About Cadence Academy Sellwood

Cadence Academy Preschool, Sellwood opened in 2011 and has since served 100s of families in SE Portland. Our preschool center has a private children’s garden, naturally designed outdoor playground space, laundry facilities, and a community room for nursing mothers.

Our Sellwood school provides a secure and loving environment for children between the ages of 3 months to 6 years of age and offers daycare services for infants and toddlers and early education programs for preschool and kindergarten students. We seek to enrich children’s lives through our skill-based Ascend Curriculum while developing self-esteem and confidence. Our young students are exposed to creative ways of learning while experiencing arts, music, and dance in an educational and visual environment.

Our Programs

Our Preschool Teachers

One of the strengths of our program is our teachers. We enjoy a low turnover rate and our preschool teachers have years of experience in certified childcare centers. Many of our Lead Teachers have Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees in Education and Early Childhood Education and we require our Lead Teachers to have at least two years of experience working in a daycare center. Our teachers participate in ongoing professional development trainings.  Also, our teachers are leaders in their classrooms and help us envision and create affirming experiences for our children and families.

Exploring Our Beautiful Sellwood Community

We love exploring Sellwood! Children at Cadence Academy, Sellwood get to enjoy walking trips to nearby Sellwood Library and Sellwood Park, which is only three blocks away from our preschool. We also take our preschool students on fun field trips to destinations like the Oregon Zoo, the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, and the Portland Children’s Museum.

It has been a great experience for both of are kids. We have been at this location for the past 6 years and have really enjoyed it. Highly recommend.

Couldn't be happier with my preschool. The food is healthy, my son is learning things above and beyond what I'd have expected for his age range, and the staff is great.

Our child has been attending Creative Minds for 2 years and has had a great experience. We appreciate that they use an app to provide a full report of what the kids do throughout the day, what they ate, how long they napped, etc. The facility is clean, and they do a great job of rotating through different toys and activities to keep the kids engaged. I like that they balance free play time with structured, learning-focused activities and art. Our child looks forward to going to "school" each day.
