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.

We have been sending our little ones here for over 2 years and absolutely love the school. The staff are amazing and always patient with the kiddos. I would recommend this school to anyone looking for childcare.

We absolutely love Cadence academy. Our daughter, who is 10 months old, has been attending since January, and we couldn’t be more pleased. Her teacher, Stefani, along with Michaela and the rest of the staff is wonderful. Stefani knows our daughter really well and does interactive activities with her throughput the day—it’s amazing to see how much our daughter has learned and evolved since she started attending. We highly recommend Cadence!

Horrible school. Employees are undertrained, underpaid, and overworked. Don't send your kids to a corporate school that doesn't care about them.

Is this the full story? No, of course not. There will always be things I don’t know or understand. But even so, my story and experience is something that should be shared with those who consider sending their children here.
