About Cadence Academy Tualatin

Cadence Academy Preschool, Tualatin first opened its doors for business in August 2015 when it was a Creative Minds Learning Center location. We changed our name to Cadence Academy Preschool in October 2019. We neighbor the Tualatin wetlands, which provides us a unique opportunity to view nature and various wetland animals from our school. Throughout the day, our preschool students get to see life science in action as they spot nutria, herons, ducks, and more!

We’ve also brought nature inside the school with facade walls made of bamboo and birch trees, and real tree accents throughout the hallways and classrooms. We have beautiful murals throughout our daycare center which were painted by artist Stephen Williams. These murals contribute to the individual personality of each classroom in our child care facility.

We are proud to be certified as an endorsed Eco-Healthy Child Care® by the Children’s Environmental Health Network, demonstrating our commitment to the health and safety of our children, staff, and families.

Our Preschool’s Programs:

Preschool Facilities

Our preschool features two outdoor play areas. One is set up as a Western town with rustic buildings that encourage dramatic play. We also have an balance beam obstacle course that our preschool students love. If you’re nursing, we have a calm community room where you can relax and connect with your child.

My passion for early childhood education began in 2006 when I became a certified in-home provider through FCC. My time with FCC really inspired me to continue my career in child care, implementing environments that have a home-like feel. I have played many roles including Teacher, Assistant Director, Director, and Area Manager. These roles have made me eager to help providers find their passion and continue to grow. The most rewarding part about this field is having the opportunity to make a difference in a child’s life every day through creating a culture that will they will take with them into adulthood. I look forward to growing as a professional alongside of everyone on our Cadence Team.

We love Cadence for their clean, safe and nurturing environment. We’ve always loved bringing our daughter here. But more recently we found out she has special needs (for selective mutism). And they are very willing and open to working with us on ways to help her communicate.

If I could give more stars I would! Cadence Academy Preschool is an amazing facility with an amazing staff. All the teachers are so kind and so profesional! They never fail to communicate and are always ready to answer any questions we may have. Going back to work I was hesitant with child care but Cadence Academy Preschool has made it so easy! I know my son is in great hands!

Tualatin Cadence Academy is wonderful! I have kiddos in different age groups in the school and have met and worked with the majority of the teachers there on some level. Every single one of the teachers has been so kind and professional. It's obvious that everyone from the school cares deeply about the education and well being of the children. Tonya, the schools director, and Helena, the Assistant Director, are incredible at keeping the school running well (especially through a pandemic) and keeping an open line of communication to all of the parents at the same time. They always responds quickly whenever I have any questions, and ensure all of my kids and my needs are met. I've had the pleasure of working closely with Teachers Kim, Liz, Sarah, Molly, Taylor, Chelsea and Lauren and they have all been spectacular! And Jessie makes the halls smell so delicious at drop off as she is prepping the snacks and meals for the kiddos every day. I feel safe with my kiddos here, and would absolutely recommend Cadence to anyone wanting to set their kiddos up for a safe, kind and exceptional education.
