About Cadence Academy Preschool in Tumwater, WA

Welcome to Cadence Academy Preschool, Tumwater! We love that children are full of wonder and naturally want to explore the world around them.

Ascend Curriculum LogoOur teachers channel this youthful energy into fun educational experiences thanks to the flexibility built into our Ascend Curriculum. We believe the most impactful way to support the development of academic skill is to offer a variety of activities and give children an appropriate level of control over their own learning process. Our teachers are also encouraged to modify activities to match the needs, interests, and current skill level of each student so everyone feels engaged and supported.

Our Preschool’s Programs

A Peek Inside Our Classrooms

Infants and Toddlers

Our teachers show our littlest students how to communicate using Baby Signs, which creates an excellent opportunity for you and your child to communicate before they can express themselves verbally.


Our preschoolers make significant strides towards kindergarten readiness in our preschool program. They learn a different letter each week, participate in science and math activities daily, practice social skills both inside the classroom and on the playground, and explore different kinds of hands-on sensory art. We also have small group time where we read books, sing songs, and work on projects together.

Assistant Director

I have been with Cadence Academy Preschool, Tumwater since 2022 as a teacher in the infant room. I have my bachelor’s degree in early education from San Diego State University. I was promoted to Assistant Director and look forward to working with our staff and families closely as well as all that come to join our facility.

I am a wife and mom of 3 boys. We all enjoy sports and have recently embraced our outdoorsy side since arriving in the PNW. We love going fishing, crabbing, and clam digging so far. San Diego will forever be home to us and will have a special place in our heart, but we are truly enjoying our time here in Washington and can’t wait to explore more of what it has to offer.

Preparing Your Child To THRIVE

Your child is unique, and we are happy to provide an educational, fun, and nurturing environment where each child can develop and thrive in order to build a bright future with unlimited possibilities.
