Owner
Welcome! My name is Jenna Ellis and I am the On-Site Owner of our wonderful Goddard School® located on Windward Parkway in Alpharetta. I have been working in the field of Early Childhood Education since 2004 and have been at The Goddard School® on Windward since 2014. My husband, Zach and I have both of our children here with us at Goddard Windward starting in our infant classroom all the way through Kindergarten. Our teachers are our partners in parenting, creating a personal relationship that will never be replaced. We are so proud to be a family-ran, community-focused business. I hold my B.S. degree in Developmental Psychology with a focus in developmental and educational facets. The Goddard School® has had the most influential and profound impact on my life and helped mold me from teacher, to director, and as of 2017, the Owner that I am today. Our philosophy of whole-child teaching through a play-based, STEAM-enhanced curriculum focused on collaboration, creativity, communication, critical thinking and citizenship, promotes parent-child relationships and open communication while effectively helping you to mold the leaders of tomorrow. Here at The Goddard School® on Windward, we encourage each child to vocalize their own ideas and foster their confidence as learners. From learning in our outdoor classroom and growing in our student garden to the theater productions on our gym stage and scaling our rock climbing wall, students are encouraged to be explorers, critical thinkers and problem solvers. This approach alongside the incredible faculty and intentional leadership we have here at Goddard Windward allowed us to win dozens of awards including Best Preschool in Alpharetta, over and over again. I am so excited to meet you and invite your family into ours.
