"When I chose Cornerstone School, I must have looked at every school in New Jersey and we chose to live in the Summit because of my meeting with Michele and because of my belief in the values that Cornerstone School have. I take my kids to Cornerstone School because it’s a safe and happy environment for them to go to." -Becky S.

Cornerstone School's Creative Kids

There is a garden in every childhood, an enchanted place where colors are brighter, the air softer, and the morning more fragrant than ever again.

- Elizabeth Lawrence

Childhood is such an exciting time, filled with wonder and the joy of discovery. At Cornerstone, children are encouraged to explore the world around them under the loving guidance of trained teachers.

Open-ended materials inspire creativity and collaboration. A curriculum enriched by art and music ignites a deepening awareness of self and others in the community.
