Positive Behavior Support (PBS) Program

At Cadence Academy Preschool, Algonquin, we use an innovative approach to building positive relationships and helping children in our classrooms, referred to as Positive Behavior Support (PBS). This method was developed through the Center for Social and Emotional Foundations for Early Learning (CSEFEL. It is based on research that reveals that by teaching children the skills they need socially and emotionally, we are better equipped to prevent challenging behaviors, as well as promote school readiness.

The basis of PBS involves strategies for developing positive relationships with the children, followed by creating supportive environments. These strategies can be seen in each class via daily schedules featuring pictures; photos with step-by-step instructions for certain student tasks; classroom rules; and, helper charts and other visual reminders, and cues.

In addition, we offer strategy and solution cards, as well as emotion boards, to support students who may face challenges dealing with the social and emotional situation they are facing.

My son had attended in-home daycare since he was a baby, so naturally I was nervous transitioning him to a new place for his last year before kindergarten, but Cadence Academy far exceeded my expectations! I have been so happy with the care he has received there and especially the education! He is socially, academically, and emotionally prepared for kindergarten and that is thanks to Cadence and their amazing teachers and staff. I wish that he had attended there more will be so hard to say goodbye!!

Cadence is absolutely the best school around for my kiddo! Fair price, excellent staff, professional demeanor and my kid absolutely LOVES it. She cant wait to go to “school” everyday and constantly talks about the staff and her friends at school. Each teacher has nestled into our hearts as they literally make me feel so good about being a working mama! They focus on the kids happiness and skills to keep them engaged and full of joy! Cannot thank them enough for being there for us. We HIGHLY recommend!

Cadence has made leaving our 3 month old all the way up to our toddler an absolute breeze! They have been such a blessing to our whole family! Anything we didnt understand or know due to being first-time parents, they helped us through it seamlessly and never judged us for asking a million questions. We love the team and cant thank them enough for keeping our little one safe and creating an incredible environment for her to flourish and grow!!!!!

I would definitely recommend Cadence Academy to anyone that needs a day care. They are the best. I feel like my 3.5 year old son has learned to talk more and has learned a lot. He loves going. He meet a friend who he talks about all the time at home. They have done an awesome job during through this pandemic we have been going through. My son has been going since he was 15 months. I wouldn’t have him go anywhere else.
