We love Cadence Academy and all of the teachers and staff. Both of our kids attend. I travel for work and I don’t worry while I’m away because I know the teachers are amazing and the kids are having a great time. We are super impressed with how much our toddler knows. He’s always learning something new. We highly recommend Cadence Academy.

We moved our son here (now 18 months) from another center a little over a year ago and the difference is amazing. What puts them at the very top is their staff/teachers. It seems like everyone (including all of the teachers from the other rooms) knew my husband’s and I’s name almost immediately. They are always doing activities that are above and beyond what a “daycare” could typically handle. We have already had two parent/teacher conferences where my son’s teachers wrote two whole pages of praise and next steps. They have an app (if you wish to use) that keeps you up to date on what they ate, how they slept, photos, and notes about their day or upcoming activities. I really feel their director wakes up every morning and asks okay what can I do to make this place even better and it shows. It’s pricey and usually a long waiting list (which is why our son didn’t get to start there from the beginning) but it is all worth it to leave your child somewhere the love.

Our son started Cadence (Then Apple Tree) at age 2 and quickly fell in love. He even reaches for his teachers (he doesn’t like most people). I love the updates throughout his time there and the fun pictures of his activities. They are always sending home art and projects and there is constantly a fun activity on the calendar. They really do care about the children there.

Our Grandson, attends Cadence Academy. He started attending when he was a baby & now attending Pre School! We really like what this preschool stands for. The extra steps Admin. & Teachers take, I feel, really do make a difference. Love how they introduce sports & education that the preschoolers are learning. A big shout out to all of you hard working admin. & loving teachers. You are all very much appreciated, Thank You!
