About Cadence Academy Preschool, Smithfield

Cadence Academy Preschool, Smithfield offers high quality child care and early learning for infants, toddlers, preschool, pre-kindergarten, and school age children. Our early learning program centers around our unique Children’s Workshop Framework curriculum, which combines RI Early Childhood Standards with the Massachusetts state standards and centers around play to provide your child with an educational experience unlike anywhere else.

Our school age buses and vans provide transportation to and from Smithfield and Johnston Elementary Schools. In addition, we service areas of North Scituate. If you are unsure if we service your area, please give us a call!

Our school is located on Cedar Swamp Road, right off Route 44 about a mile past the Smithfield Crossings. Our spacious layout gives a one-of-a-kind feel to the classrooms and allows each age group their own learning experience. We have two large playgrounds nestled safely behind our school to allow for lots of outdoor experiences, natural exploration, and safe gross motor time outside with similar age groups.

Parent Communication App

We have an extraordinary Parent Communication App that our teachers use daily to relay information and send pictures to family members, send newsletters, and track developmental progress for each child’s portfolio! With this application, parents/guardians are able to opt into email or text alerts and they can receive any information, instantaneously, about their child and their child’s school day.

Teachers and staff can tag daily pictures with our Developmental Domains (Social/Emotional, Physical, Artistic, Cognitive, and Language/Literacy) and are then able to communicate with the parents/guardians by adding captions or sending quick little notes. Families LOVE this feature and we’re utilizing it more and more each day! We are so excited to be able to communicate with our families throughout the day and to show them what their children are learning each day.

I have been in the field of Early Childhood Education for over 15 years. I started out as a classroom teacher and as my experience and education grew, so did my passion to make a difference in the lives of children and families. I believe that every child deserves a positive early learning experience because it is their first love of learning that will help them grow into lifelong learners. I would love to meet with you and show what our school has to offer. I know we will leave a lasting impression!

Our kids love Cadence Academy in Smithfield. From the first phone call, the enrollment, through pre-k graduation and everything in between, we have received top tier education. We feel safe, our kids feel loved AND liked and they are getting smarter every single day. We are so happy that we made the decision to come here. This is a great investment in our kids’ future. Thanks Cadence!!!

I am really glad we had our little one transition to Cadence for many reasons! They are essentially a well-rounded childcare provider. Cadence is able to meet our needs and hopes for our child and family with their academic structure and style, warm and welcoming culture and the all inclusive meals and snacks was a huge plus for us, and so much more. We have plans for our little one to graduate to their awesome private Rhode Island education accredited kindergarten program that they offer as well for kids whose birthdays fall shortly after the public school cut off age.

This is a great daycare. My infant son attended for 3 months (9-12months) before he transferred to the location closer to our home. He loved his teachers Ms. Laura, Ms Harley and and Ms. Jen. Not only did he always have fun playing there, he did arts and crafts, was read to, sung to and in general loved. He grew here and had fun and most importantly we knew he was in good hands here. We love the app they give you to follow your child day, see pics of him, know what they are doing activity wise, when changed, ate etc. I highly recommend Cadence Smithfield daycare infants classroom.

Our experience with Cadence has been nothing short of exceptional in every way. The Director and staff continually pour themselves out to support each student and understand that not all children are the same. An approach that might work for one student may not work for another, and they invest themselves wholly into figuring out what approach is most successful for your child. As a parent of a high-energy 4yo who has struggled to keep his cool when frustrated/upset, I would carry incredible anxiety to work each day worrying about his behavior at school. But the staff at Cadence has supported our family from day one. They recognize that you can't boil the ocean in one day and were willing to put in the time and communicate with us openly to find solutions that suit his needs. They love him, build his self-esteem, and have taught him so much about self-regulation of feelings/body when he's struggling. As a parent, I couldn't ask for anything more.
