Feels like Family

The Goddard School at Newtown feels like family. When I drop my daughter off I know she is getting the best care. All her teachers have been compassionate and loving, I feel like they treat my daughter like they would thier own child. The staff genuinely care about each child. My daughter has learned so much as well, she continues to amaze us at what she is learning at school.

Loving and Caring

I am so thankful for my daughter’s teachers and the level of love and care dedicated to her education and safety on a daily basis. She is constantly singing her favorite songs, tells us all about her friends, her favorite teachers, and asks us to do yoga with her to show us what she can do! She has learned so much and thrives each day at Goddard Newtown.

Structured Learning Environment

I love that they enforce a curriculum even for the little ones. Some centers feel more like they are babysitting with not a lot of structure. The entire staff works hard and it shows. Thank you for all that you do.

Amazing Program

I could not possibly be happier with the care, education and most importantly, the love that my son receives at The Goddard School in Newtown. Miss Natalie, Miss Maria and the rest of the faculty go above and beyond to make parents and children feel comfortable. Each day when I leave my son in their care I know he will not only be loved and cared for but given the educational foundation he needs to develop a lifelong love of learning.

Faculty genuinely cares!

The people there seem to genuinely care for our child and she loves to go to school. I love the daily updates and being able to discuss it with her at home. Plus the photos throughout the day constantly remind me how much fun she is having while we are at work.

Positive Learning Enviornment

Unbelievably positive learning environment for young children. I am impressed on a daily basis with how the staff help the children understand and use language, read books, and add to their vocabulary. The teachers also successfully demonstrate positive interaction for their students. The school overall is stellar with their health and safety practices. I would highly recommend the Goddard school at Newtown to anyone looking to put their babies and young children into daycare.

- Madelyn and Grace's Mother (Preschool Classroom)

Positive learning experiences!

I really appreciate the people, structure, and curriculum that all go beyond basic child care to focus on positive experiences, exposure to new things, and learning about their world.

- Penelope and Graham Thomas's Father (Toddler Classroom)

Individualized Attention

I love how closely the teachers work with every child and know each of the different personalities they have. They know the problem areas that need to be worked on and follow through with helping the child to succeed.

- Demetrius's Mother (Preschool Classroom)


They look out for the needs of each individual child. My son needed an in- class assistant. The County was supposed to provide this person, but did not have the staff to do so. After months of waiting, the owner took it upon herself to hire someone to be my son's assistant, and get reimbursed by the County. He is thriving at Goddard School.

- Dale's Mother (Kindergarten Classroom)

Amazingly nurturing, kind, professional and loving!

The people, first and foremost. Everyone has been amazingly nurturing, kind, professional and loving to Logan and our family. We also love the format and curriculum at the Goddard School. We know he's having fun and learning every day. We appreciate how balanced and complete the approach to education is, even for someone as young as Logan.

- Logan's Mother (Toddler Classroom)

Increased independence

I see changes in my son every day. All for the better. He has only been in school for about 1.5 months, and his verbal expression and confidence in his own capabilities have greatly improved. He is also showing increased independence.

- Dale's Mother (Pre-K Classroom)

Happy teachers!

All the teachers seem genuinely happy to be at Goddard and have a love for children. The teachers are also very attentive to the needs of our child.

Always kept informed

The teachers are great and I love how we are always informed of what is happening at the school. Getting pictures of my little one during the day is also great! I can see that she is enjoying her day.

Everyone is so caring of the kids - across all levels - you can just see that the focus is all about the kids.

- Samantha's Mother (Toddler Classroom)

Great job all around!

Our son has been in the infant room for just a little over one month now. But so far, everyone has been very nice and helpful toward us, and caring toward our son. We can see that they definitely take pride in what they do each day and we are thrilled to see the progress our son has made! Great job all around!
