Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!

Kick off Teacher Appreciation Week with this message from our Chairman and CEO, Dennis R. Maple.

Welcome to Our School

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

Meet  Jane & Genia

Meet Jane & Genia

Meet Jane & Genia, two local moms behind The Goddard School in Deerfield! Their passion for early childhood education inspired them to open Goddard as a high-quality alternative to daycare. With bachelor's degrees in Business and Psychology, and a master's degree in Education, Jane previously was a teacher, owned an Esthetic’s school, and worked with a large social welfare not-for-profit organization. Genia holds a bachelor's and master's degree in History, and a teaching certificate in Early Childhood Education. Before joining forces with Jane, Genia spent 10 years in the not-for-profit industry, working with immigrant families on cultural integration. Together, Jane and Genia are committed to providing a safe and nurturing environment for children, offering healthy, nutritious meals, and a wide variety of enrichment classes. Jane lives in Highland Park with her husband and two children, while Genia resides in Deerfield with her husband, three children and their fluffy cat, Motek!

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!
