    Owner
    My name is Lisa Loveless and my daughter and I own the school together. When my daughter and I decided to go into business for ourselves, we looked for something where we would be able to provide a service to the community. That led us to opening a Goddard School. I believe that our philosophy of encouraging the development of the whole child in a supportive and loving atmosphere will help our children embrace a lifelong love of learning and leave our school with the tools to be successful not just in primary school but throughout life.
