If a school where "no" and "stop" is your kind of school... Look no further.

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

Pros

Quality of Staff
High Income Parents

Cons

I was kicked by an emotionally disturbed child and the manager told ME to apologize for upsetting the child. I have a bachelors degree and a great deal of experience in ECE and I have never been more appalled at the lack of discipline in a school. In addition to that whenever a child would hit another child we were not allowed to tell them "no" or "stop" as well as being forbidden by management to let either parent know. It was standard to lie about a child's behavior in order to keep the wealthy parents happy. Ugh. It makes my skin crawl just thinking about working there.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The Goddard School needs more standards for behavior at a corporate level as well as more protection for employees!

    Pros

    The teachers at the Goddard School were dedicated and attentive to all children that attended & the families were a joy to work for.

    Cons

    The school was often understaffed and had a high turn over rater- I believe this was due to the pay being so low that it was difficult to keep the best & most qualified teachers around for too long.
