As a staff member for Childrens' Kastle, there is not a day I don't look forward to coming into work. From the aides in each room all the way up to the owner, each and every employee of the company treats each child as if they are their very own! From the music in the hallway throughout the day to t... See More
We've been sending our child to Childrens Kastle for 2 years. We love the the staff , they are welcome, caring and truely there for the children. Also proximity to us cannot be beat!... See More
My kids have been at Childrens Kastle for about 2 1/2 years and I couldn't be happier. I was nervous about the whole 'daycare' thing and that they would just be a number mixed in the group and that's everything that they haven't been. They love all the teachers and look forward to coming to school ... See More
My husband and I send out two young children to Childrens Kastle Learning Center and it has been a WONDERFUL experience!! The leadership starts at the top with a caring & involved owner, Darlene, who is present every day in the organization. She knows all of the kids names and goes out of her way to ensure that the transitions as the kids progress through the different age rooms are perfectly smooth. The classroom teachers are wonderful too. Not only are they knowledgeable about the children's development but they also deeply care. Most of the teachers have been a part of CK for many years and their dedication shows. Our kids have flourished since starting at CK and we look forward to many more years of being a part of the Children's Kastle family!! We are very fortunate to have such a wonderful learning center in Lancaster, NY!
After trying multiple centers in the area, Children’s Kastle was recommended and we have not looked back! In the first few months we were floored at the amount of knowledge and experiences our 3 year old had been exposed to. The owner is on site daily, the staff is engaged, committed and sincerely loving. They don’t seem to have the turnover I encountered at other centers or the employment of recent high school graduates as head teachers. They are phenomenal at engaging the kids and fully utilizing all the resources they have available. We now have two kids there and are exceedingly pleased with the care and education!
I cannot say enough wonderful things about the teachers at CK. Just the other day, my toddler raced INTO the classroom and couldn't start her day fast enough. The staff really go the extra mile for our family. It's such a loving environment and we're happy to send our kids there. It is no longer proximate to our places of employment, but we continue to have our children attend because we think it's worth it.
Words cannot express how amazing this place is. My daughter comes home singing and telling stories about all of the fun she has with Miss Ruth, Miss Ashley, Miss Chelsie and Miss Courtney. She is so advanced for her age thanks to all of the learning that they do on a daily basis. I could not imagine her being anywhere else. Thank you for all that you do.
We just started our little one here in September and we are very happy with everyone at Childrens Kastle! The facility is very clean (super important to me), they encorporare many different aspects of learning throughout their days with gross motor, fine motor ,and sensory motor activities, and most of all our daughter loves going there! I highly recommend them ! :-)
I would recommend Childrens' Kastle Christian Learning Center. Mrs. Bartlett (owner) is trustworthy and honest. A true woman of integrity. She sees to it that her staff are well treated and that all her staff are above excellent with the children. I hope to enroll my grandson within the next year!!
We cannot thank the staff enough for being so wonderful! This place has exceeded our expectations. Most days when we pick our daughter up she does not want to leave. She is only 20 months and has learned SO MUCH! Teachers are so loving here! So far we have only gotten to really know Miss Jess, Diane, Amber and Courtney. They are amazing with the kids! Thank you Children's Kastle for all you do with these kids.

What a loving, nurturing environment! Our son has been attending for about a year and a half and we are amazed at how expressive and excited he is when he returns home in the evenings. The owner, Darlene, makes it a point to get to know each child individually, and really cares about their needs. Really appreciate that Christian values are encouraged, but don't feel overly forced. Highly recommend!
I have been sending my children to Children's Kastle for almost 12 years. Though we do not use the center on Walden anymore, our 2 youngest children continue to attend the summer camp. It's great to say they come home tired and happy. The staff are always cheerful (especially Liz!) and genuinely appear to like what they are doing. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone!
LOVE this place! Very clean, safe and secure! I was very nervous at first to put my only child into a school/daycare at such a young age but it was the best decision! Every staff member is delightful I trust them completely with my 3yo! There is even (Christian) children's music playing in the halls when you walk in. They use an app that updates you on every activity they do for the day with reminders, notes, and photos. Highly recommend this school! My daughter has retained so much since being here. She loves Miss Jodi and all of her teachers. I wish she could stay here til high school!
This is our first summer camp with Children's Kastle . My daughter absolutely loves going. Each day/week is filled with fun activities, themes and a field trip. The staff is so well organized and super friendly ! My daughter has a peanut allergy and they are always attentive and prefer to err on the side of caution. Making us very comfortable in sending her there.
My son has been at Children's Kastle for a little over a year now. He loves his school! The teachers are very loving and kind. You can tell that they all really care about the kids in their care.
If you live in the Lancaster area and are looking for a child care or learning center, look no further. My son has been going to the Childrens' Kastle since he was 6 weeks old, I looked at 3 other child care centers in Lancaster, but knew when I went on a tour, Childrens' Kastle was where I wanted my son to be. Their rooms for babies to school aged children have been a positive influence in my son's life. From activities to field trips, preparing my son for his school age years, and most importantly fostering the importance of being kind and caring, have helped my son become the outgoing and smart kid he is today. My son's spirit, kind personality, and his love for learning are because of the great staff @ the Childrens' Kastle. Schedule a tour, that's what I did over 8 years ago and it was by far the best choice I made for his child care, learning, and fun. Summer camp is also a great place for kids to have fun and learn.
Today was our first day. The staff helped comfort my 1.5 year old son (and myself) and make him feel right at home when we were a mess of tears at drop off time. My 4 year old daughter said she loves it here and didn't even want to leave. This is my first experience with a daycare and I feel blessed to have found children's kastle. Everybody is so hands on, and welcoming. I look forward to seeing how my babies grow with children's kastle!
I am blessed to have had the privilege of working at Childrens' Kastle over 10 years ago. As a mother, I can not imagine sending my child anywhere else. There are numerous teachers that I worked with back then that are still working there today. That says a lot about the owner, director and the rest of the administration staff. The employee turnover rate is uncommonly low. If Darlene cares that much about her staff, think about how much she loves and cares for the children!! We drive about 40 min each way to bring our daughter to school. It's worth every minute we've been stuck in traffic. Not only has she learned so much in the past 2 months but we are seeing significant changes in her behavior as well. She LOVES her school, her teachers and her peers. We have the peace of mind knowing she is safe and loved while she is there and the confidence that she is learning and growing each day she attends. Thank you Childrens' Kastle for all you do! I highly recommend enrolling your child or applying for employment. You won't regret it. We certainly don't. Keep up the wonderful work you do. It truly makes a difference. Xoxo
My son has been going to children's kastle for about two months now, they have made us feel just like family the moment we first walk in the doors. They truly care about my child's needs and his well being. I am so glad we decided on children's kastle!
Children's Kastle is an amazing second home for my children. Both of my babies are excited to come here everyday. My 3 year old has learned so much in the last year we have been here and my 8 year old loves her friends and teachers. I can not say enough about how amazing and friendly every teacher is. They all love my babies as if they were their own. I feel safe and happy when I drop them off in the morning, I know they are learning and having so much fun.
My son enjoys himself and is learning so much from the professional staff.
