Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Wonderful co-workers, great families, low child turnover, high standards for curriculum and cleanliness

Cons

Complete void of communication from the owner & director. Unprofessional behavior of owner & director. Mandatory school closings, did not get paid for (unless you used personal PTO)

Advice to Management

Communicate with your teachers more, let your staff know that they are appreciated
