Pros

Great co-workers, great management, great families. Every day was different and pretty face paced. Good benefits and vacation time.

Cons

The discipline policies are very ineffective, especially when you have a challenging child. Also, for how hard you work and how much you invest into the children and their families, the pay feels awfully low (even though Goddard pays great for a child-care center).

Advice to Management

The philosophy of discipline that the school holds is very outdated and ineffective. They need to implement better polices for the continued health and development of children who struggle behaviorally.

    Pros

    The children and families is what keeps the teachers at the school. The teachers themselves are close and provide the much needed support to each other.

    Cons

    Minimal pay for preschool teaching. Minimal benefits. Extremely high turn over rate. No support provided for curriculum writing, issues in the classroom, etc. Teachers opinions and insight does not matter to the owner or directors. The owner has no teaching experience and solely makes decisions and how to make the most money. He treats employees terrible as if they should be lucky to be working for him. Do not work their because soon enough you will be looking for a new job because you want to get out.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees BETTER, make decisions based on the best interest of children and not solely money.

    Pros

    The Goddard School meets high standards of excellence. Every classroom plans age appropriate activities. School is NAEYC accredited.

    Cons

    The Goddard School does not pay their teachers well at all. Lead teachers with a college degree still make less than $10 an hour.
