Cobblestone, founded in 1983, offers a full-day program and after-school care for children between the ages of 4 and 14, grades pre-kindergarten through eighth.
Cobblestone School provides a supportive, nurturing environment, responsive to children's social, intellectual, physical, aesthetic and ethical development.
The interdisciplinary curriculum integrates academic and personal experience to promote a desire to learn, a respect for and appreciation of diversity, an understanding of the democratic process, and a strong sense of community.
