Kind Child was built upon the premise that young children can only begin to develop empathy by understanding feelings. We help every child develop emotional intelligence by focusing on new social skills every month and a valuable character trait every two months. Our goal is elevate the emotional well-being of each child in our care, which in turn strengthens our school!

Michele Campbell

Director

Hello, my name is Michele Campbell and I’m the Director here at Adventures in Learning in Oswego. I have been part of the Adventures in Learning team since 2005.

I first started working at an early learning school in 2001, floating around the school and working with all of the different age groups. In 2005, I become the Lead Teacher in the 2 year old classroom at Adventures in Learning in Aurora and I enjoyed watching the 2’s reach new milestones. In 2007, I had the opportunity to become the Assistant Direct here at Adventures in Learning in Oswego and in 2010, I become the Director. I have always enjoyed the daily interaction with our parents and children. I love going to all the classrooms and watching the children learn a new milestone.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family. I have a large family and we spend a lot of quality time together. I like to vacation at Walt Disney World. When I’m not at Adventures in Learning, I enjoy running, reading, and going to the movies.

CAPO has the most caring & amazing staff!! My daughters loved being here. It was wonderful seeing our daughters get excited about going here in the morning and then not wanting to leave at pick up. We have unfortunately moved out of the area, so we no longer can attend, but they still talk about their time there and both miss it so much. The teachers first build relationships with each of the kids to then focusing on teaching them in an individualized way. Additionally, they are committed to providing a safe, clean, fun, and loving environment. We’re very thankful to all of the teachers for making our experience the best!

It is so hard to pick a preschool that is the perfect fit for your children. I had visited a few preschools before going to AIL in Oswego (now Cadence Academy). After our initial visit, I knew this was the perfect fit for my daughter and signed her up. She started her new adventure in the two year old room. She had never been away from me and her first couple weeks were difficult as I left the classroom each morning. The teachers, director and staff were so caring and attentive to this new change she was going through. The communication was outstanding detailing all the important information about her day. I always felt good knowing my daughter was in safe hands. My daughter continued to come to AIL after school when she started Kindergarten. The only reason we left is that we moved. We still continue to drop in to say hello to our AIL family! The director, Michele is top notch! She really enjoys getting to know each child and watch them grow up. She provides a clean, safe and fun environment for the kids. I always loved how she decorated the environment with fresh looks, new pictures, canvases created by the kids from each of the rooms and seasonal changes. It was always fun to see the kids projects and drawings on display. My daughter was well prepared for Kindergarten and beyond with the education program in place and the social skills she learned at this home away from home. The summer programs were amazing as well. Each summer program was themed and packed with fun and engaging projects, activities and many day trips. As a parent who wanted a safe, fun place where kids could be well taught and grow socially and emotionally, I strongly believe this was our perfect fit and have and would continue to highly recommend Cadence Academy. Thank you, Michele and the AIL family we have been a part of. The experience has been exceptional!

I cannot say enough good things about this school! My daughter has been here since she was 2 and she will be starting kindergarten soon. All the teachers are very caring and patient. It’s such a wonderful feeling when you drop your child off at daycare, you know they are in good hands and you don’t have to worry. The school itself is very clean and provides a fun, safe environment for kids. My daughter has learned so much while attending preschool here. I highly recommend this school!
