About Cadence Academy Preschool in Pine Meadow

Since 1989, Cadence Academy Preschool (formerly Giant Steps) has promised to provide a stimulating, loving, and inclusive environment that benefits the child, their caregivers & our community!

Our Program

We designed our program to provide an inclusive, stimulating, loving and home-like environment. In turn which benefits the child, their caregivers, and our community.

Our program works to enhance your child’s self-esteem, encourage their self learning skills, develop social skills, and stimulate learning. All while building on their speech and language development and challenging their motor skills.

Child Centered

We challenge sensory, motor, perceptual and language skills through all kinds of materials and different hands on activities. Both of which are child-centered and teacher directed.

Learning by Playing

Work is planned emphasizing the process rather than the product. Based on the theory that children learn through playing and from new experiences, their classroom activities are varied! They include a balance of structure, free choice, indoor and outdoor play, active and quiet times.

Teachers who help your children learn, grow, & explore

Our family of teachers at Cadence Academy Preschool strive to make your child a priority, and help our school feel more like a home. With diverse experience ranging from babysitting to post graduate early childhood programs, our teachers bring a wide array of different learning models to ensure each child will benefit in their own way.

Continuing education & safety

Just like the children at Cadence Academy Preschool, our teachers are continually learning. Attendance at seminars, workshops and annual conferences is mandatory. We partake in staff development programs as part of our on-going training.

All of our teachers are certified in American Heart Association CPR and First Aid for children. Additionally, some staff members have been trained in medication administration and EpiPen injection.

We felt incredibly comfortable the moment we walked in the door...

Enrolling our child in Cadence Academy has been one of the most incredible decisions for our family. The nurturing environment and dedicated staff have truly made a positive impact on our child's development. We put our son in Cadence when he was 18 months old. Being a typical Momma Bear I was scared of having someone else watch my baby, but the teachers and staff in every room he progressed through truly treated him like their own. The way they care for each child is beyond words and I'm so lucky we found them. They provide a perfect balance of learning and play, fostering creativity and social skills in a safe and engaging setting. We couldn't be happier with the care and progress we've seen in our boy as he heads off to Kindergarten! We highly recommend Cadence Academy to any parent looking for childcare and an enriching early education experience!

Cadence has become my home away from home for our daughter and the teachers are truly an extension of our family. When you walk in, everyone greats you with big smiles, a warm hug or a friendly good morning. As it is almost time to transition to kindergarten, I am reflecting on all the wonderful years spent at Cadence Academy. Truly, I couldn’t say enough about the magic the teachers create in their classroom. From dropping her off on the first day in the infant room, to watching her watch the graduation bridge, there was never a doubt in my mind that my child was safe and loved beyond belief. If you are looking for somewhere for your baby to spend their early years, I couldn’t recommend this place more. Thank you to the school directors, Katelyn and Madison for setting the bar high for childcare. We are grateful for every moment.

My son is happy when he sees his teachers. The staff are really engaging and encouraging. I like how they have an app so you can see that he took a nap, ate, and had a bottle at certain times etc.

I don't know if people tell you this, but your center is just so extraordinary compared to the norm. There was never a doubt in our minds that Daphne was not only safe and being taken care of, but that she was also engaged, encouraged, and enjoyed by every staff member there. We can't thank you all enough for the dedication you have for our kids. I hope that all of your other families are aware that there is something special about Giant Steps that you just don't see anywhere else, and that can't be taken for granted!
