Teaching Your Children About Money

Thursday, January 4th, 2018

_bh_5541Do you remember being in your teens and your early twenties? Were you low on funds due to unnecessary spending? Help your children learn the value of a dollar in their younger years to help them save later in life. By setting up an allowance, you can teach your children to budget, save and learn the difference between needs and wants.

Offer your children an allowance and let them buy anything they choose with that money for a limited time. Afterwards, talk with your children about what they could have gone without to save money and what was right for them to purchase.

Make a budget with your children. Talk with them about how much they’d like to put in their savings accounts from each allowance and how much they want for personal use. Since young children don’t need to spend money on necessary items, such as food and clothing, be sure to explain that as they get older, they may have to spend their money on many other things that they need. That’s why this is a wonderful time to start saving.

Help your children stick to their budgets, and keep emphasizing how important it is to save money for what they need rather than what they want.

Goddard Systems, Inc. (GSI), the franchisor of The Goddard School® preschool system, announces its latest school in Rocky Hill, CT is now open. Located at 1155 Elm Street Extension, the new school is operated by franchisees Harpreet Bath and Seema Sabarad.

Prior to joining The Goddard School, Harpreet was a stay-at-home mom and regularly volunteered at her daughter’s school while Seema worked as an interpreter and liaison for a company that serviced the U.S. judiciary system. Having become acquainted through mutual friends, the pair became business partners in 2013 and opened another franchise brand that hosts birthday parties for children between the ages of 2 and eleven years old. After a few years of success, the accomplished women started looking into other franchising opportunities when Seema remembered The Goddard School’s impressive program from when she was looking into preschool options for her child. Upon discovering the need for a quality preschool in the area, Seema and Harpreet decided to expand The Goddard School’s presence in Hartford and open a location in Rocky Hill, CT.

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.

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.

 

“What struck us about The Goddard School is that its program uses play as a conduit for developing a life-long love of learning,” said on-site owner Harpreet Bath. “We believe in community welfare, and know that The Goddard School in Rocky Hill will provide families with a quality early childhood education that will ultimately allow children to lead happy and healthy lives.”

The Goddard School located in Rocky Hill, CT can be found at 1155 Elm Street Extension, Rocky Hill, CT 06067. Please call 860-969-0300 or email RockyHillCT@goddardschools.com. For general information and franchising opportunities, please visit www.goddardschoolfranchise.com.

Goddard Systems, Inc. (GSI), the franchisor of The Goddard School® preschool system, announces its latest school in Avon Lake, OH is open. Located at 430 Avon Belden Road, the new school is operated by franchisee Eric Baker, in partnership with his father and sister, Don and Angela Baker.

Eric welcomes a new opportunity for a career change after spending nearly 20 years as a civil litigation attorney in both the federal and state courts throughout Ohio. He discovered The Goddard School by enrolling his twins in the Avon, OH location in 2009, which is owned by his father and sister. Though his children graduated from the program in 2012, the opportunity to join the family business offered Eric an appealing new avenue for personal development and growth. Coupled with experiencing firsthand the positive impact that The Goddard School made on his twins’ successes in and outside of the classroom, Eric knew that this was the only franchise business he was 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.

“I simply love being the onsite owner of this new Goddard School franchise, and I’m so glad I took the leap and changed careers,” said owner Eric Baker. “The Goddard School is more than just a preschool; we are a community and a family. We look forward to becoming a greater extension of the Avon Lake community.”

 

The Goddard School located in Avon Lake, OH can be found at 430 Avon Belden Road, Avon Lake, OH 44012. Please call 440-961-0328 or email AvonLakeOH@goddardschools.com. For general information and franchising opportunities, please visit www.goddardschoolfranchise.com.
