About us — Meet the school

We are committed to excellence and to delivering the highest quality of care and educational programs to our children and families.

Castle Pines Academy is proud to be the first locally owned and operated childcare center to provide early childhood education and quality child care in a loving and secure environment. We provide daily programs for children from 6 months up to 6 years old and we provide before and after school activities for children up to 12 years old. Our center offers 10 individual classrooms and a large shared central space allowing children the opportunity to experience special classes outside their own room. We open at 6:30 a.m. with quiet time and free play for children to gently adjust to arriving at school early. Children can rest, eat, or play. We finish our days at 6:00 p.m. and our teachers are always ready to discuss a child's day with parents. One of our primary priorities is safety. This includes the safety of our children as well as our safety policies, and a safe and clean physical environment. This in turn provides the foundation for our staff to create a quality learning environment for every child to excel every day.

Our carefully designed curriculum facilitates learning with a play-based approach customized for each classroom. We view learning as a process that requires a balance between child-initiated and staff-initiated activities. These activities stimulate the Developmental Domains in each child every day. Our success is based on every child leaving our school feeling loved and having learned about him or her-self and the world around us.

Our Mission

It is our goal to provide quality programs for children in a loving, safe and secure environment. Our mission is to offer programs and an environment that help children, families, and teachers work together to the best of their abilities.

We recognize that each child is unique. Each child is given the guidance, compassion, and support they need from our teaching staff. Parent involvement is welcome and supported. At Castle Pines Academy we recognize that each child's success is dependent on unified support from teachers and family.

Our Philosophy

Here at Castle Pines Academy we believe that our children deserve an environment that challenges them, guides them, and encourages them to explore their world in a manner that makes learning fun and builds a child's interpersonal skills. With the fast-paced world we live in, our children experience more at an early age than ever before. We believe that children benefit from interactive learning in a supportive and creative classroom. Children discover the fun in the academic basics of science, math, computers, and language arts. This is then complimented by energetic and exciting individual choice exploration in music, art, fitness, and dramatic play. The key is to balance and build an academic interest with a playful approach for children to be excited to come to school and learn.
