Our son has been attending Cornerstone Montessori Academy since the age of eighteen months. Ms. Jones and her support staff are incredible. Their caring nature and dedication to teaching children independence and community with their peers are just some of the qualities we as parents love to see grow as our son approaches the age of four. The class room setting and activities are a direct example of the amount of attention and passion Ms. Jones has for educating young people. As our family has grown over the last two years Ms. Jones and her staff have been more than accommodating with the days and times our son attends. The flexibility has made it much easier as we have welcomed a new baby girl into our family. We are so excited that our daughter in the New Year will also be starting Cornerstone Montessori School. Ms. Jones comes highly recommended from our family to yours!

My son has been enrolled at Cornerstone for 7 months and although at first it was hard for him to leave the comforts of home, he now looks forward to going to school and telling me about his day. I have noticed most recently how much his language has improved by being around the other children and learning new things every day. He is interacting much more with the other children singing songs at home and bringing me home some of his artwork. The staff at Cornerstone has been fabulous. Every member of the staff has made us feel very welcome and I know my son has become very attached so some of the instructors and he learns to clean up after himself, push the chairs in after he is done and say please and thank you. . I would recommend Cornerstone to all parents looking for a school where their children can learn in an environment that allows them to excel at their own pace and instills good values.

My daughter Elizabeth attended Cornerstone Montessori for her JK and SK years. As an introductory to school, I wanted her first experience to be as inviting an experience as it could be, as she had never attended school, and was cared for by Mommy at home till the age of 4. She loved the environment at Cornerstone as it is set up so perfectly suited for young children. I was intrigued by the learning concept of Montessori and feel that my daughter’s first school experience was the best I could have wanted, just by sending her to Cornerstone. I wish it went to grade 8! The teachers are very accommodating and take extra care of each individual needs for the children. I would recommend Cornerstone Montessori to any parent wanting to explore this unique and very effective method of academics.

Erin Bell,

It gives me great pleasure to recommend Crystal Jones as an educator. I was introduced to Mrs. Jones when my son was in her class. I was immediately impressed by the warm and dignified manner in which she treated my son and the other students in the class. I was also struck by the beauty of her classroom. It is a ‘prepared environment’ par excellence. It is obvious to all who visit her class that she is gifted in her understanding of young children and their development. She also kept parents informed by posting beautiful photographs of the children at work in addition to extremely thorough reports and frequent oral updates. In addition to all of this, Mrs. Jones planned wonderful extracurricular activities for the students and found time to educate the parents about Maria Montessori and the Montessori Method. We feel extremely fortunate that our son had her as a teacher; it has been a wonderful experience for him and for us.
