About Cadence Academy Clackamas
Cadence Academy, Clackamas opened in January 2013. Our teachers and staff proudly serve families from Clackamas and Happy Valley at this daycare center and our campus features environmentally-friendly classrooms, toys, and equipment. We have a community room for nursing mothers, an indoor gross motor area for rainy days, a children’s garden, outdoor play areas, and a brand new commercial kitchen where we prepare healthy meals and snacks every day.
We offer well-rounded childcare and preschool programs that features the Ascend Curriculum, music and dance, Reggio Emilia inspired art, science, and gardening.

I have worked at Creative Minds since 2013 as the Lead Infant Teacher in our Sunflower and Daffodil Classrooms as well as being the Assistant Director. I love being a support to families, teachers and children at my school because I consider them my family as well as a huge part of my life. I love watching the children learn and grow into smart, independent individuals that will one day move on from us to be successful in their future. Just knowing that I played a part in helping a child grow puts a smile on my face.
It is very important to me that anyone who walks into our school feels the love and time that we put into making our school the best it can be! Working closely with my Director and staff to make this happen is one of my goals here at CMLC.
