Meet Nicole

Brant and Nicole Dennis are the owners of The Goddard School of Minnetonka. Nicole, the onsite owner, graduated from Bethel University with her bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. She went on to receive her Master’s of Education from St. Mary’s University. She taught in the elementary classroom in the Robbinsdale Area School District for 20+ years. Nicole is excited to continue to educate children, connect with families, and lead a team of amazing staff at the Goddard School of Minnetonka. Brant graduated from the University of St. Thomas with a Finance degree and is employed at Landscape Structures (LSI). LSI builds playgrounds and therefore this school will be equipped with 2 high-quality, fun playgrounds! As parents of 3 small children, they know the importance of creating a trusting, nurturing, safe, and high-quality program to all families in the Minnetonka and surrounding communities.
