Wonderful children and families, terrible ownership

Preschool Teacher (Former Employee)
Rancho Cordova, CA

I worked at The Goddard School full-time for more than a year

ProsThe 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.

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

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
