School-to-Home Connection

KidReports LogoAt Cadence Academy Preschool, Allen, we believe effective care starts with the partnership between parents, teachers, and staff. Children thrive when this partnership is strong. We use KidReports to keep our families up-to-date with their child’s day and constantly communicate so they’re fully involved in their child’s development. Our center also has an open-door policy and we welcome our families to visit their children at any time.

Homelike Environment

Parents and kids love our family-friendly atmosphere and homelike environment! From the artwork and photos of our students to the natural tones used throughout our school, we make our daycare center feel like an extension of home for our little ones and their families. Vibrant colors and overstimulating designs can be overwhelming to young children, so we focus on creating a warm, comfortable environment that reduces tension instead.

I have been in early childhood education field for over 30 years and taught all age groups of children from infants thru afterschool prior to becoming a director. I attended the University of Minnesota-Moorhead where I received my early childhood education degree.

I am passionate about nurturing a child’s curiosity, developing problem-solving skills, and providing an academic foundation to support each child’s success in school and in life. It is an honor to partner with families on their child’s educational journey.

I believe in supporting my community and volunteer with foster care and homeless shelters. I enjoy traveling and have been to almost every state in the US. I have 3 grown children and 3 grandchildren that are the joys of my life.

We couldn’t have ask for a better school. The staff is so loving and caring. We were there 3 years and hated to move the kids. We moved them closer to home or we’d still be there.

Great place to work.!! Working there for 16 years. For me, watching the children grow and learn is rewarding. We work really hard to get the kids ready for elementary school. We work as a team making this job less stressful. Friendly staff, management is pretty awesome, great benefits.!!

Unfortunately, I was never able to even schedule a visit due to the poor customer service. The misleading contact number connected me to a national answering service that had little to no information on the Allen school. I was then transferred to the Allen location "to have my questions answered". Like the other schools I have contacted, I asked what I thought would have been a relatively benign question, "can you explain your curriculum/method to me". The terse response was "If I explain it you wouldn't understand" ?! I'm sorry but if you can't provide me with a succinct synopsis of your methodology- I don't know that I want you to guide my child's first experiences in education.

Cadence Academy Preschool Allen is a wonderful school with a great staff. I scheduled a virtual tour and the staff was very quick and responsive to my needs. The director took the time and explained what my baby would experience in the nursery. I was able to meet the teachers and see the curriculum. Although my baby isn't born yet I felt comfortable and confident in the care they would provide. Thank you for putting this first time mommy at ease.
