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

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 Management

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

    Pros

    Staff were friendly with eachother for the most part, parents were friendly. Some schedules were really great.

    Cons

    Inconsistent leave policies, pay was too low for the tasks given, too much stress put on teachers and staff to be number one.

    Advice to Management

    Be more consistent with your policies, increase pay
