Who We Are

We are Ankur and Shreya Patel, the new, proud, on site owners of The Goddard School of North Aurora. We are proud residents of the Fox Valley and pride ourselves on being active contributors to the local community.


Shreya has taught children for the past 11 years and has experience working with children and families from many various backgrounds.  Ankur has spent the past 15 years working in Corporate America and leading teams with many of the largest companies in the US.


We have 3 young children, Arian (6), Niam (3), and Mila (2) whom we are happily raising here locally and our youngest two children, Niam and Mila, attend our school.  


Our school proudly serves North Aurora, Aurora, Batavia, Geneva, Sugar Grove, Montgomery and nearby areas. We provide a dynamic and nurturing preschool environment that gives every child the opportunity to become a joyful and confident learner who is prepared for success in school and in life.
