- Our Team
Rainbow Academy is now Cadence Academy Preschool! We have been providing quality childcare to Carol Stream, Bartlett, Hanover Park, Bloomingdale, Glendale Heights, and other Western suburbs since 1983. Our preschool center has programs for children from 6 weeks to 5 years of age, and our programs focus on your child’s individual needs and on his/her social, emotional, and intellectual development.
In addition to the high-quality childcare and developmentally appropriate curriculum that your child receives in his/her classroom, Cadence also provides exciting and unique features, including a Computer Lab, Bakery, Multi-Purpose Room and Theatre.
We require that all staff become certified in First Aid and CPR, and our teachers meet, and most often exceed, the DCFS teacher qualification requirements.
Rainbow Academy 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.

The After Zone serves children ages 5 to 12. Our program supplements the child’s regular school hours by offering morning care, at which time breakfast is offered, and afternoon care. The 4000 square foot facility is truly a child’s dream after school “hang out” and we even provide transportation between your child’s school and the After Zone.
