Michael Petrucelli - On-site Owner - As a father, business owner, and community member, Michael recognizes the important role that a caring and supportive environment plays in helping to create a fun, engaging, and dynamic learning atmosphere in which children can thrive and develop a life long love of learning.
After a 20-year career in the financial services industry, Michael wanted to start and operate a business that could make a positive difference for the families and the communities it would serve. Believing strongly in the opportunities that education can provide (Michael holds a B.S. in Electrical Engineering, an M.B.A. in Finance and an M.A. in Economics) and wanting to pursue his interest in education, while serving the community, Michael decided to open The Goddard School® located in Darien.
Michael and The Goddard School are committed to providing the highest quality preschool experience possible, that will enrich every child's emotional, social, intellectual and physical development, while providing the foundation for a lifelong love of learning.
