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

Safe and Secure

I love the security aspect, not anyone could just walk in. Communication is great between owners, teachers, and staff on upcoming events and closings. I love my daughter's teacher Miss Jessica, she's amazing. I feel my daughter is in great care with Miss Jessica. She is very smart, kind, and compassionate. I truly appreciate her! Additionally all staff is friendly, when you walk in all you see is smiles,they ask how you are doing, etc. I am 100% completely satisfied with the School.

I like the family atmosphere and changes in the curriculum like chess at 3...the STEM programs..outdoor the family involvement with seasonal events. I always feel like my child is not just safe and well cared for but loved.

- Claire's Mother (Preschool Classroom)

Very family friendly. The teachers go above and beyond to make it feel like your leaving your child with a family member. The great communication between parents and teachers; it’s one of the best. All around great people

I Really Love This School.

I really love this school. After the new management, there had been loads of changes in the teaching methods and learning systems. My elder son is in Pre-K and never wanna Miss a single day. The credit goes to Ms.Lisa for motivating the children by finding their strengths and weaknesses. Am definitely putting my second son in the preschool next year for sure.My best wishes Usha Ravichandran

I do like the Newark location of the Goddard School. The new management team have done a wonderful job In upgarding the cosmetics of the building, hosting events, making it safe, and engaging "us" as parents more!

Kindergarten -Class Size is Important!

The variety of learning styles that are used are wonderful. The small class size allowed for so much one on one time with my daughter. She is a wonderful reader and I feel it is because of the individual attention she was able to receive.

- Emily's Mother (Kindergarten Classroom)

Pre-School - Everything!

Kindergarten Encourages Curiosity and Creative Skills

Teachers and staff genuinely care about the children, and I believe they take their role very seriously. My son comes home from school happy and I feel like his curiousity and creativity are nurtured every day.

- John and Juliette's Mother (Kindergarten Classroom)

Kindergarten Program - Individualized Attention!

I like that there is a great deal of structure but that you still treat each child as an individual. My son has grown and learned so much, and he's only been there 7 months!

- Henry's Mother (Kindergarten Classroom)

Kindergarten - Well-rounded Curriculum

Focus on different developmental activities. Provide an ever changing variety of topics and activites for kids to experience at different levels.

- Victoria and Alexander's Father (Kindergarten Classroom)

Curriculum, Faculty Care

Stimulating activities that engage my child/ren on a daily basis. Staff who become an extension of our family while we are at work during the day. I know they care about my baby as much as I do!

Child's Development,

i feel that after switching to the Goddard school my son has excelled with his gross motor skills and his speech and it makes me so happy to see that! His sense of independence has tripled! It's very exciting to see him grow so quickly.

- Jack's Mother (Toddler Classroom)

Faculty, Individual Attention,

The teachers are friendly and hands on. They take the time to work with the children individually if needed. The learning experiences my boys had got them ready for the next step in another school and able to excel in various areas. Thanks for the six years and keep up the great work in the Newark school.

- Charles and Cole's Mother (Goddard Graduate)

Curriculum, Daily Reports

We feel like Goddard uses a very advanced curriculum that we absolutely love. It's so rewarding to have our child come home speaking of all the topics he learned that held his interest so well. I also enjoy the daily reports that are sent home each day. They give us as parents a full synopsis of what our child did so that we can review the day with him at night. The wide range of topics and things our son has learned this past year at Goddard makes me wish I had found this school sooner!

- Vito's Mother (Preschool Classroom)


My kids come home with something new everyday which just shows me how much she is learning on a daily basis.

- Lorelei and Declan's Mother (Junior-K Classroom)

Educational Summer Camp;

Your school keeps kids involved in math/English type activities during summer so that they don't fall behind when school starts again

- Shane's Father (Summer Program)


I like how the teachers treat the children like family. When I am at work, I do not have to worry about the care my son is receiving.
