The Goddard School, a nationally acclaimed early childhood education franchise, partnered with Staples, Inc., to open its first location in Framingham, bringing the play- and inquiry-based learning experience to area families. The Goddard School of Framingham is the first location for co-owners Vona and Karim Hill. Vona, the on-site owner of the school, has extended experience as a business owner, founding Managing Perspectives, LLC, Black Vanguard Alliance as well as writing the children’s book series “Little Miss Everything.” The Hills are partnering with seasoned Goddard School franchisees Mark Anthony Hunter and Johann Hunter, who own The Goddard School of Middleton and The Goddard School of Saugus.
Located at 600 Staples Drive on the Staples campus in a newly renovated facility, this nearly 17,000 square-foot early childhood education center has 17 classrooms to provide care for and educate approximately 200 children ages six weeks to six years old. Additionally, the school adds approximately 45 teaching jobs to the community.
