Enriching & Rewarding.

Assistant Teacher (Former Employee)

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

ConsThe 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Advice to Senior ManagementThe philosophy of discipline that the school holds is very outdated and ineffective.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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
