Our Philosophy

Here at Cadence Academy in Gig Harbor, we believe very strongly that every child should be given ample opportunity to express his or her unique personality and that this strong sense of self can never start too soon. To this end, we foster healthy, authentic, and inspired early childhood development through intentional programming, nurturing caregiving, and strong parent-teacher relationships.

What Makes Us Unique

Cadence Academy Gig Harbor has been in operation for more than 20 years! Our success translates to your child’s success, because as early childhood development experts, we utilize effective daycare programs for each age group, 6 weeks through 5 years old. Every day, we follow a schedule that’s full of developmentally appropriate activities that are also super fun, including creative art, construction, active play, games, dramatic play, science, cooking, crafts, and early learning time.

All of our teachers actively engage children in ways that develop awareness, self-control, and decision making.

Cadence Academy’s specially curated curriculum Creative Kaleidoscope of Learning includes stimulating and fun programs such as Math Their Way, Zoo-Phonics, Baby Signs, Fun with Fitness, and Spanish, just to name a few. Our preschool program, which prepares kids for their future educational journeys, is designed to meet the physical, social, emotional, and intellectual needs of each individual child. Creativity is rampant at Cadence Academy Gig Harbor, and we love to ignite young imaginations!

The most important part of a child’s development is their independence, and we actively guide this process by encouraging children to solve their own problems and have positive interactions with other children. Importantly, we teach children to express their feelings with words rather than physical action. These sorts of social skills and self-regulation habits are vital during this stage of growth.

Our school has two wonderful playgrounds, privately located against a greenbelt. One playground is for our toddlers and the other is for our three- and four-year-olds. We have playground equipment for climbing and sliding, as well as tire swings, bikes, and riding toys. There is plenty of space for our children to run, play, and get their wiggles out!
