An exceptional education is an important part of our promise to you. We take a skill-based approach to early education and help our students reach important developmental milestones in all of our preschool programs. Our Ascend Curriculum starts in our Infant and Toddler classrooms and is designed to help children progressively build valuable skills sets as they move through Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten. We have an amazing program each spring called Kindergarten Club, where children get confident and ready for kindergarten!
Kind Child is a wonderful program that allows us to focus on the social and emotional needs of each child in our care. Kind Child is a core subject in our monthly curriculum and we introduce emotional skills every month and focus on a new character trait like Respect, Responsibility, and Friendship every two months. Our goal is to develop the emotional well-being of our students and encourage friendships.
Cadence Academy Preschool has an open-door policy and we welcome our families to visit their children at any time. We have large observation windows and an open floor plan, so it’s easy to observe each classroom, which is also a great security feature. We offer a variety of communication pieces to keep our families informed about their child’s day and their developmental progress. Our parents also get access to an app called KidReports, which keeps them updated on their child’s progress throughout the day and includes pictures.
