The Goddard School of Forked River is more than a warm and nurturing place. It's more than a great education for your child. It's peace of mind.
Meet Toni Ann
Toni Ann Eckerson - Hello! I am the proud owner of The Goddard School® located in Forked River New Jersey! I am an on-site owner who gives 110% to all of our children, parents and faculty. We strive for excellence in early childhood development and want to provide only the best in terms of health and safety and curriculum. I have over 25 years of experience as a teacher, director and owner in Early Childhood Education. My degree is in Psychology with a Minor in Musical Theater and I also have three children of my own, who are all Goddard Graduates!
Welcome! We’re committed to your child’s health, safety and education, which is why we provide children with safe and healthy learning environments at our School.
Every member of the Goddard faculty has special, often extraordinary, gifts they share with their students. When a child comes home happy and can't wait to see their teacher the next day, tell us about it. Take this moment to celebrate your child's teachers!
We work tirelessly to ensure children thrive in a healthy, safe and warm environment. Within this secure and nurturing environment, children can discover their unique gifts.
Our programs go beyond academics and help children develop important social-emotional skills like kindness, empathy, responsible decision making and more.
In our classrooms, creativity and curiosity blossom as children discover the wonder of learning. Through fun learning experiences (F.L.EX.®), your child will develop academic and social-emotional skills that will help them feel ready to take on the world.
