Newtown 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.

  • I believe Goddard Newtown’s main objective is to provide each child with a solid foundation for learning. They have numerous activities throughout the day and keep parents in the loop. All the teachers are wonderful and love taking care of children.

    Pre-K Classroom

  • We love seeing the posts about what our daughter is doing throughout the day. It’s heartwarming when we drop her off and she wants to jump into Shannon’s arms with a huge smile. Goddard provides her with the stimulation that she can’t get elsewhere. We really like the staff too, great communication between parents and staff.

  • 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.

  • We have only been at the Goddard School of Newtown for about a month and with all of the changes that have been phenomenal. The staff has been very welcoming and warm. I couldn’t ask for more. It was a hard transition for us not meeting our daughters teacher or being able to walk her into her classroom but with open arms they welcomed her like they’ve known her over a lifetime.

    Infant Classroom

  • 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.

    Toddler Classroom

  • 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.

    Sunny's Mother

    Preschool Classroom

  • 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.

    Duncan's Mother

    Benjamin & Lillian's Mother

  • 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.

    Avery & Cody's Father

    Pre-K Classroom

  • 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 & Grace's Mother

    Preschool Classroom

  • 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 & Graham Thomas's Father

    Toddler Classroom

  • 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

  • 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
