Meet Danielle

Danielle Crowley is the onsite owner of The Goddard School of Mechanicsville, VA. Danielle has worked in large and small organizations providing strategic and operational leadership. She has a Masters of Business Administration from Cornell University and a Bachelor of Arts from Randolph Macon Women’s College. Danielle has been married to Ben for nearly 10 years and they have two children, Finn and Grace, who are enrolled in The Goddard School of Mechanicsville. “My experience with The Goddard School started as a parent when Ben and I enrolled our children in a Goddard School. At The Goddard School we watched our children build a love for learning in a nurturing environment. I want every family that walks into the school to discover the fun learning environment that we provide. Each child's experience in The Goddard School will establish educational foundations to prepare them for life."

What Teachers Mean to Me

Every member of the Goddard faculty has special, often extraordinary, gifts they share with their students. When a child comes home happy and can't wait to see their teacher the next day, tell us about it. Take this moment to celebrate your child's teachers!
