Meet Our Director
Kaitlyn Wightman, Director
I have been in the field of Early Childhood Education since October 2004. During my first three years in the field, I taught in a Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten classroom. I then took on the role of Program Specialist, which allowed me to begin my management training. In 2007, I became an Assistant Director and held that position for 12 years, until I moved on to my role here as the Director at Cadence Academy. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from the University of Massachusetts Amherst and my Director II Certification through the Department of Early Education and Care.
My favorite thing about working in this field is being able to see children grow and develop so quickly. Whether it’s an infant learning to walk or a preschooler learning to write their name, each day brings something new and exciting, which truly makes me enjoy my days at the center. I love working with such amazing and dedicated teachers that have a passion for teaching. Our team here in Hanover is fantastic!
I am a Mom to my beautiful daughter, Evelyn, who was born in March 2019. In my spare time, I love to travel with my family. At least once a year, we make a trip to Disney World! I also love spending time down our family home in Cape Cod.
I look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to our Cadence family in Hanover!
