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!

My daughter was in need of a daycare last February for her 3 month old and after working in the daycare field for 12 years I had high expectations when walking into a center. I wanted my granddaughter to receive the best care that there was. I had many questions and honestly I was blown away with Katie, Sami and Brooke and all of the teachers in the infant room. They answered every question with heart. The rooms were all clean, the children that were in their care were clean. The security to get into the building was amazing. My granddaughter was only there for a month up until the center had closed due to covid. They had kept in contact with all of the families, asked what their plans were. My granddaughter was 7 months when she finally got to return and the center had great precautions put into place and still do. My granddaughter loves her Ms.Mary and my heart is so happy everyday when I see the communication on the kid reports with pics and notes. She comes home happy and loves going to "school". If you are looking for a place that genuinely feels like a home for your child(ren) Cadence Academy in Montgomery is definitely one that I would recommend..
