Kind Child is a program that allows us to focus on the social and emotional development of every child in our care and make an impact in our community. The goal of Kind Child is to enrich friendships and elevate the emotional well-being of every student so that everyone feels welcome and at home at our preschool. We focus on specific social and emotional skills each month and the development of valuable character traits like Friendship, Respect, a Positive Self-Image, and Thankfulness every two months.
We love spreading kindness outside our school by regularly hosting community events and volunteering locally. Cadence Academy Preschool also recently became a partner of the St. Jude Trike-A-Thon, which allows us to raise funds to help children fighting cancer and other diseases. Be sure to ask us about Kind Child when you come in for a visit!
