About Cadence Academy Preschool in West Linn, OR

Cadence Academy Preschool provides a positive, loving, and nurturing learning environment for young children. Our programs are designed to enhance what children naturally love to do… learn! Our indoor and outdoor environments were specially designed to give each individual child opportunities to learn and grow in beautiful surroundings. Preschool aged children will be offered opportunities for independence while using aspects of Montessori such as Practical Life and Sensorial materials in addition to our proprietary Ascend curriculum.

The Ascend Curriculum is designed to develop your child’s cognitive, physical, social-emotional, and creative abilities. Skill-based learning has been proven to help students think critically, learn to solve problems, and become more independent, so they can succeed in elementary school and beyond.


We serve families throughout the greater Portland area including West Linn, Lake Oswego, Wilsonville, Oregon City and Tualatin.

Stephanie Adamcyk

School Director

I love engaging with the children and being a part of their social, emotional, cognitive, and physical growth and development journey. I also enjoy supporting and mentoring the teachers and watching them shine. I started working in early childhood education when I was 18, I had my daughter and wanted to be where she was. The plan was to follow her as she grew but I couldn’t see myself leaving after falling in love with these little ones (6 weeks to 4 yrs old). I wanted to be a part of their lives as well. I started out as an aide and became a teacher soon after. I had the most fun teaching pre-kindergarten, I spent most of my years with that age group before moving up to administration. I was an assistant director for several years before moving up into the director position. It was as a director that I found a larger purpose. I was no longer just in charge of 12 kids, but instead was a role model and leader for the entire school.

She left for some time after having her daughter to stay home with her and returned in 2021. She earned her Infant/Toddler Montessori certification in 2020. She was recently promoted to Assistant Director and loves being able to not only support and guide the children of our school, but now the teachers as well. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her husband Steven and daughter Logan-who is also a student here!
