Owner
Welcome, we are Paula and Bob Janmey, proud owners of the Goddard School in North Ridgeville. As parents ourselves, We recognize how important it is for families to have a safe and nurturing learning environment for their children. Our daughters attended a local Goddard School from the time they were infants through Pre-K. This experience inspired us to pursue the ownership of our own school several years later. Paula, who is at the school daily, received her Bachelor of Science Degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of South Florida, and her Master of Science degree in Positive Organizational Development and Change from Case Western Reserve University. Paula enjoys reading, bicycling with the family and watching her daughters in their many extracurricular activities. "Our mission is to provide families the best possible experience in early childhood education in a warm and caring environment. As on-site owners, we welcome the opportunity to build a relationship with your family! Thank you for the opportunity to share this wonderful time in your family's life."
