Goddard Systems, Inc. (GSI), the franchisor of The Goddard School, is the recognized leader in the childcare franchise segment, awarding franchises to qualified applicants who want to go into business for themselves, not by themselves. Goddard School franchisees benefit from the extensive support structure that GSI has developed over nearly 30 years in franchising. Our goal as a franchisor is to provide our franchisees with an exceptional foundation to ensure consistency of programs and services for our customers as well as to provide guidance as they achieve their personal goals as business owners.
GSI was recently named the #1 Childcare Franchise in the United States by Entrepreneur magazine for the fifteenth consecutive year (January 2016) and one of the Top 200 Franchise Systems (in worldwide sales) by Franchise Times for the ninth consecutive year (October 2015). Headquartered in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, GSI is expanding The Goddard School system throughout the United States. GSI currently licenses more than 440 franchised Schools with more than 50,000 students in 35 states.
Each Goddard School shares the same passion and vision for early childhood education that has been set forth by GSI. To support our schools and their families, our GSI Corporate Communications team goes far beyond standard daycare centers to provide the support materials necessary to achieve success.
