Welcome to Our School

The Goddard School of Sarasota is more than a warm and nurturing place. It's more than a great education for your child. It's peace of mind.

Meet Jennifer

I have lived in Lakewood Ranch, on the border of Sarasota since 2010. We moved here from Louisville, KY for my husbands job. But I was born and raised in South East Michigan. My background is in nursing. I have a BSN, Bachelors of Science of Nursing. I have spent most of my career as an Operating Room nurse. As I began to expand my family it became harder and harder to work the long and varying hours, and with my second pregnancy it was near impossible for me to work in the OR any longer so I decided to take a break for a couple of years. I knew I eventually would work again and having a job that I can take my small children with me was the perfect solution for my family. As the owner of the newest Goddard School my goal is to provide a fun and safe learning environment where the children will thrive and prepare them for their future.

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!
