About Our Daycare and Preschool In Louisville, KY

Cadence Academy Preschool in Louisville, Kentucky was previously called Little Scholars Private Preschool, but we changed our name in March 2018 to reflect our ongoing commitment to providing Louisville families with quality child care and preschool programs. We remodeled our school with new flooring, fresh paint, and lots of other amenities during this transition, but it’s the proprietary programming like Kindergarten Club and Kind Child that truly makes the difference in the lives of our students.

We have a highly qualified teaching and care staff at our Louisville preschool and provide a loving and comfortable learning environment where students feel at home. We offer different daycare and preschool programs to meet the needs of every family. All of our programs are designed to provide a well-rounded preschool experience and prepare your child for kindergarten.

If you have any questions about our preschool programs in Louisville, KY, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We would be happy to answer any questions you have and give you a tour of our school.

Childcare & Preschool Programs

Here are the programs we offer at our Louisville daycare and preschool center for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years:

Kind Child

Kind Child Program Logo

Kindness is the foundation of our preschool’s culture, and Kind Child is one of the nine learning domains within our Ascend Curriculum. Each month, our teachers focus on developing valuable character traits like Thankfulness, Empathy, Friendship, and a Positive Self-Image. We focus on the emotional development and well-being of each child in our care so that everyone feels welcome and valued.

If you’re looking for a preschool in Louisville with a strong focus on character education and emotional intelligence, Cadence Academy Preschool is the right choice for your family.

Food For Thought

Our preschool provides a nutritious breakfast, lunch, and snacks every day, which are included in our standard tuition. We encourage our children to try a variety of healthy foods from all the food groups through our Food For Thought Program. Our preschool menu includes items like fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grain bread, rolls, and pasta, low-sugar yogurt and cereal, and much more. We’re very picky about our menu choices. Our aim is to nurture both body and mind and pave the way for a lifetime of good food choices.

Safety & Security

The safety and security of the children in our care are always a top concern. We have 14 security cameras inside our Louisville preschool center and two more cameras on the playground. We have a secure entry system, and there is always a staff member up front to greet family and screen visitors.

Your child’s health and safety are also extremely important to us. Each of our classrooms is equipped with toys, furniture, and equipment that is appropriate for that age group, and we have air purification systems in each room too. We love outdoor learning, and there’s a covered playground with a large outdoor ship when the weather is favorable and two indoor dramatic playhouses when it isn’t.

Loving and Caring Environment for Infants and Toddlers

If you’re looking for a preschool with a loving and caring environment for your infant or toddler, Cadence Academy Preschool is a perfect choice. The classrooms at our Louisville center are designed to be age-appropriate, and we have a low teacher-to-student ratio so that each child can get the individual attention they need. We foster a nurturing and playful environment filled with educational hands-on activities that will help your little one develop a positive self-image.

Preparing Your Child for Kindergarten

The Cadence Academy Preschool curriculum is designed to prepare your child for kindergarten. We believe that a well-rounded preschool experience is important in encouraging lifelong learners, so we focus on nine learning domains: Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies, Arts & Crafts, Music & Movement, Cooking & Nutrition, Outdoor Play, and Character Education.

Ongoing student assessments help to ensure that children are on the right path at a pace that they are comfortable with. In this way, your child will be ready for the academic challenges of kindergarten, and they will also have the social and emotional skills they need to be successful in life.

Hi my name is Mrs. Jennie Kreutzer. I have been married 10 Years to my wonderful husband Darryl. I have two step sons Lee and Jacob. We have a beautiful granddaughter LaDonna. I have been around children all my life. I have been in childcare for 18 years. In 1984 I started working in a three year old classroom and had 12 children in my class. They sure kept me busy! I worked with that age for about 4 years. Then I started working in the office and also helping our in the infant room and loved it. After working at that center for several years they ended up closing the center so I changed my career. I started working at Sears as an office Supervisor and stayed there for 10 years. I really missed working with children, so I decided I wanted to come back to childcare. I started working here in 2008 working in the infant room and absolutely love that age. I love each and every one of them like my own.

I don't even know where to begin. With all the stories in the news, I was terrified to take my baby girl to daycare. I found Cadence online and someone told me that they heard it was good. I spoke with Denise, the director. She was so sweet and understanding. It took a little time to get in, but she kept me informed and as soon as there was a spot, she let me know. The first day we walked in and couldn't get past the lobby without a code. All the kids have to be signed in on the iPad then type a code in the door to go back to the classes. The director's door is right by the front door so she sees who comes in and out. I felt much more secure about who was going to be able to get in. We were greeted as soon as we entered with smiles. When we walked down the hall, everything was so clean. There was children's artwork hanging on the walls. Everything was so well lit and decorated nicely. Teachers were in their classes with their kids, which you could see through the windows or if their kids weren't there they had their doors open and they were greeting others as they walked in. Everyone was so friendly. Now, we get to the infant room. This is where the magic happens! Mrs. Jennie is the Grandma that everyone wants! She is the most amazing infant teacher. My daughter instantly loved her. She is the most caring, comforting, sweet woman I have ever met. She treats each baby in that room as if they are her babies. My daughter reaches for her in the mornings when we get there. She is so excited to see Mrs. Jennie. I hate being away from her so long during the day, but I feel good when I leave her at Cadence. I know that she will be taken good care of. I know that she will get love and attention. She will get to play with her little friends, and learn new things. Best of all, I know that my girl will be safe. If you are looking for a great daycare and peace of mind, this is the place to go. I am sure you will not find a better place.

The team at Cadence Academy has been a wonderful daycare and preschool for our family. Our son has attended the 8715 Bardstown Rd location since he is 2.5 years old. Initially it was challenging to get a spot, and we had to repeatedly contact the school and be patient. It was well worth the wait. All staff is kind and diligent and it is obvious to me as a parent that everyone is passionate about teaching and caring for children. My son loves his teachers and staff, enjoys going to school and is happily playing in the classroom when we pick him up. Teachers are diligent to intersperse teaching and play time, kids go outside when weather permits, my son always has sunscreen applied when needed and nap times are scheduled. Nevertheless, they are also flexible to adjust to individual kids. My son is no longer a good napper at 5 years old, and his teacher adjusted the posters near his rest/nap area in the room, so he could study them while quietly resting. He is interested in science and she made sure to rearrange the science posters for him. There has been a turnover of teachers in one my son's classrooms, which can happen, but he always was well taken care of. He loved being in Ms Alica and Ms Diane's room as a 3 year old, and adores Mrs Christina in the Preschool room. The kind child lessons are wonderful and very enriching, and the Pre-K program has allowed for my son to be kindergarten ready well ahead of starting in the fall. The Covid shutdown period and subsequent process changes were especially taxing, and the staff has always been gracious to all kids and parents. The school's director Ms Denise has done a great job communicating throughout. Director and teachers are always available for a quick chat as needed, which is very helpful as a parent. I could not think of a better school for my child and highly recommend Cadence Academy.

Know one will take care of your child better than you, but those at Cadence Academy do an absolute wonderful job. They truly care for your child and their well being. Being a childcare provider is not an easy job, especially these days, but they come in day in and day out with a smile on their face and I can't thank them enough for taking care of my girls. You won't be regret sending your child to Cadence Academy.
