Offering The Best Childhood Preparation for Social and Academic Success.

Ms Dolly, Owner Welcome to our School. My husband Monty and I are the on- site owners at The Goddard School located in Bethlehem. Monty and I live in Bethlehem township about five minutes from the school with our 3 daughters, Angelica, Rhea and Nikita.
We became Goddard parents in 2004 when we found that The Goddard School was the best place where we wanted to send our toddler and preschooler. The Goddard School at Bethlehem opened in 2008 to bring the absolute best in little children's education and care to the Lehigh Valley. My passion was to bring you the same standards and quality in Early Childhood Education and care that I had wanted for our children.
Monty has an MBA from Ballarat University, Australia. Prior to joining Goddard, he was the Founder and CEO of CumulusIQ and Consarete Technologies. I have an MD and was involved with St. Lukes Hospital until recently.
