School Owners
Lisa and Frank Cariello are excited to bring The Goddard School to the Apex, Green Level West area. We have been on-site owners of The Goddard School for the past sixteen years. Lisa holds a BS degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Illinois and spent 16 years as a research and project engineer. Frank is a Meteorologist with a BS degree from Northern Illinois University. He spent 20 years on-air in both television and radio. Arriving in Cary, NC in 2002, we had three children in care at The Goddard School. We understand the peace of mind that a secure, friendly center with great early childhood experiences can bring a family. We opened our first center in 2005 in Apex. While our boys have moved on, we look forward to continuing to bring the Goddard experience to families in Apex and Cary.

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!
