CASTLE has been serving the Colchester, CT community since 1991. CASTLE is a leading provider of before and after school care and education for children in grades K-8. We also provide a full summer program as well as a NAEYC Accredited preschool. Our programs have achieved national recognition and accreditation and continue to be very much in demand. Our curriculum is both educational and play based with homework assistance and a variety of developmentally appropriate activities offered each day.

"I chose CASTLE because unlike most daycare centers it is a non-profit organization that reinvests in staff, programs and children.

I have been thoroughly satisfied with all that CASTLE has to offer."  -CASTLE Parent
