Preschool Programs

CASTLE's preschool program is designed to meet the needs of children in Colchester and surrounding communities. Our NAEYC Accredited program provides opportunities to explore the world of science, math, language, creative arts, music and movement through creative exploration. Emphasis is placed on learning activities which enhance each child's intellectual, social, emotional and physical development. Our professional early childhood educators use the Connecticut Early Learning Development Standards (ELDS) enabling them to plan curriculum and assess each child's development as they grow and prepare for kindergarten.
