My name is Lani Peters and I have been the infant room teacher at Cadence Academy since September 2013. I was born and raised in Washington. I married my husband Paul in 1988 and have two children. My daughter is a nurse in Pennsylvania and my son is an engineering student at WSU. I love being the infant room teacher and enjoy working with your children every day!


NAEYC Accreditation

Every child deserves access to high-quality early learning experiences. NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children) has set 10 standards for early childhood programs that can help families make the right choice when they are looking for a child care center, preschool, or kindergarten. The standards and criteria are also the foundation of the NAEYC Accreditation system for early childhood programs. To earn NAEYC Accreditation, schools must go through an extensive self-study and quality-improvement process, followed by an on-site visit by NAEYC Assessors to verify and ensure that the program meets each of the ten program standards, and hundreds of corresponding individual criteria. NAEYC-accredited programs are always prepared for unannounced quality-assurance visits during their accreditation term, which lasts for five years. In the 30 years since NAEYC Accreditation was established, it has become a widely recognized sign of high-quality early childhood education. More than 7,000 programs are currently accredited by NAEYC—less than 10 percent of all child care centers, preschools, and kindergartens nationally achieve this recognition.

As my time comes to an end working for cadence for 4 years I've enjoyed my time here. I’ve grown and learned so much working for this company! The people I have worked with have become my friends and family ! I'll miss all the families I've gotten to know and all the kids.

Cadence this the best! We are so grateful to have a place we know our daughter is safe, cared for while also having a lot of fun. She adores her teachers Mrs. Angi, Ms. Allison and Mrs. Domonique. She is always talking about everything she is learning from being a "bucket filler" and learning about Chinese culture to getting excited about being the "weather watcher" in the morning. She also still talks about learning Spanish in her previous classroom with Mrs. Valeria and I am glad she has continued to learn more. We also appreciate Ms. Heather, Ms. Sydni, and all the admin staff who know all the kids by name, the family cars before we even get out and have worked tirelessly to keep everyone safe and healthy during the pandemic. Thanks so much Cadence Team!

We love Cadence! I have been relocated a few times, but we have been in Dupont for two years, and our daughter has thrived at Cadence Academy compared to the other schools she has went to. When we toured daycares in the area, we didn't know which one we were going to choose, but we could tell that Cadence provided the best care. So glad we chose them. Additionally, the Covid restrictions they have had in place are stringent. I am saying this, because my daughter, who generally gets 5-6 colds a year, has not been sick this entire cold season. Thanks for keeping our kiddos safe Cadence!

We absolutely adore this preschool! My son is 5 years old and he loves going here. The staff is amazing, they get 2 meals and a PM snack plenty of playground time as well as classroom time. Parents gets bi-weekly curriculum updates by email and we just feel like they are a part of our family :) His teacher Ms. Sierra is amazing! We were a little nervous at first because it was his first time ever that a family member wasn’t going to be caring for him but he adapted so well, made tons of friends and looks forward to going to school everyday. It was really important for us to find a place that we could trust and Cadence Academy has been that for us and much more!
