Welcome to Cadence Academy Preschool, Yelm Highway! We offer a nurturing homelike environment your family will love and a skill-based curriculum that prepares young mind for future academic success. If you’re looking for nurturing daycare for your little one or a preschool program that will make the most of your child’s first educational experiences, you’ve come to the right place.

Our Preschool’s Programs:

Ascend Curriculum

Young children learn best when they are active and engaged! The Ascend Curriculum encourages preschool children to participate in a number of ways. As one teacher works closely with a small group of  students, other students will be engaging in hands-on learning with peers at various learning centers throughout the classroom. This approach creates more personalized interactions between teachers and students and gives children space to take responsibility for their own learning.

Our teachers help our students develop new skills in 9 different learning domains every month. Skills are often taught at a challenging pace, but our teachers are encouraged to modify activities to match the needs and interests of each child. We want your child’s first educational experiences to supportive, challenging, and fun so they develop important skill sets and a love of learning!

Kind Child

Kind Child is a beautiful part of our monthly curriculum that focuses on the social and emotional needs of our children. We encourage our students to adopt valuable character traits like a Positive Self-Image, Responsibility, Empathy, and Thankfulness and work on new emotional skills every month. Our mission is to elevate the emotional well-being of every child in our care and promote positive friendships!

As Director, I look forward to working closely with parents to make our school an educational, loving environment for children to learn and grow. I previously worked for Cadence Academy from 2004 to 2013 starting as a Cook, then moved into teaching as a 2 Year Old Teacher, and was later promoted to Director. I am delighted to be back!

I was born and raised on Long Island New York and moved to Washington State in 1994. I am the proud mother of three young men ranging from 19 to 28.

I cannot say enough positive things about cadence academy! My daughter has been coming here for about a year and for a first time working mom, this center has been the best! My daughter loves seeing Hannah and Marie! The entire staff is supportive and kind and the best place I could have chosen to care for my daughter.

Our son started at Cadence when he was about 7 months old and as a new parent I was very nervous to leave him in the care of someone else. But it didn't take long to see that my son loved going to daycare and every morning when we reached the parking lot he would get so excited to be at daycare! My son is now 3 and all of the teachers he's had at cadence have been wonderful and he always looks forward to seeing his friends! It also seems that every day his vocabulary is expanding and he's learned something new! Our daughter, who is almost one, started at Cadence when she was four months old and absolutely loves it! She gets excited every morning when I drop her off and I am always impressed by how much she has already learned! Because of our son's positive experience and how much he has enjoyed Cadence we weren't even worried about our daughter starting daycare. All of the staff at cadence are welcoming, loving, and attentative! I am so thankful that we have found such a warm, loving, and engaging place for our kids to learn and grow! And I'm thankful to Cadence and their staff for their continued commitment to providing quality care for our kids despite all the unforseen challenges of the pandemic. I cannot recommend them enough!
