About Cadence Academy Preschool in Folsom

We pride our school in having a family oriented atmosphere, wonderful staff, and a homelike environment. In each and every one of our classrooms, teachers bring concepts like letters, numbers, and language to life through creative activities, ensuring our kids are excited and engaged while learning. We even have a unique outdoor classroom for special activities. Toddlers and preschoolers enjoy the sunny California weather on their own large, separate playgrounds. Kindergarteners excitedly chatter and recite new words they’ve learned—sometimes even in Spanish!

Since safety is a priority, our front door requires a security code to gain access, and our front desk has someone there at all times to ensure the most secure possible environment. Each classroom is also equipped with a security camera.
