The staff at Cadence Academy Preschool, The Colony wants our young students to feel at home every time they walk through the doors of our preschool. We take a skill-based approach to early childhood education and help families make the most of these amazing early years by attending to the social, emotional, physical, and intellectual needs of each child in our care.

Our school was previously a Peanut Gallery location. We changed our name from The Peanut Gallery, The Colony to Cadence Academy Preschool, The Colony in September 2019.

Our preschool programs are proven to place young children on the fast track to academic success, but when children enter kindergarten, it isn’t necessary for them to know the names of all the dinosaurs or planets. What’s important is that they know how to cut with scissors, recognize letter shapes, follow directions, effectively communicate their feelings, complete simple math problems, and play well with their peers.

Is Your Child Ready for Kindergarten?

Young children have an endless capacity to learn! At Cadence Academy, we believe that the most impactful way for young children to develop skill is to give them some control over their learning process. We offer our preschool students a variety of playful educational activities and encourage them to select what they want to participate in.

Ascend Curriculum LogoOur Ascend Curriculum provides our teachers a flexible educational framework that builds valuable sets of skills over time. We continually work with our students to reach important developmental milestones within 9 different subjects, but our goal is to recognize where each child is on a particular skill and then take them to the next step without comparing them to their peers. Teachers are encouraged to modify our activities to match the interests and learning style of each student so that these first educational experiences are engaging and fun!

Kind Child

Kind Child Program LogoKind Child is a proprietary program that focuses on the social and emotional well-being of our students. We want every child to feel welcome and valued at our preschool, so Kind Child has become a regular subject within our monthly curriculum. We encourage our students to adopt important character traits such as a Positive Self-Image, Responsibility, and Thankfulness and we introduce new social skills every month.

We love attending to the emotional well-being of every child in our care and seeing positive friendships blossom all over our school. Schedule a visit so that you can see the impact of Kind Child for yourself!

School Director

I have been a Director with our company since 1982. I enjoy being the leader of our school and working alongside our great Assistant Director. We have many dedicated teachers with lots of longevity that have spent their time loving, caring, and educating children in our community.

Our school has been a huge part of this community and I have gotten to see many children grow up that now bring their own children to our center. It is very rewarding to be able to take care of several generations within the same family.

I have been married to my wonderful husband since 1992 and I have two grown sons and two awesome grandsons. In my free time I enjoy spending time outdoors with my family and my dogs. My hobby is traveling and spending time with friends.

Before coming to Cadence Academy, I worked as a dental assistant. I started working at Cadence when my daughter was born. I enjoy working with and teaching children many new things and see them grow on a daily basis and develop their own unique personalities. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your child’s lives and to help your child shine and grow into a special individual.

I would give this place six stars if I could. Our son has been going there since he was 3 months old, and we all LOVE it. He comes home with a smile every day, the staff comes up with such creative ways of educating and entertaining the kids while they're there, and our son is learning all sort of new stuff daily. Can't say enough about these ladies and this amazing school!!!

I highly recommend Cadence Academy in The Colony. They offer the best childcare in town. The Director has been at this school serving her community for 39 years. Christie and her administrative team work very hard to ensure your child has a safe and loving environment not to mention the cleanest school I have ever visited. I began my childcare journey at this location and I am very happy that I did because Christie was the best mentor I could have had. Her work ethic is excellent and she does her very best to give each child and family just want they want. The staff is prepared and educated to give your child a safe and loving experience. Cadence has worked hard to make sure that you child is educated and ready for elementary school. If you are searching for the best in The Colony search no more. Give Christie a call and you will not be disappointed.
