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

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.

I have been teaching at Cadence since October of 2000. I enjoy teaching children and my favorite part of the day is story time. My goal is to instill a life-long love of learning in each child.

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 strongly recommend Cadence Acedemy Preschoool at The Colony location. My daughter started attending the school when she was only four month old. She has always been happy when she comes home Christie and her staff have always been making me and my family feel welcomed and be part of the Cadence family. They called us to check on my daughter when we simply running really late in the morning. They reached out and granted us vacation credit even without us requesting. Teachers from other classes told me how much they enjoyed having my daughet in their school when I ran into them at the parking lot. They truly care about the students and their family. If you want to find a childcare center that has family-like atmosphere and treats you and your family with kindness, please give Christie a call and schedule a tour. I'm pretty sure you will feel this is the right place for your child(ren) the moment you walk in.

Mrs.BB is the absolute BEST! My son had a really hard time transitioning from being at home with mom to going to daycare and she has made it so much better for him. You can tell how much she loves her job and the kids in her class. She also helped tremendously with the potty training! I can’t say how thankful I am for her and the staff at the cadence academy. They are the sweetest people and they truly love the kids there.

My children grew up in The Peanut Gallery (now Cadence Academy). The fact that the Director has been there for 40 years is a testimony to her dedication to children and families. Many of the teachers have been there for years also, which is unheard of in most child care centers.

When my daughter and I were looking for a daycare for my grandson, this was first place that we looked at and went no further. They had everything that we were looking for. Their goal is to have every child be the best little human they can me. Their structure that allows the kids to be creative and the fun things they do allows then to explore their 5 senses. My grandson will be well prepare when he starts kindergarten in the fall. They truly love all the children and the staff is amazing. They put the kids first. I would highly recommend this school for the all children. And by the way, my grandson will not eat our mash potatoes because we do not fix them like they do at school. (I guess we will have to get their recipe) You guys are the best.
