Kingdom Kids and Education Trust governs two Centres:

Sonrise Christian Preschool and Cornerstone Preschool.

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


Sonrise Christian 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.


Sonrise Christian Preschool Philosophy

We encourage children to develop an understanding of Christian values which will help build positive relationships in a caring, loving, inclusive and safe environment. We believe children learn best through play and when they are valued as unique individuals and able to make choices that support life-long learning.

We acknowledge children’s prior knowledge and experiences as valuable contributions to ako – teaching and learning. Sonrise Christian Preschool community fosters open communication and whānau involvement to promote positive outcomes for all tamariki.


Long Term Goals

• To promote and extend the learning and development of children through the provision of quality Christian childhood education and care;
• To provide a safe and stable environment for children, their families, staff and visitors to Cornerstone Preschool.

• To improve the effectiveness of planning, assessment and evaluation as well as governance and management.
