Goddard School Is Expanding Its Footprint In McKinney, TX
Successful McKinney Franchisees Open Second Play-Based Preschool Location
August 14, 2019 // Franchising.com // MCKINNEY, TX - Robbin and Rick Wells, onsite owners of The Goddard School in McKinney, are bringing a second location to the city to meet the demand for early childhood education options in the growing community.
They first became owners of The Goddard School in 2015 and decided to build a second location about 5 miles away from their current Ridge Road location. The newest School is loctated at 1801 Ridge Road.
“The main driver behind the decision to open a second location in McKinney was demand, growth and deepening our commitment to early childhood education in a city we love,” said Robbin Wells, on-site owner of the School.
The preschool is now open and serves area children ages 6 weeks to 6 years old with its unique play-based learning curriculum. The preschool also has an after-school program for school-aged students attending McClure, Wilmer, Hughes, and Baker elementary schools.
“We are passionate about education and hospitality, and the blending of these two industries delivers a customer service experience second to none,” said Robbin.
The couple, who lives on an organic farm in Lucas, are heavily involved in community outreach and philanthropy. They launched The Seed Project Foundation in 2015 to help fund educational, agricultural and community initiatives that promote sustainable living in their community. They felt opening a second Goddard School would help extend their passions to the community.
“This will give families who live and commute through the northern corridor more options for high-quality childcare and prekindergarten,” Robbin said.
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.
