CornerStone Christian Tykes believes in the development of the whole child. We work hard to prepare each child socially, emotionally, academically and spiritually through a hands-on and interactive learning environment. Our emerging curriculum is designed to create a “love for learning” in each child while preparing students for CornerStone Christian Tykes Preschool . We achieve these goals by surpassing Licensing standards in Early Childhood Education (ECE). We set the bar high and strive to meet every standard of excellence.
Our preschool rated Top 1% of ALL early childhood education centers in Nevada CornerStone Christian Tykes Preschool is now the ONLY 5 Star rated private christian preschool in Nevada! A 5 Star recognition by QRIS represents the HIGHEST QUALITY early learning environment. Learn more about QRIS at the following link: http://www.nvsilverstatestars.org/nevada-qris
What makes Tykes different from other schools? Few ECE programs in Nevada have received accreditation from the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), which promotes excellence and stringently awards accreditation to only the most high quality schools that are able to meet and exceed strict criteria set to insure the growth, exploration and success of young learners. Decades of research have shown that nearly 90% of brain development occurs in the first five years of life. A high quality ECE program can not only optimize those years, but can also predict school success down the road.
QRIS uses a rigorous criteria and comprehensive evaluation process to determine program quality. This includes an in-depth assessment to determine if we are using best practices in adult child interaction, encouraging parents to play an active role, and the level of training, accreditation and support provided to our staff.
CornerStone Christian Tykes Preschool is voted The Best of Las Vegas Gold Medalist for both 2018 & 2019! We are the FIRST preschool to have EVER earned this from the community! For that, we thank YOU.
Our teacher to child ratio and group sizes are smaller than the State of Nevada Licensing requires. With at least two teachers in every classroom, we are able to foster closer relationships with the students. More individual attention promotes collaboration, whether it’s through small groups or individual learning sessions which caters to differentiated instruction. Discipline is based on positive guidance, which teaches children conflict resolution skills and the love and logic’ approach of natural consequences.
At CornerStone, our philosophy of teaching to the whole child is often experienced beyond the walls of our school. Field trips, special guests, community outreach and enrichment programs engage our students creating an awareness of the world around them. It is our hope that through standards of excellence and spiritual exposure, our students will develop into fully capable, productive and creative citizens.
CornerStone is family. We believe in an open interactive dialogue with the families we serve. Through daily and weekly communication, we aim to involve parents in the academic journey of their children. We provide fellowship, family events, volunteer opportunities and school performances to create a family-based culture. Our goal is to provide a campus where our parents, teachers and administrators partner together to ensure the success of each student we serve.
We are proud of the community we’ve built and we know you will love it too! Please contact us book a tour of our campus, I look forward to hearing from you!
