Picton Community Preschool – serving multiple generations

CONTRIBUTORS

Picton Community Preschool has a long-standing relationship with the community, this means that we are fortunate enough to see multiple generations of families attending our preschool.

For instance, Chris Taylor attended Picton Community Preschool and is pictured here in 1985, with his dad at a parent’s day visit.

In September 2019, Chris returned to Picton Community Preschool as a dad, celebrating an open family evening, this time with his son Levi who now attends the preschool, just as Chris did.

It has been 34 years since Chris had played with his dad at the preschool and now his son Levi, is enjoying the same childhood experience, shared with his dad. During the visit, Levi invited his dad to play with the wooden building blocks, as pictured. The significance of this event was not lost on Chris, 34 years later.

“Being able to share the same experience with Levi that I got to share with my dad is a special day for my family. The preschool has been a part of our family and our history. I am just over the moon that Levi will have these special memories of our time together, just as I have with my dad”.
