Meet Bill

My name is Bill and I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree from Oglethorpe University and my MBA from Emory University, both in Atlanta, Georgia. My wife (Amy) and I opened our first Goddard School in Fort Mill in January of 2009. We then opened our second Goddard School in Fort Mill in March of 2020. As busy as we are with our schools, we are also proud parents of 3 girls (19, 22, and 25) who are all products of our outstanding Fort Mill School District. Our youngest daughter went to the Goddard School in Twinsburg, Ohio and that's how we fell in love with the Goddard concept. Our goal is to provide the best early childhood education experience possible and raise the standard of childcare in the Fort Mill area.
