Welcome to Cornerstone Campus!
At Cornerstone Campus, learning is a hands-on and creative process that engages children in direct experiences, appropriate for their stage of development. It is our goal to create a stimulating, emotionally supportive environment in which each child can grow and thrive. We encourage children to become independent learners who are confident in their abilities and capable of managing themselves.

Cornerstone Campus Preschool offers half-day programs for children ages 2.9 – 5 years old and an extended day PreK class for children 4.6 years and older. Cornerstone Campus is a school year program, which follows the calendar of the Quincy Public Schools. Our curriculum is based on the "Guidelines for Preschool Learning Experiences" developed by the Massachusetts' Dept. of Early Education and Care (EEC) http://www.eec.state.ma.us/docs1/Curriculum/20030401_Preschool_Early_Learning_Guidelines.pdf

  Program highlights:
  • Small class sizes with 1:5-7 teacher/child ratio
  • Indoor gymnasium, music room and enclosed outdoor play area
  • Nutritional snack provided by the school
  • Music instruction provided by music specialist
  • “Lunch Bunch" hour offered daily from 11:45-12:45  
Founded in 1994, we are a non-profit preschool owned by First Baptist Church of Wollaston in Quincy and governed by the Church’s Preschool Committee. We do not provide religious instruction and we welcome families of all faiths and backgrounds.
