Cadence Academy in Tacoma has been dedicated to providing the highest quality childcare to local families since 1986. Our preschool provides early childhood education programs for four-week-old infants up to pre-k students. Our early daycare center has secure entrances, spacious classrooms, and a private playground situated far from the street to ensure children feel safe and comfortable while learning. We also offer a large play area for our older students and a separate play area for our younger children.

Because our preschool is centrally located, we work with three area elementary schools: Christensen and James Sales in the Franklin Pierce School District, and South Gate in the Clover Park School District. These school districts provide transportation for Head Start, ECEAP, and kindergarten children. Our childcare program has a van that provides free transportation to and from James Sales, giving parents the opportunity to choose which school they would like to enroll their child.

The foundation of the Frida Kahlo Child Development Center proposal is based on scientific evidence on early childhood development that allows us to understand the importance of Early Childhood in human development and in particular, the relevance of the brain formation process and the preparation processes for the learning. Under this perspective, we assume the commitment to promote an educational project with principles of equity, relevance, effectiveness, and quality aimed at children in conditions of vulnerability, who, comprehensively cared for by a multidisciplinary team, have the possibility of accessing opportunities to learn and develop competencies, skills, attitudes, and values to face life. Frida Kahlo Child Development Center, believes in social justice, and cultural empowerment of our community. We seek to strengthen the roots and mother tongue of our students, through cognitive, artistic, and cultural activities that help our little ones to build socio-emotional skills that will accompany them throughout their entire lives.

Linden said some of those spots will be for infant care. They also plan to ensure hours are flexible because most child care centers have strict time frames. There are plans to make costs flexible as well.

The original plan was to partner with existing child care centers so Farm 12 employees have someplace to bring their children, Linden said. But when the pandemic hit, employees expressed their struggles with finding facilities that were still open.

That is when the conversation around Farm 12 having its early learning center began, Linden said. They held a town hall in February 2022, during which people shared their needs and want in a child care center.

About 80 people attended the town hall, Linden said. Parents, families, teachers, pediatricians and other people that have ties to child care were present. They made it clear that they wanted their kids to have child care that lets them interact with the outdoors.

Rachel Hamilton, another Farm 12 employee, drops off her 4- and 5-year-old children at a child care center but the journey to where she is now was difficult. She recalls crying many nights when the centers she used to frequent shut down during the pandemic.

Child Care in Your Home (CCYH) is a DoD fee assistance pilot program that helps military families cover the cost of full-time child care (30-60 hours per week) provided in their homes. Designed to support families with nontraditional work schedules, care can be provided every day of the week and during nontraditional hours such as evenings and weekends, or on rotating schedules.

The monthly fee assistance amount paid for each child is based on your Total Family Income (TFI) category and will not cover the entire cost of child care. CCAoA will make the fee assistance payment directly to your selected CCYH provider.
