  • Mr Anthony

    Mr Anthony

    Owner
    I’m Anthony Busack, the proud onsite owner of your child’s preschool. In searching for a solution to reduce business travel and spend more time with my two sons, along with a desire to invest in my community, the decision to own this Goddard School was made with excitement. Having attended Indiana University and living in Fishers since graduation, we call this community home. Previously, I graduated from the Kelley School of Business in Bloomington and worked in the medical field as a director of sales and previously as a global sales trainer where I realized just how hard teachers work to ensure the success of students of all ages. I have two sons, Dominic and Enzo who currently attend Cathedral High School. Becoming the owner of our Goddard School as given me the opportunity to minimize travel and be present during their formative years. For that I’m grateful. As previously mentioned, my family is the true reason for my career change. - Mr. Anthony
