Cadence Academy Preschool, Irving was previously known as Pierce Private Day School and changed its name to Cadence Academy in January 2019 as part of our preschool’s ongoing commitment to providing our students the best early education programs. We still offer the same faith-based Christian childcare and preschool programming that Pierce Private Day School was known for, but we now also offer Cadence Academy programs such as the Ascend Curriculum, Kind Child, and Kindergarten Club.

Our Christian & Preschool Curriculums
Our preschool teachers use both the Abeka and Ascend curriculum in our classrooms. Abeka helps us give our students an excellent education based on biblical truth. Subjects are approached from a Christian perspective and you’ll find scripture and biblical principles used to illustrate concepts within Abeka activities.
The Ascend Curriculum is a skill-based curriculum that allows us to work individually with each child to build skills across 9 different subject areas such as Literacy, Science & Sensory, Technology, Spanish, and Creative Expression. We want your child’s first learning experiences to be fun and engaging so that they develop a love of learning. The flexibility built into the Ascend Curriculum allows our teachers to modify activities to the interests and current skill level of each child.
Kind Child is an important part of our Ascend Curriculum and kindness is the foundation of our school’s culture. The goal of Kind Child is to elevate every child’s feelings of happiness, improve their well-being, and enrich their friendships. Each month, our teachers focus on developing valuable character traits such as Responsibility, Thankfulness and Sharing, Friendship, and a Positive Self-Image.
Community involvement is a big part of life at our preschool. We have celebrations and family events throughout the year such as the Harvest Festival, Thanksgiving Feast, 100th Day of School, Read Across America, and Costume Parades. Our school regularly participates in local volunteer activities and Cadence Academy recently become a nationwide partner of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, so we host a Trike-A-Thon in support of St. Jude every year.
