Your Child Will Enjoy our Preschool Junior Program!
3 Years Old
At the age of 3, children are beginning to develop special friendships and to interact with their peers. The Preschool Junior room for 3 year olds at Childrens’ Kastle offers a warm, nurturing, structured, and fun environment in which your child will learn, grow, and thrive.
Teachers are facilitators and assist with problem solving. Childrens’ Kastle preschool programs help your 3 year old begin the transition to a more formal education environment. As kindergarten readiness is a process, academic small groups are introduced during our Pre-K for 3 year olds preschool programs. Activities will be simplified or enhanced as appropriate to meet the developmental needs of your child.

Happy Parents Say
“We are so blessed to have such wonderful people teach, love and care for our son Dominick. He loves coming to daycare. We never have to worry about him because we know he is in great care. You provide him with a safe environment to learn and grow. Our expectations have been exceeded with the level of care you all have given him. We cannot thank you enough for the time you put in everyday to care for our son. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!”Megan, Rich and Dominick Pavetto
“Childrens’ Kastle, for our family, has been a welcoming place. I think back to that first day back in January 2005, when I had to leave my little, vulnerable 3 month old, I remember thinking “How can I do this?” Well, it was the comforting arms of Debbie who hugged me as I cried, and reassured me that Crosby would be fine, and so would I, while still understanding how difficult it was to have to go back to work full time. I think I called 2 or 3 times that morning just to make sure he was OK, and picked him up after only a half a day. Never was I judged or told to leave, and was assured I could call anytime. We are proud to say that all 3 of our children have been cared for by Debbie-she has been one of the constants, and such a comfort to our family. She is always there to offer a cheerful smile and hello in the morning, and never forgets any of the children that she has cared for.”Danielle Juliano
“We began sending our son to Childrens’ Kastle from 8 weeks old. He was in the program through the start of kindergarten and still attends the after school program today. My daughter now attends Childrens’ Kastle and will follow the same pattern. We found with our son who was going to be a young 5 year old entering kindergarten that he was more than ready when tested to begin school and we attribute a great deal of that to the curriculum at Childrens’ Kastle. We know we will have the same with our daughter. We highly recommend Childrens’ Kastle.”Sue and Todd Puccio
