Cornerstone Christian Early Learning Centres




Enrolment forms are available at our centre, or you can download the form by clicking the link on the right side of this page.

To secure your interest in enrolling, it is essential for you to fill out the enrolment form in full and send it to us with a copy of your child’s Birth Certificate or Passport and their Immunisation record (if available).

We encourage you to visit the Centre with your child before they start. This provides the child with a time where they can feel emotionally safe with family close by as they explore their new environment. These will be arranged at the time of enrolment.

Childcare Subsidies are available to a wide range of families and we are happy to advise on the conditions that may apply to your family.

“When Tim and I were looking for a preschool for our girls we wanted something Christ centred, Cornerstone has exceeded our expectations. From the first day we have felt like our Cornerstone family has been everything we could have imagined for our girls. The attention to detail that’s put into teaching the gospel truths that are so important to us as a family is remarkable, as well as the nurturing of our girls. We are often reminded about the details of bible stories and passages taught at preschool at our dinner time conversations. We feel beyond blessed to have Cornerstone as our girls preschool.” ~ Sarah

“I am extremely pleased with the choice of Christian topics taught in Cornerstone. It warms my heart to see my son coming home talking about the Armor of God, the first Christmas, the fruit of the Spirit, etc…

 I am forever grateful to the caring, loving, dedicated, committed, faithful Godly teachers, staff and administrators of Cornerstone preschool for the great learning experience they have provided to my son. I take comfort everyday in knowing that he is being taught and nurtured in a Christian setting.” ~ Alex
