"GROWING . . . This is what Cornerstone Academy is all about. You have entrusted your most precious gift to us. We take this seriously. Utilizing our curriculum and life skills, we strive to be an extension of your family.
SPIRITUALLY . . . Working and playing in an atmosphere of Christian love and understanding is the focus of our center. Cornerstone Academy recognizes Jesus Christ, the Son of God, and uses the Bible as a resource. Cornerstone does not promote any denomination or inflict personal beliefs on any child or his/her family.
EMOTIONALLY . . . Cornerstone Academy's objective is to help each child develop their self-esteem by growing in trust, independence, and teaching them about choices. The staff will aid each child in maturing in expression of emotional reaction thus helping them to learn to cope with anger, disappointment, and other emotions. We will enjoy creative expression through art, music, and other play activities.
INTELLECTUALLY . . . By developing skills and concepts upon which later learning will be based; by increasing attention span through creative learning; by increasing understanding of God's world through planned experiences or listening to stories, playing games, sharing favorite toys, etc. . . . and enjoying special visitors related to units of study.
PHYSICALLY . . . By developing large muscles through movement, activities indoors and outdoors; by developing small muscles through art, puzzles, blocks, writing and home-living activities.
SOCIALLY . . . By working and playing with friends of the same age; by developing attitudes of kindness, cooperation, courtesy and helpfulness towards others; by learning to relate and show respect to adults other than immediate family."
