Cadence Academy Preschool, Mt Pleasant

Cadence Academy Preschool® is part of the Cadence Education® Family of Schools, our trained, and caring staff takes a hands-on approach to early childhood learning. Our preschool provides quality programs for children, ages 6 weeks to 12 years.

Simply put, children learn best by doing – by exploring, playing and being “hands-on” learners. The curriculum at Gateway Academy is built for your enthusiastic child. We’re not only educators but we’re parents too. We know first-hand how much you want to stay connected with your child and what they are learning. Together, we chart a course for your child with an on-going dialogue to share ideas and progress. In short, you’ll be constantly informed about the development and progress of your child. We believe that it is a school’s responsibility to extend a child’s sense of wonder outside the classroom. Whether it is through our SMART™ Boards connecting classrooms across the country or our philanthropy projects that teach the joy of serving others, Gateway Academy is committed to the idea that community is a vital part of our lives. Keeping children safe during their day at Gateway Academy Private Preschool is of utmost importance. Our teachers establish guidelines in the classroom to involve children in a world of exploration, and for keeping them safe during that exploration. We hope that at the end of each day your child will give you a big hug and exclaim, "Guess what we did at school today!?"

Mission: Cadence Academy Preschool®, formerly Gateway Academy provides parents with peace of mind by giving children an exceptional education every fun-filled day in a place as nurturing as home.

🌈 Candy Rainbow...A lesson in dissolving. Today in 2A the children were fascinated with this science experiment. Candy is full of dye (usually), which means the combination of dye and sugar dissolves quickly in water. Skittles are particularly good for this experiment because they are colorful and dissolve even faster than other candies. When placed in a shallow pan of water, the dye quickly dissolves and starts to absorb into the water, making a colorful rainbow. The children wanted a smiley face and quickly it became a rainbow of colors. 🌈
