What Makes Our Day Care Unique

Our qualified, passionate instructors love their jobs and care deeply about all the children and families we meet. As experts in the field of early education, our teachers participate in ongoing education. We believe it is vital to be constantly learning and improving, and we stay informed and engaged with our children at the highest level possible.

Baby Signs is a sign language program for hearing infants and toddlers that serves to foster language development and communication while they are learning to speak. Studies show that infants and toddlers who use sign language are happier and less frustrated, learn to talk sooner, and they get a long-lasting boost in their intellectual development. All of our infant and toddler teachers have achieved Baby Signs certification.

For our school-aged children, we offer transportation service to several local schools, including Seven Oaks, Meadows, Evergreen Forest, Olympic View, and Lydia Hawk. We offer an enriching Before and After School Program, as well as full day programs on school holidays, and vacations. We include nutritious meals and healthy snacks in our tuition.

This school has been a lifetime for me as a full time working mom. My son has been attending Cadence since before he turned one and we followed the director from one school to another because I trust her so much. The teachers are amazing, the chefs prep amazing meals for the kids and each person there is watching over our children and really care about what they’re doing. Can’t say enough good things!!

Wonderful school! We are sad to leave because we are moving. My son started in the 2’s class and is currently doing remote learning kindergarten in the school-age classroom. My son looks forward to going each day and enjoys his time there. The teachers are also amazing and go the extra mile. We will miss this school!

My two year old has been attending Cadence since September 2019, and it has been the best and most exciting experience! We have watched her grow with her teachers and all the staff and as a little person. When she first started attending, she didn’t talk well, she didn’t like socializing, she was shy and very attached to my hip or my husband! She hated drop off she would be so sad to let go. Now, she loves drop off she runs down the hall to her class and walks in with such a presence like “I’m here Miss Courtney give me hugs” she is in love with the environment, and what she’s going to learn next! Her teachers Jesica and Courtney and all the other teachers that come in and help, have helped her learn so many new things and as a parent it makes me so happy to see her grow and see the bond she has with them. She loves her teachers, and her classroom. Pick up is almost craziness because she always wants to keep playing or dancing and singing. And Erika and Amber in the front are absolutely AMAZING! I feel like I’ve had so many crazy questions and complications with army things, and they’ve been so patient and understanding. I really will be sad when it’s time for the army to move us away. But I’m so so glad I found this amazing school! 10 out of 10 .. 5 stars all around! Like I said incredible people who love teaching and making a difference in my crazy kids life and help shape her into the silly, loving, fun, and smart little two year old she is now because of Cadence. (Also ! Biggest plus and one of the biggest reasons we went with cadence is the amount of protection and care they have, the logins and codes and the photo updates and letting parents know everything they’re doing throughout the day.. really made me feel more at ease with leaving her for the first time ever) attached are just some of the many many photos they captured of Paloma and they make me so happy to see her grow into a little person in this school and learn so much and become so artistic and comfortable doing things on her own.
