This is THE best preschool in the entire area! I searched for months for a place that wasn’t a corporate feel like most schools that are over-charging and make it feel like a business. I looked at The Children’s Courtyard, other Cadence Academy schools, Kinderccare… NONE compared to the feeling of home like this school. Mugsy and her staff are nothing less than AMAZING, and love my children like their own, putting their emotional, physical, and scholastic needs as a priority. My kids have developed SO much since being here and they are growing more each day. I will never look for a better place because it simply does not exist. These people are so dedicated to their little angels and I have NO complaints! Try them. You won’t regret it!!

My son has been going to this daycare since he was 3 months old. As a parent who did not want to leave her child with “strangers”, I have been extremely pleased over the last ten years. The love and attention the staff provide is amazing. I know he is in good hands while being cared for at Cadence Academy Preschool. He has learned so much during the years. During the school year, the school age kids are walked to and from school and assisted with homework if needed. During school breaks or summer, they are kept entertained doing crafts, games, field trips and playing. I highly recommend this daycare. The staff are amazing!

My little man has been attending Cadence for over a year now. From day one, he has felt comfortable and a part of the Cadence family. I feel like I have developed some beautiful friendships with the teachers and directors as well as other staff members. I cannot recommend Cadence Academy enough. If you decide to bring your child here, you will not be disappointed.

If there is ever an issue, they tackle it head on.

Miss Heather and Miss Cody make every effort to develop a unique and special relationship with each child.

My heart is breaking because my child has finally been accepted into the OSD preschool program after a long wait which means we will be saying goodbye to our friends at Cadence.
I wanted to share with others however how truly marvelous their academy is.

My daughter has been a part of the Cadence family for about 4 years and she loves every second of it. The teachers are very generous and very caring when it comes to their students. I would recommend this daycare to anyone, you would not be disappointed with the staff and their teachings.

Just when I thought the age of customer service was dead, we were pleasantly surprised by Cadence Academy Spring Hill. We have been loyal customers since 2014, and change can give the most stoic of individuals cause for alarm. Were it not for the personal care, attention to detail, and caring professional courtesy extended to our family by Cindy Oakley and Tonya, we would be shopping for another place for our children. It is refreshing to have a personal relationship built on trust and empathy, and we found that here. We will be customers for life, or at least until our children are grown. Cindy and Tonya alike deserve accolades for their hard work!!

My daughter has been going to gateway since she was just over a year old and is now going into kindergarten so will no longer be able to attend and we are so sad about that! I have become close with the director and her staff and we absolutely love the care they have given my oldest child. It’s a wonderful place and my daughter is absolutely a rockstar in the classroom from the attention to education that Cadence provides. It’s truly like a private school not a daycare. Highly recommend!

Cadence Academy on Main Street is an excellent place to take your children. Kadi and her staff are so welcoming and caring. We have been at this school since my now nearly 4 year old was 3 months old. I am so grateful for all of the staff every day. My two boys look forward to going to school playing with their friends and teachers everyday. This is a great place to bring your children. They are constantly asking for feedback through surveys, etc to better the center. In addition, when you have questions or concerns Kadi will take the time to address those concerns with each parent, a true “open door” policy.

I absolutely love this center my only regret is not finding it sooner. This is the FIRST daycare center my child has been to that when I pick him up from school and ask, “Hey buddy what did you do at school today,” he replies, “I learned today, mommy.” His first day he was talking about ABC Mouse. Hearing this from my 4 year old is music to my ears. I highly recommend this center.

I highly recommend Cadence Academy. The Pre-K program is wonderful and the the teachers do an amazing job at preparing students for Kindergarten and beyond. The teachers love the children as if they were their own and I can’t imagine my children attending anywhere else. The Management Team at Cadence Academy is phenomenal – they are knowledgeable, easy to speak with, and genuinely care about their staff and the children.

