I cannot say enough good things about Cadence Academy - Mauldin. Both of my kids love going everyday! The teachers there are so amazing and care so much about the kids - I know my children are safe, loved, cared for and both are learning so much. I know that not only the teachers, but that the entire staff truly cares about the children and they are also very informative, respectful, and friendly with the parents. Thank you Cadence Academy - Mauldin for always taking such good care of my babies!

We absolutely love Cadence Academy - Maudlin! I have never had to worry once having my children here...and during COVID times that is a huge weight off of my mind. The staff and team have always been respectful and friendly and are like a second family to us. They have gone above and beyond to make sure they are keeping all kids and all staff safe during this difficult time. Our kids have always felt safe and loved there and are always excited to see their friends and teachers and have new adventures. I could not ask for better childcare and would not look anywhere else!! We love Cadence!!

Cadence Academy has been amazing for our 2 year old! We originally started out at Kids R Kids and I watched on camera as my daughter was ignored for hours and hours while she cried on her first and second day. I pulled her out at the end of the second day. Then we started Cadence Academy and my daughter has never cried even once. She gets so excited for "school". She even asks to go on the weekends! I know she is safe and happy when she is there. We love Ms. Brittany and the directors! They keep the kids busy with so many activities and my daughter has learned so much in just a few months. They also use an app to update you on everything your child does throughout the day; potty, meals, activites, and pictures! I love getting pictures everyday while I'm at work. I've had 3 kids in daycare in the past 10 years and this location has definitely been the best. There's a reason why Cadence Academy has nothing but 5 star reviews.

We moved our son from Kids R Kids for multiple reasons and were extremely nervous about trying out a new daycare but I think we’ve finally found the right place . My son has only been here for a few days and he hasn’t cried not once when we drop him off and he actually gets in the car excited to tell us about his day. The first day he got in the car he counted to ten in Spanish for us and his teachers are great . I’ve called a few times to check in on him and they have talked me through everything and calmed my nerves a lot . His dad and I agree that we both love this facility. Thanks again to all the staff
