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 beautiful preschool classrooms feature artwork by a local artist who was also a teacher at Cadence Academy, Allison Bratt.

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

Love and Logic LogoOne 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 and are Love & Logic certified. 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.

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.

My twin boys are in their third year at Cadence. Their teachers and providers have been compassionate and intelligent. My boys are now in Kindergarten and have attended full-time during the COVID pandemic, and our expectations have far been exceeded in all aspects of their education and care. As both a mother and an RN, I highly recommend Cadence.

We moved to the neighborhood in July and were desperate for some help with our toddler.  With covid slowing down a bit in the summer, we decided to check Cadence out.  So glad, we did.  Alana and the teachers are great.  My son loves going to school.  Despite the uptick in cases in the winter, we have decided to keep him in daycare.  We feel cadence and their staff are doing their best to ensure a safe space for the kids.
