My son has attended Cherry Lane since he was a toddler. He is now 5, and graduating out. He was always welcomed by an amazing team of teachers that knew him personally, and really cared about him. The administrative staff was easy to work with because they legitimately cared about my child and his development beyond their learning center. I highly recommend cherry lane. It’s fun, safe, professional, and personable environment offered us exactly what we were looking for when we were shopping for day care in our area. We will miss them👍

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!
My son has been enrolled at Cherry Lane for 4 1/2 years and I am very pleased. Miss Cheri, Miss Lisa and the teachers truly care about the kids and continue to engage them long after they have moved up. He's made some great friends too! It will be a sad day when my son leaves to enter public school.
We love The Learning Experience! My 2 year old son is enrolled and has learned so much since he started in September. Everyone is so nice and you can tell they really care about, and truly enjoy the children. My son is very happy here... which makes me very happy as well :)
This school is great! The staff is very friendly and great with my younger sister. Out of all the daycares i went to , this one is very educational and neat. My younger sister can't stop talking about how fun she had that day with her new friends.
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.
This school is phenomenal! Both of my children attend, my 3 year-old attends Pre-School and my autistic, almost-six year-old attends Kindergarten, both of my children attend summer camp as well; and I have never seen them happier. The Owner and her family of teachers and assistants go above and beyond what is required to include not only parents, but, grandparents, friends, etc. in school and community activities. The entire staff takes a personal interest in my children and especially my autistic child's growth and development, catering specific areas of his program to fit his needs. A five-star rating doesn't really do the Peppermint Tree justice.
