- General Info:
- Cornerstone is a developmental program. We recognize that children move through specific stages of development at their own individual pace. Each child has their own learning style and temperament which contributes to how they process information and retain it as knowledge. Cornerstone recognizes the way that children construct knowledge- through hands on exploration and discovery- and the fundamental significance of mastery at each developmental level. Cornerstone focuses on the process of the learning rather than the product. When the process of learning is established the product will follow. All later education will be built upon the foundation established during the preschool years. It is our goal to provide a solid foundation, strong and well grounded in developmentally appropriate practice on which to build. We believe that every child is unique and deserves individual attention, unconditional love, and acceptance. This is our primary goal. Through our enriched p reschool curriculum, we encourage the following: * Development of a healthy self concept * Appropriate social interaction through play and small group activities * Gross and fine motor skill development * Intellectual growth and academic preparation * Integration of biblical truths into every part of the child's learning experience.
- Music Together of Almaden. What is Music Together? Music together is an internationally recognized early childhood music program for infants, toddlers, preschoolers, kindergarteners, and the adults who love them. First offered to the public in 1987, it pioneered the concept of a research-based, developmentally appropriate early childhood music curriculum that strongly emphasizes and facilitates adult involvement. Music Together classes are based on the recognition that all children are musical. All children can learn to sing in tune, keep a beat, and participate with confidencein the music of our culture, provided that their early environment supports such learning. By emphasizing actual music experiences rather than concepts about music, Music Together introduces children to the pleasures of making music instead of passively receiving it from CDs or TV. Central to the Music Together approach is that young children learn best from the powerful role model of parents/caregive rs who are actively making music. The program brings families together by providing a rich musical environment in the classroom and by facilitating family participation in spontaneous musical activity at home within the context of daily life. Music Together is committed to helping families, caregivers, and early childhood professionals rediscover the pleasure and educational value of informal music experiences.

Cornerstone is a great preschool. From the logistical details such as returning phone calls promptly to the most important thing, guiding and educating my 4-year-old son, the teachers and administrators are always supportive, helpful, and energetic. I am grateful to have found this preschool for my child.Was this review helpful?Yes No|Flag Abuse
I have twin girls that started at age 3 preschool and couldn't wait for this year to begin. Cornerstone has made the learning process fun and exciting. The staff have been pleasant and have encouraged my girls in learning, creativity and how to learn and have fun at the same time. Thank you.Was this review helpful?Yes No|Flag Abuse
My first child attended the preschool school since the age of 4 and now that he is in grade school, continues with their after-school care program. The preschool did an awesome job preparing him for Kindergarten, it was a loving and nurturing environment with a strong but not over-the-top Christian message. Their summer programs are fantastic. I'll be enrolling my youngest child in preschool with them this Spring.... view moreWas this review helpful?Yes No|Flag Abuse
