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 for ages 2-5.

Preschool Programs:

Commitment to Quality (C2Q)

 width= Cadence Academy Preschool, Broadway 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

Creative Minds 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!

Our son started at Cadence Academy in January. We have been fortunate enough to have him home with us his first year and due to Covid he started at Cadence with very little social interaction with others. As parents we were nervous for him to start in a school where we too had only seen without classes in session due to covid. From day one out worries have been eased by the amazing staff of teachers in his class and the whole school in general. Communication is amazing! We receive daily updates and always get a fast response if we need more information. They helped our son adjust to his home away from home. He looks forward to seeing all his teacher, Tiffany, Angelica and Ruth. The director Estera is doing an outstanding job overseeing the school and in our eyes is another teacher! Thanks Cadence Academy Brentwood for making our family of three part of your community. Melissa, Katie and Silas!

We have been so happy with both our daughters’ experience at Brentwood Candence Academy! There is so much warmth and heart in everything they do! The director is very responsive and profession, but so great with the kiddos as well. We really felt like family there. Very good enrichment, nutrition, and outside time. Would recommend to anyone!

We've had such a wonderful experience with Cadence Academy for both of our children! The kids love their classes, teachers, and friends. After starting at Cadence quickly became so excited to go to school. They both have blossomed socially, which was huge after months of strict quarantine at home. The COVID precautions are thorough and help reassure us during an unpredictable time.

We are so happy with the care they provide for our daughter. Estera, the director, has been so wonderful to work with and the teachers are all fantastic people. I highly recommend Cadence Academy Brentwood!
