Welcome to Cadence Academy, DTC in Centennial, Colorado! We are proud to share that we have been voted in the top 3 for Best Preschools of 2020 by the readers of Colorado Parent!

Cadence Academy Preschool, Centennial has 10 custom-designed classrooms where children have ample space for learning, yet still enjoy cozy, homelike amenities. We have found that young children transition more successfully into a daycare environment when they aren’t overwhelmed with vibrant colors and clutter. We opt to use natural tones and soft elements like pillows, soft seating areas, coverings, and soft lighting in our preschool’s classrooms.

Ascend Curriculum LogoPreviously operating under the name Gateway Academy, we changed our name to Cadence Academy Centennial in June 2018 as part of our ongoing commitment to provide families in Centennial high quality childcare. Cadence Academy Preschool has locations all over the nation and we’re known for our Ascend Curriculum, which is a skill-based curriculum that provides children with the physical, cognitive, and social tools they need to excel in kindergarten.

Preschool Programs

Kind Child

Kind Child Program LogoWe want all of our children to develop healthy social and emotional habits and Kind Child is a program that allows us to elevate the emotional well-being of our students. We focus on the development of social and emotional skill every month and build valuable character traits like Empathy, Responsibility, and a Positive Self-Image as part of our Ascend Curriculum.

We want Cadence Academy Preschool, Centennial to be a Kind School where everyone feels welcome and valued and our Kind Child program is an important part of making that ideal a reality.

Events at our Preschool

Our preschool is a hands-on learning environment where children experience fun while they learn. We venture out into our community throughout the year, but we also have in-house field trips to extend the learning process in areas such as music, science, and culture. One of our staff’s favorite days is our Transportation Fair, where we invite a variety of community helpers to bring their trucks and work vehicles to our preschool.

My 4 year old daughter had been attending this school since August and the change we have seen in her confidence and educationally is amazing! She comes home daily talking about what she learned that day at school, has made some amazing friends and is sad when we don't get to come. The teachers are amazing and truly caring about the kids in their class and challenge the kids to get the best out of them to prepare them for Kindergarten and beyond. We can't wait to start Kindergarten Club!

My daughter is 10 months old and as a first time mom I was so scared to leave her in a daycare and with COVID going on even more worried but they have shown how clean and how serious they are handling everything. The staff if very sweet and I love my daughters teacher Mrs.Regina she is amazing beyond words.

Cadence has been great with my daughter! The staff is amazing and always so friendly and helpful. During these crazy times we're living they have been willing to work with me and my ever changing work schedule. They have been amazing and I don't know what I would have done without them. My daughter loves her teachers and the fact that they have an in-house chef is a huge plus!
