We have asked our parents to express how they feel about CMCA. Below you will hear and read directly from the individuals who have entrusted us with their most precious possession, their children.
PARENT OF A PRIMARY STUDENT
"Finding CMCA was a God-send! We had looked at every preschool in Benton and still couldn't find a place we were comfortable with. We had started to consider keeping him home for another year, until I booked a visit here. Our son took to Mrs. Shannon immediately and we knew the minute we walked in that we had found the right place! He is so excited to get to school in the mornings and by the second week he knew all of his shapes and was even singing the alphabet.
Each week I look forward to seeing his love for learning and his love for God grow! Because of Mrs. Shannon and CMCA, he comes home excited everyday and is always looking forward to the next. I recommend CMCA a thousand times over! I am so blessed to have my son spend his days here."
We enrolled Beckam in Cornerstone Christian Montessori school in August 2018 when they first opened. We had visited several other daycares in the community and just never felt as though they were the right place or fit for him. I had heard another parent talking about Mrs. Shannon’s school and then realizing she was also my daughter’s 1st grade teacher several years before when she taught in public schools. She was my daughter’s favorite teacher, always so soft spoken, motivating and kind to her students. I knew I had to call her to see if we could meet and possibly sign Beckam up. We walked in and immediately felt a since if peace, comfort, love, and the presence of God there and knew that it was exactly where we needed to be. There are so many things that we love about Mrs. Shannon and her program. The updates and pictures throughout the day. The fact that Beckam loves to go to school and will even wake up on weekends asking if he can go to school. He comes home singing worship songs he has learned at school and so eager to show and tell us all that he has done each day with numbers and letters. God has done and is still doing so many amazing things with this school and we are so thankful we are part of this organization.

CMCA has been such a blessing and answer to prayer! We have our 6 month old daughter there and they have gone above and beyond to love on her and make leaving her for the day so much easier. Shannon and Stephen are phenomenal, but they have also hired staff that shares the same mission and values as they do. Our family is grateful God brought us to this school and we can't wait to continue learning, growing, and loving both in God's word and in our knowledge there.
