Firas & Sally, Owners Thank you for visiting! We are a brother and sister team and we are the proud owners of The Goddard School in Weston. Firas received a Masters in Business Management from Northeastern University, while Sally received a Bachelor of Arts in Economics from Wheaton College, MA. We are both involved in our communities and enjoy traveling, reading, sports, the outdoors, and spending time with our families. As residents of the area for over 15 years, we are proud to offer the opportunity for children to grow through exploration and hands-on learning in our own community.

We recognize the importance of a safe and nurturing learning environment, which is why we chose The Goddard School. Growing up, education played an integral part of our lives. Our parents sent us to great schools that provided us with a solid, well-rounded education and helped foster a love for learning. We are excited and proud to be a part of The Goddard School and to be able to bring to the community the same, high caliber of education within the highest quality preschool experience.
