Joni’s Child Care & Preschool is now Cadence Academy Preschool!

Our directors, teachers, and staff share an unwavering commitment to provide the highest standards of child care and learning in safe, secure facilities. Our staff consists of skilled, educated professionals who are entirely dedicated to the interests of our children and families. Center management is required to undergo a rigorous training process, and like all staff, required to maintain professional certifications and educational credits. Safe, clean, secure facilities complete the picture, providing the ideal environment for children to thrive.

Our children enjoy a large multi-media room with individual computers and large-screen, interactive monitor for group activities and instruction. Our Farmington center also has a bright, fun indoor play area for preschoolers. Extracurricular activities include swimming lessons, dance, martial arts, soccer and piano.

Our Programs

NAEYC Accreditation

The National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) has set 10 standards for early childhood programs to help families looking for a child care center or preschool. These standards define what NAEYC believes all programs should provide. Maintaining accreditation requires our preschool to meet or exceed criteria in 10 standards including Curriculum, Teaching, Health, Staff Competencies, Families, Physical Environment, and Community Relationships.

Collaborating with Our Families

At Cadence Academy Preschool we know that raising children is unique in every family. We work hard to understand the needs, preferences, and goals of each family. Whether it is the timing of potty training or the daily separation process, we work with families to determine the best approach to each situation. We believe that you need to make decisions based upon the needs of your family and we seek to engage parents at every step.

Our Preschool’s Location

Cadence Academy Preschool, Farmington is located a mile west of I-84 in northwest Farmington, Connecticut. We’re just off Route 4/Farmington Ave at 3 Eastview Dr, Farmington, CT 06032. We’re next door to Farmington Farms Tennis & Athletic Club and across the street from Dunning Lake.

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 3 year old daughter is going here since last fall. She loves going there and adores her teachers. She had no problem adjusting to the new environment when she started here. The best thing for me was that they are super flexible in schedulings, which was extremely helpful for me when my work routine was not very regular. During the covid19 lockdown months, she missed going there. After reopening, they have gone above and beyond to keep all the kids and teachers safe.

I love Joni’s my daughter is 8 months old she’s been going since she was 10weeks old. I had a lot of references so I was always set on sending her there. I work near by and I was so lucky that I could send her part time. I love that I can go in and hang out after work and talk to her teachers. They’re all so great. Ms Gail is a gem she really loves seeing the babies learning and thriving. I’m so glad I’ve never had to feel nervous about daycare, best decision ever.

My three year old son has attended Joni's, Farmington, for a little over two years now. We are thrilled that he attends a daycare that not only allows him to play, but encourages exploration, kindness, and learning through an enriching curriculum, every day. The staff has always been accommodating and flexible in regard to our son's schedule. My son also has a food allergy and I have complete confidence that he is safe when at Joni's and that the staff takes his allergy seriously and will do everything necessary to make sure he isn't exposed to certain foods. In addition, all staff members are trained to take the proper steps should a child have an allergic reaction. They are patient, kind, friendly, and are nurturing towards my son, which makes it that much easier dropping him off! He truly enjoys attending Joni's and gets super excited when he knows he's going to daycare. We plan on sending our next little one to Joni's as well!
