The state of North Carolina recognizes that choosing quality child care is one of the most important decisions a parent makes and started issuing star rated licenses to eligible daycare centers and child care facilities in September 2000. Facilities are evaluated on program standards and staff education and Cadence Academy Ballantyne is proud to have a Five Star Center License, which is the state’s highest rating.
Our Ascend Curriculum enables teachers to individualize instruction to accommodate the interests and learning styles of each child and ensures that your child is engaged, supported, and challenged at every stage of their development. Each month, our teachers focus on developing age-appropriate skills in areas such as Literacy, Language, Creative Expression, and Physical Fitness.
The Ascend Curriculum recognizes that young children need much more than academic development in their first educational experiences and takes a balanced approach that allows us to focus on the social, emotional, creative, and physical development of your child too.
