Meet Denise

We are Denise and Mitch Manders, proud owners of the Goddard School of West Carmel. Prior to owning the school, we both spent our careers in various leadership roles within accounting/finance. We have three children – Evan, Noah and Layla, who keep us very busy throughout the year! As parents in the school, we recognize how important it is to create an environment of love and empowerment for the children and teachers. With our backgrounds in business and our passion to make a difference for others, we are excited to start this new journey as owners of the school!

We work tirelessly to ensure children thrive in a healthy, safe and warm environment. Within this secure and nurturing environment, children can discover their unique gifts.

Our programs go beyond academics and help children develop important social-emotional skills like kindness, empathy, responsible decision making and more.  

In our classrooms, creativity and curiosity blossom as children discover the wonder of learning. Through fun learning experiences (F.L.EX.®), your child will develop academic and social-emotional skills that will help them feel ready to take on the world.
