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 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 have been with Cadence for 2 years now and love the directors and staff. Our 3 year old has built so much confidence and vocabulary since starting there in 2021. Our 8 month old gets the attention and tender care that he needs in the infant room as well as the time to explore with the rest of his friends. Cadence is a family and our children's home away from home.

My daughter spent two years with the Cadence team and we *still* talk about how much we love the teachers and friends who were part of her time there. While the environment was incredibly nurturing and loving, it also offered her a safe space to learn to be part of a group, compromise with other kids, learn how to follow a teacher-led routine, and advocate for what she needed. The director and assistant director were always transparent with me, engaging with my daughter, and ready to come up with a solution if I noticed our daughter’s needs changing. We are huge, huge fans of this school and especially the leadership. It’s a wholehearted recommendation from our family.

When I moved my family across the country, almost everything went wrong. We could not be happier that CADENCE ACADEMY went right. The incredible director, Tonya, was so supportive during this time of upheaval, and also eased our nerves as we sent our 9 month old to daycare for the first time. Every teacher that has worked with my baby has been kind and loving with her and she is always so happy at drop off and pick up, often times giving her teacher a few goodbye hugs before leaving for the day. The virtual tours given to us before we moved were so helpful in giving us a sense of what to expect when we arrived and the willingness to work with our schedule and start date was so appreciated. We can not recommend this preschool enough!

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.
