About Our School

We are proud to announce that Cadence Academy Preschool in Cordova has earned Platinum status from the Tennessee Department of Education. This is the highest level of achievement available and demonstrates our commitment to providing the very best care and education.

Cadence Academy Preschool, Cordova offers nurturing child care services for ages 6 weeks to 12 years old and a quality non-denominational Christian education that prepares preschool and kindergarten children to face the challenges that life presents. We offer a loving academic environment that encourages children to reach their full academic, physical, and spiritual potential. Our mission is to provide superior educational experiences that foster a love of learning and a meaningful relationship with the Lord!

Our school has been a member of the Cadence Education Family of Schools for several years. We changed our name from Cordova Christian Academy to Cadence Academy Preschool, Cordova in September 2019 as part of our school’s ongoing commitment to providing our families the very best preschool programs.

Our Programs

Bible-Based Curriculum

Cadence Academy Preschool is a Christian faith-based school and we utilize the Abeka Curriculum in our preschool and kindergarten classrooms. Abeka publications are built upon the firm foundation of scriptural truth and are written by Christian scholars who are grounded in the practical aspects of teaching.

The programs at Cadence Academy Preschool feature regular instruction in phonics, reading, math, science, foreign language, writing, music, art and bible lessons so that we can build a strong educational foundation that will serve your child for years to come!

Kind Child

Kind Child Program LogoKind Child is beautiful program that helps children develop social skills and character. We focus on social-emotional skills every month and introduce a valuable character trait like Positive Self-Image, Responsibility, Thankfulness, and Empathy every two months. We want every student to feel at home every time they walk in our doors and Kind Child is the perfect way for us to elevate the emotional well-being of our students and enrich friendships.

Food For Thought

Cadence Academy Preschool lovingly provides a nutritious breakfast, lunch, and snacks every day, which is included in the price of tuition. We encourage our children to try a variety of healthy foods from all the food groups through our Food For Thought program. We’re very picky about our menu and choose items that will help pave the way for a lifetime of good food choices.

We love Cadence Academy! Mrs. Kevia in the infant room is an angel! She takes the best care of our son. Ms. Shanicka is also great. She treats our baby like he is her own! This is a great place to bring your kiddos!!!!!

What can I say but that I am thankful to God for this daycare. My daughter, who is my first child, is my heart and when I returned back to work, I wanted to ensure that she was somewhere that was safe, clean, trustworthy, and Christian based. I found all of this in Cadence. The teachers are great (Ms. Keevia and Ms. Sherita- all of them really), the administrators (Angela and Marshanda) are kind and keep me informed, and the Director (Ms. Lisa) is extremely knowledgeable and competent. I appreciate the fact that when something does happen in the infant room, they send an email to the parents. I also appreciate the fact that the lessons and activities are helping my daughter to thrive and grow which is important to a new mom. Additionally, there is an app that informs me when my daughter is changed, fed, her naps, her activities- this brings me peace of mind when I am away from her. I prayed about this place and I know that it was God that answered me and directed me to send my daughter. If you are a new parent, or a parent in general, try Cadence out- you will not regret it.

"UNO, DOS, TRES, CUATRO, CINCOOOOO!!!" This was my son yesterday as we went over our numbers! To my surprise, he knows them in Spanish now! Kudos to Cadence! It gives me GREAT pleasure to write my review today. I am too excited! Today marks one year that my 2 year old son has been at Cadence Academy Preschool!! He has transitioned from the 1 year old class and is progressing even more. As a 27 weeker, my son shows NO signs of any developmental issues and I owe some of this credit to his teachers (Ms. Santerrica, Ms. Taryn, Ms. Marquisha and Ms. Tam)! He is growing and talking so well. Did I mention he sings all the time?! Yes, especially the days of the week song! I can't thank Cadence enough and I appreciate their office staff, Ms. Shanica and Ms. Angela! They are huge blessings and I love to keep them smiling and laughing! Most importantly, I would like to thank and give honor to the director, Ms. Lisa! She is AMAZING at what she does and I appreciate the way she follows the rules to ensure the safety of the children AND how she LOVES each child as I have witnessed this in the hallway! She is so present and makes sure every child is treated equally! I love Cadence so much that I just enrolled my newborn daughter! She is 8 weeks old and the infant class is amazing!! Her teachers, Ms. Keevia and Ms. Sherita, make sure that I am satisfied as a breastfeeding mother. They ensure that my daughter is okay every single day and have even admitted to spoiling her rotten! Lastly, I LOVE the fact that Cadence lives by the Kid Report app!! Wahoo!! I can check on both my children to see their activities and even pictures of them from time to time. I can't stress this enough... if you are looking for a great school for your kiddos, look no more... CADENCE IS THE PLACE TO BE!!! I would even venture to say that the "customer experience" of Cadence is the equivalence of Chic-Fil-La... they consistently care about the families and make sure we are satisfied on a daily basis! Thanks once again to Ms. Lisa and the entire staff!

My son has been at Cadence since 2019 and I have been very pleased with all of his teachers. I can not give enough praises to Mrs. Robbie, Mrs. Sabrina, and Mrs.Glenda (who has known my son since he was 12 wks old). They way they nature and educate the kids is phenomenal. I only wish this location went up to 12 grade. My son runs into his classroom with excitement and readiness to start his day. Ladies you rock!
