibit to children and parents alike. The school is clearly committed to its core principles, and its team members embrace a culture of inclusion and growth meant to inspire the students to dream.

Goddard school is a great place to let my baby to play, to learn, and to meet friends. The staff at Goddard school are very nice and patient to children and parents. My son loves every teacher whom had taken care of him before or whom is currently taking care of him now. It is a sign of enjoying his time at Goddard School. I will definitely recommend it to my friends.
