Cornerstone Montessori School is an educational and childcare environment. We aim to encourage each child to develop a positive attitude toward learning using the Montessori philosophy.

Our Beginning


Cornerstone Montessori School is the culmination of over 25 years of joy, exploration, and community. Founder and Directress, Claudia Alvarez, has experienced countless moments of shared learning with children using the Montessori method. Passionate about early childhood education, she has continuously strived to foster independence, curiosity, and creativity in each child. Cornerstone Montessori School promises an enriching environment for your child that will promote developmentally-appropriate learning and advancement.

“Education is a natural process carried out by the child and is not acquired by listening to words but by experiences in the environment.”

— Maria Montessori

Students at Cornerstone Montessori School develop self discipline through guidance of the teachers, who are called guides. Guides help the children explore their freedom within the limits of the classroom environment.
