Owner
As a mother of two my choices are very personal. One of my daughters has already graduated through the Goddard School and one is currently enrolled. There's an amazing amount of trust extended when you choose a school, and I am passionate about the quality of the experience your child receives. I constantly verify that the teachers attitudes and skills exceed your expectations. We are your child's first school and set the tone for their future love of learning, and take that quest personally. Lea has a BA of Fine Arts degree from UNC-Charlotte and received her Director Level 3 Certification in Early Childhood shortly after. Lea has been involved in Early Childhood Education since 2000, both as a Teacher and Director. Lea has owned the Goddard School in Cary since 2016.
