Our New Name!

Most importantly, you can be assured that we will continue to work tirelessly to live up to the Cadence Education Promise: We provide parents with peace of mind by giving children an exceptional education every fun-filled day in a place as nurturing as home. Stay tuned for updates!
About Our School
Just one visit will show you that Lake Manassas Academy is not an ordinary preschool. Designed by early childhood educators, Lake Manassas Academy is arranged to give young children endless opportunity for positive interactions with the environment, peers, and teachers. Our preschool children explore a vast array of Learning Labs throughout the day and we take a balanced approach towards physical, cognitive, social, and emotional development that prepares young minds for success in elementary school.
Our Preschool’s Programs
- Infant & Toddler Childcare (ages 6 weeks to 24 months)
- Preschool (ages 2 to 3)
- Pre-Kindergarten (ages 4 to 5)
- Kindergarten Club (ages 4 to 5)
- Before & After School (ages 5 to 12)
- Summer Camp (ages 5 to 12)
Kind Child is a beautiful program that helps us elevate the emotional well-being of every child in our care. Kind Child is one of the core subjects in our monthly curriculum and we focus on social and emotional skills every month and positive character traits like a Positive Self-Image, Responsibility, and Thankfulness every two months. Our mission is to make kindness a habit and create a preschool environment where everyone feels welcome and at home.
Providing your child an exceptional education is an important part of our promise to you. The educational experiences that children take part in at Lake Manassas Academy are much different than what you’ll find at other preschools because our curriculum takes a skill-based approach to early education.
Our proprietary Ascend Curriculum helps children reach important developmental milestones and progressively builds valuable skill sets within 9 subjects every month. These experiences start in our Infant & Toddler program and progress all the way through Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten. Important skills are taught in every program and fine-tuned just before kindergarten in Kindergarten Club.
