IT may be more than three decades old, but Roberta Jull Family Day Care in Gosnells has its best days ahead of it.

The daycare is celebrating its 35th anniversary this year, but has shown no signs of slowing down, recently being recognised by the nation’s peak child education body.

The Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority noted the facility exceeded the national quality standards in all seven of their quality areas.

Manager Maureen Daniels said the centre’s community spirit was pivotal to its long tenure.

“We’re very much out in the community, meeting and greeting people and we welcome educators and family from all walks of life, we’re supportive,” she said.

Ms Daniels said it was a big achievement for the centre to make it to 35 years, especially after its funding was cut a couple of years ago.

“As a not-for-profit organisation, it was a big step, but we negotiated with educators for the best step forward and worked through that,” she said.

To celebrate 35 years, the centre is hosting a Family Fiesta on February 25 and is inviting all past and present families, staff and educators to help celebrate.

Held at its Gosnells facility from 11am-2pm, there will be a petting zoo, creative art and crafts, a pirate-themed treasure hunt and some surprise guests.
