The preschool programs at Cadence Academy Preschool, Iowa City are designed to help young children reach important milestones at every stage of development. We take a skill-based approach to early education that balances intellectual, physical, and emotional development and our curriculum is designed to progressively build valuable skill sets each month! Our students graduate from our Pre-Kindergarten program confident and ready for kindergarten!

Ascend Curriculum

Ascend Curriculum LogoOur Ascend Curriculum takes a unique skill-based approach to early education and our teachers introduce new skills within subjects like Mathematics, Literacy, Technology, and Physical Fitness every month.

Skills are taught at a challenging pace and our goal is to recognize where each child is on a particular skill and then take them to the next step without comparing their learning pace to others. We encourage our teachers to modify activities to match the interests and current skill level of each student so that everyone is supported, engaged, and having fun!

NAEYC Accreditation

NAEYC Accreditation LogoCadence Academy Preschool, Iowa City is accredited through The National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). Our staff is dedicated to going above and beyond accreditation standards to find the practices that best educate and care for young children. We have found that accreditation fosters a culture of reflection and continuous improvement.

School-to-Home Connection

We believe that children thrive when there is a strong partnership between preschool and home. We have an open-door policy with our families and we encourage you to visit at any time. We also offer a variety of communication pieces so that you’re constantly up-to-date with your child’s day and their developmental progress.

Our preschool also hosts a variety of family-friendly events throughout the year. Some of our favorites include our annual Winter Wonderland in January, Family Picnic in August, and the University of Iowa Homecoming Parade!

Accreditations

NAEYC Accreditation

Every child deserves access to high-quality early learning experiences. NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children) has set 10 standards for early childhood programs that can help families make the right choice when they are looking for a child care center, preschool, or kindergarten. The standards and criteria are also the foundation of the NAEYC Accreditation system for early childhood programs.

Our daughter has been attending Cadence for only a few months, but we’ve been nothing but pleased with our experience so far. The teachers and director seem to genuinely care about our child, which makes me feel confident about the quality of care she receives. I also like the fact that I can “check in” on the app throughout the day for updates and pictures!

Cadence Academy is a wonderful Preschool for all toddlers and infants. Their COVID-19 process is effective and also efficient. As parents, even though we have not physically entered or seen the facility/classrooms (because our child started during the pandemic), their daily notices with pictures assures us our little one is safe, learning and having fun. Added bonus is Jean's warmth when receiving and dropping the kids off. Thank you for all you do.
