Kristen, Owner I’m a working mother of 2 young children with a passion for Early Childhood Education. Since they were infants, I've seen the difference that high-quality, early childcare has made in preparing my children for school and life. Owning a Goddard School allows me to bring my corporate experience in marketing and consulting to an early childhood environment. I look forward to providing your family with a high quality, joyful childcare experience!
