On Saturday the 28th of January, The Garden celebrated twenty-five years as an Ofsted-registered preschool.

Situated at Emmanuel Baptist Church in Falmouth, The Garden was registered in 1998 as a preschool for 2 - 4-year-olds, and over the last quarter of a century has welcomed almost 1000 families through its doors.

Priding itself in providing high-quality and affordable childcare, the preschool is well-known locally as a family-orientated and nurturing place for little ones to start off their education.

Emma Munden who manages The Garden, said: "It has been my privilege over the last four years to be the manager of the Garden Preschool. I am so proud of our staff and children and it has been amazing to celebrate this huge milestone with them this weekend."

A community family fun day was held on Saturday in celebration of the quarter-century anniversary, with a bouncy castle, soft play, tabletop games, face painting, crafts, and classic fair day games.

Bruce Ashely, one of the parents, said: " It was a Lovely event, we all had a great time. Thank you to everyone involved. Quite possibly the best nursery in Falmouth."

The weekend continued with a fundraising quiz in the evening, before concluding with a thanksgiving service on Sunday morning.

During this service, the founder of the Garden Preschool, Cathy Buckley, was in attendance, along with several of her colleagues and the longest-running committee member, former Falmouth School Headteacher, Ingram Bright, who has been on the committee since the preschool began.

Of course, no celebration would be complete without a cake and the weekend ended with a homemade anniversary cake being shared amongst staff, parents, children, and congregation members of Emmanuel Baptist Church (see picture at the top)
