I worked at The Goddard School full-time (More than a year)

Pros

There were great families and good kids.Constant training to help improve your teaching. Always provided enough materials.

Cons

The management was terrible and unproductive. Managment always talked down to teachers and made them feel insuffcient. Lazy and only cared only about profit. Did not care about teachers.

Advice to Management

Have management who will work wih employees not just in best intrests of owner

    I worked at The Goddard School full-time (Less than a year)

    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!
