Our preschool and daycare center is located just south of Woodstock in the Brentwood-Darlington neighborhood of SE Portland. Our building was originally built as a nursery school in 1968 and we put our preschool facilities through an extensive remodel before opening as Cadence Academy Preschool, Brentwood in 2005. Our classrooms are designed to engage your child in an early learning experience unlike any other and we provide fun, educational childcare and preschool programs.

Preschool Programs:

Commitment to Quality (C2Q)

 width= Cadence Academy Preschool is committed to providing quality care to families in Southeast Portland and we’re happy to have earned the Commitment to Quality (C2Q) designation through Oregon’s Spark program. Spark was created to raise the quality of child care and early learning programs across Oregon. The foundation of the Spark process is continuously improving the quality of care being offered to Oregon families and the C2Q designation shows that our child care center has a solid track record with state licensing agents and that we have taken steps to improve our quality of care.

Our Preschool Facilities

Cadence Academy Preschool, Brentwood is one of our smaller childcare centers and because we have low teacher to student ratios, we provide your child more one-on-one experiences with both teachers and peers. We do not allow drop-ins, which allows your child to create stable friendships in a safe, secure setting. Each classroom is light and bright and features comfortable reading areas, dramatic play centers, sensory areas, and plenty of room for gross motor activities. We also have a beautiful, secure playground. When the weather permits, we enjoy walking across the street to Brentwood Park for more outdoor fun.

Open Door Policy

We have an open door policy and actively encourage parent involvement in our preschool community. You can participate by reading to the children, helping in our garden, attending school events, or joining us on field trips.

Getting to our Preschool

Cadence Academy Preschool, Brentwood is conveniently located at 7103 SE 60th Ave, Portland, OR 97206. We’re located just north of SE Ogden St on SE 60th Ave across from Lane Middle School and Brentwood Park. We’re a favorite of families living in Woodstock and Brentwood. If you’re looking for childcare in a setting that’s an extension of your home, schedule a visit online or over the phone! We can’t wait to show you around our preschool learning centers and introduce you to our teachers!

Interim Director

I have an Associate’s Degree in Early Childcare Education and over 7 years of experience in a childcare center. I have been with Creative Minds for over 5 years now. I started off as the Lead Toddler Teacher and worked my way up to becoming Assistant Director here at our Brentwood location.

I am grateful to Creative Minds and Cadence Education for sharing their family with me. I enjoy walking into work each day being greeted by the smiles from our little ones and their families. My passion is teaching young children to become independent, caring, and responsible individuals by providing positive guidance, nurturing relationships, and exceptional education.

Our son attended Cadence from 2.5 years old to 5 (kindergarten). We absolutely loved it! The staff and the facility are fantastic. Going to miss everyone there :)

We sent both our kids here.  The director, Estera, has been there the entire time we have gone. She's sweet, kind and tuned in to the kids. The Woodstock location is very neighborhood like.  We will miss our time there !

Cannot speak more highly of the teachers at Cadence Academy Brentwood. Our daughter is thriving thanks to the staffs' kind, thoughtful, and communicative nature.  The lesson plans are creative and interactive, and their outdoor play area is incredible! We were initially hesitant to send our daughter to child care during COVID and had in-home care longer than initially planned, but we could not be more pleased with our decision to send her to Cadence Academy.
