Our Programs

The Ascend Curriculum

Ascend Curriculum LogoWe believe that every student is a unique individual who deserves to be treated with respect. The flexibility built into our Ascend Curriculum allows us to create individualized learning experiences for each child and our teachers focus on developing new skills in subjects such as Literacy, Baby Signs, Spanish, Art, Science & Sensory, and Technology every month. Activities can be modified to match the interests and current skill level of every child and we teach through play so our students treasure these first learning experiences and develop a lifelong love of learning.

Our Preschool Campus

Cadence Academy Broomfield features a spacious cafeteria and multi-purpose room where our children have access to a bank of computers and Smart Boards for learning activities and games. Our classrooms have interior windows, which allow natural light to permeate the school and provides quick visual access throughout the entire school.

We have three separate playgrounds designed for active play, exploration, and individualized activities for every age group. A shaded picnic area is also available for the children to enjoy our beautiful weather. Your child will enjoy nutritious meals and snacks that our on-site chef creates each day. These meals are included in tuition.

My family and I have lived in Broomfield since my husband, Walter, and I were married in 2006. Walter and I have two children.

We have had a very positive experience at Cadence with our 2 sons. The teachers are committed, enthusiastic and desire partnership with the parents and the admins are very communicative and organized. We like the small family feel of this school.

In 2017 we wrote with 5 stars: We are loving Cadence Academy for our infant. It was hard to drop off our baby after returning to work, but it was easier with Cadence. They have a wonderful phone app that allows BOTH of us to easily see how our child is doing throughout the day and his providers even send us photos and videos throughout the day. This helps us get through the day without seeing our baby. We also love drop off and pick up as it could not be easier. We never wait in a line of cars (or people) to pick up/drop off our child. We pull up out front parking readily, we are welcomed at the front desk, and we are leaving minutes later. Now in 2021 we write with 5 stars: Our child just finished his last day of preschool at Cadence Academy more than 5 years after he started. He is off to kindergarten later this week and while we are excited to see him grow up we will miss Cadence and everyone we have come to know and love there so much! Everyone there has consistently gone above and beyond to make us feel like a part of family and home, because it is genuine and comes to them all so naturally. Many of the teachers and staff that were there the day we arrived in June 2016 are still there today the day we leave in August 2021. It is evident that everyone that works there loves children and their jobs, and we are so appreciative of every one of them. Plus, our son has also learned so much—far more than we ever expected or anticipated (he was also fully potty trained well before he turned 3!). He’s made lifetime friends in the kids he grew up with following each other all the years. All of this is a testament to the staff and loving and supportive family atmosphere at Cadence. We have had an absolutely positive heartwarming experience there. Don’t give it another thought. If you want a family for your child and a place you can feel good about dropping him/her off at, let Cadence welcome you to their family.

Cadence has been the best experience we have ever had with any child care facility. Our youngest has gone there since he was 3 months old and they are literally his 2nd family. My son has gotten to experience and learn so much that he loves school and can't wait to go back so he can learn something new. If you are looking for the best quality in childcare then this is the place for you! All teachers and Directors are so kind and always willing to help accommodate any way they can to reach each child's learning style. I can't thank the teachers and directors enough for all the wonderful years we have had with this school!
