My son has been going to Cadence since he was 3 months and it has been nothing but a great experience for me and for him! The teachers and management are all so amazing and so very helpful! I know my son is in good hands here and I never have to worry 😊

We had started our three year old (now four year old) in Cadence Academy at Alhambra in November 2021. We really enjoyed staying with Cadence, the teachers, staffs and the directors were super nice. They were professional, promptly replying to our emails and queries, uploading activities throughout the day with pictures and notes, and also notifying us very promptly if our kid felt sick or got bumped into. I really miss seeing the pictures and daily notes after my kid transitioned to Jr-K at a different school. The teachers were super nice taking care of the learning activities and well emotional ups and downs of the kids. I felt that kids at this age are specially vulnerable to changes in care-giving environment and Cadence specifically took care of that, my daughter never missed her mom or dad when she was at school with Ms. Vang. The classrooms are super clean with daily/weekly activities posted on the board. Being parents with challenging jobs we hardly got time during the day for our kid but we were relieved that she was in reliable environment throughout the day at Cadence. We were, are and will always be happy with Cadence and would definitely recommend to our friends and family.

My son can’t wait to go to school every morning and he hates leaving! I am glad he is in good hands everyday and he is learning a lot. He is a lot more social and has learned to trust the teachers through their good care. I like getting daily updates and the open door policy. I feel at ease knowing my son is happy and thriving at Cadence Academy! This is my third child at the center and they all have had great experiences. Cadence has become like family!
