Meet  Dianne

Meet Dianne

Ms. Dianne has been a preschool director in the Inland Empire for over 30 years. She grew up in the Canyon Crest area of Riverside during her childhood and is delighted to be back in the community working at Goddard. Her passion has always been in Early Childhood since becoming a mother. She had the privilege of raising her two children while working as a preschool teacher early in her career. She credits preschool for playing a key role in her children’s lives and setting them up for a successful career path. Now, a grandparent of nine, she understands the importance of finding a quality preschool in these changing times. Ms. Dianne believes that classrooms should be a place where children can explore, question, and create without the fear of failure. She is excited to bring her knowledge to the team and give our families the assurance of a fun, safe and nurturing environment at The Goddard School of Riverside.

What Teachers Mean to Me

Every member of the Goddard faculty has special, often extraordinary, gifts they share with their students. When a child comes home happy and can't wait to see their teacher the next day, tell us about it. Take this moment to celebrate your child's teachers!

We work tirelessly to ensure children thrive in a healthy, safe and warm environment. Within this secure and nurturing environment, children can discover their unique gifts.

Our programs go beyond academics and help children develop important social-emotional skills like kindness, empathy, responsible decision making and more.  

In our classrooms, creativity and curiosity blossom as children discover the wonder of learning. Through fun learning experiences (F.L.EX.®), your child will develop academic and social-emotional skills that will help them feel ready to take on the world.
