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.

I have worked at this school since 2003, teaching in our 3 year old classroom, The Critter Country. We pride our room in bringing the world alive for the children, through animals, Flat Stanley and creative ideas. I live in Placerville with my loving family, where we enjoy the outdoors and doing things in the wilderness like hiking and camping. When I was young, I lived on a cattle ranch. I love the country and enjoy the adventures that it brings me and my family and I am excited to bring this to your children as well.

We highly recommend Cadence Academy Preschool at Broadstone for your kiddos!! Our kids have been going here for 5 years now. All of the teachers are kind, caring and passionate about what they do!! Ms. Chloe and Ms. Carrington are wonderful teachers and make learning fun for the kids. One of our kids has food allergies and eczema and they have been super accommodating for her. Thank you to all the staff including Ms. Gloria (Spanish teacher) and the front desk Ms. Taylor and Ms. Sandra!!

Our son has been coming here since he was 4 months old. It’s comforting knowing he’s in such knowledgeable and caring hands. They provide so much for him that we couldn’t do at home, including socializing, lessons in Spanish (which he’s enthralled with), and access to safe, supervised activities. It was scary thinking someone else would be included in raising our son, but I’m so happy with our choice to have him at Broadstone.

I have been sending my 3 year old daughter here since she was 6 months old and I am beyond impressed with the learning/teaching environment. Her vocabulary is outstanding and she has made so much progress with following directions and social skills. All of her teachers are amazing, but I do want to especially recommend Ms. April and Ms. Marisela in the Tree Frogs room for being adaptive and patient with my kid's unique needs. Their investment in my child and excellent communication with my husband and I have helped tremendously. I've also been sending my 1 year old son here since October and he is so happy. He is clearly loved and well-cared for by all the teachers even though he went through some pretty gross spit-up phases! Honestly, all of the infant teachers are incredibly skilled and committed. The director, Ms. Sandra is a diamond in the rough. She's the reason why we chose this place and I continue to be impressed with her knowledge and creativity in child development, discipline, and play. We are overall very lucky and I definitely recommend.

I sent my boy Lucas who was 2 years old to cadence in august last year. Initially we were so worried about whether he can get himself used to the daycare, due to the covid, he has been kept at home for pretty long time. But all the teachers and facility staff were so nice that helped him transit to the school life pretty smoothly. Ms Marisela and other 2 teachers in tree frog class are amazing, they trained lucas how to go potty so quickly. He loves go to school and enjoys his time with teachers and classmates. In school, they even teaches him Spanish, now I can hear he speaks Spanish or sing Spanish songs sometimes at home. Overall, I strongly recommend cadence, it's a nice school for the kids.
