              Dear Ms. Alisa,
              Francisco and I wanted to stop and truly express our thanks for making our children feel so at comfortable at Goddard and for making Aubrey ,Sienna, and Javier, feel a part of the Goddard family this year. I want to thank you so much for always taking time out to make sure all is well with us, since the girls transferred into the school I can see just how much they have expanded their minds and their hearts. Your staff is exceptional and so welcoming to them, I could tell the first time I met you that my kids needed to be in this school and I wouldnt stop until they were.
              Not only is your staff exceptional but you are to, I know that at times you get overwhelmed and things do not plan out as you would like but you keep your professional composer and warm heart. You go out of your way to make sure everyone is happy and get feedback, The Goddard organization should be proud that they have such a wonderful person representing their name. I would recommend this school 100 times over again.
              Thank you for everything you do and will continue to do for our children. Even when they are out of school I will remind them that Goddard on 70 in Toms River had a HUGE part of how educated they are as well as well rounded and kind hearted.
              Sincerely,
              Nicole and Francisco

              My sons thrive developmentally and emotionally, forming social bonds and an understanding of subjects like problem solving, comprehension, and artistic creativity. I especially love the dedication of the teachers and administration and the above and beyond approach they all take in organizing functions for the kids, maintaining daily activities, and in cultivating relationships among students, parents, and staff. The school is always clean, safe, happy, and full of positive energy. The students all seem to thrive and are really able to grow from the FLEX curriculum featured at Goddard. Directors Alisa, Jess and Lauren are beyond wonderful, always providing parents with the peace of mind that their children would constantly and consistently receive stable, safe, and educational care. This is a first rate school for early childhood development!

              The Goddard School at 255 route 70 in Toms River is absolutely amazing. My son has been attending this school since he has been 7 weeks old. My son is now three years old and his social, emotional and cognitive skills that he has learned will being at the Goddard School are beyond amazing. The daily electronic reports and pictures my husband and I get each day is awesome. We are able to see what our son is learning and able to share the pictures with our families. This school feels like a second family to us. There is a lot of family events that we enjoy attending. Our two favorite events the school offers is their end of the summer family barbecue and singing the National Anthem at the Blue claws Stadium. The teachers at this school have so much enthusiasm and love teaching the children. Every day my son comes home and tells us how much his loves his Ms. Katie and Ms. Ali. It is great to know my son is well taken care of when we are working. We would definitely recommend this school!

              Jamie was rude over the phone, not helpful and I would never send my children to a school that was so unkind upon recieving a phone call about a perspective family. My advice....look else where.

              After checking out many schools in the area, including other Goddard Schools in other locations, I am lucky to have found the Goddard School at Toms River II. Although it is relatively expensive, it's not the most expensive by far...and I think what my child has gotten out of his time there more than makes up for the tuition (and they can accommodate special schedules. Not just a real curriculum that teaches out of play time, but special guests and events that rival some kids birthday parties!
              In addition, the staff has readily accommodated changes in my work schedule (early mornings and late afternoon/evenings), often at the last minute, which I am truly thankful for.
              The staff is exemplary and the kids actually love being there. (I often had to drag my 3-yr old out of class every afternoon!) It is refreshing to see teachers in action that obviously love their job and love being with the little ones.
              You won't find a better school than this one!

              I highly recommend The Goddard School located at 255 Highway 70 in Toms River. Right from the very start when we went for a tour, we were very happy with the friendly, welcoming attitude of not only Dana Chibarro (owner), but her entire staff as well. One thing that especially stood out was how very clean, bright and cheery it was. The walls were decorated with the childrens artwork, and there was also a designated place for parents to see any children's product-related safety recalls (toys, cribs, etc).
              The transfer from our old day care center to The Goddard School was better than expected as well. The teachers really care for the kids here and it shows wonderfully. We had no problem transitioning our two boys, ages 4 and 2 into their new environments; they both took to it right away and continue to enjoy it presently.
              If you are looking for a day care that is much more than just a day-time babysitter, you will also find that the learning environment here is of much higher quality than many others as well. All around, we are very happy with everything that Dana and The Goddard School provides and would highly recommend her and her school to anyone looking.

              When we visited Goddard, I was impressed with the facilities and friendly staff. We found it immaculate and filled with all of the curriculum supplies needed to support a wonderful classroom experience. The joy we witnessed as the staff was in full swing working with their classes on an ordinary day made us feel this was the place for our son. The school was filled with displays of the proud accomplishments of its' young students. Now that we have been enrolled for several months, the teachers are all so warm and caring to my son. He loves coming to school and participating in the many extras that Goddard offers. ..... I never expected this level of excellence Goddard strives for and reaches each day. Megan Meyer.
