Cadence Academy Preschool, your childcare center in Middletown, DE is an early Education School which provides programs for children ages infant through fourteen years. Our philosophy includes providing a nurturing environment that fosters each child’s self-identity, utilizing developmentally appropriate practices to enhance each child’s learning opportunities.

Family and community are an important component at TLK. As a small preschool, families are an integral part of the program. Parents have opportunities to see their children’s teachers daily and to participate in the program as their schedules allow.

This close relationship enhances each child’s personal growth and achievement and promotes a secure and safe environment. Communication between teacher and families adds to each child’s learning environment and offers support for continued success.


The infant/toddler program provides a loving, nurturing environment in which children can develop at their own pace. We offer opportunities for each child to explore their environment and learn through play. Singing, finger play, story time, and art are all part of daily activities for this age group.


The preschool program is a full day program that provides a curriculum that is balanced in work and play which allows for an introduction of a variety of subjects that includes group experiences, creative activities, listening and sharing stories, rest, language skills, writing skills, problem solving, independence, indoor and outdoor play, and health and safety education.


The before and after programs offer services for several of the local schools in our area. Transportation is provided to the schools by the school district and our own transportation service. This program is a structured environment where students can work on homework, socialize, and have continued learning experiences while in a safe caring environment. This program also provides services for when children are off school due to in service days or other school holidays.


This program is a continuation of our school-age program. During the summer break we provide a program for children finishing Kindergarten through Eighth Grade. The children are in separate groups, based on their grade level. All groups participate in outside field trips and in-house activities which enhance learning experiences while having fun.

Cadence Academy Preschool is so much more than daycare. We are proud to provide an exceptional preschool education every fun-filled day in a place as nurturing as home.

Our family loves TLK! My son has been going to TLK for 4 years and will transition to before and after care once he heads to kindergarten in the fall. I could go on and on about the many things we love about TLK, but specifically the care and education is of the highest caliber. They treat my son as if he was their own and give him the best care possible. In addition, the education he has received will give him the best start in kindergarten. To anyone looking for an awesome, caring, and/or educational child care facility I would highly recommend TLK!

My daughter Chloe has attended TLK since February of 2020 and there has not been a day that she has not wanted to go. I wanted to thank her teachers as well and the administrative staff for constantly demonstrating kindness during this past year. Chloe was having a hard time adjusting to the virtual school day and Chloe's teacher Ms. Stacy was extremely helpful and kept Chloe focused and on task. Ms. Stacy would also provide Chloe with good mental breaks full of laughter to break up her difficult day. We cannot thank Ms. Stacy enough for all of her efforts with Chloe and her virtual school days. Thanks again to Ms. Stacy and the amazing Administrative staff for handling the challenges of this past year so beautifully.

Both my daughters have been going to TLK for the last 3 years. My youngest started in the infant room. Every teacher treats the children like their own, loves them, and works hard to teach each child. My children love every teacher they had and have. My children feel safe and loved everyday and knowing that makes me happy. I will always recommend TLK to anyone looking for childcare.
