I absolutely adore this facility! My son is 2 and never was in daycare or had a sitter before. They make you feel so welcome and I really feel as though my son is in great hands! I have also noticed him progress so much since starting! The curriculum and staff are absolutely wonderful and I would recommend this daycare facility to anyone wanting top quality care for their children, along with a fun environment for them to learn in!

My 3 year old had a very difficult time adjusting to full-time daycare. The staff took the time to brainstorm ways we might be able to make him feel more comfortable and it seemed like they really wanted my child to excel in his new setting. It took a couple months of adjustment but now my son loves school and talks about his friends and teachers at home all the time. I really like the updates we get online throughout the day and that the teachers try to do fun and different activities with the kids all the time. I’m very thankful for the caring staff the growth I have seen in my child since starting at Cadence.

The staff at the Lacey location are all very personable and are compassionate to your children. The center is clean and tidy everyday. Can get reports on your child as they are happening, and a daily summary. Also offer extra activities like soccer lessons. My family has been apart of the center for almost 4 years and couldn’t be happier.

We are new to Olympia/Lacey area and were looking for a good child care for our four-year-old son. We didn’t like the first place we took him to. As soon as we realized that it was not a good fit we started to search for a new place and luckily for us found Cadence Academy of Lacey.

We love this place. The staff here is very friendly and professional. You always come and greeted with big smiles. Teachers in our son’s preschool class are exceptional. They give you good feedback about your child’s progress and how his day went. Our son loves coming here, he learns a lot and have good rapport with his teachers.

My husband and I would highly recommend Cadence academy. We could not be happier with them.

This is THE best preschool in the entire area! I searched for months for a place that wasn’t a corporate feel like most schools that are over-charging and make it feel like a business. I looked at The Children’s Courtyard, other Cadence Academy schools, Kinderccare… NONE compared to the feeling of home like this school. Mugsy and her staff are nothing less than AMAZING, and love my children like their own, putting their emotional, physical, and scholastic needs as a priority. My kids have developed SO much since being here and they are growing more each day. I will never look for a better place because it simply does not exist. These people are so dedicated to their little angels and I have NO complaints! Try them. You won’t regret it!!
