Forked River Reviews & Recognition

The love and commitment of our Goddard families inspires us every day. To help make each child’s learning experiences the best they can be, we are always happy to listen when parents share their expectations. Here’s what our families have to say.

Great safety, security, cleanliness.

Alexander's Mother

Frequent feedback & photos, interactive activities & events for kids & families, and nost importantly that my daughter is excited to go everyday

Cora's Mother

Pre-K Classroom

My children are not only cared for but they are taught something. Although my children only go 3 days per week, I feel they will be more prepared for early years of school more than a child who has not attended a Goddard School. The teachers also truly care about my children’s development. It’s not just a job to most of them, it’s a responsibility.

Declan & John's Father

Preschool Classroom

We feel the teachers are very involved with the children. My daughter comes home everyday excited from school. Always talking about each student and what the teacher did for the day.

Justin & Daniella's Father

Toddler Classroom

I love all the staff and teachers. They all seem very organized, patient, knowledgeable, and passionate about our children and their job. I feel that my daughter is in a safe and great learning environment when she is at school. She enjoys her time there and feels comfortable with everyone there.

Michael's Mother

Toddler Classroom

Our daughter has been to multiple private day cares. The Goddard School is by far the most interactive and has provided the best learning environment. Because of this and the wonderful teachers, I have recommended the Goddard School to multiple people over the last three years.

Violet's Father

Kindergarten Classroom

The Goddard School is extremely organized, professional, and teaches kids everything they need to know and more to prepare them for kindergarden and beyond! The teachers are great, the classrooms are perfect, and the staff greets everyone with a smile.

Nicholas & Landon's Father

Goddard Graduate

The Goddard school continues to separate itself from the others in the area by providing consistent exceptional service! Both of our children attend the school and we have really noticed a difference in their overall level of confidence. They have learned so much in such a short time and we truly thank the teachers as well as the owners and staff for providing our area with such an amazing school! Thanks Goddard!!

Mollie & Mia's Mother

The care provided by my son's first steps teachers. I truly believe they care for him like he was their own. They also work on age appropriate skills and activities daily, which is evident in my sons social progress in just the short few weeks he has been attending.
