If you were nearby NE Ralph Powell Road between Woods Chapel and Strother roads in Lee’s Summit on Tuesday, you might have caught a glimpse of construction underway and some people spiking gold shovels into the ground.

A groundbreaking ceremony was held on Tuesday, Oct. 29, to celebrate the construction of the newest Goddard School coming to Lee’s Summit (Lakewood).

The formal ceremony took place at the site of the new School, 3301 NE Ralph Powel Road, where more than a dozen people gathered to join in on the celebration. Those attending the event included members of the Chamber of Commerce, Lee’s Summit City Councilman Rob Binney, community members, along with family and friends of the owners, Abby and Shane Hendren.

“We saw a wonderful opportunity for a sustainable, lifelong business that would add value to the area we love and contribute to our community,” Abby said.

Abby will serve as the on-site of the School. Abby and her husband, Shane, saw there was a need for a high-quality early childhood education program that provides a play-based learning experience in a nurturing environment. That’s why they decided to open up a Goddard School.

The School has an anticipated opening date of spring 2020 and will be open from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. At capacity, the 10,000 square-foot-building will serve 170 children ages six months to six years old.

Once complete, the School’s décor will be themed around the Missouri outdoors and include wildlife native to the state and various natural wonders only found in Missouri – from the Ozark Mountains to Missouri forests, caves, lakes and more. The interior will be reflective of Missouri’s wildlife and landscapes and include cedar posts and natural stone accents.
