Sooke Family Resource Society (SFRS) is hosting a free Family Fun Day community event on May 26, 2018. We are sharing information about all the services we offer and celebrating 30 years of our Kingfisher Preschool Program.
Over the years, Kingfisher has been the first group learning experience for more than 1,000 Sooke children and their families. Some may remember the first preschool at Maple Avenue. Some may remember “Teddy Bear House” out on the field behind Journey Middle School.
Today, some of our “Kingfisher kids” have come full circle, with their own children now enrolled at Kingfisher. Others are engaged in elementary, middle, high school and community activities they enjoy.
Some well-known local grownups were once happy Kingfisher preschoolers, now giving back to their community as volunteers or entrepreneurs. Alumnus and local music personality Taylor Caspersen will be sharing his talents with us on May 26.
The Family Fund Day event will also feature music by Janet McTavish and free hot dog lunch provided by Sooke Lions Club. SEAPARC is offering games, Children’s Health Foundation is bringing the cake, SFRS is planning children’s activities, and Cherry Lane Equine is sharing their Farm Animal Expo! And the Kingfisher teachers have created a nostalgic “Kingfisher Memory Lane.”
Join us on May 26, 11am to 2pm at Sooke Child Youth and Family Centre, 6672 Wadams Way. A raffle featuring prizes by WestJet and renowned Witness Blanket artist Carey Newman will be drawn at 1:45 pm. Tickets will be on sale at Family Fun Day.
