Teacher

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!

Accreditations

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.

Our son has only been there for a short period of time but we can see the impact of him being there. Great School

Just enroll your kid here instead of looking at multiple daycares like I did as a first time mom. There's a reason they have a long waiting list...great, dedicated teachers and directors, real curriculum in the classrooms. My son has thrived in Cadence since he was 4 months old and is almost 2.5 now. My mom thinks is great too and she's a retired preschool teacher that knows the ropes.

Our two children attended Cadence for a little over a year. From remote learning, to hybrid schooling, and finally back to regular school with before and after care. We absolutely loved every moment at Cadence and couldn’t have been happier with how our children were cared for and loved by all of the staff. Throughout the majority of the pandemic Cadence ran smoothly with zero interruptions or infections. Sadly, that changed recently but I know they did their best to keep the facility running. They had a difficult job with the constantly changing guidance from corporate and the local/state health departments based on infections. No one was immune from this. They did their best to keep constant and open communication throughout all the changes and for that I’ll be forever thankful because at the end of the day they prioritized the health and safety of the staff and more importantly our children. I cannot recommend Cadence Academy-DuPont enough!
