Amy Emann has used her love of teaching to go into business for herself.
Emann, a Butler resident, has opened a Goddard School in Fairfield. The school opened a few days ago.
“Goddard Schools have proven methods that ensure the children have the skills they need to succeed,” Emann said. “Just like how there isn’t a cookie-cutter curriculum, we don’t have cookie-cutter kids. It’s not one size fits all.”
Goddard schools are independent learning institutions that cater to children 6-weeks to preschool-age.
Emann was the educational director at the Wayne Goddard School for seven years. She oversaw all educational aspects of the school, including reviewing lesson plans. She has a bachelor’s degree in elementary education from Rowan University.
“Now I’m focusing on the business side of things,” Emann said. “But, this isn’t just a business. We’re laying the foundation for hundreds of children who come through our doors. That’s what we’re doing: laying the foundation down for future generations.”
Emann opened the new school with Kimberly Scott, owner of the Goddard School in Wayne.
Scott spoke highly of Emann.
“She cares for the kids very much,” Scott said.
