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.

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.
We are VERY proud to be a NAEYC accredited facility and a BrightStars rated program! For more information about NAEYC, the National Association for the Education of Young Children, and the high quality standards they demand of their accredited programs, please Visit the NAEYC website
Our school is conveniently open from 6:30am – 6:00pm and our affordable rates include breakfast, hot lunch and daily snacks. We invite you to visit us at any time; we’d love to give you and your family a tour. For more information or to schedule a visit, please call us at 401-233-2828.
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!
