The Goddard School Is Now Open In Chattanooga

Couple Opens Play-Based Learning Preschool

  • Wednesday, October 14, 2020

The Goddard School, a nationally acclaimed early childhood education franchise, officially opened in Chattanooga and is now enrolling. The new school offers parents in the community peace of mind knowing there’s an option for their children to safely return to the classroom in a nurturing environment, said officials. 

On-site owner of the newest Goddard School, Parul Patel and her husband, Vic, were looking to provide a service to area families. Providing parents with an educational program that offers a high-quality early childhood learning experience was top of mind for them. Their goal in opening a Goddard School is to provide children in the community with an environment that develops joyful, confident learners ready to succeed in school and in life, said officials.

“Our goal is to fulfill our community’s need for a good early childhood education program," Ms. Patel said. "By opening our Goddard School in the historic Northshore neighborhood of Chattanooga, we’re able to provide area families with an additional option for quality schooling. Along with all early childhood educators, we’ve had to alter our plan and approach based on the ongoing pandemic, but we are committed to providing area children with the best opportunities to grow, learn and be successful.

“As we prepared to open our doors for the first time, we’ve implemented a number of health and safety protocols to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 at our school. From health checks before entry; restricting outside visitors, including parents, from entering our schools; heightening cleaning and sanitization of all high-touch areas; and even investing in the latest sanitization technologies. This is all to ensure we’re creating a healthy environment for children to learn and grow.”

The newest Goddard School, at 17 W. Bell Ave., is open Monday to Friday from 7 a.m.-5 p.m.
