About Cadence Academy Wilmington

At Cadence Academy, Wilmington we offer child care and early childhood education programs for children ages 6 weeks through 12 years old. Our amazing preschool features 11 custom-designed classrooms where students have ample space for learning, yet enjoy a cozy atmosphere that feels like home. And, as elementary schools are altering schedules, we are here to serve your needs and the needs of your school-aged children with enhanced programs to help with virtual learning sessions and more.

Every parent and family is important to us, and we pride ourselves on delivering excellent care for our children. These efforts have not gone unnoticed:we were recently selected as the winner of the “Shorepicks 2016 Best of the Cape Fear Region” in the Childcare Center category and won Best Day Care in Wilmington for 2017 as voted by Wilmington Magazine readers!

Our Preschool & Childcare Programs

  • Infant Childcare (ages 6 weeks to 1 year) – An infant childcare program created to maintain the strong bonds, warmth, and security your child enjoys with you at home.
  • Toddler Childcare (ages 1 to 2) – We have designed our toddler childcare program to encourage your child’s sense of discovery and active learning.
  • Early Learners (ages 2 to 3) ­– Our Early Learners program focuses on improving gross and fine motor skills, vocabulary, and learning through exploring.
  • Preschool (ages 3 to 4) – This preschool program focuses on fully preparing students for Pre-Kindergarten.
  • Pre-Kindergarten (ages 4 to 5) – We weave in the skills and experiences taught in previous years to prepare students in Pre-K for the transition to Kindergarten.
  • School-Age Program (ages 5 to 12) – Students are picked up from local elementary schools to enjoy fun, learning, socializing, and growth.
  • Summer Camp Programs (ages 5 to 12) – From adventures in nature, to academic activities, and playing sports, this program ensures that kids do not fall behind in the summer break, while also ensuring they have a blast with their friends.

Our Philosophy

We know that a child’s first five years are critical to cognitive, social, creative, and physical development. At Cadence Academy, Wilmington, we encourage children to learn and grow by providing a foundation of developmentally-appropriate educational experiences in a safe, nurturing environment.

If you're looking for a place for your kiddos to go play, learn, build friendships, and flourish in all aspects. STOP LOOKING and call to schedule a visit to see for yourself! This school is ALWAYS clean, they have THE BEST staff out of all daycares/preschools in New Hanover County! Our kids are so excited every weekday morning to get up and get going out the door because they know that are going to have a fun filled day! My husband and I are just as excited as they are knowing that when they get home they will both have learned something new! Also with all of the safety measures Cadence Academy has in place for all their students, they give us peace of mind throughout the busy work day! Not once in years past have we ever had to worry about our children's well-being while they are in daycare/preschool! We don't say it enough but THANK YOU Cadence Academy teachers and staff for ALL you do for us and our babies!

My Daughter has been attending Cadence Academy for about 2 months now. Every day she is excited about going to school which makes me so happy to bring her. This isn’t everyone’s experience I’m sure but I know her teachers and those helping make sure the kids are safe, happy, fed and find joy in their day. At pick up in the evenings she tells me “Momma, I had a good day at school” which tells me she is leaving with a positive outlook and new memories to carry every day. I’m so thankful for Mrs. Monica’s dedication daily to carry out a loving and caring school for all of our kids. The Teachers undoubtedly care and love our kids.

Cadence Academy goes above and beyond. The kindness and patience the administration has with a disabled Marine veteran is superb. My daughter has physical deformities and is speech delayed. But the love, kindness, and patience demonstrated by the teachers is mesmerizing. We are grateful and bless to be part of the Cadence Family.

My daughter has attended Cadence for 5 years and we have loved every minute. The staff and teachers are so welcoming and loving. They love the children and work with them on skills and learning no matter what age My daughter learned so much while there and left well prepared to start kindergarten!
