AFTER countless hours of preparation, Maitland Community Preschool celebrated their 70th anniversary on May 6.
Organisers encouraged past and present supporters to join them at Maitland Town Hall to honour the history and dedication of the centre.
The organisation, formerly known as Maitland Nursery School, has nurtured and educated many children during its seven-decade existence.
The fun continued on Sunday morning, when Mem Fox arrived at the preschool to read some of her books to children and parents.
Not just a great time for all involed, the weekend also existed to raise funds for upgrades to the centre facilities.
