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.

Cadence Academy is hands down the BEST daycare EVER! When you walk in you’re greeted by a smiling and caring Mrs. Kayla and Ms. Jenn! The Associate director and Director. They run that school better than I’ve ever seen RAN! They are in the KNOW and on top of future events, holiday's, field trips, school pictures, crafts, school dress day themes. The children are very engaged with their curriculum and activities and are constantly learning something new each day! When you walk around to each classroom you are definitely treated like FAMILY! And there’s a lot of LOVE there for the children and their well-being! You can tell the teacher's truly love their jobs! That’s why they’ve had most teachers working there for over decades at the center! To me that speaks volumes! And was one of the reasons why we sent our 3 boys to that school. The other daycare that the boys went to was close by- that started with a K is a total nightmare! The building looks super nice on the outside and is ver deceiving! I was called twice every week to pick up my sickly children. I think from the lack of teacher to child ratio? And usually on a Thursday we would get that call- so that insured them that my child would not be allowed to come that Friday! So that was very inconvenient and the teacher turn over rate was weekly. We never really knew who was in charge of our children! So coming from that- to going to Cadence is a day and night experience and we’re so pleased we went there! I had such peace of mind. And that’s the Best feeling when you send 3 babies! Thank you! To all the teachers at Cadence! AKA Ms. Brittany in infants- Ms. Kamryn, Ms. Davlyn, Ms. Jenn, Ms. Joczlyn, Ms. Kali, Ms. Crystal annd Ms Norah… y’all are the BEST!!!

The difference we saw in our daughter after switching to Cadence at the start of this year was like night and day. We spent a year at another more expensive school and had toughed it out that long thinking that was supposed to be the best of the best and maybe we just had a sensitive kid who didn’t adjust well. We had a few things come up at our old school that prompted us to find alternate care and that’s how we found Cadence. We went from having a child who cried and begged not to go to school every single day and would come home an overstimulated, overtired wreck - to a HAPPY kid who is EXCITED to go to school and actually runs straight to her teachers most mornings and comes home with a much better attitude. If you’re a new parent looking at daycares for the first time, or looking to move your child from an unsatisfactory environment, Cadence is by far the best move you could make. Thank you to the incredible staff for all your hard work and long hours to make sure our babies are happy and safe!
