    Owner
    Welcome to The Goddard School! Living in the triangle for my entire life, I have seen tremendous growth in this area and feel privileged to be able to provide a preschool experience that is educational and nurturing at the same time. My background in business management started this wonderful journey for me. During my first pregnancy, I turned my focus to early childhood education in hopes of providing a quality preschool experience for my own child and others. I spent four years as an infant and toddler teacher after completing several courses and receiving my NC Credentials. I enjoyed my years in the classroom but look forward to the new challenges ahead. As part owner, and a parent of three children who attended this school, I have an open door for parents and teachers. My goal is to make the early educational experiences for the children of the school positive and nurturing in every way so they develop a strong foundation that starts them on a journey of knowledge.

    Welcome to The Goddard School! I am proud to be a member of the Goddard family. As a parent of two children, I recognize the importance of providing a quality preschool program in a safe, nurturing and loving environment. I have a Bachelors degree in Accounting and Economics and a Masters degree in Education. I taught infants, toddlers, and preschoolers for several years. As an educator, I can appreciate how Goddard's curriculum develops the whole child, and builds a great foundation that fosters a love for learning. As a mom, I am reminded everyday how precious our little ones are, and that they deserve the best each and every day. I look forward to meeting new families, and providing our children with a positive and enriching preschool experience.

    Welcome to the Goddard School! My journey in childcare began in 2006 as a part time floater and built from there! I have worked in every classroom, with every age group, and contribute these experiences to a solid foundation of understanding the "ins and outs" of a positive preschool environment. I am proud to lead a team of professionals who show passion and pride in their work every day and believe that this creates a positive classroom environment for each and every child. I have worked for The Goddard School in Fuquay-Varina since 2012 and have a Goddard graduate and a current Goddard student. I chose the Goddard School for my employment AND for my children based on the focus of the whole child. I appreciate that my children get to be children here, all while building a strong foundation and love for learning.
