Cornerstone School serves children 2 ½- 5 and is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization providing play-based preschool education since 2009. Christ Church Summit founded Cornerstone School as an extension of the church community’s mission and commitment to inclusiveness, diversity, and service to families in our wider community, welcoming students from all backgrounds. Cornerstone School does not provide religious instruction. The school’s daily operations and curriculum are under the school’s executive director’s auspices with oversight from the Cornerstone School Board.
Cornerstone provides four distinct programs that meet five days per week throughout the school year, from September to mid-June. Our Foundation, Preschool, and Pre-K children participate in a 4-hour program with extended care available. Our Kindergarten program is 6 hrs. We also offer a Summer Camp Program that typically runs for nine weeks, mid-June through mid-August.
The Cornerstone School promotes the development of the whole child through a play-based curriculum that ignites curiosity, inspires creativity, and promotes character.
We are committed to strengthening families by offering opportunities for discussions, parenting and child development workshops, and social events where parents and children can connect with other members of the community. Cornerstone School promotes understanding and diversity in a community that is energized by a variety of faith, traditions, and cultures.
Cornerstone School’s vision is to be a premier early learning provider by always remaining aware and implementing best practices in early childhood education. We want to empower teachers with the ability to build children’s confidence, creativity, and critical thinking skills and promote positive outcomes.
At Cornerstone, early childhood education is more than just child’s play. Our secure facilities provide a space where children can experiment with an array of developmentally appropriate materials and activities. Bright, lively classrooms with an abundant supply of open-ended materials inspire creativity and collaboration.
The Cornerstone experience promotes the development of the whole child through an engaging curriculum that ignites curiosity, inspires creativity, and promotes character.
