Our Philosophy

At Cadence Academy Preschool, Ashworth in West Des Moines, we believe that if children are to soar to great heights of scholastic excellence, then they need a strong network of adults to encourage and support them. Our child care and preschool center partners with parents and the community to foster an environment of exploration, discovery, and learning that extends far beyond the classroom.

What Makes Us Unique

One of the ways we include families and the community in our children’s educational journey is by holding events throughout the year. Families love participating in our Family Picnic in August and celebrations during April for the Month of the Young Child. These fun gatherings provide great opportunities for children to show their families what they are learning, and for parents, teachers, and staff to get to know each another better.

At Cadence Academy Preschool, Ashworth, we lead by example, setting and meeting high standards for our preschool and early learning programs. We hold accreditation from the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), as well as a 5-Star Rating on Iowa’s Quality Rating system. We are also proud to be a Community Partner with the West Des Moines School District and offer two sections of the Statewide Voluntary Preschool Program at our school. Parents can rest assured their children are receiving a high-quality early education at our preschool.
