New Goddard School In Pearland To Open Early Winter 2018
Registered Nurse Fulfills Dream of Opening a Preschool
November 28, 2018 // Franchising.com // PEARLAND, TX - Sheetal Patel, onsite owner of the newest Goddard School located in Pearland, TX, knew from a young age that she had an entrepreneurial drive and love for educating children.
She watched her immigrant parents work tirelessly to ensure their business was thriving, to provide their children with opportunities they did not have. By opening The Goddard School, she is fulfilling her passions and continuing a family legacy.
“At a very young age, my parents instilled in me the love for learning and the value of education,” she said. “I wanted to give my children the same experience that I had growing up - working alongside my parents while learning valuable life skills and lessons in work ethic, financial responsibility, leadership and human interaction.”
Sheetal opened the newest preschool with her husband, Nimish. They have lived in the area since 2005, raising their two children in the Pearland community.
Before opening her own preschool, Sheetal was a registered nurse with more than 15 years of experience. She specialized in pediatrics for five years of her career. Sheetal loves working with children and sees the value of providing a quality education at a young age in a nurturing environment.
“My love and passion for children and education is what has driven me to open The Goddard School in Pearland,” Sheetal said.
The Goddard School located in Pearland (Pearland Parkway), TX, is expected to open early winter 2018. At 10,000 square feet, the school will serve about 182 children ages six weeks to six years old and, at capacity, employ 26 faculty members. The preschool will also serve school-aged children, from kindergarten to 4th grade, through its before- and after-school programs.
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, located off Pearland Parkway at 2920 Province Village Drive, will be open Monday to Friday from 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
