    Mrs Stephanie

    On-Site Owner
    I am the on-site owner and very excited to be a part of The Goddard School® family. As a Stanford grad and senior executive in Fortune 500/Global 50 companies, I experienced first-hand the value that a strong educational foundation and love of learning can impart. As a working parent, I struggled to locate a quality program for my 2 daughters when they were toddlers. My goal is therefore to provide a school that enriches your child’s emotional, social, intellectual and physical development while preparing them for success in the 21st Century, and providing the foundation for a lifelong love of learning in a safe and nurturing environment.
