The Goddard School Franchise Start-Up Costs


As the acknowledged leader in childcare franchises, GSI is expanding the Goddard School network throughout the United States. Headquartered in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, GSI currently licenses 360+ franchised schools in 37 states. Learn about GSI and the Goddard System.

Here are five reasons you'll want to consider investing in your own future success — and the success of hundreds of children — as a Goddard School franchisee.

  1. The childcare market demand is very strong, now and in the foreseeable future.
    • 14.4 million children in the United States are in some form of childcare arrangement and fees for these services have been rising steadily over the past several years
    • Top-line revenue gains for the industry have been in the 10% range since 1999
    • In 2007, the childcare industry was valued at nearly $40 billion
    • The industry is expected to grow 9.2% annually based on these childcare demand drivers:
      • 3.94 million births per year
      • 65% of mothers with children under age 6 are in the workplace
      • 78% of mothers with children between ages 6 and 17 are in the workplace

  2. Within The Goddard System, you can count on receiving a proven model for success backed by the franchise support you need to succeed.

    Here are just two examples of the exceptional support you can expect.

    • GSI will help you develop a state-of-the-art facility in a suburban or metropolitan setting based on demographic requirements. This means your school will offer convenience to the ultimate customer – the families of Goddard School children — making you an in-demand resource.
    • GSI has developed its proprietary Goddard Systems University (GSU), a unique training program providing ongoing development for you, your School's Director and your teachers. We cover topics such as Goddard Quality Assurance standards, curriculum and program, health and safety, hiring procedures, community relations and payroll control.

  3. You'll offer the following highly valued benefits to parents seeking quality childcare:
    • Your fully licensed childcare franchise follows The Goddard School® FLEX Learning Program™, a gold standard in child-centered learning success that has earned AdvancED-Accreditation.
    • You employ highly qualified faculty trained in Early Childhood Education or Child Development
    • You and your faculty provide children with carefully planned preschool educational programs that meet the social, emotional, cognitive and physical needs of each child
    • Your school maintains a small group atmosphere to provide individual attention
    • You offer open and honest communication with parents in an atmosphere of mutual trust and respect
    • Your team makes a meaningful daily contribution to families in your community in a way that’s unmatched by any other childcare franchise.

  4. Goddard School programs meet or exceed accreditation standards and support the emotional, social, behavioral and educational development of enrolled children.

    The learning environment includes a core curriculum emphasizing early childhood development and incorporates enrichment programs in manners, fitness, foreign language, art history, music appreciation, dance, math, sign language and world cultures.

    As a Goddard School franchise owner offering these programs, you're supported by Goddard Quality Assurance which stands for excellence in childcare and early childhood education.

    Programs of The Goddard School are accredited by AdvancED, a global accreditation system delivering unified quality standards for education. AdvancED -- the same accreditation board that accredits private and public schools, colleges and universities -- evaluates quality, continuous improvement and student success in early childhood education centers.

  5. You're part of a dedicated circle of success, where there's ample opportunity for professional enrichment and personal satisfaction.

    GSI franchisees share a common entrepreneurial spirit and a commitment to providing the highest quality childcare in their communities, as evidenced by each School's on-site management.

    Based on their success under The Goddard System, an impressive 30% of GSI franchisees have already purchased second franchises.

    "I knew I wanted to do something that I could feel good about at the end of the day and still meet my financial goals - this business definitely fulfills these requirements. It's a great feeling when your customers are thanking you on the way out the door." — Kellie McDonald, Goddard School Franchisee, Lake Orion, MI
