Pros

Corporate is supportive.... School staff are hard working, dedicated professionals who are caring, tremendous teachers and directors

Cons

Balancing the needs of the kids with the need to make a profit is always challenging, but we somehow manage to do it..

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Corporate needs to get everyone rowing in the same direction. Great changes are taking place, but they need to occur faster

    Pros

    The Children were just amazing! They all have major potential. The Goddard Learning Standards are great. The online training was very helpful.

    Cons

    The owner is cheap, Instead of buying new things for the center he continously fixed things that should have been thrown away, such as a broken table in the toddler room. He never gave the same employee discount to each employee, some employees recieved free day care and others only recieved 50%. They also allowed employees to bring thier sick kids with them to work. They posted the negative reviews from licensing behind a plant in the front, so unless you were searching for it, you would never know it was there. Classrooms were out of ratio on several occasions as well. My child was not properly taken care of and got sick often because of the Owner allowed children to attend sick. And cell phones are a regular thing in most classrooms, one teacher was on her phone more than caring for the kids.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop lying to get people in the door, treat ALL your employees the same, and first and foremost, BE HONEST!
