The Goddard School’s Dynamic Learning Through Play Curriculum Comes To Paramus

Premier Preschool Now Open For Enrollment To The City Community

April 14, 2016 // // PARAMUS, NJ - Goddard Systems, Inc. (GSI), the franchisor of The Goddard School® preschool system, announces its newest school in Paramus, NJ is open. Located at 332 Forest Avenue, Paramus, NJ 07652, the new school is owned and operated by franchisees Bill and Wendy Kim. 

Prior to joining The Goddard School, Bill worked as an electrical engineer in the sales industry. After realizing he wanted a new adventure in education, Bill and his wife, Wendy, decided to open a Goddard School in Ramsey, NJ. Together, they’ve led the school to 15 years of success, and knew they knew they wanted to continue providing quality childcare to families in the community by opening a school in nearby Paramus.

The Goddard School preschool system prides itself on its unique dual-management system, a distinguisher in the early childhood education industry. Franchise owners are onsite at each location and work alongside an educational director, whose focus is to communicate and work with teachers, as well as to implement The Goddard School curriculum. This dual-management system ensures a hands-on, community-focused approach when it comes to early childhood education. With each school opening, The Goddard School also has a local economic impact, creating an average of 20 to 25 jobs within the community.

The Goddard School’s play-based approach, called Fun, Learning Experience (or F.L.EX.®), is grounded in research on how children learn best: children experience the deepest, most genuine learning when they are having fun. At The Goddard School, the focus is on building each child’s emotional, academic, social, creative and physical skills to provide a well-rounded experience and ensure each one becomes confident, joyful and fully prepared in school and in life. The Goddard School’s proprietary F.L.EX. curriculum has earned AdvancED and Middle States Corporate Accreditation by demonstrating excellence in early childhood education.

“With nearly 30 years of experience in early childhood education, The Goddard School’s unique dual-management system creates lasting community bonds as owners are on-site at the Schools to provide support to the communities they serve,” said Joe Schumacher, Chief Executive Officer of Goddard Systems, Inc. “One area that truly sets us apart from other childcare systems is our philosophy based on learning through play, designed to teach and reinforce 21st century skills, including social behaviors such as communication, critical thinking, creativity and collaboration. This philosophy fosters a lifelong love of learning and creates meaningful connections at an early age.”

Jobs relating to STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) are currently the fastest growing segment of the U.S. economy, and a focus on developing 21st century skills such as creativity and innovation as well as the abilities to collaborate, communicate and think critically, is expected to increase over time. By introducing 21st century skill concepts early on, children develop a strong foundation and a passion for STEAM at the very beginning of their education.

“Wendy and I saw how The Goddard School’s quality educational programs have had a direct impact on the growth of our students, so we knew we wanted to continue our mission in bringing early education to the community,” said franchisee Bill Kim. “My family and I are eager to reach out to families in Paramus and are confident they will welcome our school with open arms.” 

Long recognized as the industry leader, The Goddard School preschool system has been consistently listed in Entrepreneur magazine’s “Franchise 500” ranking as the number one childcare franchise for 15 consecutive years (January 2016).
