    Mr CJ

    Owner
    I'm CJ Walia. I'm a father to a strong, independent 16-year-old daughter and owner of the Goddard School of Haslet and Justin, TX. I have my Master's in Computer Science from the University of Birmingham in England, and I've worked as an independent consultant with Fortune 500 companies for over 20 years. I often traveled for work, but my family and I have lived in DFW for over 30 years. I have two older sisters who are teachers in the local school district. I wanted to start a Preschool to be closer to my daughter because I love that I can positively influence children at such an early age and guide them to do good for themselves and society. I feel incredibly blessed to offer a modern, curriculum-based, state-of-the-art childcare facility. It's a beautiful way to make a meaningful difference in the community and the world.
