    Kim & Aaron

    Hello, my name is Kim and my husband Aaron and I are the proud owners of The Goddard School in Springdale, AR. I graduated with a Bachelors in Elementary Education from Williams Baptist College. Later, I received a Masters in Elementary Education from Arkansas State University. I have spent the last twenty-five years teaching in public schools. I have always had a heart for children, so I decided opening a premier preschool experience would be perfect for my family and me. Although Aaron and I are a husband-and-wife team, I will be the on-site owner with Aaron as a supporting role in our school. Aaron served four years in the U.S. Air Force before attending Arkansas State University on a golf scholarship. He has spent the last twenty years in the insurance industry. We have two daughters, Bailey, Keylee, and a son-in-law Nick. I love running, spending time with family, and watching the Hogs. I am so excited for the opportunity to serve my community through childcare.
