Early Childhood

The Early Childhood Program at The Cornerstone School is designed to be a safe “home away from home”.

A warm and welcoming community where young students play, learn, and enjoy developmentally appropriate experiences under the guidance of nurturing and talented faculty. Emphasis is placed on a smooth transition from home to school and from one year to the next so that each child’s school experience is positive, enjoyable, and rewarding.

Our comprehensive program educates the whole child. Small class ratios and a teacher and a teacher assistant in each classroom enable faculty members to create close, meaningful relationships with each student. Teachers differentiate instruction to meet individual student needs and craft integrated units of study that capture the imaginations of their students and allow them to make connections across disciplines. Students are engaged in rich and varied activities designed to provide the foundation for academic and social success.

Each child is respected, supported, and challenged, and knowing the families of our students is as important as knowing their children. In order to develop and maintain the all-important parent-school partnership, daily communication at drop-off or-pick up, Class Dojo posts, and pictures of students provide each family with a window into their child’s experience.

Spanish, Music, and information technology experts support and enrich children’s learning experiences, opening doors for students to discover new ways of making sense of our world.
