Meet Janelle & Mike Glasser - Owners/Operators

Janelle and Mike opened The Goddard School® located in Sparks on July 5, 2005. After much soul searching to find the perfect family-friendly business that also makes a tangible, positive difference in the world they decided that Goddard's educational child care model was the perfect fit. They opened their second school, the Goddard School in Bare Hills in January, 2013. They take great pride in the preschool communities they built and the high-quality programs they offer to their families. They work hard to create a warm, supportive work environment for their teachers, who quickly become part of their family. The Glassers have three grown children of their own. Before Goddard, Janelle spent seven years at home raising their children. Prior to that, she worked in events coordinating, advertising and public relations. She began her professional life as an elementary school teacher and is thrilled to work in the field of education again. Her focus at the school is program development, curricular planning, staff development and marketing. Mike worked for many years in IT sales and internet marketing. Mike joined the Sparks school full-time during its second year of operation. He has many opportunities to put his IT skills to use by keeping the classroom and office computers running. He loves managing the day-to-day operation of a busy school and considers all of the parents, students and teachers to be extensions of his own family.

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!
