Hi, my name is Mrs. Mary! I have been working at this school for 13 years. I am a teacher in the Teddy Bears classroom. When I am not working, I enjoy reading and spending time with my family. I love working with the babies and I always cater to their needs. I love to treat them with respect and happiness throughout the day 🙂

Great school! We have a child in both pre kindergarten and baby class. Both have done really well. I cannot say enough about how well they are cared for each day. I definitely feel like my daughter will be a lot more ready now for the kindergarten transition. Covid precautions have been taken seriously as well :) very happy here!

I absolutely LOVE Cadence Academy, we feel so fortunate to have a spot here for our son. He's been attending since he was 5 months and it's been amazing. You can just tell that all the teachers care so deeply for your child and love to see how they progress, every milestone, change, etc. He's still in the infant room but will be moving up soon and even though I'll be sad because he won't be with Miss. Lorena, Noell and Johnnica as much anymore - I know the new teachers will be just as loving and great!

Handing over your children to other adults is probably the most trust you can place in anyone. And Cadence is 100% worthy of that trust. Every teacher and director there is full of love and kindness. The school has great programming, values diversity, equity and inclusion and has handled the ins and outs of the COVID-19 crisis with professionalism, care and consideration.It warms my heart to see my little one so excited to go to school every day and spend time with her teachers and friends her age. And I love the pictures I get to see of her during her time away from me!
