Ringwood Uniting Preschool – 50th anniversary

By November 7, 2009November 30th, 2009No Comments

The Ringwood Uniting Preschool is located in Greenwood Avenue, Ringwood near Bedford Road and was opened as an approved centre in February 1959.

The work, however, began in 1957 when a Committee of Parents and Friends discussed the possibility of starting a kindergarten to reduce the large waiting lists that existed at the time.

Today’s event included past and present staff, committee members and families, who all shared in the celebrations. I was invited to speak as part of the celebrations, where I discussed the commitment of the many people involved within the organisation and the increasing emphasis on early childhood education.

The Ringwood Uniting Church has a strong history of community involvement, through its founding of Ringwood Biala, the Ringwood Uniting Adult Daycare Service and the Ringwood Uniting Preschool.

These organisations contribute immensely to the wellbeing of local residents, through providing a range of much needed services for our community.
