Offering The Best Childhood Preparation for Social and Academic Success.

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

Tana, Owner On site Owner- Ms. Tana holds a Bachelor of Science from SDSU. She and her husband, Monish, are the parents of two young children. Both are being guided by professional teachers here at the Goddard School, as well as at another Goddard School close by, prior to our school being completed. Starting our own family is what brought us to a Goddard School as parents. A love for family and raising our two children brought us to the journey of opening our own Goddard School. As parents, we love the lifelong love of learning that is being instilled into our children, in a safe, nurturing and fun environment. We also love being able to provide this to other families as well.
