Ms Samantha, Owner
Samantha is the owner of The Goddard Schools in Derry and Nashua NH. She earned a Bachelor’s degree from the University of New Hampshire in Durham and a Master’s degree in Business from Bentley College in Waltham, Massachusetts. She is also a Goddard parent; her older son attended the Nashua School for several years before she became a school owner herself. Now, her youngest son attends our school. “I love The Goddard School and the peace of mind that I had when my son attended. It's not just a child care or a 'day care', it's a safe and nurturing preschool for educating all young children. I enjoy sharing those great experiences with the families in Nashua!”
