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.

I want to take a minute to make everyone understand how amazing this school is!!! From the first time we came for a visit and tour we were treated like family!! Everyone there treats my son AJ like there own!! He started his new adventure the last week of August. I was more nervous then he was for sure. That only lasted about 1 min after we walked in. Such a great group of people that made me feel welcome!! I knew that day that we made the best choice for our son! Miss Sandy and Miss Mary are Fantastic!! I am so impressed on how AJ made strides so quick with his vocabulary! Miss Mary showed me the other day how he is slowly learning sign language. The most important part of it all is that he loves it and is making lots of now friends!! If anyone is looking for a school look no more because Cadence Academy Preschool is the best!!!

My child came home with scratches and bruises which the school rarely had an explanation for unless I pushed the issue. Communication with teachers via the app is basically non existent. Final straw was when I realized they had been using another child's wipes on my son instead of the ones I sent in, which would explain the eczema outbreaks my son has had. When I told them I had contacted the department of education they told me I would no longer be allowed to review any footage of the time my son was in school.

We have been attending TLK since our son was 13 weeks old and cannot say enough great things about it!  He has learned so much in each room he has been in and we have built great relationships with the teachers, as well as, the front desk team.  He really enjoys going to school!  Everyone has done an excellent job with COVID this past year ensuring to take all the necessary precautions to ensure our children are happy and safe.  Thank you!
