Our Programs

Kindergarten Readiness

Kindergarten Club LogoAn exceptional education is an important part of our promise to you. We take a skill-based approach to early education and help our students reach important developmental milestones in all of our preschool programs. Our Ascend Curriculum starts in our Infant and Toddler classrooms and is designed to help children progressively build valuable skills sets as they move through Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten. We have an amazing program each spring called Kindergarten Club, where children get confident and ready for kindergarten!

Kind Child

Kind Child Program LogoKind Child is a wonderful program that allows us to focus on the social and emotional needs of each child in our care. Kind Child is a core subject in our monthly curriculum and we introduce emotional skills every month and focus on a new character trait like Respect, Responsibility, and Friendship every two months. Our goal is to develop the emotional well-being of our students and encourage friendships.

Parent Communication

 width=Cadence Academy Preschool has an open-door policy and we welcome our families to visit their children at any time. We have large observation windows and an open floor plan, so it’s easy to observe each classroom, which is also a great security feature. We offer a variety of communication pieces to keep our families informed about their child’s day and their developmental progress. Our parents also get access to an app called KidReports, which keeps them updated on their child’s progress throughout the day and includes pictures.

We recently moved to the area and were recommended by family to send our daughter to Cadence. We have been so impressed since day one, the communication between teachers, staff and parents is fantastic! I enjoy the fact that you can get updates throughout the day about what they are eating and things they are learning. We absolutely love it here, our daughter only goes 3 days a week but she asks to go everyday! She loves it and is so excited every morning to go!

Cadence Academy has taken care of both of my girls for the last 9 years. Sadly, my youngest is transitioning into her big sisters school this year but I have nothing but amazing things to say about this school and the staff. My whole family has formed an incredible bond with the staff here. Even through my hardest times they were always there for my girls to reassure them and give them so much love. Cadence academy in Carolina Forest isn’t just a school for my children, they have become family. We have been through a lot in the last 9 years and they were ALWAYS there for my kids. Every day I go in there and the staff greets my children by their first names (and nicknames). They really care about ALL of their children and I couldn’t have asked for a better place for my kids to grow up. This school has prepared my girls for a lifetime of success even when I was learning to do that myself. I love each and every teacher my children have ever had! Both of my girls had a blast at Cadence and excelled tremendously. The friends they gained through this school are bonds they will have for a lifetime. I have never had a bad experience here in the 9 years my children have been here. No matter the teacher, it has always exceeded my expectations! My children have been nothing but happy here. My youngest gets SO excited about water day every summer and is so sad that she is getting older and will be moving to a different school! I havent met a single teacher at this school that I wouldn’t trust around my babies! We love you all!!

I stayed in the Woodspring Suites across from this preschool and was DISGUSTED of how I saw this particular woman was treating the children.( white skin, long black hair in ponytail, blue shirt, black pants) It was a cloudy morning on 07/28/2021 around 10:25am the kids went outside to play in the hose water and I noticed the lady was spraying the kids harshly and I felt uncomfortable. Then as I kept watching, the lady yelled “stand against the wall or your gonna get sprayed” that’s when some of the kids went straight to the wall and others didn’t and they got sprayed. The same woman began washing their hands with the hose and SPRAYED THE CHILDRENS FACE AND HEAD!! I was shaking because I didn’t know what to do and I felt soo bad for these kids and their parents. I noticed the kids go out in groups and the next group had an actual sprinkler attached to the hose and that lady seemed great. Everything about that 10:25 ish group was awful! There was also 2 ladies in yellow and khaki in the group and they were fine. The lady I described needs to be fired immediately and if I were the parent and saw what I saw I would press charges!

My son attends this daycare and we have been pleased on so many levels. He has learned SO much since starting school there and really looks forward to going to school each day! The communication between staff and families is extraordinary; I really get a clear picture of everything my son did each day. They are extremely thorough with lesson planning and having unique and engaging activities for the kids. We are so so pleased we made the choice to bring our son here.
