Noel, Owner Hi I'm Mr. Noel! I have been the proud owner of The Goddard School of Woodbridge, NJ since June 1, 2000. After receiving a B.A in Business Management from The University of Las Vegas Nevada I managed restaurants in New York City. I became interested in Early Childhood Education after my mother opened The Goddard School in Hazlet, NJ. Once I saw how much she enjoyed being apart of the education of young children, I knew this was the change I was looking for. I believe Early Childhood Education is the foundation of a child's future. My favorite thing at the end of each day is when the children come visit for a snack! I love hearing about their day and the amazing things that go on in the classrooms.
