We have been so impressed with the quality of care our children have received from Cadence Academy – we have been attending Cadence Academy for the past five years and our kids loved the teachers, the friends they made, and all of the fun activities they have done. We love it for the quality of education they receive and the quality of the teachers and staff they hire. I would recommend Cadence Academy to anyone looking for a nurturing, supportive and educational environment for their children.

Both my children have loved going to Cadence Academy! The staff is extremely friendly and knowledgeable. I’ve had other daycare experiences and they are nowhere near the quality of Cadence. I never worry while my children are being cared for each day.

My daughter just turned two and has been attending Cadence Academy for the past 16 months. My younger daughter recently started in the lower nursery. The teachers at Cadence are second to none. They work hard to get to know each individual child and build great relationships with all of the family members. The thing I appreciate most about Cadence is that it feels like a family friendly atmosphere. Everyone knows me, my daughters, and my husband by name and is always friendly and kind. They use the KidReports app, so I get real time updates on meals, diaper changes, and naps. I also receive pictures and descriptions of activities the girls participate in. I would recommend Cadence Academy to anyone who is looking for high quality childcare. They are worth every penny we pay them- and more! Recently, my mom passed away and I was out of state for about a month. The staff was so flexible, kind, and caring as our family worked through the tumultuous time. We could not ask for a better place for our children.

Cadence has helped my daughter make huge strides in her education and social skills, management is very accommodating and always there to help when needed. Communication is great in this center. Teachers are warm and welcoming, teachers in every class are engaged with the children, educational evidence is all around the rooms and Krysta and Kristi (management) very kind and communication is wonderful.
