Strengthening families since 1969
Licensed, Accredited, and Award-Winning Early Childhood Education
At Cornerstone, we are dedicated to supporting St. Louis-area families of all economic backgrounds with quality, comprehensive, and affordable childcare and preschool education. Our nurturing, creative early childhood program prepares children for a lifetime of positive social interaction and learning.
The Cornerstone Advantage
We believe that children learn best from active involvement with all aspects of the world. Through hands-on learning and an emphasis on natural environments, Cornerstone children build the early foundations of autonomous behavior, taking responsibility for their learning, and accepting the natural consequences of their decisions.
A nonprofit organization which offers affordable tuition for families at all income levels, Cornerstone enables children and families to experience diversity, and to embrace the understanding and acceptance that follows.
