Mission: We focus on building each child’s emotional, academic, social, creative and physical skills to provide a well-rounded experience and ensure each child becomes a confident, joyful learner who is fully prepared for school and life.
I have been working at The Goddard School full-time (Less than a year)
The kids! If you love watching children grow everyday and truly make a difference in their lives, it’s a great place. I learned more here in a few months than I did in years at another early childhood center. I was taught lesson planning and how to do individual lesson plans. Management is pretty flexible with days off. Allows two people in the center to be off on the same day. Parents overall are amazing.
The pay. I’m a recent college grad and even with a degree, I make less than all of my friends who work entry level jobs. What I do in a day doesn’t add up to what I make. Changing diapers, dealing with sick children, struggling with children that won’t listen. I feel like I should get paid more and this might be the reason I eventually leave. Some gossip happens at my center which isn’t surprising considering we work with all women.
I applied online. I interviewed at The Goddard School (Boston, MA).
The director was extremely nice and welcoming. Great environment and fun place to be a part of. There was a lot going on so there were a few distractions, but overall I enjoyed the process.
