I have been working at The Goddard School full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Supportive and communicative management and owners, hardworking staff, wonderful families, benefits available, built-in vacation for Christmas holiday, ongoing staff training sessions

Cons

Pay rate is low, even for those with higher education degrees; no summer time off; sometimes gets a bit gossipy

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't be afraid to make decisions without consulting staff to "feel it out."

    I worked at The Goddard School full-time (more than 3 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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