Preschool Programs

Ascend Curriculum

Ascend Curriculum LogoThe Ascend Curriculum takes a unique skill-based approach to early education that you won’t find outside our family of schools. Most preschool curricula are either all play or overly rigid and scheduled. Our curriculum meets in the middle by having a flexible framework that continually builds valuable skill sets while still leaving lots of room for fun and play.

Our teachers focus on specific skills within nine subjects every month. We often move at a challenging pace, but we encourage our teachers to modify activities to match the needs, interests, and current skill level of each student so that these first educational experiences are engaging and fun!

Our School Age Programs

Cadence Academy Preschool, Charleston has a number of excellent programs for kindergarten and elementary school students from 5 to 12 years old. We offer before and after school care for students at three elementary schools during the school year and a full day program over school breaks and during Summer Camp.

We provide transportation to and from Drayton Hall Elementary School, Oakland Elementary School, and Springfield Elementary School. Spots are limited, so please contact us to confirm availability. And, as elementary schools are altering schedules, we are here to serve your needs and the needs of your school-aged children with enhanced programs to help with virtual learning sessions and more.

Cadence is Ryan's first school. We appreciate the efforts and good memories Cadence brought to our family. I think Cadence is a very good school. Because I can feel the love that teachers gave to Ryan. Even me and Ryan’s dad had the feeling of being at home in cadence. Different people have different way of evaluating schools. To me, cadence is 5 out of 5.

Our little girl has been here for almost a year. We love the staff at Cadence! From Misty, Ms. Linda, Ms. Destiney, Ms. Robin, Ms. Kia and everyone else, they make our girl feel so loved. She lights up when we pull into the parking lot and is squealing to get out the car because she is so excited to see her favorite people! The crew here really make you feel like family and really take care of each other. We love it here at Cadence!

My daughter attends the summer camp there. She is having the best time. She has been learning all about different states and doing many projects and activities to go along with them. She has been telling me about things like the Boston Tea Party.

Since my husband and I are both teachers, and I have experience as a preschool director, our standards for a quality daycare are about as high as they can get! Over the past 2 years that both of our children have been at Cadence in Charleston, we have seen the staff and teachers at this school go above and beyond every day to not just take care of our children but to truly love them and help them to grow. Every single teacher that my children have had has been wonderful, daily communicating with us, planning educational activities, and always listening to our thoughts and needs. In addition to excellent care, Cadence Charleston and it's staff have always welcomed my son, who has autism, with open arms and have literally done everything they can to accommodate his needs. Every single therapist who needs to visit him has been welcomed, safety procedures unique to him were completed with no questions asked, team meetings with his teachers were held when we requested them to update Cadence staff on his progress-his teachers even learned some basic sign language to make sure they could always communicate in ways that were meaningful to our boy. My son has always been made to feel like he is a vital member of his school, and that acceptance and love mean just as much to us as keeping him safe. For any special needs families out there, this is the place for you. We are only leaving Cadence this year due to the fact that my babies will now be in school full-time. We are going to genuinely miss this daycare and can honestly say these staff have made a lifelong positive impact on our family. Thank you Cadence of Charleston!
