About the Provider

Description:

We are excited to offer you a fun, safe, healthy and educational environment for your infant, toddler or preschooler. Our classrooms are set up to allow your child to learn and grow at their own pace and in their own way. We use a play-based curriculum that focuses on learning through play, with an emphasis on kindergarten readiness. Our lesson plans are designed around the children's interests and the activities and experiences are planned to enhance and encourage each child’s developmental areas of language, cognitive, fine motor, gross motor, self-help, and social-emotional skills. You will find that our classrooms are rich with materials and equipment for reading and writing, creativity and art, music and dance, sensory and science, math and manipulatives, dramatic play and building. Our playgrounds are equipped with awesome climbing structures, tricycles, hula hoops, sports balls and even our own garden! At Kornerstone Kids Academy, we have a family like atmosphere, and encourage family involvement throughout our day. We encourage family members to come share a meal with their child or read a story to their child's class. We have field trips and family fun nights. We pride ourselves in getting to know our children and families. We believe that family involvement and communication is just one of the “Kornerstones” in providing your child with the highest quality of care and education. We hope that you will join our family; for family is the "KORNERSTONE" of a happy and successful childhood.
