Welcome to Cadence Academy Preschool Cooper Point in Olympia, Washington. We are conveniently located at 1006 Cooper Point Road, NW, at the corner of Cooper Point Rd, NW & Sarah Court, in Olympia, Washington. We are just two miles from the 101 and I-5 interchanges. We are two miles from downtown Olympia, and for those more local travelers, the city bus stop is across the street. We are also centrally located between South Puget Sound Community College and Evergreen State College.

Our daycare center is proud to serve the Cooper Point community and to support the local school system by preparing children for success in kindergarten and beyond. We are a small, garden-themed early childhood education center that specializes in the care of infants, toddlers, and preschoolers, and offers students the feeling of a warm, nurturing environment.

Our code-secured daycare building and homelike environment ensure children feel safe and comfortable while learning. Every classroom is designed specifically for the ages and stages within it, and our curriculum is rich with a broad range of hands-on learning experiences.

Our Philosophy

Studies show that educational, preschool programs for young children are most effective when families work closely with teachers and staff to ensure a consistent experience and supportive environment. Our goal is to make our daycare facility feel like an extension of the family to children; to be a place where they can learn and thrive both comfortably and confidently.

Daycare, Preschool & After School Programs Offered

  • Toddler Care (ages 1 to 2) – Our toddler program encourages your child’s sense of discovery and active learning.
  • Early Childhood Learning (ages 2 to 3) – An early childhood education program with an emphasis on cognitive, social and physical wellness.
  • Preschool (ages 3 to 4) – A carefully designed preschool program focused on thoroughly preparing students for Pre-Kindergarten.
  • Pre-Kindergarten (ages 4 to 5) – Our Pre-Kindergarten program combines the skills and experiences taught in earlier programs to prepare students for their transition to Kindergarten.

A Peek Inside Our Classrooms

Our preschool also offers multiple, age-appropriate learning environments, as well as an outdoor learning environment for students to enjoy.


The toddlers in the “Butterflies” room enjoy an open structure classroom, allowing each child to explore and learn about the world around them. They participate in daily art and sensory activities, singing and story time, and active outside time. The two- and three-year- old toddlers in the “Caterpillars” classroom begin to experience successes in potty training, as well. They enjoy daily art and sensory activities, music and story time, outside time, and structured play.


The preschoolers in the “Busy Bees” classroom love learning through play and a host of fun activities. Their curriculum includes a “Letters of the Month” program, which allows them to practice recognition, sounds, and writing individual letters. Their structured day allows development of independence, creativity, and imagination within a consistent schedule to promote a safe, secure atmosphere.

What Makes our Daycare Unique

At Cadence Academy Cooper Point, we are one big, happy family. The relationships between the children, staff, and parents are exemplary. Our staff works together to maintain a family-like feel of love and compassion throughout the classrooms. We also have a lot of fun!

From sensory bowling to building rocket balloons and making planets out of beans, we fill our days with unique, engaging activities. Additional events include the whole family, such as Parents’ Night Out, Family Fun Day, and Week of the Young Child. Whether you stop in on Music Monday, Taco Tuesday, Work Together Wednesday, or Thankful Thursday, you are bound to see smiling faces and hear lots of giggling.

All of our children enjoy outside play time every day. Our preschool’s large playgrounds feature age-specific areas with carefully selected equipment for toddlers and preschool children. Outside activities maximize each child’s physical and large motor development. Our preschoolers work hard each year taking care of their garden on the serenity playground.

My kiddo has been going here since she was 8 weeks old and I’ve never had to worry if she was well taken care of. She comes home everyday amped to tell me about that day’s activities and she has no hesitation matching through the door every morning. She’s learning far beyond what I ever could have taught her at home over the last three years. Thrilled to still be part of the cadence family!

I love this school. I have been taking my son here since he was 8 weeks old and he is 2 now. All the teachers have been great with him and he is always happy to see them. Ms. Marena was his butterfly teacher until he turned 2 but whenever he sees her he runs to give her a hug. It’s so nice to have somewhere you feel completely comfortable leaving your child.

The butterfly teacher, Marena was great but I can’t say much about the teachers who worked when she was off. My 15 month old child was left in poopy diapers on multiple occasions, one time for 3 1/2 hours. Came home with bruising and scratch marks that drew blood multiple times and no one had any idea how it happened. The lack of communication is disappointing. When these issues were brought to their attention, staff became rude to my husband and I. Would pull down my sons pants in 30 degree weather asking if we wanted to check his diaper and it took 10+ minutes for them to bring him out to us Because they were doing a skin check to make sure he had no bruises. He had only been attending this daycare for 2 months. I can only hope my child wasn’t treated even more poorly when we weren’t around. I did not feel comfortable leaving my child here.

My family and I love Cadence Academy Cooper Point! My daughter loves going to school every day to see “Rena” (Ms Marena). We couldn’t be happier with our daughters growth and development since she has started there :)
