    Pros

    Great Parents to work with
    High Standards for education
    Very Clean
    Nice Staff

    Cons

    Classrooms out of ratio-owners didn't stop enrolling children
    Management had favorites and didn't discipline when necessary
    Pay very low for what tuition cost
    Owner made an error in my health insurance paperwork and it ended up costing me out of my paychecks due to an error she admitted to.

    Advice to Management

    Don't play favorite with employees
    Pay attention to state regulations-the parents do and constantly called them because of ratios

    Pros

    Other teachers were supportive.
    Team based environment.

    Cons

    Management at the franchise in Peters Township, PA.
    $500 fee to leave your position without giving a 4 week notice.
    Contract during the school year with a 2 month of wages penalty if you break your contract.

    Advice to Management

    Goddard corporate needs to look into how individual franchises are being run, especially ones with high employee turnover. There's a reason why people don't want to work for you.
