The Goddard School- Ridge Road

NC State established a partnership in 2019 with The Goddard School, 1215 Ridge Road, Raleigh, NC 27605 to increase access and capacity to quality child care. While we value this partnership, we are no longer providing the reimbursement of ½ month deposit and registration fees.The Goddard School continues to be a great resource for families. However, our focus of funding has shifted to our primary tuition subsidy benefits provider, Bright Horizons.

Benefits of this Provider Partnership:

  • This provider is located in very close proximity (less than 2 miles) to the NC State campus.
  • This is a new four-star facility that provides quality child care for children ages infants to 6 years old.  
  • Priority consideration has been given to eligible NC State families for current and future child care openings that become available at this center’s location. This will increase opportunities for greater access to child care in the downtown Raleigh area for our eligible NC State families.


  • Full-time Faculty, Staff, and PostDoc Employees are eligible for this benefit.
  • An employee’s classification must be EHRA, SHRA, or PostDoc and the employee must be at .75FTE or greater equivalency on a 9 month or greater reoccurring contract basis.
  • Students, including graduate students, are not eligible for this benefit but may participate in our discount providers program.


  • This Goddard School location will offer a 5 percent discount on standard tuition for NC State families enrolling at the center before September 1, 2024.
  • The Goddard School child care tuition rates may be subject to change, at their discretion. Please contact The Goddard School directly for their current tuition rates.
