I have been working at The Goddard School full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Lots of freedom to design curriculum. Amazing healthcare package with low out of pocket costs. Short term disability benefits and such. Raises are performance based percentages.

Cons

Inconsistencies among management. Owner makes the calls to close early to not open due to weather- cares more about money than anything. Directors are gossipy and unprofessional

Advice to Management

Stay connected to your employees and don't be condescending or patronizing

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

    Pros

    Good supportive company. This is a franchise. The owner of my school was very is to work for and family friendly while also business minded.

    Cons

    Staff turnover. Sometimes very long hours when short staffed and no subsitites.

    Advice to Management

    If offering a higher pay rate is not an option to retain staff maybe offering better benefits like tuition assistance would attract better quality teachers/teacher aides and reduce staff turnover. That will also make the parents and children happier.
