    Rebecca

    Owner
    My husband, Derik, and I live in Upper Arlington with our daughters Eleanor and Abigail. Prior to joining the Goddard family, I had a 20-year career as a retail merchandising executive. It was my experience as a working mom in search of a high quality, nurturing environment for my daughter that led me on my remarkable journey to Goddard. It was hard to know how to select the best program for Eleanor and we ended up having a bad experience with her first school. Then we found Goddard and saw how much of a difference the teachers, the care, and the curriculum made. This experience inspired me to dedicate myself to providing the very best in early childhood care and learning and to provide a sense of peace and security to you, the families, who leave the best part of yourselves with us every day. I am excited to get to know each and every one of you, and especially to know your children. Please reach out to me any time, my door is always open.

    Assistant Director
    My name is Alissa, and I am the Preschool 2 Co-Lead teacher! I am currently attending Florida Southwestern University pursing my Early Childhood Education Degree and have been working with children for the past 5 years. I believe as educators we must hold ourselves to a certain standard to truly achieve a well-rounded learning environment for the children and I see that at Goddard! I have known since I was very little that I wanted to be a teacher. Watching light bulbs go off for the kiddos is such a rewarding feeling and the bonds you create with each child are unforgettable. I want each and every child to feel loved and safe when they walk into my classroom. I moved to Ohio in 2021 with my husband and welcomed our first daughter into the world May of 2021 and second daughter July 2022!
