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!

We have had two children at Cadence Academy preschool since November 2019. The teachers and administrative staff and friendly and kind and my kids love going to “school” each day. We have been so pleased with the changes made to accommodate for the COVID pandemic and we are very confident that our children’s health, safety and well-being are at the top of Cadence’s priorities.

I highly recommend Cadence Academy Preschool in Smithfield, RI. My 2-year-old boy loves this school. I already see a lot of improvement in all aspects of his development. The staff is warm and caring and the facilities are good. Good thing is they also include meals in the tuition fee which is very convenient when both parents are working. There are also lot of development activities that happen daily to keep my kid busy and engaging. I'm really amazed by the way they are able to handle everything so well even during covid times. The Kid reports app is one more good thing which is always up-to-date with all of your kid's activities (includes pics and videos as well). I would recommend Cadence Academy (especially the Smithfield, RI branch) to all my friends and family around!!

Our daughter has been coming here for about a year and a half and we are very pleased. She seems to be really happy in her new preschool class! Teachers/staff are all very friendly and I feel my daughter is getting a good education and is taken care of. I would recommend to others.

My 3.5 year old son had never been in "school" or daycare before, but he hit a learning stage where we knew he would benefit from being in school. He was not 100% potty trained, which limited our options, and I really wanted him somewhere that would follow a stricter curriculum than just your average daycare. We looked at several schools in the area and quickly settled on Cadence Academy. In this time of pandemic, it was a little scary for me to let my baby go to school for the first time, especially since I couldn't even go into his classroom, but the administrators and teachers have been amazing in making me feel like I can ask them of anything. Everyone is very communicative with me, even in times when their internet is down. My son is BEYOND excited when we get to school and he sees Ms. Ruth & Ms. Tanya, and he usually has a fit when I come and pick him up because he doesn't want to leave his friends. We started out at 3 days a week (for my comfort as well as his) and quickly needed to go to 5 days when he spent one off day telling me no less than 10 times that he wanted me to take him to his school. His teachers are absolutely LOVELY and send regular reports throughout the day, what toys he plays with during center time, what their intended lesson plan is that day, what food he eats (or doesn't eat), if he takes a nap, etc. AND they got him to be more regularly potty-trained! He still has accidents, but they are way fewer than they were before!
