In a classroom environment set up to allow for exploration, students are given a Montessori-driven foundation in independence, respectful relationships and physical development through hands-on materials. Our highly-trained teachers observe the children, introducing them to developmentally challenging activities in practical life skills, sensorial, language, mathematics, cultural studies and social activities. These formative years are crucial in setting the stage for years to come.
For ages 18 months through 6 years, families can choose either a three-, four- or five-day program. (For the three- and four-day program, families may select which days they send their children.) All programs are available either as a Morning Program (8:30 AM–12:30 PM) or an All-Day Program (8:30 AM– 3:00 PM).
Cornerspring offers an all-day (8:30 AM-3:00 PM) Kindergarten program.
The Montessori approach assists the child in acquiring the social skills and self-confidence needed to fulfill his or her own potential. In partnership with their teachers, students create a written study plan and are supported in planning and completing work that builds on interests, develops understanding, nurtures enthusiasm and fits individual needs.
Cornerspring offers a Lower Elementary Program for children ages 6-9 and an Upper Elementary Program for children ages 9-12. Both programs are five days a week from 8:30 AM-3:00 PM.
Cornerspring offers before care services for students from 7:30-8:30 AM, and after care services from 3-5:30 PM. Both are offered Monday-Friday during the school year*. These services are open to Cornerspring and public school students; students at CASS and Drinkwater schools are bused to and from their local schools.
*Early care may also be available during summer camp depending on enrollment.
Cornerspring’s summer programs vary from year to year. Summer programs are designed to accept children in three age groups: 18 months-3 years, 3-6 years, and 6-12 years. Each session is based on a specific theme and incorporate art, science, games, and enrichment activities; camps sometimes include a field trip or visit from an educator in the field.
Information about our summer program is made available the first of April of each year. Cornerspring reserves the right to cancel any session if the minimum needed for enrollment is not met.
