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 2021 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.

I have worked with young children over the past 6 years. My love for children began in the Denver Public Schools. Since I did not have any experience in early childhood education at that time, I started as an Aide and it only took a few months of working with children to realize this was the route I wanted to take, so I enrolled in the Community College of Aurora.

I was born in Chihuahua, Mexico. When I was eight years old my parents decided to come to Colorado and I have lived here most of my life! I love everything about Colorado! The outdoors, camping, and spending time with my family is what I enjoy most. I am a wife and a mother to two beautiful girls. I am proud to say that my youngest daughter attends Cadence Academy DTC! I look forward to working with each family in our school!

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!
