Infants & Toddlers

In the nursery, highly skilled teachers provide infants with developmental stimulation through cuddling, rocking, story time, songs, art exploration, and lots of tummy time activities. The toddlers explore their environment and creativity with daily art projects and sensory activities, including story time and music.

My family has been with Cadence Sleater-Kinney for almost 2 years now. I had my 5-year-old attend the school last year and she enjoyed it. Thanks to Ms. Molly and Ms. Morgan. Also, my set of twins began to attend the school since they were 1 year old. They are 2 now and soon to be 3 years old. Their first teacher was Ms. Cynthia and Ms. Wren. They are both caring and truly give their best effort to keeping a balance in the classroom. At this time, they are in the mini preschool, with Ms.Siuny and Ms. Amanda. They are also doing their best to abide by their curriculum and set a standard for the kiddos. They take time to do activities with them, such as reading, writing, art, singing, and many more. The school allows them to update us throughout the day by sending us pictures and letting us know what they eat during each meal. All staff are friendly and communicative. Overall, we are happy that we chose this location for our kids.

They are very attentive and caring and offer fun activities throughout the day to keep keeps engaged and learning. My daughter comes home everyday with new things she has learned. I’m so thankful to have found Cadence Academy.

My girl has been at school for 3 months. The directors and her teachers Ms. Siuny and Ms. Amanda really care about our kids. Ms. Siuny and Ms. Amanda show their professional and love to kids. They also keep posting my kid's pictures and information on app, so you feel you have a connection with your kid daily. I really apprecite the excellent work from Sleater Kinney!

My two children go here and are well cared for. I know my older child loves her teachers because she keeps inviting Ms. Siuny to come home with her or has to go out of the way to give Ms. Amanda a hug before she leaves. My younger child is not much for talking but I know he is well cared for with Ms. Cynthia and Ms. Hannah.
