You will not regret investing in your child’s education and most important their safety at Cadence Academy located in Clive. I do firmly believe that this school offers high quality education, and this school shines so bright because its NAEYC accredited. This school facilitates a unique curriculum called Ascend, which has been carefully and expertly prepared by early education professionals to enhance your child’s learning experience. Children are respected, nurtured, and challenged. Every student has ongoing opportunities to learn important skills, knowledge, and dispositions. Educators guide children to make meaningful decisions throughout the day. Differences are celebrated at this school, children's home language and culture are respected, appreciated and incorporated into the curriculum and the classroom. Educators offer children learning opportunities by carefully preparing individual, small-group, and large-group activities. The Ascend curriculum provides young children the opportunity to learn basic school readiness skills. Inside of the classrooms, there are positive relationships between teachers and children. All classrooms are well-equipped, with sufficient materials and toys.
Communication occurs throughout the day, with mutual listening, talking/responding, and encouragement to use reasoning and problem-solving. Educators will provide opportunities for art, music/movement, science, math, block play, sand, water, and dramatic play are provided daily.
There are materials and activities to promote understanding and acceptance of diversity.
(Parents are encouraged to be involved in all aspects of the program!)
Another important benefit this school provides is kindness. Your child will feel loved, nurtured and learn how to develop (kind) and meaningful relationships through the Kindness Curriculum that is yet another unique piece integrated into your child’s experience. I highly recommend visiting this school, engaging with the educators and inquiring on any classroom openings! 515-987-2137.
