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.

My daughter has being going to the Gateway Cadence Academy for 3 years now. We are so happy with the school, the teachers, and the community. The teachers are all dedicated and invested in each individual student. The environment is welcoming and there is a great outdoor space for playing. I recommend this daycare and preschool to everyone in the area. It really does feel like a family.
