Our Preschool’s Programs

Kind Child

Kind Child Program logoKind Child is the cornerstone of our preschool’s culture and an important subject within our Ascend Curriculum. 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!

Ascend Curriculum

Being a part of the Cadence Education Family of Schools gives us access to preschool programming that you won’t find anywhere else. Our proprietary Ascend Curriculum allows us to help children progressively build skill sets across 9 different subject areas including Literacy, Spanish, Science & Sensory, Technology, and Physical Fitness.

We work towards important developmental milestones at every age level, which helps our students feel confident and ready when it’s time for the big transition into elementary school. Our teachers are trained to select and modify individual activities so that they fit the interests and learning styles of their students, which makes these first educational experiences engaging and fun! We want your child to develop a lifelong love of learning and the Ascend Curriculum provides us a flexible framework to make that ideal a reality.

Michele Campbell


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.

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!

We are so thankful for the amazing staff and teachers at Cadence Academy! Our son has grown so much socially and academically as a result of their caring team and structured classrooms. After touring a few local daycares, we knew this was the perfect fit for our family; it’s clean, well maintained, extremely welcoming and safe! We also appreciate their great communication and rapport with families, as well as their extra effort and attention in all the activities they plan for the students and their families. I highly recommend Cadence Academy for care for all ages!

My kids have been at AIL since they were 6 months old and have been in every classroom. The teachers are absolutely amazing!! The director and assistant director are so welcoming and are great with communication. They are always planning fun activities and after hours events for the kids and families. Even before COVID the center was super clean. They have done a great job since all of the restrictions were put in place to make sure the kids aren’t missing out and have kept it as “normal” as possible. My kids constantly talk about their teachers and often get upset when I pick them up earlier than they think I should! They have learned so much and definitely are ready for school. I would recommend AIL to anyone!! It has been our home away from home. ❤️

My son has been at AIL since he was 6 months old and we’ve loved the experience! The directors ensure parents are informed of all important things, and the teachers are caring and excellent. More important for us was the virtually nonexistent teacher turnover and very clean facility. I attribute much of my son’s advanced stages to the curriculum of AIL. We moved and are very sad to leave the AIL family, but that means a spot has opened for your child.
