Giant Steps Daycare is Now 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.

I would give them 100 stars if I could! BEST daycare around. I couldn't imagine sending my kiddo anywhere else. Every morning, we are greeted with huge smiles and hugs! They take such phenomenal care of her. The entire staff is kind, caring, loving, thoughtful, and compassionate! They love what they do, and it truly shows! My little one LOVES going to school every day, and it is so reassuring to know I'm dropping her off to such AMAZING people! We love it and recommend it to everyone we know! ❤️🥰

Giant Steps has been such an integral part of helping our children become who they are. The staff are some of the best, and treat ours like their own. They are responsible, professional and caring beyond belief. Love that my children get to grow and learn here! Wouldn’t have it any other way 🤍

Our two year old son has been at Giant Steps for a year and a half. We feel that not only is he well cared for, but he is truly loved. We appreciate all the wonderful employees. Some of his favorites are Miss Julia and Miss Tanya : ) Thank you to everyone.

Giant Steps is the best daycare around! I can’t imagine sending my kids anywhere else. From day one, I’ve felt great about dropping my boys off. They’re always met with a smile and a hug. My oldest was well prepared for Kindergarten thanks to the amazing teachers in the upstairs barn. Can’t say enough good things!
