Hi my name is Fred Maresca, everyone knows me as Mr. Fred. I have been a Goddard School Owner since 1996. In my prior life I worked in the banking industry for 20 years. Owning a Goddard School was a welcomed change. Both of my children attended The Goddard School starting as infants. My oldest, Katie is a High School math teacher down in Raleigh, NC. My son is a senior at Belmont University majoring in Music Education.
The Goddard School of Hamilton is truly a family friendly place. We are very proud of our staff as they have a combined 140 years at our school. Please check out their biographies on our web page. I think you will be impressed with the tenure of our staff.
As each year passes you come to realize how much a well-run school means to the families in your community. A family gave me the following note after their second child graduated from The Goddard School of Hamilton.
How do we thank you for all you’ve meant to our family for the past four years?
Thank you for giving us a tour that very first time and telling us it would be okay,
Thank you for the smiles as we walk through the door each morning,
Thank you for the pretzels when we leave at night,
Thank you for hiring teachers that will never leave our hearts,
Thank you for wearing the same Halloween costume every year!!!
Thank you for never making us wonder if our children were safe,
Thank you for making this school so wonderful to come to that it’s so incredibly hard to leave….
Sydney, Jason, Melissa and John
The note sums up why I love what I do, why I have been doing it so long and why I hope to continue to own and operate a Goddard School.
