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

Katy, Owner Ms. Katy is the on-site owner and operator of the brand new Goddard School of Noblesville. She saw her daughter thrive at the Goddard School in Carmel (City Center) and wanted other children and families to have that same experience. After spending 10 years at the non-profit organization, Outside the Box, Katy saw there was a need for a high-quality early childhood education program that provides a play-based learning experience in a nurturing environment in Noblesville. She decided to partner with the on-site owner of the Carmel (City Center) School, Megan Greek, and expand the brand name in the Indianapolis area. Katy’s daughter, Winnie, will be among the students who attend the Goddard School of Noblesville.

Katy wants each child to fall in love with learning and to know how deeply they are cared for by the faculty and staff who have the privilege of being a part of their lives during their time at our school. It is her goal that children will graduate from The Goddard School with a passion for making a positive impact on the world and with the confidence to know how to do so.
