    Ms Kimberly

    Owner
    I am very excited to have the opportunity to offer a school in your neighborhood! My career path has taken me through corporate Marketing and Operations positions which have afforded me with many great opportunities and experiences. As I watched my nieces’ personalities and skills grow, I was interested in the Goddard program they had been attending. After much research, I was invested. I have two children and they have both been through our program from Infancy through our Private Kindergarten. My children entered Elementary well prepared for a strong academic program as well as social and emotional preparedness when entering a completely new environment. It's been an exciting journey watching them grow and how they developed through the Goddard program. I am excited to see our school grow, be available to our faculty and families and get involved in our surrounding communities. Welcome to The Goddard School!
