What our parents say

Highly Recommend

We’ve had our 3 kids at Goddard School for the past 7 years. No matter which room they’ve been in, or which teacher they’ve had; we have always been extremely happy with the care provided. Additionally, owners and managers are always available to talk, and have been incredibly flexible when we’ve had to change schedules over the years. Overall, we would highly recommend.

- Alex, Zachary and Elise's Father (Pre-K Classroom)

Best Decision

Choosing Goddard over other schools in the area was the best decision we've made for our daughter. We came to Goddard when she was only 6 months old and couldn't be more pleased! The staff are super friendly and kind to everyone. We love getting daily pictures and videos to see what she is learning. There are many days when she doesn't want to leave school because she's having so much fun! I recommend Goddard to everyone I meet who is looking for quality care and education!

- Lauren's Mother (Toddler Classroom)

Learning Constantly

Our daughter has been at Goddard for a little over a year. The staff, from the front desk to the teachers, made going back to work a smooth process for both me and my daughter. They are always smiling and willing to help. Our daughter loves going there. The curriculum keeps her occupied and learning constantly! Definitely recommend Goddard to anyone asking!

- Keira's Mother (Toddler Classroom)

Best Decision

We went from having a full time nanny to Goddard, so we were nervous about the change, to say the least! However the attentiveness, professionalism, and immense love for our kids, was evident immediately. I can’t say enough good things about the teachers. They are fantastic!! It’s impressive and reassuring as a mom to see how much they are welcomed each day. My kids light up just entering the building. What more could you ask for?! ?? Best decision.

- Addison, Grayson and Olivia's Mother (Pre-K Classroom)

Peace of Mind

First and foremost... peace of mind knowing my son is in the safest environment surrounded by educated, caring and loving staff. From the owner all the way to the volunteer helpers, every member of staff is outstanding. The education and life skills being taught are evident in the progress my son has displayed.

Learning Through Fun

I can only comment on the Goddard in Swedesboro, NJ. The Owner was on site all the time and accessible. I feel like he really cares about the place and the kids. The Directors understand what it's like to be a mom leaving your kids everyday, and the teachers have all been amazing, loving, and able to keep the kids learning through fun.

Happy & Engaging Environment

Truly Care

The teachers and staff are the best! They truly care about the kids. My son has learned so much and really enjoys going every day. I also love that our school has made a bunch of updates this flooring, nap cots, playground and fence. It's nice to see that our money is continuing to improve the facility.

Safe Environment

It's a great (and safe) environment for my child to learn how to socialize, and for her to get a head start on her education.

The Goddard School's curriculum is broad-based and is taught to students in a caring, safe, nurturing, and fun environment. They learn about their world in ways that are interesting to them and developmentally appropriate, resulting in a love of learning. As an educator myself, I am thoroughly impressed with the Goddard School's educational services.
