The Goddard School

Goddard Systems, Inc. (GSI), the franchisor of The Goddard School, is headquartered in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania. It’s consistently named one of the top childcare systems in the United States, and currently licenses more than 500 franchised schools with more than 65,000 students in 37 states.


Franchisees of The Goddard School are increasingly using Amazon Business to facilitate getting center directors the supplies they need quickly, so they can focus their time on delivering quality early childhood education for future social and academic success. Salman Ahmad, a franchisee who’s passionate about quality childcare with 40 staff members and 200 enrolled students, currently operates one center, but has plans for future expansion.

 

He said, “From lawn mowers to refrigerators, to crayons, we get everything we need from Amazon Business. The convenience, ease of use, and all the different choices available - all of it is great. It saves us time from having people run to the store. We have three center directors that use the account; I just see the purchases, approve them, and they’re delivered. It’s just hard to beat that value proposition for us.”

Perfect Start Learning

Perfect Start Learning is a Preschool located in Edwards, California. Perfect Start is located in an area where there are only a few educational supply stores, with the closest one being nearly 3 hours away. Perfect Start started using Amazon Business two years ago to order items from books and education tools to cleaning supplies.

 

Tessie Ragan, owner and preschool teacher at Perfect Start said, “Amazon Business allowed me to order all the supplies I need without blowing my budget in shipping costs or fuel. I am able to have my cleaning supplies shipped immediately in bulk which has lowered my weekly expenses and stay within budget when it comes to updating equipment and planning projects.”

 

Quick delivery with reasonable prices are what Perfect Start have been looking for. “Getting my supplies within 1 to 2 days is a big deal when running a family child care business.” She added, “I managed to cut my monthly expenses budget by at least 40 percent a month with bulk ordering. 95 percent of all equipment and supplies I have been looking for I have been able to find and order on Amazon Business for a reasonable price and with good quality.”
