Meet Dona

Hello, my name is Dona Lawler and my husband, Tim, and I are the proud owners of the NAEYC Accredited Goddard Schools® located in Naperville. I received a Bachelor’s degree in Business from the University of Illinois and previously worked as an accountant. Tim has a Bachelor’s degree from Yale and a law degree from the University of Illinois. He has practiced business law for many years. During our free time, we enjoy spending time with our three grown daughters, golf and fitness activities. We have experienced so much in parenting and enjoy making a difference in the lives of young children. Our mission here is to offer the absolute best in high quality childcare and education. We are also committed to providing an eco-friendly environment for our students and are proud to be offering an organic food program. Being on-site owners, we welcome your comments and concerns.
