Whether they are in one of our nurturing preschool classrooms or playing on one of our interactive playgrounds, our students are always learning, growing, and laughing on their way to becoming “big kids.”

Our highly qualified teaching staff provides the structure and guidance your child needs to thrive, while our caring support staff creates a warm and welcoming atmosphere where students feel at home.

What Makes Our Preschool in Temple, Texas Unique?

Many preschools and daycares say they offer credentialed teachers who receive regular training or that their childcare programs prepare students to exceed developmental expectations for kindergarten, but how do you know they are telling the truth?

When you visit our Temple preschool, you will quickly see that we practice what we preach. Our teachers are passionate about education and love working with young children. They regularly participate in professional development opportunities to ensure they are always providing the best possible care and instruction for your child.

Additionally, our Ascend Curriculum was created by early childhood education experts and is designed to help every student reach their full potential. Our curriculum goes above and beyond what is expected of preschoolers, so you can be confident your child will be more than prepared for kindergarten when they graduate from our program.

At Cadence Academy Preschool, Temple, we partner with the state of Texas by participating in the Texas Early Education Model (TEEM) Program to ensure our continued teacher training and research-backed practices and curriculum align with state standards for excellence in early education. When we say we prepare your child for success in kindergarten, we mean it.

Preparing the Little Ones for Kindergarten

We know that things look a little different this year and you may have some concerns about your child starting Kindergarten. Will they be ready? How will they do socially? Do they need to know how to read before they start school?

Our pre-K teachers are experienced professionals who are passionate about education and working with young children. They will work closely with your child to ensure they are prepared for Kindergarten in every way.

We want your child to be excited about starting pre-K and we will do everything we can to make that happen. Kindergarten readiness is so much more than just academics. It is also about social and emotional development. Our teachers will help your child build the confidence they need to succeed in school and life.
