Cornerstone Christian Preschool

Open registration for the Fall of 2021 begins on March 1, 2021.

Our objective is to provide a comprehensive early childhood education with an emphasis on Christian values to children and families living in and around the Oregon City area.

Our Program

The curriculum used at Cornerstone Christian Preschool will reflect our values embracing unconditional love, respect, and social justice for all human life.

A Christian atmosphere will be created through prayer and acts of caring. Children will learn to explore their own creativity and our world, through art, dance, music, science, and creative play. All while preparing them for kindergarten by learning letter’s and sounds, combining those sounds to make words. Counting, recognizing, and writing numbers. Learning about a number line and doing simple math plus much, much more.

We feel every child learns at their own pace, and each child is encouraged and loved through their own process.

When I play, I learn all the things I need to know before I go to school:

  • that the teacher helps you and is nice;
  • that children are friends;
  • that we have to help each other;
  • that books will open up a whole new world;
  • that I like learning and going to school – a feeling worth having throughout life.

… And I learn:

  • that I am me;
  • that I am wonderfully made;
  • that a small child who is valued, cherished and loved counts in the world;
  • that Jesus loves me and I am God’s child!
