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!

    I have been working at The Goddard School full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits; working relationships; balance between family and school; amazing opportunities within each school; family atmosphere

    Cons

    Space and storage are at a premium

    Advice to Management

    Continue to support the teachers and directors. Money is important, but at the end of the day, the best schools in the chain are the schools with tenured teachers and happy parents.
