Transitioning infants into toddlers

Watching your infant develop into a toddler at Castle Academy is an extremely precious time.

Your infant will experience the warmth, love and attention we provide to our childrens’ safety, well being and education. Before making your decision, you will share in the experience of our facility. Meet your child’s Teachers, our Administrator and Tracy and John Castle (the owners). It’s important to make sure there is a good fit and that Castle Academy is the right place for all our children.

Life in the Roley Poley Care Program

Once accepted into Castle Academy, every child becomes a part of our family. There’s a constant warm and loving care given to every child throughout the day. The room is uniquely designed to provide a comfortable natural light and windows that open up for fresh air. There’s more than enough room to care for your child needs.

Each day all surfaces are sprayed with bleach to make sure the room is properly sanitized. Throughout the day the room and toys are cleaned and sanitized. Trash is frequently removed from the room to control odors. Cleanliness is a critical part of your infant daily childcare.

While you’re busy at work you will have the peace of mind knowing that your infant is being care for on its own schedule. They eat, sleep, play and learn on their own schedule. Our parents know they will receive a daily report. There is a phone in every room and parents are encouraged to call their child specific room for an update whenever they want too.

Diapers are changed every 2 hours or sooner if necessary. Your infants comfort is foremost in everyone mind.
