    I am excited to be the on-site owner of The Goddard School of Burlington. I have a bachelor’s degree in Management Information System from Thomas Edison State College. As a mother of three, I believe that all families want a safe, healthy, nurturing environment with an educational focus for their children. My husband, Tushar graduated from NJIT with a master’s degree in Engineering. Although he enjoys being an engineer his father was a school principal and his mother was a teacher so Tushar grew up with a love for education and we are both so very proud to be able to carry on their love of teaching. We look forward to working with all the great families in the area and invite you to visit our school to learn more about our vision and the Goddard philosophy.
