On-Site Owner
As a mother of two my choices are very personal. Both of my daughters have graduated from Goddard and are now in school. 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.

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!

We work tirelessly to ensure children thrive in a healthy, safe and warm environment. Within this secure and nurturing environment, children can discover their unique gifts.

Our programs go beyond academics and help children develop important social-emotional skills like kindness, empathy, responsible decision making and more.  

In our classrooms, creativity and curiosity blossom as children discover the wonder of learning. Through fun learning experiences (F.L.EX.®), your child will develop academic and social-emotional skills that will help them feel ready to take on the world.
