Mrs Pallavi, Owner Mrs Pallavi, Owner (Mrs Pal)

I am excited to be the on-site owner of The Goddard School of Burlington. I have a bachelor’s degree in Management Information System from Thomas Edison State College and worked in the health care industry for 25 years. As a mother of three, I believe that all families want a safe, healthy, nurturing environment with an educational focus for their children.

My husband, Tushar graduated from NJIT with a master’s degree in Engineering. Although he enjoys being an engineer his father was a school principal and his mother was a teacher so Tushar grew up with a love for education and we are both so very proud to be able to carry on their love of teaching.

It has always been a dream of ours to open a childcare center and we are honored to be part of the Goddard school systems. We look forward to working with all the great families in Burlington County and invite you to our school to learn more about our vision and the Goddard philosophy.
