About Our School

Welcome to Cadence Academy, Chesterfield! We understand that finding the right child care provider can be difficult for many families and we’re to help you in any way that we can. Our preschool offers nurturing daycare services for infants and toddlers, educational preschool programs that are proven to prepare young minds for future success, and summer camp and before & after school care for elementary students.

Our school is a member of the Cadence Education Family of Schools and we changed our name from West County Day School to Cadence Academy Preschool, Chesterfield in September 2019. This change is part of our school’s ongoing commitment to providing families in Chesterfield the best preschool programming possible.

Preschool & Childcare Programs

Kind Child

Kind Child LogoPreschool children need to have positive interpersonal experiences at a young age so they can develop the social skills needed to succeed in elementary school and as adults. Kind Child is a program that allows us to nurture and strengthen social skills and develop character. We focus on social and emotional skills every month within our Ascend Curriculum and introduce positive character traits such as a Positive Self-Image, Respect, and Thankfulness every two months. Our objective is to elevate the emotional well-being of each child in our care and encourage positive friendships!

An Exceptional Education

Ascend Curriculum LogoCadence Academy is proud to offer preschool children an exceptional education that will serve them for years to come. Our Ascend Curriculum is skill-based and provides us a connected framework that progressively builds skill sets across 9 subject areas like Literacy, Technology, Spanish, and Physical Fitness every month.

Important skills are taught at every age level from Infant to Pre-Kindergarten and fine-tuned just before kindergarten in our popular Kindergarten Club program. Testing shows that this skill-based approach to early education is extremely effective at preparing children for kindergarten.

I absolutely love watching each child that I work with learn and grow. I have been in the Early Childhood field since 2002 and received a degree in Early Childhood from Webster University in 2004. I have taught infants through 1st grade, with a year as an SSD Para-educator. I have also worked as a mentor to new teachers, coordinated fundraising events, planned and organized School-Aged summer camps, and attended Professional Development conferences geared toward early learners. I am trained in Conscious Discipline and was a member of the Character Education Committee at Windsor Elementary.

I am the proud mother of 2 very energetic children. When we’re not at school, we love to spend time outdoors, go to the library, have dance parties, and watch movies. We also enjoy visiting our friends and family as often as possible. We are so excited to be a part of the Cadence Academy Family!

Both of my sons have happily attended Cadence Academy for years now, but this past year has been exceptional. In a time of so much craziness and uncertainty, Rebecca and the Hilltown team have been my anchor! I have truly been impressed as Cadence has evolved and changed to meet the needs of its families. They supported elearning, they bus my kiddos to and from school and they cover snow days. They go above and beyond 'monitoring' my school-age kids. They play soccer with them and board games and teach them life lessons. I have such piece of mind to know that my kids are in a safe, supportive and fun environment every day.

Our daughter has been a Cadence student (with the exception of the past year due to Covid and being home schooled) since 3 years old when we joined from another corporate daycare. All I can say is wow! From the directors to the teachers to the building to the curriculum, we have been beyond impressed with the school and our daughter has thrived here. The manor they approached Covid last year was incredible and gives me the assurance they take child care and safety very serious. We are expecting a new baby and she will attend daycare in their infant program this summer. Recently since our now 5 year old has been homeschooling pre k, we joined the Kindergarten Club program. I highly recommend this program for anyone looking for a virtual Kindergarten prep course. While it’s only been a week, my daughter is beyond excited about this and has a renewed sense of accomplishment. The teachers are great with the kids and the school does a great job providing materials for the parents to print and have ready. The class meets daily for an hour so it’s easily manageable and the kids are able to stay engaged since its not super long. Highly recommend!!

I cannot say enough good things about being an employee at Cadence Academy! The environment here is full of positivity and professionalism that encourages teachers, and the staff are all so welcoming, genuine, and kind. I have been working here for the past five months and it has been an amazing experience of helping children learn and grow. I feel like I lucky I get to learn and grow with them! I am so grateful to be a part of the Cadence family and have a job that I love.
