Our Philosophy

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.

I am so happy to have discovered Cadence Academy! Transitioning from a stay-at-home mom to introducing my toddlers to a public school environment was very scary for me. Mrs. Debbie and her staff at Cadence of Summerville, helped me to make this transition even before I formally knew them. All of the guidance she has given was very supportive in helping my entire family have a smooth transition from home to school. The facility is designed and managed to support a learning and safe environment for the children. I feel 100% confident that my children are being well cared for, and it shows in their excitement to return to school daily; and their reluctancy to leave when it it is time to go home. They are excited to tell me about their day, everyday. I am so grateful for Cadence and excited to know they are helping to give my children an excellent start on the journey of education that will extended well into their adulthood.

I can not say enough good things about Cadence Summerville. After having a really bad experience at another daycare we were extremely guarded and worried on our daughters first day. I immediately felt that sigh of relief when we picked her up and saw the smile on her face. The staff genuinely care for the students and their parents. Every morning I am met with a smile and when I have something to chat with them about they attentively listen and follow through with my requests. They even go above and beyond and schedule fun events for the kids to keep them engaged! I highly recommend Cadence Summerville to all my Mom friends and sing their praises. My daughter went from being afraid to go to school to now being excited to see her friends and her teachers every single day.

I have two children that have attended Cadence Academy for almost 3 years and we have had ZERO issues with this daycare! We move around often and have experienced several other daycares with my other children and this by far has been the best. I highly recommend this location!
