Cornerstone Community School's Pre-K Program Information
The Pre-K program offered by Cornerstone Community School in Tallmadge, Ohio is structured for the four-year-old child who has turned four by September 1st or for the “young” five year old who is not quite ready for a regular Kindergarten program. All students must be potty trained and must possess developmentally appropriate life-skills to be a part of the program.
The overall goal of the Pre-K program at CCS is to provide an educational experience for four and five year old children in an environment using a hands-on, developmentally appropriate, and biblically integrated program. They will learn to have a loving appreciation and respect for others, develop self-discipline and individual responsibility, and independence in making choices and decisions. We will provide clear and consistent expectations and routines for our students that will encourage responsible student behavior.

Providing children with a structured learning environment that builds on children’s prior knowledge and interests can be accomplished by integrating instruction to maximize meaning through:

- Make choices and decisions
- Manipulate materials
- Interact with peers and adults
