The Goddard School’s Dynamic Learning Through Play Curriculum Comes To Houston, TX’s Cypress Area

Premier Preschool Now Open For Enrollment To The City Community

July 06, 2015 // Franchising.com // HOUSTON, TX. - Goddard Systems, Inc. (GSI), the franchisor of The Goddard School® preschool system, announces its newest School in Houston, TX is enrolling. Located at 9739 Wortham Blvd, Houston, TX 77065, the new School is owned and operated by franchisees, Robert and Jiena Chow.

Robert and Jiena are quite familiar with The Goddard School as the couple also owns and operates The Goddard School located in Houston’s Energy Corridor. Robert will be the on-site operator for the new school and brings an extensive academic background with him, holding a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering as well as a Master of Business Administration both from The University of Texas at Austin.

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 main 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 more than 25 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.

“The Goddard School’s philosophy and unique model allow for an experience that is just unmatchable, for both the children and their families,” said franchisee, Robert Chow. “Our own children also attend The Goddard School and I am excited to extend the exceptional quality of education and childcare to other families in the Houston area.”

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 14 consecutive years (January 2015).
