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.

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.

Cadence has been an incredible place for our family - the staff is welcoming and compassionate yet very diligent about health checks - the wellbeing of the staff and students is paramount. Communication/updates have been consistent and quick to respond if we ever have a question both through the ap or via email. The educational programs are well thought out and we've seen impressive progress in our children through the last year - both at school and at home. Should also mention that our kids love the food provided as well (props to the chef!) All around a very well run school and the staff is top notch. More than happy to recommend as they've been superstars throughout the challenges of the past year!

We were two weeks before we started our child here and we asked about if our son needed to be fully potty trained as he does need a little help at times. We were told that they require kids to be completely self sufficient as it is not fair to all of the other kids that are.  We had put our deposit down back in December and that would of been nice to know then but I couldn't get the school on the phone to discuss my son and his needs.  I highly recommend collecting all of your information prior to placing your deposit.

Cadence Academy - Tualatin gives me peace of mind everyday when dropping my daughter off at daycare. Tonya, the school’s Director is very communicative and detail oriented with her main focus on the children’s safety and well being. Teacher Heidi and Teacher Katie of the infant room are beyond amazing and care deeply about my daughters development and happiness, and do an excellent job of sharing her day to my husband and I through the schools app. We love Cadence Academy!
