Meet  Leila

Meet Leila

Hello, my name is Leila and my husband Travis and I are the proud owners of The Goddard School in Bentonville, Arkansas. I graduated with a Bachelors in Graphic Design and Marketing from John Brown University. Prior to owning The Goddard School of Bentonville, I worked for DaySpring Cards, a division of Hallmark, as a Designer and Art Director. After becoming a mom to our first daughter (and TWINS a few years later!) I chose to leave the full-time work environment and start my own freelance design business, all while balancing the wild, amazing job that is motherhood. During those formative preschool years with my own young children, I learned that having support as a parent, as well as incredible early educational opportunities for my children, was a gift. I have a true passion to connect with families, genuinely know you as individuals, and to create an inspiring, unique, premier preschool experience for children that reflects the Bentonville and NW Arkansas community. Although Travis and I are a husband-and-wife team, I will be the on-site owner with Travis as a support role in our school. I love spending my free time running, creating beauty and a healthy lifestyle in my home, and loving on my own three children: supporting their activities and interests, volunteering at their schools, and giving back to the community.
