Welcome to Cornerstone School Allen!

Cornerstone School Allen is a school of discovery…from our infants to our Private Kindergarten as well as our schoolers, our philosophy is the same…to lead our children how to live and how to be by the experience they have and by the discoveries they make.

We are Child-Centered…
Cornerstone School Allen is child-centered. Child-centeredness means being completely in tune with each child, knowing him from the inside-out. It is focusing on the child and attending to his or her needs. It is recognizing that no one child is like another. It is being a careful observer of the child, knowing where he or she is in his or her development at any given time and helping the child progress, explore, and discover.

We are Process-Oriented, not Product-Oriented…
We are not concerned with the end product – of an art project or activity. We know that it is the process that teaches the child, not the end product. In learning to read, we know children must go through many complex developmental stages before they will be physically ready to master and retain the skills that literacy demands.

We Believe Childhood is a Journey, Not a Race…
Earliest and fastest is not always best. We must take time and the responsibility to encourage all sides of a child’s development. It is through this patience, encouragement and discovery that we will foster a lifetime of excellence in our children.
