Welcome to Cornerstone Children’s Services

Being a family owned business, Cornerstone Children’s Services is growing in numbers and opportunities available for all families living in Rotorua and Dargaville. Our primary objective focuses on pick up & drop off services.
Our engagement with communities are well recognized and by doing so we take pride in our services by ensuring your child’s lifestyle needs are put first.

Our core services here at Cornerstone Children’s Services are

Before and After school care

We cater for children from 5 – 13 year olds

School holiday programs

We make the most of your child’s holidays by accommodating awesome excursions & trips.

After School Sports Program/Outdoor Experience Excursions

We believe NZ children should have a choice to participate in After School Sports Programs such as swimming lessons, fitness programs, walking/running through our outdoor environments and local community excursions that are educational and fun.

Holiday Programs

Our holiday programs are what separate us from our competition nationwide! Our programs cover the entire 2 week period for your child, leaving the fun-filled agenda to us! Our dedicated staff are always here to assist you in deciding what’s best for your child during the holiday program.


​Cornerstone Children’s Services newsletters shed light on exciting announcements happening within our center each term, updating you on everything you don’t want to miss from daily activities, promotions & your child’s adventure with us during their enrolment!..

Why Us

Our Mission

We are primarily established to provide a care service for working families, grandparents and adult learners attending Polytechnics/Universities. We aim to provide a flexible and affordable fee structure. Our sites are accessible and easy locations for parents to drop off/pick up their children.

Our Values

We believe that all children despite their abilities, backgrounds, cultures, genders and religon should have access to our services. The underpinnings of our services and values are based on the teachings of Jesus Christ and Christian values. We also recognise the unique partnership of the Treaty of Waitangi within our Oscar programs, policies and practices.

Our Community

At Cornerstone Children’s Services we understand that children learn in a variety of ways. As much as they can learn within our walls, they’ll learn an equal amount through their personal experience outside of our walls, in the community.

Can not rate this centre highly enough. The staff are all so professional and very understanding towards my child. The management are great and take a real interest into the children’s learning. Do not make the mistake the environment. Very different by comparison and basically the complete opposite. I love the convenience of it being close to the centre and the security protocol means I know my child is safe and secure while they’re there.
Highly recommend this centre for your child’s early development!!

My son started at Cornerstone Children when he was younger and used to cry when I drop him in the morning. Today, he cannot wait to go there in the mornings and not ready to leave his teachers in the evening. Feels happy as a mom to see him enjoying the daily learning activities and having fun with his friends. I’m happy to see him socializing, becoming a good eater and his learning.
Thanks to the Manager (Lorin) and carers (All of them).

Before putting my daughter into Cornerstone Childrens I’ve looked around a fair bit and no where felt as good as Cornerstone Childrens did. Now my daughter has been going there for almost a year now. Cornerstone Children is a second home for her now and she loves it to the point that she doesn’t want to go home at the end of the day. It’s a great centre and amazing staff.
