Alistar's Play Place
Review from the Fall 2021 Early Childhood Education SurveyType of facility: Daycare Review: Alistar's is a wonderful family daycare. Ms. George is a loving teacher who has an absolute passion for working with children. From day 1, we felt comfortable dropping off our daughter (9 months old). Ms. George supported our feeding preferences and cooks delicious meals for the children. She teaches the children life and academic skills, as well as manners. Ms. George values experiential learning and outdoor play. Each day, we know our daughter is safe, loved and learning. The only negative I see is that Ms. George's communication can be deemed "old school". She communicates best in person at pick up or drop off. What amenities does the facility provide? Has outdoor space, Has after-school options, Has early morning hours, Provides meals, Sometimes, with guardian's permission, children go on trips around the city. Is there anything you would like to add about how the school handled the pandemic? Parents are not allowed in the daycare space. Children are dropped off/picked up at the door. Teachers and children over 2 wear masks.
Review from the Fall 2021 Early Childhood Education SurveyType of facility: Daycare Review: In-home daycare run by Ms George who is very loving with the children, who she refers to as "her family." She takes them outside for walks everyday and on adventures to the botanic gardens, parks, playgrounds, etc. There is an outdoor area and the children have a small garden they tend to. She offers a date-night for parents every few months. Our toddler always comes home with new words, counting, etc. She does not give a lot of detail in communication with parents so you have to be okay with that, which can be hard in the beginning. What amenities does the facility provide? Has outdoor space, Has after-school options, Has early morning hours, Provides meals Is there anything you would like to add about how the school handled the pandemic? Started once vaccination was widespread -- all staff vaccinated, spend time outdoors, wear masks, take temperatures, etc.
Review from the 2016/2017 PSP Daycare, Preschool, PreK, Kindergarten SurveyAbout the facility: Has outdoor space, Has afterschool options, Provides meals Review: Really appreciate Ms George. She's got a passion for children and goes above and beyond.
Review submitted via the PSP Daycare/Preschool 2016 SurveyMs. George is a great teacher and really cares about the kids. She is tough (very big on manners, not interrupting adults, etc) but also very loving. I think this is a great balance. She does all kinds of special days and activities with them - taking them out regularly to the park and playgrounds. On Easter she took them to a restaurant in fancy outfits. She has parent involvement week, where parents share about their jobs or a skill. She also does a night where parents can leave the kids late to have a date night at no extra fee. She really cares about their growth and development.
