About Cadence Academy Portland

Cadence Academy Preschool, Portland offers nurturing childcare and preschool programs for families in NE Portland. This school served as a preschool in the community for over thirty years prior to us opening our doors, but needed major remodeling before it became the first Cadence Academy location in 2000. Our preschool center features two cottages, a fenced playground, and an outdoor gardening area.

Preschool Programs

Our Educational Philosophy

We take a balanced approach to early childhood education and have created a preschool environment where children find joy in learning. We are focused on the social, emotional, and intellectual development of each child in our care and we work towards the acquisition of meaningful and useful academic skills.

We give each child the tools to succeed so that when they enter more formal educational systems later in life, they have the skills and confidence to thrive. Our preschool and childcare programs encourage positive relationships and the development of critical thinking skills, which evolve through experimentation, exploration, and play.

Family Involvement

Communication between parents and school is a critical aspect of a successful early educational experience. We have a Parent Orientation prior to your child’s start date, parent conferences each April, and constantly provide feedback on your child’s development.

We have an open door policy and encourage your involvement in our preschool community. Many parents stop by to read to the children, help in the garden, participate in school events, or join us on field trips.

We've been sending our kids to Gateway Cadence-Academy for over four years now and we couldn't be happier to have found this wonderful daycare. The staff are always so kind and welcoming, they feel like family. The director is absolutely amazing at her job, I do not know how she does it! You can tell that the kiddos and family's experiences are really important to her and she is so thoughtful and responsive in all that she does. And the facility is so fun with the most amazing outdoor spaces. They've been really careful during COVID and have gone above and beyond to keep everyone safe. Can't recommend this gem of a daycare/preschool enough!

Our daughter has been attending Cadence for a few years now and we so appreciate them and the care they provide for all the kids. Staff are good natured, friendly and are nurturing our daughter’s creativity, compassion and interest in learning. Having a Kindergarten program has been essential this past year and we feel she is being appropriately prepped to start school next year. We love Cadence and all that they do!
