I have used this provider for more than 6 months

I have worked at cornerstone and after working for them I enrolled my child. This is the only childcare center I have ever fully trusted to not only take care of my child but that it was clean,neat, organized and the teachers have been there for years as well as the office administrators.

It's honestly hard to write a review because we did have a good experience there thanks to the amazing teacher my child had in Pre-K. She was an amazing teacher for my son and we truly miss Miss Hannah now that my son is in elementary school. The other teachers were okay, we had no real complaints. But the leadership is what upsets me the most. One of the directors constantly seems frazzled all the time and is always shoving you off like you're not important to them. The other one seems only to care about the money and keeping kids in the school. I also walked into the classroom while the director was "disciplining" the teacher in front of all the kids and a parent not once but twice! How disrespectful! And what she was disciplining the teacher for was ridiculous! Talk to any of the parents and they will tell you that teacher is the best they have ever had! They truly don't know how to run the center and it shows! The only saving grace of this school is some of the teachers there! And I feel sorry for them!
