              My daughter has been going to the Goddard School since she was 1 years old. She is now 3 1/2. She has grown leaps and bounds since attending Goddard; socially, emotionally and intellectually. The staff is superb. Every classroom has wonderful, intelligent and nurturing teachers and I could not ask for a better environment for my daughter to spend her days.

              I just want to let everyone know my opinion of this Goddard School so I thought I would do this review.
              I am a single Mom with two children, a boy age 3 and a girl age 2. I need to work, obviously, but like many Moms I had to find a safe place for my children. I went to the Goddard School on 520, this one, and I met for a tour. I met with the owner, Carol. The tour was extensive and I got to see the kids interacting with the teachers and Carol. It was amazing. The kids were learning so much. Not just being babysat! They actually learn sign language! I couldn't believe it. The environment is clean and safe. The teachers are so sweet and kind to the children. I was convinced.
              It's been about nine months now and my two children are doing so well. They learn something new every day and I get paperwork showing me what they learned so I can keep up with them, lol.
              Well, the reason I am writing this, again, is to let other Moms know that there truly is day care that is safe and reliable and not just babysitters. I can honestly say that I would recommend this school to any Mom looking to have a great place for her kids to grow and learn. Five stars all the way for this school!

              Superior! Before enrolling my daughter I interviewed over 11 different childcare centers andfrom my first visit I knew this was the right place for my child. Enrolling only reaffirmed that. I was impressed by the lively and colorful presentation of the school, the overall cleanliness as well as the securitymeasures implemented. Over the past few years, I have been most notably impressed with the caregivers. They are sincere, compassionate and genuinely nurturing. Additionally, they have provided me with invaluable advice and suggestions in regard to her growth and development. I wanted to share this as a testimonial of a very ??nervous? first time parent who rests calmly at ease knowing that her child is well taken care of at this school! Alexa's mom

              I can not say enough wonderful things about this school! I've had my daughter attending this school for the past year and I am so impressed with how she has progressed.. The teachers are so wonderful and you can tell they really love to be with each and every child. When I drop off and pick up my daughter I am always greeted with smiles and hellos. A few times I have stood outside the classroom of my daughter and watched the kids play. They all seem so happy. I ask her every day how her day was and she is always so excited telling me what a wonderful day she had. Previous to enrolling my daughter in this Goddard school my daughter was in another school. I had to fight each day with her in order for me to leave her at the school. Since enrollling her in Goddard she doesn't even notice me once she is in the classroom. This takes a weight off of my shoulders and makes each day alot easier to go through. I believe the reason behind the success of the school starts at the top. Carol is a wonderful owner and she truely cares for every child at the school. My daughter, and any other child enrolled in this school, will only benefit from the experience.

              I must say that prior to moving here my daughter attended another childcare and I thought it was fine. Now that I have been at this Goddard School for the past year, I cannot say enough this school. Teachers are all loving and nurturing. School is immaculate. The owner, Carol, is there everyday and has supplied the school with the latest technology and the best staff! We are always greeted with smiles and kind words. This is not just a daycare, but a second home that I am so comfortable bringing and leaving my child at. Since attending my daughter has come out of her shell and has learned so very much. I and my daughter are fortunate to have the opportunity to attend this school!

              My daughter attended the Goddard School on Route 520 in Morganville, NJ for 2 years and I can not say enough good things about the school. My husband and I were overwhelmingly impressed with the professional yet loving nature of the staff, the quality and selection of the programs they offered, the cleanliness of the entire school, and their extended hours. We visited approximately 6 other schools prior to visiting this Goddard School location and were shocked to see what is out there. We were cautious interviewing the schools the second time around, and knew what questions to ask because we had a bad experience with another preschool which ended in a serious emergency room visit. This school was a blessing and our daughter loved it! We walked into this school for a private tour and felt comfortable enough to sign her up the same day! I was very happy with the owner, Carol. She??s a friendly, professional person who takes the time to listen to both the parents and the kids which I felt is important. She was on site every day and truly cares for the welfare of the children. I liked that the parents are kept well informed of daily activities and the child??s eating/napping etc. I cried the first day I left my daughter at school & I cried at their adorable Goddard School graduation ceremony seeing her in her little cap & gown looking all grown up with her friends. This year my daughter is attending kindergarten and although it is a new experience with the bus ride, friends, etc., she is bored reviewing most of what she already knows. I am comforted in the fact that her teacher has already told me that I should recommend advanced classes next year. The growth she??s experienced both socially and academically from the Goddard School will last a lifetime. It has been spectacular! This school truly prepares your child for what??s to follow and WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT. Price was good / hours were good / A+++

              Message from The Goddard School

              Welcome to the award-winning Goddard School® conveniently located on Route 520 (next to TD Bank) in Marlboro, New Jersey. My name is Carol Vargo and I am the on-site owner of the School which opened in January of 2005. Our School is 500' east of Route 9 and 1/8th mile west of Route 18 and within minutes of Englishtown, Manalapan, Old Bridge, Monroe, Colts Neck, Holmdel and Freehold.



              Our focus is to provide each child with a loving, nurturing, caring, safe and secure environment where they will have fun while they are learning through our FLEX Learning Programâ?˘ ("Fun Learning EXperience"). Our program is administered by degreed teachers, many with Master's degrees, is all inclusive and affordable. As the owner, I am at the School each and every day to insure that our school is a "home away from home" for your children.



              We are, once again, the proud recipients of Goddard's most prestigious award, the Circle of Excellence President's Club. We received this award in 2008-2009 and once again in 2009-2010. It is given to the top Schools in the nation that have achieved the highest standards in the areas of Health and Safety, Curriculum, Overall Quality, Occupancy, Appearance, Curriculum Resources, Customer Satisfaction and Business Operations. Additionally, we received the Quality Assurance Award for maintaining the highest standards of quality in 2009 as well as the Health and Safety Award for maintaining the highest standards in health and safety for 2009.



              We accept children from six weeks to six years of age. We also offer full-day private Kindergarten and a summer "camp" program for children up to eight years of age.
