Offering The Best Childhood Preparation for Social and Academic Success.

The love and commitment Goddard parents have for their children and their development inspires us to continually offer the best preparation possible.

What our parents say

The staff is is obvious they love their job and the children. They take pride in the appearance and cleanliness of their classrooms and little bathrooms. Receiving the daily photos and notes in the Tadpoles app is so great as I could really see how my kids were doing each day. Mr. Sal and Miss Michelle are very attentive and always available to listen or discuss any concerns or questions and always do address it.They are second to none!

Caring Staff

The facility itself is kept very cleanly. The staff is great from the front office to the teachers. In my experience everyone seems to genuinely care about the children they are taking care of and is accommodating to each individual families needs as much as possible. I would recommend to my family and friends especially for younger children (up to 7 or 8 years old).

Special bond

From the moment you join The Goddard School in Gilbertsville, you gain a special family. Trusting someone to care for your children in your absence is extremely difficult. But I can assure you that Sal and his entire staff treat each child as if they were their own.Michelle and Mia dedicate themselves to our children and the families. Organized, energized, caring, and informative. The communication between parents and staff has always been top-notch.

School Environment

I sincerely thank all of the staff for everything you’ve done for Lilyana. She loved coming to school everyday! She learned so much and I’m very grateful. Miss Andrea is the best! She genuinely cares about her kiddos and you can see it. As well as of course Mia and Michelle, they made lily feel very special and loved! Thank you all again so so so much! We’ll visit! Rivera Family! ( she is no longer attending only bc of work hours!!) WE LOVE GODDARD!!!

Impactful Learning

My son has been at the school for 3 years and everyone is great. What made it even more special is that my son is on the Spectrum. They went out of their way to help him as much as they could with open hearts and minds. We are headed to kindergarten now and will miss everyone there. Hopefully see them one more time for summer camp. Thank you to everyone who has who has made an impact on him.

Children Thrive at The Goddard school

We have both our children enrolled at Goddard and have been here a little over a year. We love the school and are impressed with the quality of staff. Our children both thrive, and our preschooler asks on Sundays when he can go back to school. The summer program is amazing and they always have great activities lined up. We would highly recommend this school, we shopped around the area and found this to be by far the best quality daycare. less ?

- Weston and Blake's Mother (Infant Classroom)

Our boys love it there. Sal and the teaching staff are so caring and go above and beyond for all the children there. Can't thank them enough for everything they have done!

- Nathan and Brendan's Father (Pre-K Classroom)

The teachers, staffs, owner are all very friendly and helpful at the same time; all inquiries are returned in a timely manner. I do think that kids will eventually get into confrontation with another kid, get hurt while running, or get upset by something, these are all inevitable. I do think the staffs try their best to better balance the whole group and make the day better. If you're looking for place for your babies, toddlers, pre-schoolers, Goddard School would be my top choice in the area.

- Summer and Chace's Mother (Preschool Classroom)

My son has been coming here since he was 10 weeks old. Miss Michelle, the director, Miss Mia, and Mr. Sal, the owner are all very caring and nice. Every teacher has been amazing. You can tell that this is not just a job or business to them, they genuinely care about the students and treat them like family. They are super flexible to your needs as well. There has been multiple occasions where they were able to fit me in for an extra day on very short notice.THANK YOU!!

Quality Faculty

We cannot say enough about the standard of care and quality of staff at this facility. Our experience and the praise for the positive development of our son while in the care of the exceptional people at this school is beyond expression in a single online review. Every single Teacher, Aide, Caretaker and Staff Member we had the pleasure of knowing while our son attended demonstrated a level of professionalism and genuine care for our son which I can easily describe as stellar.

Loving Teachers

My son wasn't always the easiest child, but Goddard continued to work through our struggles. The Goddard family helped him become a great kid who is so ready for Kindergarten! My other son loved going to the preschool program at Goddard. The teachers were loving and patient while the kids played to learn. Thanks Goddard for all you've done for our family. We miss you!

- Mitchell and Lukas's Mother (Preschool Classroom)

Children Prepared Academically and Socially

Sal and his staff have cared for our children for 6 years. Over that time period, his staff has prepared our children for school both academically and socially. I would recommend the Gilbertsville Goddard School to any parents in the area.

Excellent communication with parents and a great curriculum!

Their dedication to the safety and educational curriculum even with the small groups of children. The Owner and New Director of our school ensure their teachers are continuously education and trained in child care to make our child(ren)’s experience a great one and they ensure there is an open line of communication with the parents/families!

- Sierra Mary Morgan and Benjamin's Mother (Preschool Classroom)

Everyone is very friendly and welcoming. My son's teachers genuinely care and I trust he is in good hands while I'm at work. I love getting pictures through out the day and also hearing about his day from his teachers.

- Colin's Mother (Infant Classroom)

I like the security measures the school has to keep our children as safe as possible. It feels like an extended family. The teachers have been so accommodating to the needs of my son.

- Chase's Father (Infant Classroom)

I am very happy with the level of communication we receive. The classroom enviroment , including the daily activities are developmentally appropriate and are fostering Kelken's growth . Kellen's teachers have been amazing with him and me, which make going to work easier because I know he is in excellent hands. Everyone at the school is so friendly and genuinely seems interested and caring towards Kellen which means the world to us.

- Kellen's Mother (Toddler Classroom)

Every teacher in the school is invested in each child. Soon as a child starts, it seems all teachers and staff take the time to meet them. I will hear a Hi! to my son from staff that I don't think he is in much contact with, yet they will know him and others in his class.

- Bruce and Lee's Mother (Toddler Classroom)

The children are taught in a variety of ways, they learn to be creative and think independently, and they are learning life skills that will help them in the future.

- Gwyneth's Mother (Toddler Classroom)

The teachers are amazing!!!! Matthew learns so much and is developing such a personality . I am grateful he has such a great place to spend his days

- Matt's Mother (Pre-K Classroom)

Class room like setting. Education corresponds with Elementary School curriculum.

- Scott's Mother (Before/After School Program)

we like that there is a curriculum that is followed each day and we received reports about what our child learned daily. It allows us to continue the learnings at home. Our daughter seems to really enjoy each day at Goddard.

- Presley and Quinn's Mother (Preschool Classroom)

Educational approach, friendly and supportive staff, clean facility, and communication.

- Riley's Mother (Preschool Classroom)

We can't say enough about the staff and management at the Goddard! They go above and beyond giving wonderful care. Our kids come home smiling everyday and love to tell us about all the fun things they did. It's a great feeling to know that our kids are being cared for with lots of love and positive attention while they are away from home.
