THIS Goddard in particular is a disappointment. Having had my child enrolled in another Goddard in another city previously where the care and service was EXCELLENT, I would definitely reconsider putting my child at this facility. It is a neverending merry go round of teachers. I came to expect not knowing who will be my child's teacher day in and day out (due to firings, resignations, or just general switching). Over the course of a year, my child saw approx. 6 teacher changes. Management is really rude. Particularly the co-owner John. I tried to deal with him as little as possible because he simply lacks the ability to treat people with respect. Tuition is bait and switch, coming in under one fee only to find it increase substantially before you can blink. Great teachers though (director is nice enough and even somewhat effective only when it doesn't concern an absurd management decision). That is the only bright spot in the whole place and the only reason why my child stayed as long as she did. I have heard rumors of management bouncing teachers' checks, cutting pay, and other things, but I can only speak to what I know firsthand. My friend still has a child there (uncontrollable circumstances) and they recently had the federal lunch program taken away due to lying on applications so they could get it for free knowing the children do not qualify. And right now he's trying to find substitute child care due to the center being closed for a week and a half for Christmas! I have been to great daycares and bad ones. This is somewhere in the middle but unfortunately closer to bad than good.
