About Cadence Academy Harbison

At Cadence Academy Preschool, Harbison in Columbia, South Carolina, we provide a safe, stimulating, and enjoyable environment that is ideal for early childhood learning.

Our private preschool has an open layout with windows throughout the buildings. Three large playgrounds surround our preschool, allowing for age-appropriate fun as your child grows. We also have large classrooms that feature “interest centers” for children to explore. Our experienced staff members divide our preschool programs by age group and caring, experienced teachers who love working with children lead each of our classes.

We recently updated our early childhood learning center, including fresh paint, new cabinetry, and even more learning resources in all of our classrooms.

At Cadence Academy, Harbison, we offer the Ascend Curriculum, which includes nine learning components, such as literacy, math, science, technology, Spanish, and much more. Our preschool curriculum uses a “Whole Child” approach that ensures each child is engaged, supported, challenged, and having fun. 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.

Our childcare programs include:

  • Infant Daycare (ages 6 weeks to 1 year). We maintain the strong bonds, warmth, and security your baby enjoys at home in this infant daycare program.

Cadence has super friendly and helpful staff. They have an app to give you updates and photos of your baby, which gives me peace of mind.

Cadence Academy really loves my little boy! My little one smiles each day when I drop him off. I love the pictures they send of him playing and having fun! We love the cute little crafts that he brings home. We know he is safe and loved by the staff. I would recommend them to anyone!

My daughter absolutely loves it here! The teachers are amazing and Miss Laura is the best of the best! I don't think my families transition to SC would have been so smooth without them. The staff has created such a welcoming environment, I couldn't imagine sending my daughter anywhere else!

My family absolutely loves Cadence Academy Preschool, Harbison. The staff is extremely friendly and welcoming! My daughter recently started there and immediately fell in love with her teacher. As my daughter learned to adjust to daycare, the staff was extremely patient with her and kept me informed about her progress every day. They were willing to answer my questions and made me feel extremely comfortable leaving my child with them, especially as a first time parent. I will never go anywhere else. Cadence academy is my daughter’s second family. I do not know what I would do without them.
