PEACHTREE CITY, GA (February 10, 2018)Heena Patel, onsite owner of the newest Goddard School preschool in Georgia, is bringing her passion for teaching to a community she fell in love with.

The preschool, located at 264 S. Peachtree Pkwy, is hosting a grand opening celebration for families throughout the community on Saturday, February 10, from 10 AM to noon.

As the preschool’s onsite owner, Patel said she is looking forward to bringing her experience as a teacher to the Peachtree City community. She spent the past 10 years as a teacher in both public and private schools, earned her doctorate in educational administration from the University of Georgia, and is certified in educational leadership, early childhood education and school law.

Although she lives in Atlanta with her husband, Ronak, a dentist at his self-owned practice, and their one-year-old daughter, they fell in love with Peachtree City’s family-focused, tight-knit community.

“It takes a village to raise a child,” Patel said. “Our family, friends and community play critical roles in a child’s social and educational development. Opening The Goddard School preschool is giving me the opportunity to be a part of that village that will help guide young children through their learning adventure.”

During her time as a teacher, Patel taught children who attended The Goddard School preschools, and she was impressed by the students’ social and academic readiness. She said she wants to show others how children’s academic growth benefits from play-based learning.

The Goddard School’s play-based F.L.EX.® Learning Program (Fun Learning Experience), 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.

“Learning should always be fun for our children. The F.L.EX.® framework allows teachers to continuously assess our students’ academic growth and needs, and to prepare individualize lesson plans to teach children in an enjoyable way,” Patel said. “Building self-confidence in academics at a young age is key to educational success.”
