Cadence Academy has partnered with the Norwalk Community School District to offer an on-site Before and After School Care program at both Oviatt, Orchard Hills and Lakewood Elementary Schools.

Our program is organized to promote a club-like atmosphere and offers kids a variety of carefully planned activities including arts and crafts, music and culture, reading, writing, drama, athletics, and cooking. Children enjoy the freedom to choose the projects that interest them, which provides them a sense of independence. Whether your child needs help with homework, time to relax and enjoy a snack, or to socialize and play board games with friends, he or she will find it at Cadence Academy Before & After School!

Programs Offered:

  • Before & After School Care (ages 5 to 12)
  • Summer Camp Programs (ages 5 to 12)

Our Community Philosophy

We believe that the hours before and after school are the perfect time for children to explore their interests and build lasting friendships, so we offer our elementary students a world of choices to help foster both. Community is important to us at Cadence Academy and we’re proud to provide a safe, developmentally stimulating place where children thrive.

Our Before and After Care program ensures that out-of-school hours are spent constructively. We also regularly invite parents and family members into our center to share in the fun and learning!

Before & After Locations

Our program takes place on-site at Oviatt, Orchard Hills and Lakewood Elementary Schools. Oviatt Elementary School is located at 713 School Avenue in Norwalk, Iowa, 50211. Orchard Hills Elementary School is located at 1130 West North Avenue. Lakewood Elementary School is at 9210 Happy Hollow Drive in Norwalk, Iowa, 50211.

Teresa Hoskins

School Director

Thank you for your interest in our Before and After School Program serving Kindergarten through 5th grade. I have been the Director of our program since it opened in June of 2004. As a Norwalk parent and resident myself, I am very pleased we are able to partner with the Norwalk Community School District and offer our program on-site at both Oviatt and Lakewood Elementary Schools.

Our program is organized in a club-like atmosphere. Your child can choose from a variety of carefully planned activities including arts and crafts, music and culture, reading, writing, drama, athletic and cooking. The club-like atmosphere is designed to offer your child the freedom to choose the projects that interest him/her while giving them a sense of independence. Our teachers will help your child with homework after school, in addition he/she may choose to relax, have a snack and play board games with friends. Each child is able to explore his/her interests and to interact with other children who share those interests. Our students, parents and teaching staff enjoy a community within a community atmosphere. It is such a pleasure to have former students return to our program to teach the next generation. I invite you to schedule a visit so that you and your child can see our program in action and how it may enhance your student’s early primary education years. We would be pleased to have your family become a part of our community.

We are so thankful for Cadence Academy! Our son loves attending and has the best time, the staff are always friendly, helpful and attentive and they are often engaged and hands on with the kids! I love all the activities provided and the variety of guests that come to share their expertise and talents with the kids. Ms Teresa and her team have been a huge blessing for us since we started this program in April!
