About Cadence Academy Preschool

In our classrooms you will see children from ages 6 weeks up to 12 years old explore and create with their environment as they develop their cooperation skills, build self-confidence, solve problems, and develop a strong love of learning at an early age.

The activities happening in the classroom are purposeful and driven by the needs and development of the children in that specific classroom. As you walk through our classrooms you can see evidence of the learning that is happening each day for our students.

We are proud to provide our parents with weekly communication so they can stay involved with their child’s progress. Our success is clear from our strong positive reputation in a small community. Our teachers are passionate and skilled, and tend to stay on with the school for many years! Meals and snacks are included in tuition.

Our Philosophy

Our school environments inspire children through calming natural displays that create a sense of community.

What Makes Us Unique

The heart of our program is the people who are part of our school community.  From our management team, to our professional and experienced staff, to the families whose children grow up in our program, each is essential to the feeling of community and our school culture of partnering together to support children in all areas of their development.

Together as a team we help every child excel and thrive during their early years of development. We continue to reach out to the Sherwood community to continue raising the bar of excellence in early childhood education.

School Director

I feel as though I have been working with children my entire life. Straight out of high school I started teaching Sunday school at my church, while I was going to school. Throughout my college years, I worked in various childcare centers during breaks and even spent 2 semesters working at our student lead childcare center on campus. Directly out of college, I went into a 2-year-old classroom. I have taught every age from 1-year-olds up. From there I took a management training program, where I moved my way up in the ranks with another childcare company. In 2019 I came to work at Cadence and I have loved every minute of working here! I look forward to a long future with Cadence.

Assistant Director

I have been working with children since 1993. I have spent most of my time teaching school age children during summer camps and before and after school. However, I have worked with everyone from 3 years old and up. I came to Cadence in 2017 as the school age teacher. I love being part of the team, and through my dedication to our school, I was offered the Assistant Director position this year. I love that I can support the entire school, but that I still get to have times in which I can go be silly and sing songs with the children.

We have had a great experience with our daughter here, who started during covid. Teacher Michelle has been great, and Director Ashley is great about answering questions, and is very responsive! My baby will attend in the fall as well.

I cannot recommend Cadence Academy in Sherwood enough! My son is in the pre-K program and absolutely loves it. This is saying alot since he cried almost every day last year going to a difference preschool. Now he often says he wants to go to Cadence on the weekend because he likes it so much! We could not be happier. Everyone from the Director to the teachers are so welcoming and responsive to any and all needs. The education in my opinion is great! He is learning upper and lower case letters, numbers including addition and counting by 2s, 5s and 10s and he can write his name and knows the days of the week and months of the year. He is well prepared for Kindergarten next year because of Cadence.

My pre-schooler joined Cadence just a few weeks ago and we are so appreciative of all the wonderful teachers there and (from day one) have been so welcoming and so wonderful! My preschooler came from another daycare that just wasn't the right fit for him anymore and so I was a little nervous about his transition. But, the staff at Cadence has made it nothing but like home for him. He actually looks forward to school each day and they are getting him back on track for Kindergarten (as he was falling behind at his previous daycare). They also have amazing communication and are always looking for fun things to do at their center so the kiddo's can look forward to activities/dress up days/parties -etc. I am so happy we made this transition and just want to thank the Cadence staff for being so awesome!!

A wonderful school open most of the year that other schools aren’t. We’re in love with Cadence Sherwood! I’ve never had any money concerns with this school. Our previous Montessori school was all about the money. Tuition, work hours, and donations required. This school is very reasonably priced for as much as they offer. Very satisfied.
