School Reviews

The Goddard School in Princeton has provided the perfect environment for our 2.5 year old son to grow, learn, and explore new things. The teachers and staff are truly wonderful...they are always so understanding and accomdating to our needs. They are very approachable and willing to go above and beyond to care for their students and make them feel comfortable. The teachers are genuine and very nurturing. One of my favorite aspects about the Goddard School is the feeling of community that is shared between the staff, teachers, parents, and students. They are continuously making efforts to create events for the children and families...always encouraging family involvement. Overall, would suggest the Goddard School in the Princeton to anyone. We are very happy with the decision we made.
