Owner Operator
My name is Jill Pelicano and I earned my Bachelors of Science Degree in Human Resources with a concentration in Community and Family Services and Early Childhood Education from The University of Delaware. When moving to Urbana we searched for a Education based preschool program. Our options were limited to daycare centers or in home daycare. Knowing what we were looking for, we decided to pursue our dream of opening a premiere Pre-School for our children, and the Urbana community. Our Dream became a reality, The Goddard School Urbana opened January 5th 2009. Since opening we have continuously striven to provide an educationally STEAM + Literacy focused, warm nurturing environment that Is beneficial to all children. Owning our own Goddard School has been such a wonderful experience. We are fortunate to have had the honor of touching so many lives within our community.
