HOUSTON, TX, November 10, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Goddard Systems, Inc. (GSI), the franchisor of The Goddard School preschool system, announces its latest school in Katy, TX is open. Located at 27528 Westridge Creek Lane, the new school is operated by franchisee Asli Remlinger, in partnership with her husband Kirk Remlinger.
Prior to opening a location of The Goddard School, Asli graduated with a degree in Business Administration from the University of Houston, and lead a successful career in the oil and gas industry. After having her first child, Asli chose to switch directions and pursue an education degree as she felt a calling to work with children. While holding a position as an elementary school teacher, Asli felt a desire to mix her knowledge of business with her passion for education and began researching preschool franchise opportunities. She eventually discovered The Goddard School and fell in love with its holistic, play-based curriculum.
In 2010, Asli opened The Goddard School located in Katy at Cinco Village Center, saw massive success and decided to open a second Katy location at Ranch Point in 2013. Due to an overwhelmingly positive response from the surrounding communities for her two existing schools, Asli opened her third location of The Goddard School in the Cinco Ranch neighborhood in Fall 2017.
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 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.
"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.
"Having been a member of the Katy community for 25 years, I've always had the desire to give back to my home in some way," said owner Asli Remlinger. "The Goddard School has allowed me to make an impact in the lives of hundreds of families by providing an unmatched, quality early childhood education program, and I'm proud to continue growing The Goddard School's presence in Katy."
