Cornerstone Christian School is committed to excellence starting with our Preschool & Child Care program. We provide thematic units that engage, integrate, and teach across all curricular areas. With an experienced and caring staff, along with low teacher to child ratios, we want each child and family to have the best Preschool experience possible!


We have created a beautiful, homelike environment for learning, socialization, character building and most importantly spiritual growth. With a newly remodeled Preschool classroom and Welcome Center, our goal is to make learning exciting and fun. Our Preschool staff has developed a curriculum that is an active balance of activities, teacher directed and child initiated. 

We understand what children at this age level love and that they are excited to learn, and this is reflected in our program. Learning in the classroom is fun and exciting through phonics, hands-on math, writing skills, science, Spanish, art, music, and play. Character development is taught through Bible stories and Bible verses as well as through individual assessment. Each child works at his/her own pace and ability. As a staff we are actively involved in each child’s social and character development, as we focus on each individual’s gifts and talents.

Our goal is to prepare a child for kindergarten by having taught them the following skills: letter recognition, basic phonics and letter writing, counting 0-100, number recognition 1-20, basic math skills, shapes, colors, and patterning. We also work on teaching them to follow directions, listening skills, playing with other children, communication skills, cleanliness, safety, and healthy eating habits.

Cornerstone Christian Preschool is currently Level 2 in Colorado Shines, and has recently applied for an upgrade.
