I fell in love with everyone and the school's culture immediately during my tour. It is also very clean! I trust and love all of my children's teachers. I love that I get an update every day in an email about both of my children with a picture of them, information on what and how much they ate, when they went to the bathroom, when and how long they napped, what they did throughout the day, etc. I also love the structure that they are given. This isn't just a preschool with any teacher looking to make a buck. It's a family that all genuinely love what they do that truly love everyone's child. My children LOVE going to school! I highly recommend this school and I trust everyone there with my life. There is nothing like the peace of mind I get when I drop my children off for the day and know that they are safe. I couldn't ask for anything more. Thank you for not only doing all that you do, but also for your kindness, generosity, love, and for providing my children with a second home.

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!

Everyone is very upbeat and friendly and courteous. We appreciate the standard of excellence you work toward. We believe the best place for a child to be is at home with their Mom but if that is not possible, Goddard is the best daycare facility we have had the pleasure of dealing with.

In the past, they were under old management, but now that the new management has taken over in the last couple of years, they are stellar!

The staff was also quite responsive to our needs as foster parents. We so appreciate their willingness to help!



The Goddard School of Tom Rive...

The Goddard School of Tom River has a friendly and educated staff. The facility is immaculate and the academic program is excellent. I have three children is this school, every day I am provided a daily report of exacty what activities they ve engaged in and what they learned. Goddard always finds creative ways to make learning fun! The teachers are so caring and my children have really bonded with them. The director Michele Calandrillo is very organized and helpful with any issues or concerns that arise throughout the year.



do not take your child here

this place has poor management they do not treat anyone as an equal the director plays games on teh computer all day when she should be working it is hooribly run and i would never send my child there

When we visited Goddard (at 255 Route 70), 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 the level of excellence Goddard strives for and reaches each day. Megan Meyer.
