Goddard Systems, LLC, manager of The Goddard School franchise system, today announced the appointment of Matt Speranza to the Goddard Systems Advisory Council.

Established in May 2021, the Goddard Systems Advisory Council includes 12 Goddard School franchisees representing four regions and 600 Goddard Schools from across the country. The council provides valuable advice, insights and perspectives to further The Goddard School’s long-standing position as the nation’s leading premier early childhood education provider.

“I am honored to join the Goddard Systems Advisory Council and serve as a leader and voice for our franchisee community,” said Speranza. “The future of Goddard has never been brighter and I look forward to helping navigate our path forward with an unwavering focus on providing high-quality care and education for families in Pennsylvania, Ohio and communities across the country.”
