Most importantly, we aim to provide a personalized preschool education experience for every child we serve.

Our Commitment to Quality Care

The National Accreditation Commission (NAC) has accredited Cadence Academy Preschool in Normal.

We are always happy to share additional details about our accreditation.

Preschool & Childcare Programs Offered:

  • Infant Childcare (6 weeks – 14 months). Your baby’s journey begins in our infant childcare program. Because young children develop at their own pace, our staff monitors each infant continuously for normal developmental patterns, and uses creative activities to help them in meeting various developmental goals.
  • Toddler Childcare (15 months – 23 months). Toddlers need the freedom to explore and recreate the world around them. Through play and assessment, our teachers prepare your child to advance to our preschool classroom.
  • Two-Year-Olds (2 – 3 years). In this daycare program, our staff provides a daily report with your two-year-old’s eating, napping, and toileting routine, as well as daily academic accomplishments.
  • Preschool (3 – 5 years). This preschool program encourages your child to get involved in hands-on activities that enhance his or her preschool learning experiences, preparing them for elementary school.
  • School-Age Program (5 – 12 years). This program offers a combination of both organized and independent educational and recreational activities as well as distance learning support.
  • Summer Camp (6 – 12 years). As part of our summer camp program, children stay cool with fun, learning, and amazing friendships made along the way.

Our Positive Behavior Support (PBS) program focuses on your child’s social and emotional development, closely modeled after Vanderbilt University’s The Center on the Social and Emotional Foundations for Early Learning (CSEFEL) philosophies.

We work hard to build strong character and friendships so that students can be a part of a classroom where they work together and respect one another.

At Cadence Academy Preschool, we understand that young children first start to comprehend their surroundings from an egocentric perspective. Building strong attachments with caregivers and sharing feelings can help children better understand their emotions, as well as others. We recognize that once children start to realize that their peers have feelings and needs, too, they start to learn how to socialize with each other.

I love this center! My kids have been coming for about 6 and a half years and we couldn't be happier. The teachers are kind and knowledgeable and treat my kid like their own. It's a great school!

My children have attended Cadence Academy since 2014. My eldest son is autistic and needed some extra help with getting structured and prepared for school. Once my daughter was about 4 months old she started attending. Over time the kids became old enough to only attend school. I had another child in 2019 and brought all 3 of the kids to the same daycare. This place has been a safe haven. I can work and relax with knowing my children are being properly cared for. The daycare has been amazing through Covid and protecting our children from exposure as much as they possibly can. They go above and beyond to make you and your child’s experience here unforgettable. I am forever grateful to be a part of a family outside of my bloodline. Thank you Bri and Jo. We will forever miss Kadi. -Adrianna ♥️
