At Cadence Academy Preschool, we believe that every day is an opportunity to explore, learn through play, create friendships, and simply enjoy being a kid. We encourage the development of curiosity and persistence in our daycare and preschool programs by giving our students an appropriate level of control in their own learning process.

We take a skill-based approach to early education and individualize educational activities to the interests and current skill level of each student through our Ascend Curriculum. Our goal is to create well-rounded students through fun and engaging activities that actively develop intellectual, social, emotional, and physical skill. Our preschool teachers progressively introduce new skills within learning domains such as Mathematics, Technology, Cultural Understanding, and Creative Expression each month.

Childcare & Preschool Programs:

NAC Accreditation & Silver Circle of Quality

We are proud to be an NAC Accredited daycare center. Our accreditation is a reflection of our staff’s hard work and dedication and demonstrates our commitment to providing high-quality programming. Accreditation helps us maintain important standards of care, but also provides a framework for us to continue to enhance and assess our childcare programs. For more information about NAC Accreditation, please visit

exceleRate Silver Circle of QualityOur preschool has also earned the Silver Circle of Quality through ExceleRate Illinois. Silver Circle programs must meet or exceed quality standards in learning environment and teaching quality, training & education, and administrative standards.

Positive Behavior Support

We utilize Positive Behavior Support (PBS) to reduce or eliminate challenging behavior in our preschool classrooms. This approach was developed by the Center on the Social and Emotional Foundations for Early Learning (CSEFEL) and uses a pyramid model to address social and emotional needs of children. PBS greatly reduces the amount of time our staff and teachers spend addressing challenging behaviors and allows us to focus more attention on the development of our students.

Our Preschool’s Location

Cadence Academy Preschool, Kays is conveniently located at 409 Kays Dr, Normal, IL 61761. We were previously a Rogy’s Learning Center location, but changed our name in September 2018 after we became part of the Cadence Education Family of Schools. We’re just north of Bloomington, Illinois and about a mile south of the I-55. Contact us to schedule a visit today!

Our daughter loves Cadence! It is her first school experience and due to the love and care her teachers give her at Cadence, she has loved every minute of it! I would recommend Cadence to any family looking for a welcoming environment for their child!

Cadence Academy is an amazing preschool! They are kind, fun, and truly invested in my child's learning. Since coming to Cadence, my 20 month old has begun using more words and communicating overall much better than when he started just a couple months ago. it is wonderful to see his improvement already and I look forward to what's to come with the help of his wonderful teachers. Thanks Cadence Academy!

My daughter had moved into town from the east coast and needed to find a place for my twin grand daughters. We did our research and saw that Cadence Academy Kays had 5 stars. We made an appointment, toured the school, and felt so comfortable with Becky that we did not even tour any other preschool. My granddaughters are very smart and very active and require stimulation daily, but they also require being in separate classrooms to ensure that they grow as individual kids. Cadence supported our decision to have the girls in separate classrooms and we have all seen their growth in only one month! Our introvert has now become very confident in her language and decision making skills, and our extrovert has now learned how to play well with other children! The teachers are amazing in making the girls feel comfortable and confident everyday! We drop them off they are happy to be at school and when we pick them up they are all smiles! Thank you very much for everything Cadence Academy - Kays!

I chose to stay at home with my daughter for the first few years, so trying to find a daycare was very overwhelming. Before the girls even started, all of the staff at Cadence were so welcoming. They have always made us feel like it’s a second home for the girls. They provide daily pictures and updates on the app, which is very calming when I want to check in! My 2.5 year old has SO much fun and talks about ‘school’ all the time. She has learned so much. My 7mo old is so well taken care of and always smiling in every picture. All the teachers have always followed every request I have when it comes to the girls (potty training, feeding plan, ect.) and that’s been so amazing! I never have to worry about the girls when they are in daycare, and my husband and I can both fully focus on work. We are so grateful we found our cadence, and for all of the teachers that are so amazing with our girls!! Thank you so much!! I highly recommend to anyone looking for an excellent daycare that also has structure and a great curriculum!
