  • Mrs Mary

    Mrs Mary

    Director
    Hello...and welcome to our school! I am excited to be a part of such a wonderful, learning environment. Since our opening in 2009, we have grown as a family and have established a great reputation as a leader in Early Childhood Education in our community! In 2011, I was awarded the highest honor by our company- DIRECTOR OF THE YEAR- and I am very proud to say that I could not have accomplished that without the help of the families and staff we have here. In 2013, I applied for, and received a certificate of merit to be a Mentor Director for The Goddard School Director Mentor Program. I am honored and privileged to continue my personal growth within this amazing company. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Child Psychology from Central Connecticut State University and have worked in the Early Childhood Education field since 1992! Being a parent is something I treasure, and my own family means the world to me! My Son, is a U. S. Marine and we could not be more proud! He is currently a CT State Trooper. My daughter is an avid hockey player and is currently playing D-1 Hockey at St. Anselm College! Understanding that being a parent is the toughest job you will ever love, also allows me to understand how difficult it can be to leave your child in someone else's care. That is why every child here is treated as though they are my own and I share this philosophy with my staff. I am available for parents, staff and children as a mentor and guide. I would like to welcome you and your family to our school and our Goddard family!
