Cadence Academy Preschool (formerly Tender Loving Kare), Odessa is an early Education School which provides programs for children ages infant through twelve 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.

We have our first born attending here and we couldn’t be any happier! They were so welcoming and friendly and I am at ease when we drop off our daughter each day. The administration and teachers are supportive and helpful and it is exciting to see my daughter grow and develop in her class and with her friends! They are handling COVID-19 requirements very well and I’m very comfortable sending my daughter there each day. The communication is wonderful! We love TLK!

I have two daughters that attend the TLK Odessa location and I couldn’t be happier! You can tell how much the teachers care and everyone is very sweet and accommodating. We are so lucky to have found such a great location!

We have been impressed with TLK, the administrative team and teachers go above and beyond to not only care for our boys, but to help them learn as well.
