A good idea, but not enough checks and balances.

I worked at The Goddard School full-time (less than an year)

Pros

The center is beautiful, the parents were involved and caring and the children were wonderful. The curriculum was diverse and easily tailored to fit individual classes.

Cons

As a franchise, owners do not have to be knowledgeable in early childhood best practices. For this reason, they can run their schools however they see fit, whether that be for the benefit of the children and families, or for their own reasons. At this school, the owner disregarded advice from the directors she hired and proceeded to engage in completely inappropriate and unprofessional acts towards staff members. Company checks came too late, and any actions taken to rectify the situations that occurred were ineffective.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you have hired a director, based on his/her experience and expertise in the early childhood field, be sure to let him/her use that knowledge to run the school. This is the only way to keep a school at capacity, and to hire -and retain- quality teachers.

    Pros

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

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