New Goddard School In Woodbury Now Open
Mother of Three Opens Preschool
November 09, 2018 // Franchising.com // WOODBURY, MN - Shannon Gehrmann, owner of the newest The Goddard School located in Woodbury, MN, has a passion for early childhood education.
“As a mother of three young children, I know and understand that where your child starts their educational journey can make all the difference,” Shannon said.
After spending 14 years working for Target, previously serving as the company’s vice president of stores, she decided she wanted to go back to her passion and open up her own preschool.
The Goddard School, located at 4136 Radio Drive, officially opened on Nov. 5. The 10,000-square-foot preschool is serving more than 130 students ages six weeks to six years old. This is the first location in Woodbury and the sixth in the state, providing area children with a unique play-based learning experience in a safe, nurturing and educational environment to help a child’s cognitive, emotional, physical and social development. At capacity, the school will employ 26 faculty members.
The Goddard School’s play-based F.L.EX. Learning Program (Fun Learning Experience) is grounded in research on how children learn best: children experience the deepest, most genuine learning when they are having fun. 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 preschool will be open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.
