Meet Alec

As the proud owner of The Goddard School since 1998, I am happy to introduce to you my Directors and Faculty. They are truly the people that have helped me establish and maintain our excellent program over the years. Please be sure to take a look at their brief introductions and call to schedule a time to come in and meet them. Establishing a place to work that is fun, fair and respectful has been a goal of mine since we opened. With many of our staff having taught here at The Goddard School for many years, I am pleased to have met this goal and will continue into the future. I am actively involved with the children on a daily basis and wouldn't have it any other way. While I also maintain all the financial, security and supervisory roles, my favorite time is the time in the classroom. My wife, Heather and I have three children and we use our personal parenting experiences to assist us in our understanding of children and their parents' daily challenges. My BA is in Child Psychology and I use this background and training daily to enrich the lives of children here at The Goddard School. I have been an EMT since 1988 and worked at Suburban Hospital in the Emergency Room for 8 years prior to opening the school. This background, combined with the years of volunteering for various EMS services pays off with the bumps and bruises that tend to occur as children explore their outside world. I have coached soccer teams, volunteered as a CASA child advocate and helped out in various volunteer roles through my children's experience in the public schools. I served on the Carroll County Planning and Zoning Commission Board from 2008 to 2019 and currently serve our community as the chairman of the Board of Directors for Carroll Hospital Center. I am committed to providing a safe, loving environment for children to learn and grow. One of the ways I do this is by maintaining a happy, respectful and fair place for people to work. Consistent staff helps provide the stability and knowledge necessary to guide each child, individually, as they develop through our program. As you look around, please include us on your list to visit and allow us the opportunity to share with you our program, our teachers and our facility. Thanks for visiting our web site, please email us at DEldersburgMD@GoddardSchools.com or call us directly at 410-549-8822 to set up a time to come in. https://www.goddardschool.com/parent-resources/parenting-under-five