Cadence Academy has been so good for our boy! He is learning so many new things. The activities are wonderful. The staff is above average. Even those who don’t teach him know who he is and who we are. They are very personable and positive. The school is clean and inviting. I was a teacher and was very discerning about preschools. After our meeting with them, we immediately put the deposit down and signed him up. It has proven to be the best decision for him. In fact, when his parents were moving to a new house, the decision was made around Cadence’s location, in order to keep him there.

We love Cadence Academy Montgomery! At drop off, I feel as if I am dropping my kids with a family member. My daughter who is 3 is thriving and my son who is 10 months is too! I am beyond happy we found this home away from home!

Jennifer Leuer 5 stars - Excellent

I can’t say enough great things about this preschool. My son loves it and I feel at peace leaving my baby in their care on a daily basis. The curriculum is well planned and I can see the results in my son’s development. Thank you for all you do!

Liron 5 stars - Excellent

I could not have asked for better for my son. This was my first daycare experience and I could not have asked for a better experience. All of the teachers and staff I crossed paths with with has been amazing and friendly. The building and classrooms are always extremely clean and neat. My son has excelled far more than i ever expected coming out of this school. We’re sad to be relocating outside of their area. A huge thank you to the Cadence family!!

My two children, ages 2 and 4 have been at Cadence for the past 9 months. We have been to several child care centers, and chose Cadence because of it’s experienced and loving staff, safe environment, high staff to student ratio, and all the wonderful extracurricular activities that Cadence offers. My children’s unique learning styles are supported and enriched with stimulating learning opportunities. The teachers are respectful and teach my children to be socially appropriate. Cadence has a talented chef who prepares fresh, wholesome, and nutritionally rich meals that support the nutritional and calorie needs of my children. I have recommended Cadence to several friends, and will continue to support Gateway until my children no longer need day-care. Cadence is a wonderful child-care center, and I would not put my children in any other environment!

Picking a place to take care of your children is not an easy task! We have been so very fortunate to have Cadence taking care of our boys during the work week. The staff is like a second family to our boys and take care of each of them like they were taking care of one of their own children. Our boys love each one of the teachers they have had over the years, and that in itself speaks loudly of how great they are at Cadence! Our 7 year old flourished in Kindergarten after attending the Pre-K program at Cadence and continues to grow each school year. He now enjoys before and after school care and all of the fun activities that Cadence does during their summer camp! Our 1 year old has been coming to Cadence since he was only 8 weeks old, and having a staff that loves him and nurtures him is so wonderful. I know he is in good hands when he reaches for his teacher each morning when I drop him off. Overall, I would recommend Cadence without hesitation. They provide a nurturing and fun environment for children and have a staff that truly is wonderful at what they do!

My son started preschool at Cadence Academy a few months ago, and we both absolutely love it. The staff is all very welcoming, and truly care about my son, even the teachers who are not in his classroom on a daily bases know and care about him, and make sure to say hi and talk to me as well. I am very happy with my decision to bring my son to Cadence.

My daughter and son have been at Cadence for the past 6 and 3 years, respectively. When I moved to Ken Caryl and saw Cadence, my first thought was, “There is no way that will be a good school, it’s way too convenient!” But, I was dead wrong. What impresses me the most is the quality of the teachers. Some of them have been there for close to 10 years! I used to direct an early childhood program and know that this is a rare thing! Retaining teachers in the child care field is very challenging, but somehow Cadence Academy at Ken Caryl has managed to do just that. It is such a privilege to leave for work knowing that my children will be safe and well-cared for, while receiving high-quality early childhood education so that they are ready for Kindergarten and beyond! Thank you Cadence!

We love the daily reports! It shows us what our son is doing throughout the day and we love looking at the videos and pictures together.

Erin 5 stars - Excellent

We are very happy having our son at Cadence Academy. We love the videos and photos we get on a daily bases. It gives us peace of mind during the day and also allows us to talk to our son about what he learned during the day. There are a lot of family events that we enjoy participating in. The face painting and snow cones were a hit with our son. Staff has been nothing but great. Everyone, even the teachers that aren’t in our sons class know are son which makes us feel how much he is loved there.

Thank you for all the hard work.
