About Cadence Academy Summerville
Our preschool and daycare provides early education programs and child care for children ages six weeks through pre-kindergarten. Our amazing 10,000 square foot early childhood education center features nine custom-designed classrooms where children play and explore in unique discovery centers, each designed to ignite their curiosity and allowing them to learn as they play. 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.
We also like to take advantage of the beautiful South Carolina weather each day, with lots of outdoor activities on our expansive, impressive playgrounds.

- Summer Camp Programs (ages 5 to 12). We equip children in our summer program with the tools they need to expand their academic potential and lead meaningful, enjoyable lives.
Our proprietary curriculum, the Ascend Curriculum, was created based on the philosophy that the most impactful way to support the development of academic skills is to give children some control over their own learning process. The Ascend Curriculum uses a “Whole Child” approach that ensures each child is supported, engaged, challenged, and having fun.
