We believe in making the most of early childhood at Cadence Academy Preschool, Montgomery and we continually take steps to ensure our preschool provides extraordinary care and an exceptional education for every child. Our daycare center previously operated under the name Rogy’s Learning Center, but we changed our name to Cadence Academy Preschool in September 2018 after joining the Cadence Education Family of Schools. Our convenient location allows us to serve the towns of Oswego, West Aurora, Yorkville and Montgomery.

Ascend Curriculum LogoOne of the biggest advantages of being aligned with Cadence is that we get access to preschool programming you won’t find outside of our family of schools. Our teachers take a skill-based approach to early education through our Ascend Curriculum, which has a flexible framework that effectively balances social, emotional, physical, and academic development. We work towards important developmental milestones within nine subjects every month and progressively build valuable skill sets that will serve your child for years to come!

Safety & Security

At Cadence Academy Preschool, our number one priority is to keeping your children safe. We ask all of our families to help us remain proactive when it comes to security and keep door codes private. Please have all other visitors ring the facility’s doorbell as you’re entering and exiting. We are always available during school hours to check identification.

We also have an internal video security system so our directors and front office staff can monitor activity in each classroom. In addition, we provide our families with KidReports, which is an app that provides you with real-time updates and pictures so you can follow your child’s day.

I was recently promoted to Director and I’m happy to be working alongside Brooke, the staff, and the families here at Cadence Academy Preschool. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education from Concordia University Chicago and have been in the field for the last 15 years. Throughout my career, I have been an Assistant Teacher, a Preschool Teacher, an Assistant Director, and now a Director.

My goal is to give you peace of mind every day and I thank you for entrusting us with the care of your child.

My son has been going to this Daycare since he was about a year and a half and he is now 4 years old. Can’t say nothing but great things about this school and their staff. Even with how bad the pandemic impacted everything, they stayed committed to keeping up with guidelines and keeping us all informed about what was/is going on. Thank you so much, Katie, Brooke and Sami!

Best staff at any of the daycares I've sent my child to. My child loves going and always talks about how much fun she has. If you are looking for a place that gives your child individual attention, teaches them well and makes them feel safe along with you feeling safe about them being there...then this is the place to send them!

My son has been attending Cadence the past year though the entire Pandemic. I can’t say enough good things about the Center. They have been Amazing! The staff is professional and the Center is SOOO clean. They have the best safety measures and I can confidently say it’s been a huge relief to know my child is staying as safe as he can during a pandemic so I can focus on work. Also, my son has some complex needs and they have been more than accommodating! Hands down the best experience ever! They also don’t have a high turnover like other centers, the same staff has been there since he started and they all seem happy and are pleasant with us. I love the way Energy they all have. The preschool and Kindergarten program at Cadence is amazing!! My son even asks to go to school, something we never saw before. He comes home and sings songs and he has learned so much. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I absolutely enjoy my daughter being a part of Cadence Academy family. Very clean especially during the pandemic. Staff is very nice and actually care my mind is always at ease knowing my daughter is in good hands. Brook, Sammy, and Katie are real deal rock stars they go above and beyond ALWAYS for the kids and parents at Cadence. My daughter "little miss diva" is not a people's person or morning person but she defiantly runs to the door each morning to see her favorite people. A 10 star rating is what I give Cadence especially during this pandemic. I am grateful for them and wouldn't choose any other place regardless of the distance. Thank you guys for everything you do you all are the real hero's during this time!!!! I highly recommend. :)
