Our Preschool Programs

We have designed Cadence Academy Preschool, Eastfield’s preschool programs to encourage early childhood development through an array of fun, engaging activities.

Our Ascend Curriculum uses a skill-based approach to early childhood education. Each month, teachers focus on developing skills in nine different areas such as Literacy, Technology, Creative Expression, and Physical Fitness. We also have Baby Signs® for infants through two years old.

We offer the following early childhood education programs:

  • Infant Daycare (ages 6 weeks to 1 year). This infant daycare program helps maintain the strong bonds, warmth, and security your baby already enjoys with you at home.
  • Toddler Daycare (ages 1 to 2). Your little one’s sense of discovery and active learning are the focus in this toddler daycare program.
  • Early Learners (ages 2 to 3). We focus on enhancing gross and fine motor skills, vocabulary, and learning via discovery in this early childhood education program.
  • Preschool (ages 3 to 4). Our Preschool program strives to prepare children for Pre-Kindergarten.
  • Pre-Kindergarten (ages 4 to 5). Our Pre-K program incorporates the skills learned in previous years to get your child ready for the transition to Kindergarten.
  • School-Age Program (ages 5 to 12). Students are picked up from local elementary schools to enjoy an afternoon of enjoyment and education.
  • Summer Camp Programs (ages 5 to 12). This summer camp program is aimed at school-aged students and offers weekly themed activities throughout the summer months.

Our Philosophy

At Cadence Academy Eastfield, we believe in providing children with the tools necessary to excel in each stage of their development, ultimately preparing them for success in elementary school and beyond.

We offer the best Before and After school program in Huntersville; it includes homework help and free transportation to and from area schools for children kindergarten through fifth grade.

I absolutely love this location for my newest edition and special little guy in my life. Extremely, kind, caring and especially COVID friendly , warm and welcoming Center for having your little one exposed to a very small enviroment and to help to nurture while encouraging safe, social, learning and physical development. I absolutely enjoy getting the reports on a daily basis and the pictures. Especially when the pictures are unexpected. I look forward to having Jr to stay there until he can't go there anymore.

I have truly enjoyed my experience with Cadence Academy Eastfield. My son has been enrolled in the Virtual Learning classroom for almost a month now, and I have already seen an improvement in his understanding of new concepts. He speaks very highly of the school age classroom teacher, Ms. Mary. The staff have been extremely helpful in helping him as needed in his online curriculum, which is a huge relief as a parent. Thank you CAP Eastfield!

I came to this location as added support, and they welcomed me with open arms. The staff was very friendly, and Mrs. Brittany (Assistant Director) trained me very well on what I need to succeed in my role. The staff showed that they loved the children and they have a love for teaching which will rub off on the students to have a leave for learning.
