Both my children attend Growing Tots Childcare, and have been for a little over a year now. My youngest was strictly breastfed the first year and they did very well at managing, storing, and handling the milk I'd supply for the week. My oldest also attends and she's in first grade. They assist with picking up and dropping off from the bus stop, as well as help with homework. It's a very close knit family vibe you get when you're there. I will say there are a lot of vacation days on the calendar, which is fine because they are an at-home daycare, not a facility. They give you a calendar with dates so you know ahead of time and can plan accordingly so you're not completely blindsided. Also there were instances where Mio has made adjustments to those dates because I was simply not going to be able to find other care, she cancelled the days and stayed open. As long as you communicate with her she will do her best to accommodate you. I don't plan on taking my children out of here any time soon, my children love the staff!

Cadence Academy Preschool - Tacoma

1908 S. 96th St., Tacoma, WA

Cadence Academy Preschool - Tacoma is much more than just daycare. We offer infant, toddler, preschool and child care programs with a curriculum that prepares children to thrive in their next stage of development, including kindergarten readiness.

Our small group environments in each classroom enable teachers to tailor the learning to each child's skill level and provide them individualized attention so they're prepared for their next milestone. We do this through a Primary Care Group approach where each teacher works with small groups of children at a time, so no child is ever without a teacher to guide them.

Our approach to learning is play-based because we know children learn better while they're having fun, engaged and interested. We give them plenty of time throughout each day to play, explore, and enjoy physical activities.

Our school management team, teachers and other staff have early childhood care and development experience, and they really enjoy teaching and nurturing the children in our care!

We also focus on developing and nurturing important character traits and social skills through our age-appropriate "Kind Child" approach.

Families are a very important part of our school and we encourage a strong parent-teacher-child connection. We do this through many classroom activities and events designed specifically for parents and children to participate together.

Open and ongoing communication with our families is important, and the most effective way we do this with parents is face-to-face whenever they drop-off their children in the morning or pick them up in the afternoon. We have an open-door policy, so you're welcomed to come in or call to chat about whatever is on your mind at any time.

We're very picky about our menu choices, so children receive a nutritious breakfast, lunch and snacks every day that are included in tuition.

We provide parents peace of mind by giving children an exceptional education every fun-filled day in a place as nurturing as home!

Please contact us to schedule a visit, meet our caring and nurturing team, and see for yourself how our school is a very special place for your child to learn and grow.
