Have been sending my kid to Goddard Hazlet NJ for the past 2 years and I do not have a single complaint. My daughter absolutely loves it. Special mention goes out to the teachers and the owners. Good job guys, you are the best. Keep up the good work.

My two sons have been at this school for some time since moving to the Middletown area. Without a doubt, both have learned, grown, and developed in ways that could not have happened had it not been for the attentive, caring, structured, and education focused curriculum that the Goddard in Hazlet provides. Almost immediately we noticed the development. Not only is the environment safe, fun, and structured for the kids but the instructors genuinely care about each child. This is evident right away and it's heart warming to see that to each person at the Hazlet Goddard, every child's social and educational development is important. I believe that our kids have been treated like royalty, that their educational well being was paramount, and that the affection and pride in my kids' development was genuine but I also believe that each and every person at the Hazlet Goddard wouldn't have it any other way. The facilities, equipment, and technology used to further enhance our children's learning are second to none. Not only have I not seen this elsewhere but the owners are keen to keep ahead of the educational curve. I strongly recommend this school

I highly recommend The Goddard School of Hazlet. Disappointed with another school in a neighboring town, my wife and I were quite careful where we placed our child next. The owners (Ms. Julie, Mr. Doug, & Ms. Pat) set the children s welfare and development as their top priorities. They are constantly introducing new programs to advance and accelerate the children s development. That s partly why my oldest child is in the highest reading and math classes at school. (Parents played a part in that too.) They won t sacrifice the children s welfare for their own gain. We are so pleased and trust them so much that our youngest child now attends. Of course, the school wouldn t be much of a school without the teachers (Ms. Cam, Ms. Bobbie, Ms. Lola, and others) who are devoted, patient, and caring nurturers- genuinely concerned with the children s development. My only issue is they don t offer karate, which significantly helps develop a child s athleticism, confidence, and discipline while making sure they learn to handle themselves. Regardless, it s the best school around! For your child's (or children's sake) you d be wise to at least visit the school before making your decision.

A great school. I had my daughter enrolled at 3 months of age and she will leave in a few months to start Kindergarten. The teacher/student ratio is good, the teachers truly get to know your child and I drop her off each morning confident that she will have fun and have a great educational experience. Communication is good and teacher turnover is extremely low - in fact my daughter still stops by the infant room to visit her teacher. I would highly recommend it, worth the higher cost.

This is the best preschool in the area. With over 125 children it's amazing it still feels like I'm leaving my child with a relative. The teachers are second to none. It's been there 13 years and still going strong!

We are very happy with this Goddard and our daughter (2) is excelling. We've been thrilled with all her teachers(6), they execute the curriculum well and often use positive reinforcement for discipline. They introduced sign-language for pre-verbal children, I wish they were a bit more dillegent about it. Communication with parents is very good and often individualized. They are better than we are about knowing what is age appropriate behavior: our daughter began counting at 22m, she walks backwards(19m) and loves throwing out garbage. Nice perks include: babysitting nights, some Saturday sing-alongs and they just did a parent/child cookie decorating event. You pack meals. School ends at 6. Good student/teacher ratios. Ill children are removed from class and toys are well cleaned. They bring in good special programs. When we show up to pick up our daughter, she brings us into her activities, rather than rushing to leave. This wasn't the case at a previous
