Welcome to Cadence Academy Preschool in the Galleria Towers in sunny Dallas, Texas. Our preschool and early child care offerings are now as rich and diverse as the expansive Galleria mall next door.

About Cadence Academy Preschool

As a Licensed Child Development Private School providing care for Infants through Kindergarten-Prep, we understand how crucial these early years are to children’s success in school and life. That’s why our professional, dedicated staff always strives to engage our children with interactive learning activities designed to stimulate cognitive, socio-emotional, and physical development. We are extremely excited and honored to help your child achieve these important developmental milestones while building a love of learning.

Our Philosophy

At Cadence Academy Preschool, Galleria in Dallas, we believe kids learn best through play and exploration. That’s why we make every day for your child one of laughter, discovery, and wonder!

What Makes Us Unique

In order to provide the optimal learning environment and experience, we created our own signature curriculum: Ascend Curriculum. Our special program is filled with the following key components: baby signs, fine motor skills, art, music & movement, fun with fitness, literacy skills, Spanish, math focus, science, computers & technology, social studies, handwriting without tears, and Zoo-phonics. We also incorporate a kindness lesson with a focus on character building daily in our classrooms. Our extracurricular activities include Tumble Gym, Happy feet, and Computer.

Perhaps the best part of this unique curriculum—aside from the awesome learning experience it gives kids—is how much parents get to participate in the fun! Since our preschool is conveniently located in the office towers in which many of our parents work, they can drop in often and see what their kids are up to. For those with little ones, the nursery is always available for some lunch-break snuggle time!

Cadence has been awesome at taking care of my daughter! They are so kind, caring, and loving! They always take the time to answer any questions Or concerns I have. I love how all of the rooms are open with no doorways so that the teachers and kids can interact more. I also love the updates they send me throughout the day with pictures! When my daughter gets there everyday they are always so welcoming and sweet and she has no problem leaving me because she loves Mrs. B, Casey and Marquita so much! We are moving further away so we are sad to go but I hate to leave because it truly feels like a second family for daughter with how well taken care of and loved she is!

We love Cadence! They do such a great job with my daughter and she is truly so happy to be there every day. I can’t thank the staff enough for taking such great care of her, it gives us such peace of mind, especially as working parents. They really take the time to get to know your child and are always available to questions or needs. They have really positively impacted our daughter and I can’t recommend sending your child here enough!
