Our Preschool’s Programs

Our Approach To Early Education

Ascend Curriculum Logo

Children thrive when they regularly participate in engaging educational activities in a safe, nurturing environment. Thanks to the flexibility built into our Ascend Curriculum, we continually offer our preschool students a variety of experimental and playful activities and encourage them to select which activities they want to participate in. Our experienced teachers act as facilitators and progressively introduce important skills in nine subjects every month.

Our preschool in Greenville, SC has a wide range of activities that can be modified to provide more challenge or more support — this allows each child to develop at his or her own pace. The pride that our teachers have in our preschool shines through our learning approach and in everything we do. You will find happy children engaged in a wide range of learning activities in every classroom.

My daughter has been going to Candence for about 1.5 years now. I feel comfortable when we drop her off that she will be well looked after and will come home with a new skill. Thank you all at Cadence. Shout out to, Mrs. Rebecca, Mrs. Tammy, Mrs. Kameryn and Mrs. Yaharah. Thank you for making our little girl feel loved. 💗

I am really happy to have my boy at Cadence, a place where you can trust that your child is happy, safe and sound. I am greatly thankful to Ms Jen B, Samantha W, Melanie R, Hanna J, Joanna T, Sianna Gaines, Alchemy P, Ms Kayle, Ms Jenn (director). We started in December 2022 and it took a very short while for Lucas to adapt and get along with his friends and teachers. Although he’d been changing teachers often at the beginning, it didn’t harm or make him feel uncomfortable. It’s a couple of months that Ms Jen B and Ms Samantha W are his teachers. I appreciate everything these 2 ladies are doing for my son. Mornings asap we put clothes and shoes on him, he runs to the car to be driven fast to school. He’s doing that even on weekends and he gets upset when we don’t put shoes on his feet. We leave him at the class door and he runs fast to his friends and teachers without crying or being sad. He comes home happy and every week I discover that he’s telling or showing us new things that he learns. Small progress is a big step to success. I get almost every week, sometimes every day pictures with my boy playing outside or inside, learning to eat or do different educational activities. Teachers pay special attention to expressing through signs. I am emphasizing that because in our house we speak 3 different languages and my boy is now 1,6 years, but not yet talking. Signs, are a great method applied. I even saw a couple of times Ms. Jen showing him and telling at the same time, which was followed by my boy’s and another kid, that was near him, reaction. It is important when your child grows emotionally stable and gets the proper care, while busy parents need to be at work and are not able to invest time with children. I trust Cadence Academy and it’s staff hoping that it will be same best all the time. Thank you. Eugenia Pintilei.

Words cannot express how happy we were with our decision to send our toddler to Cadence. For two years she had a handful of teachers as she moved through the classes and every single one of them was perfect in every way. The director and her staff genuinely care about the health and well-being of your child. We would have remained at this school had it not been for relocating to another area. Thank you Ms. Jen, Ms. Kaylee, Ms. Rebecca, Ms. Tammy, Ms. Monica, Ms. Davelyn, Ms. Alexis, Ms. Jamie, and all the other teachers and staff that had such an impact in our daughter’s life!
