Formerly known locally as The Phoenix Schools, our preschool offers nurturing child care and early education programs for ages 6 weeks – 6 years that are proven to prepare young minds for future academic success! Our skill-based approach to early childhood education balances social-emotional, physical, and intellectual development so that every child feels supported and challenged while engaging in their first educational experiences.

Kind Child

Kind Child Program LogoKind Child is an important part of our monthly curriculum and the perfect way for us to encourage friendships in our classrooms. We focus on social-emotional skills every month and the development of valuable character traits every two months.

We love our Kind Child program because it allows us to elevate the emotional well-being of our students and staff!

We love being part of the Cadence Academy I Street community! Our son is in the Panthers class, and Ms. Shannon and Ms. Abby have really been outstanding teachers for him. He is developing solid numeracy and literacy skills, and he is growing socially and emotionally. We're confident that he will be well-prepared for kindergarten in the fall based on his experiences. The school's leadership is excellent, and they have handled the pandemic admirably. Also important: the meals and snacks here are delicious (yay, Ms. Keana)! We are so glad we made the switch from Montessori to Cadence!

It was very difficult for us to transition to daycare at 15 months. Our little one hadn't been exposed to strangers, other kids, due to the pandemic. Cadence has been so patient and knowledgeable with our toddler. Within just 2 months, our toddler happily walks in to greet her teacher, friends, and absolutely loves going to Cadence. They teach baby sign, do arts and crafts, music, and her.vocabulary is taking off! I love getting notifications throughout the day of her nap, activities, and pictures too! We are so grateful to have found a place we trust and feel comfortable with, Cadence director, tea hers, and staff are great!

We started our son at this daycare in August when he was 8 months old. Obviously, it's stressful starting your child in daycare, and with COVID added to the mix, it was a tough decision for us.  The teachers have been fantastic.  I feel like they are well organized, communicate well, and Miss Bethel and Miss Kristina have been so great about answering all my worried questions!  As a first time mom, I really couldn't have asked for a better daycare!  So grateful for this group of teachers!

We enrolled my daughter almost 2 months ago and she has been doing so great. As first time parents to a 4.5 month old we were very nervous about putting my baby in daycare but Cadence put our minds at ease with their communication and all around personalities. We cannot wait to see what more she will learn and love how she kicks her little legs with excitement when we approach the school. Covid protocols are also awesome.
