About Cadence Academy Preschool in Ridgefield

Welcome to Cadence Academy Preschool, Ridgefield! Known previously as The Children’s Corner, we changed our name to Cadence Academy Preschool in March 2018 as part of our center’s ongoing commitment to give your child the best early educational experiences we can. Being a part of the Cadence Education Family of Schools gives us access to preschool programming such as Kindergarten Club, Kind Child, and the Ascend Curriculum. These programs help us create a preschool environment where children thrive!

We are located on a beautiful piece of property across from Seth Low Pierrepont State Park in Ridgefield, CT. We have designed our spacious, light-filled childcare center to stimulate learning while also providing a loving, nurturing environment. If you’re looking for daycare services for your infant or toddler or you want our preschool teachers to start working with your child on their cognitive, social, or emotional development, you’ve come to the right place!

Preschool & Childcare Programs

Ascend Curriculum

Ascend Curriculum LogoThanks to the flexibility of our Ascend Curriculum, we take an individualized approach to early childhood education and encourage every child to progress towards age-appropriate goals at their natural pace. New skills are introduced sequentially in 9 different learning domains each month and activities are modified to fit the interests and current skill level of each child. This skill-based approach to early education ensures that every child feels engaged, supported, and challenged and makes learning fun!

Kind Child Program

Kind Child LogoAnother significant part of our curriculum is our Kind Child program. Kind Child is a year-long program for children ages two and older that helps our teachers nurture and strengthen every child’s social and emotional skills. We have found that when we focus on the emotional well-being of each child in our care, we strengthen our school as well. We are confident that Kind Child will continue to strengthen the culture of our entire preschool center by elevating every child’s feelings of happiness, improving their well-being, and enriching their friendships.

Cadence has been such a blessing for us!! They took us in in October and made this frantic Momma a sane person again! I was shocked and impressed at how quickly all the staff knew Penelope by name. My daughter has shown such a difference since switching schools and has made such great friends. I can't express enough how amazing it feels as a mother not to have to worry every day that she won't get the care, attention and education she deserves. We are very excited for summer and Kindergarten but MOM is very nervous to leave such a wonderful place that has felt like home. xoxoxo

Sending out a special thank you to the staff at Cadence Academy. Miss Roseann shines out as a gem stone among educators. Her transitional kindergarten provides the right balance to nurture, inspire and prepare my five year old grandson for kindergarten. Miss Roseann’s years of experience and love of teaching are evident by the love and enthusiasm she receives back from her students and their families. Learning is an adventure in her class.

Cadence Academy is an amazing place! They are so kind and loving, not only with the precious young ones they care for everyday, but also with their families. I have had the pleasure of seeing this first hand as I drop off a little one I care for. Being a retired educator, I have had many years experience with childcare, and Cadence is the best of the best!!
