Preschool & Childcare Programs Offered:
- Infant Childcare (6 weeks – 14 months). Your baby’s journey begins in our infant childcare program. Because young children develop at their own pace, our staff monitors each infant continuously for normal developmental patterns, and uses creative activities to help them in meeting various developmental goals.
- Toddler Childcare (15 months – 23 months). Toddlers need the freedom to explore and recreate the world around them. Through play and assessment, our teachers prepare your child to advance to our preschool classroom.
- Two-Year-Olds (2 – 3 years). In this daycare program, our staff provides a daily report with your two-year-old’s eating, napping, and toileting routine, as well as daily academic accomplishments.
- Preschool (3 – 5 years). This preschool program encourages your child to get involved in hands-on activities that enhance his or her preschool learning experiences, preparing them for elementary school.
- School-Age Program (5 – 12 years). This program offers a combination of both organized and independent educational and recreational activities as well as distance learning support.
- Summer Camp (6 – 12 years). As part of our summer camp program, children stay cool with fun, learning, and amazing friendships made along the way.
Our Positive Behavior Support (PBS) program focuses on your child’s social and emotional development, closely modeled after Vanderbilt University’s The Center on the Social and Emotional Foundations for Early Learning (CSEFEL) philosophies.
We work hard to build strong character and friendships so that students can be a part of a classroom where they work together and respect one another.
At Cadence Academy Preschool, we understand that young children first start to comprehend their surroundings from an egocentric perspective. Building strong attachments with caregivers and sharing feelings can help children better understand their emotions, as well as others. We recognize that once children start to realize that their peers have feelings and needs, too, they start to learn how to socialize with each other.
