Our Preschool’s Programs

Our Approach to Early Education

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

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

What Makes Our Preschool Unique?

  • We serve a nutritious breakfast, lunch, and an afternoon snack, which we include in our regular tuition.
  • We provide our parents an app called KidReports, which keeps them updated on their child’s progress throughout the day and includes pictures.
  • We have large observation windows and an open floor plan so it’s easy to observe each classroom, which is a great security feature.
  • We offer the best After School program in Greenville, SC. Our After School program includes homework help and transportation from Oakview Elementary, Woodland Elementary, and Buena Vista Elementary School.
  • We also provide full-time child care for elementary school students during public school holidays and the summer. We pack these days full of fun activities and field trips.
  • Finally, we offer a music program, a computer program, a nutrition and fitness program, and a soccer program as extracurricular activities.

Our daughter has been attending Cadence Academy for over a year. We are thoroughly impressed with the caring staff and the program itself. During COVID, they have taken extra precautions to keep their facility safe and we have felt comfortable sending our daughter to school everyday. I love that they are welcoming to all, focus on kindness, and emphasize process, not product! Our daughter loves going to school and loves her teachers and friends. She comes home with new skills and it's wonderful to have a partnership with the staff so we know that we are reinforcing what she is learning at home and they do the same at school! We could not be happier with Cadence Academy!

This school is amazing! I can't say enough good things about them! Before I enrolled my child they were very informative, nice, and patient with me and all my questions. Now that my son has been going for two months they have that same momentum and have even sent an email each week to ask if they are meeting our needs...uh YESSSS! I absolutely LOVE this daycare they teach the kids soooo much. Ms. Jenn & Ms. Christi do just as much as the staff! If you're looking for a loving environment that teaches your kids this is the place!!
