- Our Team
Welcome to Cadence Academy Preschool, Ken Caryl! Our goal is to nurture every child who walks in the doors of our daycare center and make the most of these precious early years. We offer children a homelike preschool environment and we take a skill-based approach to early childhood education that allows us to balance intellectual, physical, and emotional development. 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!
Children have an endless capacity to learn. We believe that the most impactful way to support the development of academic skill is to give children an appropriate level of control over their own learning process. Our teachers provide our students a variety of opportunities to initiate their learning and encourage students to develop curiosity, persistence, and a love of learning!
- Infant Daycare (ages 6 weeks to 1 year)
- Toddler Daycare (ages 1 to 2)
- Early Learners (ages 2 to 3)
- Preschool (ages 3 to 4)
- Pre-Kindergarten (ages 4 to 5)

Our Ascend Curriculum allows us to create unique learning experiences for each child in our care. Our teachers introduce new skills in 9 different subjects each month and modify activities to fit the interests and learning styles of each student. This approach helps children progressively build valuable skill sets that will serve them in elementary school and beyond!
Programs for Elementary Students
Our elementary children enjoy activities geared towards their interests, help with homework, and quiet time for reading during our before and after school program. We provide transportation to and from the following elementary schools:
- Ute Meadows
During the summer months, our school-age children participate in exciting summer programs, which include lots of field trips and educational challenges.

Our preschool is one block north of Ken Caryl Ave at 12633 W Indore Pl, Littleton, CO 80127.
I am the lead teacher in Beginners. I joined the Cadence family in 2002. Through my teaching experiences, I have learned many techniques for working with this age group. I love implementing sign language with the children and their parents; it has allowed me to fully incorporate language into my program. I have been selected several times to present workshops on toddler curriculum, and sign language at Cadence training sessions. I completed my group lead qualifications through Community College of Denver. In 2004 I was honored to be named the teacher of the year and mentor teacher. I enjoy many outdoor activities with my husband, Ryan, our son Bryson, our daughter Kyla, and Labrador, Jax. I look forward to getting to know your child and working with you to make your little one’s time in my classroom full of fun and wonderful experiences.
I am a lead teacher in the infant nursery. I joined Cadence Academy in 2006. Most of my experience has been with infants and toddlers. I also have taken college courses on child growth and development. I am married to my wonderful husband of 15+ years and have twin boys, Alex and Blake, and a stepson, Colton. We love to travel and we love Disney World! We try to go once or twice a year and I hope to someday live by the beach.
I am a lead teacher in the infant nursery. I have been with the Cadence family since 2004. In that time I have been with the infants since 2006. Babies are where my heart is. I am lead teacher qualified and also hold my Infant Nursery Supervisor certificate. I am married and have three amazing children. We enjoy spending time together camping, and playing with our dog, Angus.
