KATY (Covering Katy News) – The Goddard School has a new location in Katy. The franchise focuses on preschool-age children. It is operated by franchisee Asli Remlinger, and her husband Kirk. It’s their third location in the Katy area.
Before opening her first location, Asli graduated with a degree in Business Administration from the University of Houston and worked in the oil and gas industry.
After having her first child, Asli chose to switch directions and pursue an education degree because she wanted to work with children. While holding a position as an elementary school teacher, Asli felt a desire to mix her knowledge of business with her passion for education and began researching preschool franchise opportunities. She eventually discovered The Goddard School and fell in love with its holistic, play-based curriculum.

In 2010, Asli opened The Goddard School located in Katy at Cinco Village Center. She decided to open a second Katy location at Ranch Point in 2013. She launched her third facility in 2017.
With each school opening, The Goddard School also has a local economic impact, creating an average of 20 to 25 jobs within the community.
“Having been a member of the Katy community for 25 years, I’ve always had the desire to give back to my home in some way,” said owner Asli Remlinger. “The Goddard School has allowed me to make an impact in the lives of hundreds of families by providing an unmatched, quality early childhood education program, and I’m proud to continue growing The Goddard School’s presence in Katy.”
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.
