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