I am an employee

As a former teacher I can say that the stress level for teachers is extremely High due to lack of support from the owner. The child to teacher ratio is often times way over not only the Goddard standard but also the state standards. My ratio was 11 to 1. I often had as many as 16 by myself. I was by myself with 16 children during a lock down.There is a huge staff turnover and often times there is not enough staff to adequately care for the children. Yet the owner insist more children be allowed to enrolled. Children are allowed to come to school sick with little regard for the health of other students or staff. Parents were told tuition was raised in order to increase teachers pay. The owner then informed the teachers they would not be given a raise. I would not recommend this school for students or staff.

I just wanted to add that I worked at that hell hole and my daughter attend this school as well and everything that was said in the previous comment is absolutely true. Please don't take your child to this school all they care about is money. Not your child or there employees.

The management they allow to run these schools are a complete joke. The assistant director in Spring is 22 years old with no degree and her only qualification seems to be that she is friends with the director. The director bounces between one school and another and is never around. She didn't know basic information about how the school was run on a day to day level. The owner is the same and just lets the two run amok.

They are both incredibly rude, immature and unorganized. Teachers never have supplies available, it takes up to an hour to get a restroom break pretty often (I've seen teachers pretty much holding themselves), and the pay is low. They have pretty much come out and say that they will never give raises either. Also, they frequently engage in shady behavior like doctoring forms to look like they've done things they haven't. The teachers will almost never get time to create lessons plans and they will bully and insult them for it. If they are having trouble in a room or are stressed out, they will act like something is wrong with them because you can't "tough it out". I've seen teachers cry.

They penny pinch to a fault. They barely give our any decent amount of snacks to the children and all the toys are old and broken. I've seen the same puzzle for years go between all different classes at different developmental levels. Splash Days, the summer camp, literally just means they turn the sprinklers on - and some days they don't even manage that. Teachers wind up having to throw water on the kids using a cup.

There is an incredibly high turnover rate. Don't fall in love with any of the teachers because they will be out of there soon enough.

In summary, rude and incompetent front office that is CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP. You will pay out the nose for this garbage and your kids will suffer for it.
