Looking for a private preschool that attends to the social and emotional development of your children and prepares them for success in elementary school? Then look no further than Cadence Academy Preschool, Branch Hollow in Carrollton, Texas!

Ascend Curriculum LogoOur Ascend Curriculum develops academic, physical, emotional, and creative skill and features activities in subjects such as Cultural Understanding, Baby Signs, Literacy, Mathematics, and Technology. We find that children learn best when activities are geared towards their interests. Our teachers are encouraged to individualize activities and engage in small group instruction so they can better respond to the needs and interests of each child.

Kind Child

A cornerstone of our preschool curriculum is our Kind Child program. The goal of Kind Child is to elevate every child’s feelings of happiness and encourage positive friendships. We introduce valuable character traits such as Responsibility, Thankfulness, Sharing, and a Positive Self-Image and develop social and emotional skills. We have found that when we attend to the emotional well-being of each child in our care, we also strengthen our school!

We have been attending Cadence Academy for over 20 years. (When it was still Peanut Gallery) my daughter goes there now and my son is 26 but he went here when he was little. My nephews and my friends kids have attended as well. If you are from Carrollton then you know this school. There are a lot of reasons for loving this school but one of the most important is the Directors and the teachers. There is not a high turnover here like a lot of places. In fact Teri, the director has been here for over 25 years. She has never left. That says a lot to me about the school and the people that have owned it. Most of the teachers I know by name because they have been here so long as well. It’s very much like a family which is great since our kids spend so much time with those that work here. My daughter learned baby sign language and some Spanish before she was 2. She attended the Pre-K class here as well and when she started kindergarten she already knew a lot of the material which was fantastic. I have tried other schools years ago and even worked at some and none of them come close to the care that is given here. Which, by the way, if you are wondering how they have handled all the challenges this past year has brought, well they have done great. While many other schools closed their doors, Cadence was open. My daughter has attended throughout the pandemic and we have had no issues. If there were any concerns they were addressed immediately so it stopped there. I would 100% recommend this school. If you are not familiar with it already or you are new to the area, just ask a few people that you know and I can almost guarantee that someone you know is familiar with Cadence Academy. They probably even had kids that went here or went here themselves.

They’re really good with my kids and my kids love going to school every day to see their teachers. And they are learning a lot there. The teachers are understanding and the director is a wonderful women.
