We have been so happy with Children's Kastle. We looked at several daycare centers before deciding on here. The facility is warm, bright and welcoming with plenty of green space outside for the kids to play on (one place we looked at was only blacktop outside and inside was not brightly lit). The staff is fantastic! They are friendly, and truly care about the well being of your child, even the teachers who are not usually in the classroom know the other kids and just go that step beyond with interactions. Our son is always happy to be dropped off and is in a good mood when we pick him up. I love having the Tadpoles app and getting pictures during the day of him. They capture and share pictures of wonderful and sweet moments during the day.
Our son joined the Children's Kastle Freshman room this summer and has loved it. Children's Kastle made a very professional impression on us with our very first phone call. When we toured the facility, we found that it was also a very kind and caring place in additional to be very professional. The facility is clean, everyone is super friendly, and we love that we get photos of our son and a full written report sent to us at the end of the day. We always feel welcomed to ask any questions or call with any issues. I know my son is in good hand's when we drop him off and we are very happy that we found Children's Kastle.
Our son has been going here since Sept 2017 and it has been a truly wonderful experience. We get photos of him during the day (especially helpful in the beginning for this worried mama!) and a full written report sent to us at the end of each day. They have a structured lesson plan so even at 2 years old it’s similar to preschool. He loves going to “school” and his teachers. Highly recommend Children’s Kastle!
We are super pleased with the structure of classrooms, teachers and aides. The hours are very flexible and the kids always have fun learning and a christian learning curriculum is a great bonus for us. We look forward to continuing to send our little ones through the system!
Staff is very caring, friendly and takes time with all students and parents. We love that our son has a schedule during the day with various learning and social activities even as a young toddler. Children’s Kastle truly has a family feel!
Such a wonderful place with very friendly and caring staff.
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.
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 transition to the school is 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!
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!
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.
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
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.
My husband and I highly recommend Children’s Kastle daycare. They provide a wonderful, loving environment for children to feel safe and grow. Three years ago when we were blessed to become first time parents, we were also apprehensive about leaving our baby girl with someone other than family. Our first experience was in the infant room, and the teachers at Children’s Kastle really did a wonderful job to help relieve our fear and ease our transition. Seeing how well our daughter has done, when our son was born, we wanted him to have the same experience she started with to put him on the right path. Being a teacher myself, I know the importance of the learning foundation. Our children have learned so much from the teachers at Children’s Kastle. If you are looking for a quality daycare, please consider Children’s Kastle.
