We are delighted to be apart of the Cadence family. We made a tuff transition to murfreesboro and were very nervous about putting our son in a new school. But we have enjoyed every bit of our time here. From the faith-base curriculum, to the kind staff, we would definetly recommend this school to anyone.

Where do I start!? I loved willow tree (now called candence academy) from the start ♥️ my son started when he was 5 years old and I always had trouble teaching him at home. When he started he didn’t know any letters and he struggled with shapes He graduated the Junior K program knows all letters and sounds he could write his name and his shapes weren’t an issue. He also was so interested in the Bible and learning about Jesus!! I was so happy that I enrolled my 1 year old and she is now in the preschool program and she loves her teachers and Mrs. Alicia! Mrs. Alicia is always so helpful and she truly is the bomb.Com 🤩 even through the Covid years now they have always been very well at communicating with parents and trying to keep every child/staff safe. My kids are happy there so it makes my heart filled with joy to call cadence academy our home away from home ❤️

Our son started in the infant classroom at 13weeks and is now almost 9 months. I can not say enough kind words about his teachers and the rest of the staff. His whole face lights up when he hears his teachers voices when we drop him off every morning. That alone is so comforting, knowing my child is happy and excited to be there. They are incredible at communicating with us. The app they used to share daily activities keeps me the loop all day about how he is doing. Cleanliness is also top notch. I expected our son to come home at some point with some “daycare born illness” because kids share germs. And he has yet to catch anything. I would choose this school over and over again.
