Kick off the holiday season with Cornerstone Montclair at our Autism and Sensory Friendly Santa Event!

All children are welcome at this event. It is designed to be especially welcoming to children with autism and other challenges.

Families will have the chance to meet Santa without long lines, in a quiet and calm environment. A limited number of children will be in the room with Santa at one time. Kids can get as close to Santa as they want, or keep their distance. Parents may take their own pictures (there will not be a professional photographer at the event). Your $5 admission fee includes family time with Santa, a small holiday gift and a $5 coupon to The General Store at Cornerstone Montclair, located in the first floor of the building.

We are excited to share that Santa will be played by Dr. Kerry Magro! Kerry is an award-winning professional speaker and best-selling author who’s on the autism spectrum.

This past May, Kerry, who went from nonverbal autism to professional speaker graduated with his Doctorate in Educational Technology Leadership. For the past 5 years as CEO & President of KFM Making A Difference, a nonprofit organization that hosts inclusion events and has provided 68 scholarships for students with autism for college, he has hosted an autism & sensory-friendly Santa event in Jersey City where he played Saint Nick for over 500 children with special needs.
