Preschool & Childcare Programs

Kind Child Program

Kind Child programKind Child is an important part of our school’s culture and a key part of our monthly curriculum. Cadence preschools take a skill-based approach to early childhood education, which helps us balance our attention between social-emotional, academic, creative, and physical development. Our Kind Child programming gives us the opportunity to develop social and emotional skills and valuable character traits. Be sure to ask about Kind Child when you come in for a visit. It’s a wonderful program that helps our preschool students build confidence and positive friendships.

NAC Accreditation

NAC Accreditation logoThe National Accreditation Commission (NAC) for Early Care and Education Programs provides daycare centers and preschools the opportunity to demonstrate and document the quality of their educational programs. Cadence Academy Preschool – Big Hollow first earned its NAC Accreditation in December 2008 and we’re committed to continuously improving our programs and services, which is a requirement to maintain NAC Accreditation.

The National Accreditation Commission requires childcare providers to meet or exceed dozens of standards within six component areas: Curriculum, Classroom Health and Safety, Interactions between Teachers and Children, Administration, Health and Safety, and Family Engagement.

Parent Communication

Maintaining an open line of communication with families is an often overlooked part of the preschool experience, but we have found that young children thrive when there is a strong partnership between parents and school. We offer a variety of communication pieces to keep you up-to-date with your child’s day and their academic progress, but our most popular form of communication is KidReports. KidReports is an app that allows your child’s teachers to send you real-time updates and photos. We also host fun-filled events for the whole family throughout the year so that you can build a strong relationships with our staff.

My grandson just started here a couple weeks ago after a bad experience at another daycare. When I called for my daughter to schedule a tour the director, Ms Molly was so happy and helpful. I came with my daughter to the tour and Ms Molly answered all of our questions and then some. My daughter was very worried about breastmilk being wasted or not warmed up correctly. But, Ms Molly explained the breastmilk procedure and the bottle labeling. She made sure we knew that all the teachers took a breastfeeding training class and that all the teachers know how to warm the breast milk and that my daughter can come on her breaks to feed the baby if she wants/needs to. Ms Molly truly went above and beyond and made both my daughter and I feel comfortable and secure about sending my grandson there. While we were going over paper work there was a teacher wiping down the doors and the ink pens. It was great to see them cleaning and sanitizing during this pandemic. Since starting we get pictures everyday, every teacher is always so nice, not just the ones in his room. Any teacher we see in the hallway they always smile and say hello. Ms Molly and her staff are amazing I would highly recommend this center to anyone who is looking for childcare. You can tell that everyone there cares about the children and all the families. Thank you so much Cadence Big Hollow for everything you do!
