My son's teachers are amazing. The actual staff are wonderful and he's made a lot of friends there. Unfortunately, the Administration is disorganized. They don't do well with monthly payments and their accounting is terrible. I pulled my son out because of bad accounting.

My son started 3 years ago and my daughter 18 months ago and we love this school. Their teachers are outstanding and the management team and owner are involved every day and greet my family warmly.We enjoy reading the daily email updates from the teachers about what our kids learned and getting pictures during the day - we send some of the pictures to our out of town family members.We looked at several other nearby schools but none compare to this school. We couldn't be happier with our decision to enroll at the State Bridge Road Goddard School.
I went on a tour with the owner of the school. It was the most pathetic tour I have experienced. First of all, Tom Barone is a business man, he is not a passionate educator. We walked around the school and into some of the classrooms. The staff looked miserable and over worked. The classrooms were packed some had as many as 14 children with only 2 staff members. All of the staff looked like they were putting on an act. They barley made eye contact with Mr. Barone while he tried to make small talk with them. The children in the classroom all jumped out of their seats and ran to Mr. Barone calling him "Daddy" and hung on his legs. The man is a phony. I have also looked through previous reviews and saw that there is a high staff turnover rate. Clearly the staff isn't happy there. I got bad feeling before I even entered the school as I walked past the owners freshly polished Acura parked in the front of the building.
"Best of the Best" That's how i describe the team and curriculum at Creme. My wife and I are more than pleased with the exciting and nurturing environment that Creme provides for our son. Throughout the day, he's rotated through different rooms and activities that challenge him. We're pretty sure he'll be more than ready for elementary school as long as he has Creme in his corner.
As a new Creme parent, my husband and I were overjoyed to find such a caring environment and excellent curriculum. The facilities are impeccable, and the teachers are incredibly supportive. We are very impressed with the language options available (sign and Spanish) as well as the creative outlets. We truly believe our daughter will be very well prepared for elementary school.
I have 2 daughters at The Goddard School and we are very pleased. The entire staff is very nice and things are uber organized. I feel comforted with the level of security (there's a code to get into the lobby from the outside as well as facial recognition to get into the main building from the lobby). We get daily reports of their activities via email and one of the teachers even sends me pictures of my daughter as she participates in various activities throughout the day. I was a little unsure about the fact that there is artifical grass outside however this has turned into a benefit because the kids get the "feel" of grass without the stains! :)In the spirit of providing a balanced review, a couple of cons are: 1. Cost - It's not the least expensive place but we visited several in the area and it seemed to be the cleanest and most organized. Ultimately you get what you pay for and I am very happy with our decision2. Lunches aren't included in tuition - You have the option to bring lunch or order lunch from a separate companyLastly, the owner is very involved and is onsite every day. He knows everyone's name and they all genuinely care about the kids.
Moved our daughter and saved quite a bit of money. However, we feel we're actually getting a better education, experience, community for her. The teaching staff and personal chef are great. I would highly recommend.
