Kingdom Kids and Education Trust governs two Centres:

Cornerstone Preschool and Sonrise Christian Preschool.

Each Centre has a management team consisting of the service provider/trustee, centre manager, headteacher, office administrator and parents.

Cornerstone Preschool Mission

Kingdom Kids and Education Trust seeks to encourage children to know God as their Heavenly Father and Jesus as their friend by supporting Cornerstone Preschool and Sonrise Christian Preschool to ensure each child:

• receives a quality education that incorporates the Bible principles and Te Whāriki.
• is encouraged to acquire an appreciation of their own individuality and awareness of their worth as a child of God
• develops a sense of their place in our community and God’s world.

Teach a child how he should live, and he will remember it all of his life.

Proverbs22:6 (GNB)

We foster strong partnerships with whānau and the local community. We recognise tamariki are gifts from God and acknowledge their uniqueness and the korowai of gifts and talents they bring. We model God’s love for them and our Christian values that will form strong foundations for life.

We support a program that is fun, stimulating, responsive and respectful to the needs of tamariki in a safe environment. We empower and encourage our tamariki to learn, grow and engage whilst strengthening and affirming their interests as individuals as they learn and develop through play.
