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.

Our kid has special needs and my words does not do justice to describe how grateful I am to Amiee (Director) and Pam (my kids teacher) for supporting all our needs. I have never seen my kid so happy in other daycares. This daycare deserves 5++ stars.

I am very assured that my childrens health safety is their first priority. The teachers and managment are always so friendly and helpful.

I can't even begin to express how much we love Cadence Academy! I wish we had found them sooner! We had pulled our son out of his previous center at the start of Covid. We were leery of sending him back, but knew he needed the structure before entering Kindergarten this year. So after over a year of being home with me, we checked out Cadence Academy since it was closer to our new home. After a quick tour and excellent communication from Assistant Director, Michelle, we knew we didn't even need to keep looking. We had found exactly what we were looking for. It was clean, organized, and kids looked happy. Since he started, every single person we've interacted with has been so sweet. Our son LOVES his teacher, Miss Andrea. A weekly curriculum is sent out and it's broken down by category. Each day she updates his chart with what was served for meals and what he actually ate. She includes photos of activities and of what they are learning about. All of the information can be viewed in the app and we can check throughout the day. He has only been there a few months, however, in that short time he has learned so much. He is counting past 100, is already learning to add, loves circle time and interacting with the other kids.. sometimes we have a hard time getting him to leave! We couldn't be happier with this center and if we ever have another child, we already know where they will be going for childcare. We are so sad to be leaving, but it's ONLY because Kindergarten starts next week. :) I am a hard one to impress (truly lol) and I have nothing but great things to say about them. You will not be disappointed!

Finding Cadence was truly one of the best things to ever happen to our family! The director Amie is outstanding, the staff is all so kind and welcoming, and my son has done so well and learned so much from his fabulous teachers. We couldn’t be happier with Cadence! I never worry about him in their care and that peace of mind is priceless. I’d give them 10 stars if I could!
