Tall Pines School / Tall Pines School - good or not?
We enrolled our child in the KinderCasa classroom at Tall Pines School under the assumption that private school would provide a nurturing and safe environment for our child. Well, we got a rude awakening. Within the first 2 days our child complained that the teacher did not treat all the children the same.
Our child was missing from the classroom and was later found crouching in the men’s washroom. As a new student and sensing the teacher’s dislike, our child found solace in the men’s washroom. Mind you, the little ones are allowed to go to either the women’s or men’s washroom alone.
When our child enrolled at Tall Pines School, our child was already reading and writing. We found out that at $10,800/yr, our child was not being taught anything. We requested the binders and got a few pages of numbers and letters. Our child did not do any drawing or coloring or anything else. Our child was left to do whatever until the end of the day.
There is more than meets the eyes at Tall Pines School. I encourage parents to do due diligence before enrolling their children. Ask questions and check to make sure that someone’s personal or religious beliefs do not impact your child in a classroom. Meet with teachers to make sure that your child has a good fit. As a multicultural society, it is easy to overlook critical signs that can have long reaching impact on young minds.
