    Mr David

    On-site Owner
    I am so proud to be part of this wonderful school; our children, parents, and faculty make an amazing family! Prior to owning the school, I worked for Goddard Systems Incorporated (Franchisor of The Goddard School). I decided early on that I firmly believed in the educational program that Goddard provides. I believe we change the lives of children and families. I believe we provide the environment, materials, direction, and opportunities for experiences that will promote a child's innate ability to learn and develop. I am passionate that they graduate being School Ready, Career Ready, Life Ready.
