Welcome to Cadence Academy Preschool in Olympia, Washington. We are conveniently located at the corner of Boulevard and Yelm Highway, shortly after the roundabout at 2222 Yelm Highway SE in Olympia, Washington. A member of the Cadence Education Family of Schools, this is the second of two locations in Yelm, Washington, serving the Lacey and Yelm Highway regions.

We tailor our small, cozy, child care center for children ages six weeks through four-years-old. Our daycare center is ideal for working families because we can provide lots of specialized, one-on-one attention to the children in our care, and our caregivers love to do it!

Our esteemed, early childhood educators are passionate about their jobs and always make your children feel welcomed and loved. Our staff’s years of experience speaks to their dedication. Each child gets to know every teacher because we are a tight-knit center, and we like to operate like one big, happy family. This approach gives young children a strong sense of comfort and security. So even though we are a “small” early childhood education center, we are “big” on love and learning!

Our Philosophy

We believe a child’s essential early years should be bright and joyful, setting them up for the rest of their lives. Cadence Academy Preschool teachers bring so much light to babies’ first years because we emphasize individualized attention with every child, making your little one feel cherished and loved while engaging in play-based education. This nurturing context allows learning to grow and creates a strong foundation for life.

What Makes Our Child Care Facility Unique

We provide a unique home-like learning environment at every step of your child’s learning. Our caring staff is dedicated, and their longevity is unique;the majority of our teachers have worked for us anywhere from the last five to 12 years.

Our child care center has two large playgrounds with covered and uncovered areas, which are private and safely located away from the street. Each play ground has age-appropriate equipment, and all children have the pleasure of exploring the outdoors. The building is secure from the outside, so you know your kids are always safe.

Our preschool’s kitchen is a small, home-style kitchen, where our cooks create healthy and delicious meals that are age-appropriate and follow USDA Menu standards.

Finally, our customized curriculum targets age-specific development for each group. Some of the programs our families say they love the most include our Kind Child Program, Kindergarten Club, and Bob’s Books Learning Program.

Our son Jameson has been attending Cadence since February and let me tell you, I have never once seen such a passionate team of people! He's our first and like any new mom, especially a first time mom, you're nervous about ever new experience with your babe. The moment we met with Heather, the director, and Madison and Hannah we felt relieved! The team as a whole makes you feel at home every time you come in and the way my son smiles at his teacher reassures me that he is very well loved here. I'm excited to continue having my son attend Cadence. I would recommend this location to anyone and everyone I know!

My daughter is currently enrolled at Cadence and we are so grateful for Mrs. Morgan, we approached the school after hours as we were looking for a good school to enroll and she was quick to answer our questions. It was clear she was locking up for the day, she explained of the small class sizes and kept saying "oh am just a cook here" I stopped her right on her tracks and reminded her she's not "just" a cook like she put it, she is a valuable member to the Cadence staff and she represented this school .our little one seems to have a fun day at school, I like how they send updates on the app, the pictures of activities the kids do, it keeps me at ease knowing we made the right decision of enrolling her here. We are also blessed by having Mrs. Samantha as our teacher, Our little one is indeed well cared for. Thankyou Mrs. Heather for also being very kind to us, prompt at responding to calls and emails and we are super grateful to be part of the Cadence family .

I’m a single Mama and I can’t say enough good things about Cadence Academy Yelm 2! I know my two babies are loved and well cared for while I’m at work. Miss Hannah in the infant room is the BEST! I really appreciate how clean it always is and the good food they feed my babies. Miss Heather, the Director is very helpful and is great about calling me if my sweeties get an ouchie. The staff truly care about the kiddos and it shows❤️ They provide fun things to do and important life skills for my littles. Thank you for the amazing service you provide for those of us who have to work.
