My child has been at Cadence Academy for 9 months and has loved every minute of it. He is always excited when we walk through the door and waves to all of the teachers (even those who aren’t in his classroom). He enjoys all of the activities they offer like painting, coloring, sticker art, dancing, imaginative play and outdoor play. I know that my child is getting love and attention every moment he spends at Cadence Academy.

We started our then 3 yr old at Cadence 9 months ago, and have had a wonderful experience. Not only are they a great daycare that focuses on learning, they are one of the very few that offer the West Des Moines preschool program in addition to their own preschool curriculum. I would highly recommend them to any family needing quality daycare / preschool.

We recently finished up a four-year relationship with Cadence, and could not have been happier. We moved out here from New Jersey in Fall 2014, not knowing anyone, and Anya, Meg and their crew could not have been more welcoming and accommodating to us. It is a very safe, loving and fun environment with professional and friendly teachers, and we were 100% satisfied with how well they prepared our “kiddos” (is that an Iowa word? πŸ˜‰) for Kindergarten. I would highly recommend Cadence Academy to anyone!

We had 2 kids at Cadence Academy and is was a wonderful, loving, educational place for them! The teachers are extremely well-educated and management was kind and thoughtful-we never worried about a thing when they were there! Even though our kids are now in school, we are still in touch with staff and both the boys, and us, made wonderful friends there! If you need somewhere for your kids, this is the place!!
