Cadence Academy Preschool, Grand Prairie was originally founded as Crayon Campus in February 1994. We moved to our present location near Robinson Road and West Chester Parkway in September 1999 and changed our name to Cadence Academy Preschool, Grand Prairie in January 2019. We continue to offer the same quality faith-based daycare and preschool programs that Crayon Campus was known for. Our preschool students attend chapel every Friday and we have Vacation Bible School in the summer.

Our Programs

Our Christian & Preschool Curriculums

Abeka Curriculum LogoAt Cadence Academy Preschool, Grand Prairie, we are both Christian and traditional in our approach to education and our preschool utilizes both the Abeka and Ascend Curriculums. Abeka is dedicated to providing quality education from a Christian perspective. Abeka publications are built upon the firm foundation of scriptural truth and are written by Christian scholars who are well grounded in the practical aspects of teaching.

Ascend Curriculum LogoThe Ascend Curriculum utilizes a skill-based approach to early childhood education, which allows us to continually take steps in the emotional, social, creative, physical, and cognitive development of each child in our care. Every month, our teachers introduce new skills across nine different learning areas such as Mathematics, Literacy, Cultural Understanding, Physical Fitness, and Kind Child. Activities within the Ascend Curriculum can be modified to the current skill level and interests of each student so that each child feels engaged, challenged, and supported.

Special Activities

To further enrich your child’s preschool experience, we are pleased to offer a number of extra-curricular activities such as Stretch-N-Grow, Little Music Maker, Cyber 4 Kids Computer Class, and JD Mobile Gymnastics.

Family Involvement

We believe preschool children thrive when there is a strong partnership between school and home. We have an open door policy at our childcare center and encourage our parents to visit their children at any time. Our school has many exciting activities and events for our children and families throughout the year so keep an eye out for events such as Trunk or Treat, Fall Fest, Easter Egg Hunt, Muffins for Mommy, and Donuts for Daddy.

Tasha Timmins

Tasha Timmins

Director

I have begun my studies in nursing and took some child psychology courses as well as early childhood courses. I also completed my CDA course and took several management courses as well. I have been employed at this school for eleven years. I have taught the pre-school classes, pre-k, and summer camp programs. I can honestly say my favorite was pre-k.

I was given the opportunity to become the Assistant and maintained that title for two years before the opportunity presented itself to become the Director. When I became the Director, I wanted to ensure that I created an environment among the staff that was positive and nurturing. I wanted to challenge them to not just be happy with the minimum, but push them to be their maximum self, not only for them, but for their students. The teachers are just that, teachers so I wanted them to act and feel as such. We don’t just sit around and play all day, we teach not only academics but what it means to care about people and be a good person.

I want our parents to know, feel, and believe that their presence of joining our family is of great value to us and they will be provided with the utmost care and respect as well as an excellent education.

My Faith is very important to me so the fact I am a part of a Faith based program means the world to me. Our parents love that we are a Faith based school that provides Chapel on Fridays. I have been married for twelve years to my amazing husband Brandon. We have three kids, Simone, Braylen, and Simorah, that keep us super busy between sports and school activities. In my spare time I love to travel, shop, eat….I love food and sleep! I look forward to being able to continue to have long lasting relationships with our current families as well as potential families. Cadence Academy Preschool is full of wonderful teachers and I am proud to say this is our School!

Assistant Director

I’ve had the privilege of being a part of the Cadence Academy family since 2014. I was in the medical field for 15 years when I decided to pursue my first passion, which is teaching children. God placed me here at Cadence Academy, where I have been very happy and fortunate to work with many different age groups. I have a great passion for children and their families and I am committed to providing your child with a loving and developmentally sound foundation for a lifetime of learning.

Perfect place to take your children! This is coming from an overly protective mother!! I wouldn’t allow my children to go elsewhere. Cameras are available if you need to check in on your little ones. Friendly staff, communicating with them is no problem at all!

Wonderful, Friendly Staff and a Great Atmosphere for a child to grow and develop. As the father of a Pre-K student, my child enjoys her teacher and the different items that they learn each day and always looks forward to going. Would highly recommend this place to anyone

Our child was enrolled at another facility for THREE DAYS and was not happy or comfortable. We did not receive warm reception from her assigned class teacher and she was not being included when we would view her class on the camera. Our child did not look forward to going to school which was not like her and she would be patiently waiting for us to pick her up. Long story short, we regretted not enrolling her at Cadence Academy which was the original plan. After our child began attending Cadence it was a welcomed breath of fresh air!!! She was already looking forward to going because she remembered her teacher, Ms. Bethany, and the director, Ms. Tasha, from our visit during the summer. She enjoys going to school again, she loves her time there, and she has even lets me know on occasion that I picked her up too early. She receives a warm and welcoming greeting upon arrival and well wishes upon pick up. She loves to tell me about her day and I LOVE receiving the daily reports. I also love to see that she is working on more than just coloring. To top it off, we are thankful that she is able to pray before meals. We are truly grateful for being able to have a peace of mind while our child is in the care of the staff at Cadence. Thank you Ms. Tasha, Christina, Bethany, Jasmine, Niki, Dot and all the other staff at Cadence Academy!!!!
