Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!

Kick off Teacher Appreciation Week with this message from our Chairman and CEO, Dennis R. Maple.

Meet Susan

Susan Hoy, Owner - Although I have a Masters of Business Administration degree and many years’ experience in operations and materials management for major corporations, early childhood was an avocation of mine throughout my professional career. My Bachelor's degree is in English Education from Douglass College of Rutgers University. After exploring many other options, in 1999 I was able to fulfill my dream of opening The Goddard School® located in Hillsborough. I am extremely proud of the contributions we have made to the early childhood experience for so many children in the Hillsborough community. In 2023 I am proud to function as an advisor and business manager as my son Tim and daughter Kate continue to run the day-to-day operations of our school as on-site owners.

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!
