Over worked, under appreciated, too much gossip and management never has your back. Did not get the training I needed. Its almost like they set you up to fail. I trained my replacement and didn't even know it. Went on vacation a lead and came back a float. Horrible place to work. Extremely shady, no communication.

Overworked, underappreciated and outrageous expectations. Management was unorganized, gossiped about everyone and did not care about employees.

Low pay. Ridiculously unattainable expectations. This establishment is about making money, not caring for the kids or supporting the people who work there. Stay away.

Management was quite poor, and they did not provide any support. Many problems arose in my classroom in which my owners and directors never wanted to step in to assist or even give direction. I asked multiple times for new strategies and was told that “they would think about it”. I became fed up of the lack of support and so I left. They also employed many college students while were inconsistent, negative, and ironically uneducated in the specific area of child development.

I didn’t. I loved myjob and the children. I wish I could say what happened but can’t. I do know they don’t have your back. I’m the 3rd teacher that had to leave the Goddard School. Sad.

Directors and management give very little support for the teachers, I felt there was a lack of concern for the children. Starting to think this is a Goddard thing.

The directors were not very supportive with teachers. They expect a lot from teachers and paid so little. They cared more about money than well being of teachers.
