KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa. - Sept. 24, 2014 // PRNewswire // - Goddard Systems, Inc. (GSI), the franchisor of The Goddard School® preschool system, announced today its newest school is opening in Flower Mound, Texas. Located at 4051 Cross Timbers Road in Flower Mound, the new school is owned by local entrepreneur Alpa Oswal and her business partners Kartavya and Mitesh Patel. In honor of the school's opening in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, the community is invited to a grand opening celebration on Saturday, October 4.
"We are thrilled to open our new school in Flower Mound," said Alpa Oswal, co-owner of The Goddard School. "We're very much looking forward to meeting new families at the grand opening celebration and are eager to provide the community with a strong foundation for educational and social growth."
The grand opening festivities at The Goddard School located in Flower Mound will be held from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 4 and attendees will be treated to onsite games and activities.

This is the first Goddard School franchise for Oswal, though her business partners have had a hand in opening other Goddard Schools in the past.

She is currently an active member of the Flower Mound community and often volunteers for the Chamber of Commerce.
The Goddard School preschool system operates on a dual-management system, distinctive in the early childhood education industry. Each location is managed on-site by the franchise owner, as well as an educational director responsible for working with teachers and implementing the curriculum.

The Goddard School opening in Flower Mound is part of GSI's expansion plan across the United States to open 30 new schools per year by 2019.
"As we aggressively add schools across the country, we are confident that our franchise model will provide entrepreneurs with profitable businesses and unmatched support," said Joe Schumacher, chief executive officer, Goddard Systems, Inc.
