About Our Daycare and Preschool Center 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.

Is Your Child 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

Kind Child Program Logo

Kind 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 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 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.

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 staff 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 asked for. Her work ethic is excellent and just want parents want to make sure their child or children are getting the very best. The staff is prepared and educated to give your child a safe and loving experience. Cadence has worked hard to make sure that your child is educated and ready for elementary school as well. If you are searching for the best in town search no more. Give Christie a call and you will not be disappointed

I can’t say enough great things about this school! Our son has been enrolled since he was 3 months old, and if we weren’t moving he would never leave! He’s received amazing care from the infant room, toddler room, and now the early preschool room. All the teachers are caring, kind and treat him like their own! The staff are all warm and welcoming and never fail to keep to you updated on what’s going on with your child. The app they use throughout the day is fantastic too- we get to see pictures of what the class is up to, what they’re eating, and what games they play, as well as what they’re learning. This school has truly been a second home for our son, and if you’re looking for top notch child care from a group of women who will embrace you as an extension of your family- look no further! They take the smallest steps to make sure your child’s experience (and yours as the parents!) is amazing- providing nutritious meals and snacks, as well as weekly menus so you know what they’re eating. Thank you for everything Cadence Academy- I will always recommend you to parents looking for childcare!

We love it here. The teachers and staff are fantastic and my son loves attending so much that when I drop him off he practically shoves me out the door.
