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.

Our family has been with Cadence for over 5 years and it has been a wonderful experience. All of the teachers and staff are amazing. My children are well cared for and love going to school every day. They have learned so much and my daughter is fully prepared for kindergarten. I have heard about other centers closing frequently for snow or spring break or bank holidays but Cadence rarely closes which has made my life so much easier as a working mom. I would recommend Cadence without a doubt.

If you are on the hunt for an amazing daycare, look no further! Cadence is everything you want, need, and more. My son has been going for almost two years now and he is met each day with experienced, patient, and positive teachers. As an educator myself, my son at his own “school” is the least of my worries. Instructors use the app KidReports which allows parents/guardians to see diaper changes, meals, and even daily pictures. Seeing the pictures of my child dancing, painting, and reading is often the highlight of my day. Cadence came recommended to me from another teacher in my building and choosing them is one of the best decisions I have ever made. They partner with teachers and teacher schedules (holidays off and summer vacations). The student to teacher ratio is low. I will admit to being a very anxious, type-A, new mom, and Cadence eased all of my worries. Cadence is exceptional.

Being part of the Cadence family is so wonderful! Our daughter has thrived at Cadance since the time she was very little. She has teachers who love her so much and take such good care of her emotionally and academically. She is very busy during her day from outside time, to art activities, books, nutritious meals, and open-ended time with friends. Her teachers work hard to communicate about our daughter's daily activities. We have also been very impressed at how the administration team has made safety a priority during COVID. They have put in protocols that are easy to follow and so efficient. Our family is so happy at Cadence :)
