Outdoor or indoors, messy play is fun for everyone.
Committees have played an important role in establishing and running the Association’s kindergartens for much of the last century.
This was definitely the case when it came to the large and dedicated group of the Cotswold Kindergarten Committees from 1970-1979.
As the Association guidelines then read…
“In general practice a local committee is asked to find the necessary money to build, equip, maintain and furnish the kindergarten. It is assisted in this task by voluntary donations from parents and by subsidy grants from the Department of Education on all approved initial equipment and furniture.”
While over the years government grants and subsidies would be introduced, it has always been communities that have rallied together to support our kindergartens. And this has been reflected back in many of the activities in the kindy, from visits by local law enforcement, to imagining the kindergarten’s own medical centre or railway station!
