April 07, 2016 // Franchising.com // SPRING, Texas - Goddard Systems, Inc. (GSI), the franchisor of The Goddard School® preschool system, announces its newest school in Spring (Klein), Texas is open. Located at 3429 FM 2920, Spring, TX 77388, the new school is owned and operated by Terry Sun.
Terry brings a wide variety of business experience with him to The Goddard School, as he previously worked as a planner in the oil industry and operated his own restaurant. In addition to his business aptitude, Terry is also equipped with a vast educational background holding a Bachelor of Arts, a Master of Science and a Master of Business Administration degree. Terry and his wife, a registered nurse, heard about The Goddard School when researching preschools in the area. Their young children will also attend the school in Spring.
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.
“With three degrees, I know first-hand how beneficial it can be to have quality education and how important it is to start that journey early on,” said franchisee, Terry Sun. “The Goddard School was the clear answer to fulfill both my entrepreneurial desire while also bringing the community, and even my own children, a premier academic experience.”
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).
