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

Doesn't Recommend

No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Kids are great! Benefits available that are not options at "daycare" centers. Teachers work hard and are up to date in training.

    Cons

    Franchise operators often do not follow their own employee handbooks. Rules and policies change at whim. Staff is not treated fairly or are not appreciated. Pay is docked for working overtime even when required by management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you make rules, have them apply consistently and follow them. Pay staff for hours worked.

    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."
