Director-Mrs. Catrina Hurst
My name is Catrina Hurst and I am the owner/director of Cole’s Castle Learning Center of Performing Arts. Our mission is to provide quality education in a safe environment. I started my childcare business in 2003 in the lower level of my home and expanded to this center two years later. Caring, nurturing and providing for children is our number one priority. Our children receive tender and loving care from the gentle age of 6 weeks to twelve years of age. I believe it is very important for all children to have an opportunity to learn and receive positive instruction on morals, respect, lifeskills, education, values, etiquette and ethics regardless of their ethnic or social status. My mother often sacrificed her life, for my five sisters and I focusing on the importance of having a well balanced, christian, academic and socially structured life and has instructed me to do the same. I am truly grateful for the growth of Cole’s Castle which has expanded from an in home daycare to a flourishing Center of Performing Arts. Our curriculum, courses and classes are geared to each individual level according to age and need. Interacting daily with our children and families has promoted a strong union as we continue to build solid and lasting relationships. The annual activities and programs consistently involve all children, parents and staff on a regular basis. These activities include Dance, Drama, Choir, Art, Sewing/Fashion/Modeling, Teen Mother's, Christmas Dinner, Scholarship Fashion Benefit, Family Picnic, Graduation ceremony, Clothes Closet, Penny & Food Drives, Transportation Service, Internship Programs, Entrepreneurship , Counseling and Mentoring Programs, Proms for Mom's, Parent Resource Fairs, and other events to pull in our males like our annual Dad vs. Dad Basketball game .
