About Our Daycare and Preschool in The Colony, TX

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 skills-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. If you are looking for the best preschool in The Colony, look no further!

Our preschool programs are proven to place young children on the fast track to academic success. 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. That’s why a skills-based education is so important.

Our teaching staff has the training and experience necessary to provide your child with a well-rounded education.

We also believe that a strong emotional foundation is a key to success in life. In our daycare and preschool center in The Colony, we foster a loving and caring environment where students feel comfortable exploring new things and asking questions. We work hard to create positive relationships with each and every child in our care. Our loving staff is dedicating to providing nurturing and educational childcare in The Colony.

Will Your Child be Ready for Kindergarten?

Young children have an endless capacity to learn! At Cadence Academy’s The Colony school, we believe that the most impactful way for young children to develop skills 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 with a flexible educational framework that builds valuable sets of skills over time. We continually work with our students to reach important developmental milestones within nine 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 styles of each student so that these first educational experiences are engaging and fun!

Kind Child Program

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 to our daycare and preschool in The Colony, TX 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 have been with Cadence for 24 years. I graduated from Little Elm High School. I enjoy working, playing, and teaching children new things like writing their names, colors, letters, and numbers. I love seeing children smile at me. It just warms my heart. It makes my day a great day getting hugs from my children.

My son needed childcare for the summer and after having him in another daycare in The Colony where he screamed and cried every day I took him, I found Cadence Academy. A clean fresh light feeling when you walk in. All the teachers are so welcoming! They are quick to make sure your child is cared for. Not only basic needs, but emotional as well. My child got to learn, play, go on field trips, and eat REALLY well! He loved his teachers and his friends. They also work with you financially and aren’t just a money grabbing operation. They were amazing and I’d trust them with my children time and time again.

We are very very very pleased with Cadence Preschool Academy! We looked for a while for a good school and toured multiple in The Colony area. This school has surpassed our expectations! Not only do both my kids (4yrs and 10mo) love the school but they are learning so much! All of the teachers are the sweetest. It is more like a family than a school. I highly recommend this preschool! You will not regret the decision! Shout out to all the teachers! My family loves you!
