- Our Team
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.

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 www.naccp.org.
Our 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.
