Meet Kristine

Hello! My name is Kristine Kempl and my husband, Kevin, and I are the owners of the newest premier early childhood center coming to Novi. We are previous Goddard parents, which led us on this journey to share our experience with local families and provide the opportunity for each child to build a strong foundation for school and life. I have a Masters in Occupational Therapy, which focuses on developing or rehabilitating appropriate emotional and motor development across the lifespan. I believe every child should have the opportunity to excel in a safe, nurturing and enriching environment. I am excited to use my background to partner with parents and provide an inclusive space for their child to grow. We would love to be an extension of your family! I look forward to hearing from you! Warmest regards, Kevin & Kristine Kempl Phone: 248-313-4102 Email:

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!
