Welcome to Cadence Academy Preschool, Yelm Highway! We are conveniently located across the street from Indian Summer Golf & Country Club at the corner of Normandy Drive and Yelm Highway in Olympia, Washington.

A member of the Cadence Education Family of Schools, we offer a developmentally directed curriculum and a broad range of preschool and daycare programs for ages 6 weeks to 10 years old. Our preschool center is a spacious, seven-room facility, encompassed by a beautifully landscaped exterior. Whether inside in our colorful, interactive classrooms or outside enjoying age-appropriate toys and equipment on our playgrounds, students feel at home at Cadence Academy Preschool.

Safety and security is a central area of focus at our daycare center. Our facility has security code access at the front door and security cameras in each of our classrooms. We strive to provide a safe, clean, and caring learning center where parents can feel comfortable knowing that their children are having fun while receiving an exceptional education.

Our Educational Philosophy

We believe that children learn best when they are active and engaged. We encourage developmental growth through fun, educational activities, nurturing teachers, and stimulating environments. Each month, teachers focus on developing new skills in 9 different learning domains. These skills are taught at a challenging pace, but activities can be modified to provide more challenge or more support based on each child’s current level of skill.

What Makes Our Preschool Unique?

Not only does our private preschool have the perfect campus for fun and learning, our caring, well-trained staff and signature curriculum are also unparalleled. Our diverse and knowledgeable staff cares for and handles your child’s every need.

Our preschool and early child care center offers a well-rounded curriculum that features Lego Engineering, Bob’s Books, Hands-On Science, Fun With Fitness, and Baby Signs, an innovative technique to help infants and toddlers communicate effectively before their spoken vocabulary is fully developed.
