    Mrs Robin

    Owner
    Hello, my name is Robin Ray and my husband, Ted, and I are the proud owners of The Goddard School® located on Old Atlanta Road in Suwanee. We have been Goddard School owners since 2000. We live in Laurel Springs, directly behind the School, with our twin boys (Both graduates of Goddard). I graduated from the University of Notre Dame with a degree in Management Information Systems. Before opening our first Goddard School, I worked in Information Technology for 15 years. During my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and playing tennis and volleyball. While pregnant with my twins years ago, I recognized the need and demand for a quality alternative to standard daycare. We then decided to open The Goddard School®. Our mission here is to offer the absolute best in high quality childcare and education. Being an on-site owner, I welcome your comments and concerns. Thank you for the opportunity to share in your child’s growth and early childhood development.
