Offering The Best Childhood Preparation for Social and Academic Success.

Our teachers blend the highest standards in early childhood development with nurturing care.

Miss Wendy and Leslie, Owners Wendy and Leslie come from diverse backgrounds in finance, law and business management. They began their relationship with Goddard when the youngest of Leslie's two children attended The Goddard School in Braintree, MA. It was his love of learning and rock-solid foundation that drove them to pursue a Goddard School of their own.

As a mother and grandmother, Wendy recognizes the importance of a safe and nurturing learning environment. She chose Goddard’s outstanding program and is committed to providing the highest quality preschool experience to the children in this community.

Cara, Director I have worked with children for the last twenty plus years. I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology with a minor in Social Work from Salem State University. Upon graduation, I was employed at a childcare center where I was immersed in infant care. This position fueled my desire to learn all aspects of early childhood development. I worked in both toddler and preschool classrooms before being promoted to assistant director. As Director I continue my life education through the eyes of children every day.

My passion is helping children learn through play while encouraging them to develop their individual interests. My favorite area in the classroom is dramatic play. I love watching the children develop their creativity and social skills.

I am thrilled to be the Director here at The Goddard School and look forward to growing relationships and sharing memories with our families.
