Meet Mona

We are now OPEN! After being a part of the Triangle community for over twenty years, it is truly a dream come true for Mona to open a new Goddard School! Having raised two children herself, she recognizes how valuable it is to set a solid foundation for children in their early years of learning. She firmly believes that children enjoy learning in a nurturing and creative environment. Mona earned her Bachelor's Degree in Fine Arts as well as an Associate Degree in Graphic Design. Early in her career, as a Graphic Designer, she primarily focused on working with elementary schools and community colleges in the area. She puts forth a unique blend of her education, coupled with her personal and professional experiences, to build an amazing Goddard School. Mona is proficient in interpersonal skills and loves building great human connections with parents, families, children and her staff. Her vision for the school is to provide stimulating premier child care that promotes social, emotional, physical and cognitive development in addition to offering our children and teachers a creative environment to reach their full potential.
