Cadence Academy Preschool
in Urbandale, Iowa

There is a good reason Urbandale has repeatedly been ranked one of the best places to live in the country: it offers all the amenities of the nearby capital city of Des Moines, and at the same time, the close-knit community and strong family values of a small town.

Our residents enjoy an attractive downtown, pristine parks and trails, and superior educational institutions. Among those schools is Cadence Academy Preschool where Urbandale’s little ones spend each day smiling, laughing, and loving learning.

About Cadence Academy Preschool, Urbandale

When it comes to early childhood education, we agree with longtime family TV staple Mr. Rogers, who once said, “The first four years of life are more important in the development of a functioning human being than the first four years of college.”

Cadence Academy Preschool, Urbandale provides early child care and education for children six weeks to five-years-old.

We offer programs that gently stimulate children to reach their full potential and to approach each developmental stage with enthusiasm, persistence, and joy. We strive to promote the growth of the whole child, emotionally, physically, socially, and intellectually, which, in turn, establishes a lifelong love of learning.

Programs Offered

  • Infant Daycare (ages 6 weeks to 1 year). Our infant daycare program helps maintains the strong bonds and warmth your baby already enjoys with your family.
  • Toddler Daycare (ages 1 to 2). In this program, we encourage your toddler’s sense of discover, and active exploring and learning.
  • Early Learners (ages 2 to 3). Our early childhood learning program provides kids with the change to develop gross and fine motor skills, expanding their vocabulary, and learning through numerous discovery-related activities.
  • Preschool (ages 3 to 4). In this program, our skilled teachers prepare your child for Pre-K.
  • Pre-Kindergarten (ages 4 to 5). Our Pre-K program weaves the skills and experiences already learned in previous years to prep your child for the transition to Kindergarten.

Our Philosophy

We believe in building an all-inclusive learning environment that extends beyond the classroom, so we partner with parents to form a learning team that encourages their children’s growth and development and celebrates major milestones.

What Makes Us Unique
