Carlisle School Reviews
Wonderful preschool, great teachers!
The Carlisle School (TCS) is an unassuming house sandwiched between other businesses. Don't discount the school based on the outward appearance though. This school is a little treasure. You won't find kids playing with electronic devices, instead you'll hear their laughter and squealing because they're playing outside. Most of the toys they have for children of all ages are non-battery operated. You'll find puzzles, blocks, play kitchen, a large train set, and much more. Children are free to use their imaginations and develop social skills through interacting with one another (instead of being glued to electronic devices).
The school is an old property, like many of the house businesses in this area, but don't let that turn you away. The children are constantly learning in formal and informal ways. My son began attending TCS about 4 months ago, when he turned 1.5 years old. He has grown so much since he started there, and this is due to the love and care from Dr. C, Mrs. C, Ms. Dina, and Ms. Maria.
The children are all treated with such love, care, and compassion. Because of this, they learn to treat others with the same respect, regardless of age. The other children have also been instrumental in helping my son adjust to his new surroundings. They greet him with excitement, hold his hand on the playground, help him up when he falls, and help feed him.
I highly recommend this school to anyone!
The crowning jewel of this school is Mrs. Carlisle. Her Kindergarten has prepared children for life for over thirty years. Her range and depth of teaching are outshone only by her love and devotion to the children under her care. She doesn't prepare children for First Grade; she prepares them for learning at every level. She embodies the best sense of what the true teaching-learning process requires. Her Kindergarten graduates go out with strong reading and math skills in their minds and the poetry of Shakespeare, Wordsworth, Frost, and others in their hearts--not to mention a love for world cultures and for music and the visual arts equally well informed and developed in each of her children.
