I visited 5 schools before enrolling my daughter at the Goddard School on Schanck Road, Freehold. Heidi, owner, took the time to answer all my questions ranging from the program, tuition, my daughter’s allergies, to the school’s emergency evacuation plans. The program focuses on STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics) learning with fun, hands-on, and group activities. I was excited that my daughter will be learning these subjects before kindergarten and that she won’t be at home playing with the iPad and watching T.V. all day.I felt very safe leaving my daughter at this location. The front door is always locked with an electronic keypad. There are two offices near the front door to monitor people entering and leaving the front door. There are exterior security cameras and the building is up-to-date with a fire sprinkler system.Heidi and her staff are always available to answer any concerns. As long as they are in and available, you can reach out to them without making an appointment. This came in handy when I had a personal situation that affected my daughter. Heidi listened and gave me options to work with my family. At this point, Heidi further proved to me that she is more than just a franchise owner. She genuinely loves kids and wants them to succeed.
Both of my sons attend The Goddard School on Schanck Road in Freehold (one in the infant room and one in pre-K). We LOVE it. The staff are very responsive and happy to be there, the activities are age appropriate and engaging, the school is safe, fun, and welcoming to all. We receive updates on both boys throughout the day over email, and staff never hesitate to call us if something is needed or they have any concerns. I can't recommend this school highly enough! THE BEST!
