Cornerstone Lutheran Preschools Mission Statement

Cornerstone Lutheran Preschool is building God’s Kingdom by reaching beyond ourselves to bring children and families into a caring Christ-centered learning community.

Cornerstone Lutheran Preschools Philosophy

We believe children are valued members of God’s family who benefit from being respected, loved, and nurtured by caring adults in a safe, Christ-centered environment.

We believe children are most successful when an emphasis is placed on building up a child’s feelings of accomplishment, self-confidence, and self-worth.

We believe the parent is the primary teacher and we are here to assist, support and encourage them in this role.

We believe children learn best when given the opportunity to actively explore, create, question, and interact with the world around them through large blocks of uninterrupted play.

We believe children need many and varied experiences throughout the day to practice developing skills, including independent, in small groups, during guided activities and through free choice opportunities.

We believe that future school success depends on a student’s early childhood experiences. Our program is designed with the physical, academic, social, emotional and spiritual aspects of development in mind. Specifically, we use Jesus’ early life as the model for our program: And Jesus increased in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and man. Luke 2:52 (ESV)

PHYSICALLY – Jesus increased in stature. We offer activities designed to develop large and fine motor skills, along with opportunities to understand the importance of good physical health.

ACADEMICALLY – Jesus increased in wisdom. We provide developmentally appropriate academic experiences that include language and literacy, mathematics, science, social studies, art, and faith concepts.

SPIRITUALLY – Jesus was loved by God. We believe that Jesus is our Savior and the only way to Heaven (Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6) We believe that God created us, loves us, and has a plan for our lives. This is taught through weekly chapel time, daily Bible stories, and activities that reinforce Bible lessons.

SOCIALLY/EMOTIONALLY– Jesus loves all people. We promote social/emotional growth through ​a variety of interactions with other children and adults. Within this community experience, we recognize the unique interests and abilities of each child.
