- Our Team
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.

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.

I’ve been in the early childhood field and working here at Joni’s since 2005. I have an Associates Degree in Early Childhood Education and a Bachelors degree in Child Studies. I am also Head Teacher certified by the State of Connecticut and an Early Childhood Educational Consultant.
When I began my career, I quickly learned that helping children develop exceptional early education skills is what I wanted to do. My staff and I take great pride in delivering quality care.
I have three sons, Caleb, Calvin and Wesley, and reside with my husband in Unionville.
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.
