Why does my child get injured at school? It seems like s/he's always coming home with a band-aid?

Young children are supposed to be very active. When they are really doing their job of exploring the world, they rack up a lot of bruises and scraped knees. At Cornerstone Center, we think it's much more important for children to learn by investigating their surroundings--taking an occasional tumble in the process--than it is for them to be overly protected.
When your child gets a minor injury, teachers will be supportive and sympathetic. They will also encourage your child to participate in the first aid process at whatever level is appropriate, in order to develop a sense of competence and independence. Whenever an injury leaves a mark on your child's body, an Instructor will call to inform you and a written accident report will be prepared for you to pick-up upon your arrival.
