COLUMBUS, Ohio - Nov. 10, 2017 - PRLog -- Goddard Systems, Inc. (GSI), ( the franchisor of The Goddard School® preschool system, announces its latest school in Gahanna, OH is open. Located at 5515 Morse Road, the new school is operated by husband and wife franchisees, Ryan and Catherine Park.

Ryan, a veteran of the auto industry, and Catherine, a retail operations specialist, discovered The Goddard School through family members who own two locations in the Columbus area. Ryan and Catherine also experienced firsthand the positive impact that The Goddard School made on their daughter successes in and outside of the classroom. Coupled with their love for working with children and families, the Parks knew that this was the only franchise business they were interested in pursuing.

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.

"Catherine and I have both experienced the importance of early childhood education and care with our daughter. We would like parents to feel the same trust and peace of mind that we felt at The Goddard School," said Ryan Park. "Our daughter's enjoyment for school is something all children should share, and we look forward to becoming the best early childhood education program in  the Gahanna community."
