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 had our daughter in daycare and preschool here for 3 years, 3 days a week and loved it! It has been a difficult couple years for childcare facilities and parents alike, but Cadence and the Gateway team in particular were communicative, thoughtful, and responsive through it all. Our daughter thrived and went from a shy toddler to a social and adventurous kiddo. Teachers seem to really care and know their stuff. The scheduling flexibility, price, and responsiveness were also great.

Hello, What are your prices for an almost 3 year old (aug. 24th), that’s not yet potty trained? Also, are there any openings for new children right now? Thank you!

My child been in Cadence since she was one years old now she is 4 going on 5. I love her teachers very caring, genuine, I feel comfortable addressing issues or concerns and it's handled in the proper way. I love the curriculum as well. And the classes are a smaller space more one on one with the children to learn and build a relationship with peers/adults.

My 2 year old is so excited to go to school to see his teachers and friends. The staff are warm, comforting, and I truly feel safe and happy to drop my son off here 2 days a week. The price is great too considering prices of other locations. I also appreciate that I have the option to drop my son off 2 days a week instead of requiring all 5 days like some other schools do.
