Our Programs

Kind Child

Kind Child Program LogoKind Child is a wonderful program that nurtures and strengthens social skills and develops valuable character traits. Preschool children need much more than intellectual development during their early educational experiences and Kind Child is the perfect way for our teachers to focus time each month on social and emotional development.

We introduce new social-emotional skills every month and a different character trait like Responsibility, Thankfulness, and a Positive Self-Image every two months. We have found that when we focus on the emotional well-being of each child in our care, we also strengthen our school!

AdvancED Accreditation

AdvancED Accreditation LogoAdvancED is the largest community of education professionals in the world and is deeply committed to the care and education of young children. Preschools and child care centers that earn Early Learning Accreditation through AdvancED must meet or exceed educational standards and provide a safe, encouraging, and nurturing environment that supports the development of young children. Cadence Academy Preschool of Bent Tree has been AdvancED Accredited since June 2011.

My granddaughter has been attending this academy preschool, which is aptly named, for about two years. She'll be three in September and can recognize and say her colors. Can count to at least 10. Her vocabulary is astounding, she speaks clear. The staff doesn't baby talk to the kiddos, which is great for their development. I don't recall my kids daycare starting to teach them at this age. Preschool started at 4 yrs old. Love to pick up Elena from here, although, i don't enjoy 😉 dropping her off because she's genuinely happy to go to her preschool. The staff is really friendly and accommodating. Her parents did great in picking this preschool to care for her.

I really enjoyed working at Cadence Academy. Unfortunately, I moved & had to find something closer to home. Ms. Bobbie is amazing & always goes above and beyond to make her staff/parents happy. Ms. Tyffanie has a fun and loving presence; very understanding. She has an open door policy. Anytime I needed clarity on a specific topic, she was always available to answer the questions I had. I will miss working for this company.

I like this place and the location. Teachers and the administrators are very nice and joyful they listen to you and try their best to meet your expectations for your child/children. I had conversations with the front staffs ,and they were very helpful and nice towards me .Especially the older lady she has a soft voice always on the go making sure that everything is going well in the building.

We have had our girls at Bent Tree for years and cannot recommend it enough! They have flourished there and our oldest was well set up for elementary. We love the teachers and they have done a beautiful job caring for and educating our girls!
