On-Site Owner
I have been a resident of Fishhawk for three years. I live here with my husband Shekar and our two boys, Aditya and Adarsh who go to Fishhawk Creek Elementary School. My educational background includes a Bachelor’s degree and a Master’s degree in Civil Engineering from George Mason University, Virginia. I have worked in corporate America for ten years as a professional engineer. I am excited to bring a high quality preschool program to our community. We noticed a clear need for a premier preschool in the area as we shopped for childcare for our boys. I am honored to bring the Goddard program that will help shape the early childhood development for the children in our community.

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.
