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.

Kris Helling

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.

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.

My two-year-old has been going to Cadence Sherwood for two months now and LOVES it. I expected a tough transition since he’s been home with me since he was born, but nope! He almost leaps into the teachers arms at drop off and it’s the best feeling to know he’s learning, interacting with other kids and being well taken care of. We’ve seen a huge development in his speech and sharing skills (only child) and couldn’t be more happy with our decision to take him to Cadence a couple days per week. They’ve handled the COVID situation so well, taking every necessary precaution and keeping in constant communication with the families. I love that I can easily check in on him through an app and that any questions I have are answered quickly by the school director, Ashley. All of the teachers that I have interacted with have been so welcoming and lovely. It’s obvious our kiddo feels the same from the big smile on his face when we pick him up!

We have had three children at this school through the years. Two have moved on to elementary school so we only have one left in this school. The school had seen some changes as they had some shifts in leadership. However their current director, Michelle, has been wonderful. Our daughter has loving teachers and we're so grateful to have them. They provide a fun and happy environment where she has grown in many ways.
