Kindy still strong af­ter four decades

Gatton Star - - Early Education & Education Matters -

THE Lai­d­ley C&K Kinder­garten is cel­e­brat­ing 40 years of pro­vid­ing a high-qual­ity early childhood pro­gram to the chil­dren of Lai­d­ley and sur­round­ing ar­eas.

On Satur­day, De­cem­ber 7, it is open­ing its time cap­sule, which was buried in the kindy’s Birth­day Gar­den in 2003.

Hope­fully it has sur­vived the floods of 2011 and 2013, which in­un­dated the kindy grounds and build­ing.

The kindy build­ing, a 130-year-old for­mer Pres­by­te­rian church, has now been re­stored to bet­ter than its for­mer glory by lo­cal builder Gra­ham Bichel and his ded­i­cated team of work­ers.

The time cap­sule con­tains photo al­bums of the chil­dren cel­e­brat­ing their birth­day in 2003, some me­mora­bilia and toys put in by the chil­dren.

A new time cap­sule with the thoughts of the 2013 chil­dren on “when I grow up I want to be...” and mes­sages from the 2003 co­hort will be buried un­til 2023.

The kindy is look­ing to con­tact the chil­dren and fam­i­lies from the class of 2003 so they can join with the class of 2013 for a morn­ing of kindy fun to cel­e­brate this mile­stone.

If you are a past fam­ily of the kindy, you will re­mem­ber the “name pavers” in the kindy path.

If you would like to pur­chase a paver and add your name, please phone the kindy on 5465 1723 or email di­rec­[email protected]­d­leykinder­garten .com.au.
