About Cadence Academy Preschool, Canton

Joni’s Child Care & Preschool is now Cadence Academy Preschool! Cadence Academy Preschool believes that all children are loving, inquisitive beings in a constant state of learning. A careful balance of structured activities, free choice, self-expression, and situational teaching provides varied opportunities to learn and develop. Emphasis is placed on process over product and children are encouraged to move toward increasing independence, both socially and academically.

Children are encouraged to observe the environment around them, ask questions, and offer answers. Children are capable of demonstrating manners and respect for themselves and others. Teachers are facilitators, role models, and cheerleaders.

Our Programs

Our Mission

To create a happy and healthy child care environment based upon positive reinforcement and respect.

All programming is designed to meet one or more of the following goals:

  1. Create an environment that encourages the desire for the learning process.
  2. Teach respect for self and others.
  3. Provide developmentally appropriate learning opportunities to stimulate and encourage fine and gross motor skills, cognitive development, socio-emotional development and other learning skills.

NAEYC Accreditation

NAEYC Accreditation logoThis is a rigorous set of standards beyond those required by the State of Connecticut. A nationally trained team of inspectors spend several days in each program reviewing all aspects of the curriculum, teacher qualifications, interactions, communications and management. It takes several years to complete the accreditation process and then must be maintained through annual reporting systems, unannounced visits, and emerging standards.

Open Door Policy

Communication is critical to meeting the individualized needs of each family. Starting at the initial tour and continuing throughout our years together, we strive to maintain open, honest, and informative interactions. All Joni’s programs maintain an “Open Door Policy”, encouraging families to visit and participate in all areas of a day’s events.

Accreditations

NAEYC Accreditation

Every child deserves access to high-quality early learning experiences. NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children) has set 10 standards for early childhood programs that can help families make the right choice when they are looking for a child care center, preschool, or kindergarten. The standards and criteria are also the foundation of the NAEYC Accreditation system for early childhood programs. To earn NAEYC Accreditation, schools must go through an extensive self-study and quality-improvement process, followed by an on-site visit by NAEYC Assessors to verify and ensure that the program meets each of the ten program standards, and hundreds of corresponding individual criteria. NAEYC-accredited programs are always prepared for unannounced quality-assurance visits during their accreditation term, which lasts for five years. In the 30 years since NAEYC Accreditation was established, it has become a widely recognized sign of high-quality early childhood education. More than 7,000 programs are currently accredited by NAEYC—less than 10 percent of all child care centers, preschools, and kindergartens nationally achieve this recognition.

My son has been going to cadence for about a year now and I have loved watching him excel. Ms. Misty has been incredible and has done such a fantastic job teaching him. We are looking forward to Pre-k.

Our 3-year-old son has really blossomed at Cadence since we started just over a year ago. He had been isolated at home with us during COVID, and we were concerned about his socialization. The teachers and staff at Cadence have made that place a secure, fun part of Cooper's routine. His vocabulary, which was a little slow, grew very quickly. He thrives on the group play and art that is offered. He's a picky eater, and the staff have worked hard to offer him multiple options so that he's getting nutrients. Cooper loves his teachers, and it's clear that they love him back. Thank you Cadence!

We love our Daughter's teachers, Ms. Abby and Ms. Kynara love her so much, you can just tell! They have taken the time to learn what her (ASL) signs are that she uses at home and incorporate them into communicating with her both verbally and non-verbally in the classroom. They have taken the time to really get to know her and play songs they find she loves as well as knowing that she loves to go outside. When the weather is nice they make the effort to take her class outside even though they are only 14-19 months old (Which is no small feat!) The other teachers who sub in her classroom have also been so caring and know my child's name, they say hello to her in passing when we are walking through the playground and are always friendly. Beth, the director, and Sam, the assistant director, have always been responsive to any questions or concerns we may have. Beth ALWAYS makes time for me when I call or stop in and never makes me feel rushed. She always reassures me that it is ok to call and check on my Little One as many times as I need to to feel ok with leaving her all day. I did call a lot at first but now I feel confident in the care she is getting and only call when I feel like my Little may be having a hard day in general, and I know if there are any concerns they will reach out to me or my wife. They have been very inclusive of our family dynamics and I know that they truly care. The only drawback we have had is that her classroom has closed several times for COVID exposure which makes things really difficult. I know this is just the nature of living through a pandemic.
