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.

Cadence academy has the most caring genuine staff. My daughter loves coming to school everyday and is close to all her teachers. Cadence is our home away from home. I highly recommend Cadence Academy to anyone seeking excellent care for their child (children).

There is absolutely nothing harder than spending so much time apart from my little one but him attending Cadence makes it all worth it considering he is learning so much each and every day. We are always so surprised with all of the new skills he picks up from being in such an enriching environment. The excitement on his face when he sees his teachers tell us all we need to know… he is in the best hands and so very loved. Not only do I feel 100% comfortable leaving him but I also get to see real time updates (pictures, feedings, diapers, etc) via the app, which my husband and I both have access to! (Photo sent to our app from his teachers included ♥️) Another bonus of this center is the safety of the building. The front doors remained locked at all times and each family is equipped with a personalized code to enter. This was a huge deal to us as we wanted to make sure our little guy was going to be in the safest place possible. If you are looking for a school for your little one, Cadence is the only option!

Me and my daughter are fairly new to cadence academy and so far i enjoy the center and feel comfortable leaving my baby in their care. I can trust that they will take good care of her. I love how happy she gets seeing her teachers and I love the pictures and updates I get of my child throughout the day.

Between our two kids, we've been with Cadence for eight years. Both have been with the school since birth and we can't say enough about how wonderful our experience has been. I always knew they were loved and taken care of! Additionally, our oldest is on the spectrum and we have been so impressed with how the teachers have been with him; while teaching him (and preparing him for school), they have all been patient and shown him so much care. We're going to miss attending so much -- we highly recommend them!
