Offering The Best Childhood Preparation for Social and Academic Success.

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

Mrs Priya, Owner Mrs. Priya is excited to bring the nation’s leader in play-based education to the Sanford, Lake Mary, Heathrow community. She is a CPA and MBA who has extensive Accounting and Finance experience at Fortune 500 companies.

Mrs. Priya and her husband Raj live in Lake Mary and have 3 children who are in elementary and middle school. Her daughters attended The Goddard School before they moved to Florida. She saw how they bloomed under the care of nurturing teachers, who encouraged and challenged them to learn life skills and become well rounded individuals who love learning. She was unable to find a similar educational environment in Lake Mary which motivated her to open The Goddard School. She wants all children to have a quality preschool environment where they can develop into joyful, confident learners who are successful and have a lifelong love of learning.
