The Goddard School in Forked River is the best preschool in Ocean County! My two children, now 4 and 8, have attended this school since it opened. My son was also enrolled in their private kindergarten class. As infants, they were well taken care of, always clean and dry. The staff are well educated, compassionate and kind towards the children. I love the continuum of care as the children transition from room to room as they develop, and the strong leadership. The owner who is always cheerful and available for any additonal resources, comments or concerns. The facility is immaculate and my children are rarely ill. My son was well prepared and is presently in the enrichment program at the local elementary school. We credit the curricululm and wonderful staff for his ongoing success! My daughter is following in his footsteps and we enrolled her in their private kindergarten class. The ratio is significantly better than the local preschools and elementary schools and the individualized attention is wonderful! These are the formative years and it is worth the investment in your child!

I commend the Forked River Goddard School for providing individual attention to each child. As many parents and educators know, each child develops emotionally, physically, and mentally at different rates. At the Forked River Goddard School, the teachers, as well as the owners, take into account the unique and specific level of development in each child. In addition, the children are educated in an atmosphere that is comfortable and loving. Thank you for your dedication to each child in your program! Always, Barb Fichter

My daughter has been going here since she was 6 weeks old. The teachers here are amazing. Each one cared and loved my child as if the were their very own. My daughter, now almost 3 knows Spanish, sign language, all her letters, colors and shapes, and uses her manners often! No other school in the area can compare to the love and care you get here not only from the teachers but administration and owners too.

Love, love, love this school! My son, now 3 couldn't be happier and is learning lots in a comfortable, appropriate environment. The staff is always available to answer questions and helped our son make a seamless transition to preschool. Clean, safe, and inviting!

I highly recommend this school. My daughters, now 4 and 2, have been going to this school since they were six months old. The teachers are amazing and the girls adore them. The administration is excellent, they are very well organized and the school is spotless. I couldn't be happier with the safe, friendly, and fun environment that they provide for my children.

My daughter has been attending this school since she was 2 years old. The teachers are wonderful. The school is safe and clean. My daughter was provided with an excellent preschool education which I truly believe has helped her excel in her current elementary school. I recommend the Goddard School of Forked River to anyone who wants their children to get the best of care!!!

I would HIGHLY recommend The Goddard School to anyone looking for high level care and learning for their child. My 2 children ages 1 and 4 are students there and although tuition is slightly higher then the surrounding preschools in the area, it's worth every cent. The care and attention that my children get is over the top. I have a great deal of comfort knowing they're in wonderful hands! They have learned so much in the past year, I can not even compare their knowledge to other children their own ages, they're way above the average. The owners are onsite every day and are fully involved in everything. I cannot stress the compassion, involvement and personal attention my kids get! Almost every teacher in the school knows both of my sons, that is how involved the entire staff is. I'll be sad to see them move on beyond Goddard. If I could give 10 stars, I would!
