SPRING Road Community Kindergarten is celebrating 25 years in the Kalamunda community with a look back over the years and a family day.

The free event takes place tomorrow, 10am to 4pm, with a chance to meet Kanyana wildlife up close, enjoy a treasure dig, and arts and crafts.

Opposite the kindergarten, St Barnabas Church will host the kindy’s flashback display of artworks, from 9am to 4pm, today and Saturday, and from 9am to noon on Sunday.

The artwork features memorabilia and photographs spanning the kindergarten’s 25-years.

President Kate Williams said many children in Kalamunda began their education at the kindy, currently specialising in pre-school preparation for four year olds.

“It’s been a rewarding journey seeing so many happy faces passing through this place as a stepping stone into their future,” Ms Williams said.

“We hope to see many familiar as well as new faces at the community fun day tomorrow.”

A familiar face to look out for will be early childhood teacher Glenys Evans, of Carmel, who retired last year after 24 years of service.

“Spring Road is such a delightful place, a beautiful environment where great relationships with parents are formed,” Mrs Evans said.

“I have so many lovely memories to cherish and I was fortunate to work there for so long.”

The kindergarten is located at 1A Spring Road.
