Kate, Owner Hello, my name is Kate Joseph and I am the owner of The Goddard School located in Cincinnati on Red Bank Expressway. I live in Cincinnati with my husband and four children, three of which attend The Goddard School. I opened the school five years ago and am happy to be able to provide an outstanding preschool experience to the children in this community. I have one child that graduated from The Goddard School and my other children are currently enrolled, so I recognize the importance of talented teachers and a safe and nurturing learning environment.
