Cornerstone centers celebrate end of summer

Cornerstone’s four centers gathered their summer campers from ages 5 to 12 to celebrate the end of summer in style at Cornerstone Child Development Center-Main on Webb Road in Salisbury.
They jumped in bouncy houses, hopped in sack races and giggled under the 2,500 gallons of water cascading in the air as music from the giant speaker offered a fitting backdrop. A few squealed with delight as they managed to pull their teachers under the spray, wetting them from top to bottom. We discovered that 2,500 gallons of water is equivalent to 63 baths or 250 showers.
A great big thanks to Bostian Heights Fire Department’s Jarett Caskey and Mike Zimmerman, who were the highlight of the day for the second year in a row. The afternoon ended with a nutritious lunch, popcorn and a movie in Planet Kidz Studio Allstar. Who would have known eating healthy could be so much fun. The day’s excitement still resonated with the tired but happy children as they piled on their buses to return to their facilities.
Although summer is over and school has begun, Cornerstone Child Development Centers have introduced Spanish and American Sign Language in the classrooms. The new curriculum is intended to continue the theme of diversity in the classroom. All ages from one year to school age will be immersed in understanding other cultures as well as their own community and language.
