The non-profit Cornerstone Educational Preschool's innovative approach to early education is formulated to reach and nurture children diagnosed under the Autism Spectrum.

More than 100,000 children in the U.S. are receiving services for Autism, a type of brain processing that begins in early childhood and persists throughout adulthood.  Cornerstone Educational Preschool originated on the island of O‘ahu and has mainstreamed several children with Autism into successful, productive educational environments.

Cornerstone is committed to fostering and supporting learning styles, which are important components to the identity of a student and as an individual. Dr. Jennifer Dustow, the founder of the non-profit Cornerstone Educational Preschool focuses on addressing the unique needs of these children with Autism by seeing the child first.

By utilizing and building on a student’s strengths, the Cornerstone team provides the gateway for academic learning while at the same time exposing the child to social abilities that they do not realize they have hidden deep within. Therefore, the fostering a core belief through an educational philosophy that teaching real skills, is what Cornerstone offers with it's combined custom-built curriculum which focuses primarily on a balancing between sensory, academic and real life skills.             

Dr. Jennifer Dustow believes each child has varied educational and sensory needs and those needs can be addressed without compromising or losing the child’s true identity. The non-profit Cornerstone Educational Preschool accepts children between the ages of 2 ½ to 5 ½ years of age.


Cornerstone Educational Preschool’s vision is to reach out to children through validating learning styles, so that each individual feels empowered to make a difference by understanding his or her inner gifts.Cornerstone Educational Preschool’s vision is to build bridges between inner realities to the outer world.


Cornerstone Educational Preschool’s mission is its bottom line— finding real answers for real concerns to ensure the development of the child.  Cornerstone Educational Preschool is anon-profit independent contractor with a mission of building curriculum around the child, rather than placing a child in a curriculum.  The key to this alternative learning approach is to focus on meeting areas of learning through the child’s strengths.
