Cadence Academy Preschool (formerly Tender Loving Kare), Newark is an early education school which provides childcare 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 our school. 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.

This is my first year at Cadence and it has been a great solution for my children.

After having a poor experience at another daycare, Cadence was an absolutely dream for my son and I. Corinne and the entire staff is AMAZING and truly care about each and every child. His teachers, Ms. Jewel, Alex, Dominique love on him just as if he was their own. Despite some of his developmental challenges, he continues to thrive at Cadence and that’s all due to the care and support the Academy provides. I LOVE CADENCE ACADEMY!!!😊

My daughter has been attending Cadence academy for 8 months now. She loves going to daycare, and is always excited to see all the staff. Ms Rachel in the infant room is always bubbly, excited, and incredibly attentive to all the babies needs. She truly loves her job, and taking care of all "her babies". It's been a blessing to drop off a young child and truly not worry. Ms Itzy in the toddler room is always creating fun and inventive activities for the toddlers to take part in to encourage their development. The managerial staff is also very attentive and warm. Ms Corey always remembers their kids names, as well as the parents and follows up when the little ones are out sick. Overall a great daycare. Would highly recommend Cadence academy to anyone!

If I could give this place 10 Stars I definitely would, these teachers are amazing. Everybody is super friendly from the moment that you walk into the door, passing everybody in the hallway, and even walking into the classroom. My daughter has been going here over a year and a half now, and we are so sad that she is leaving. (Moving on to kindergarten) ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
