More than 300 guests consisting of previous staff, students and their families attended the celebration and open house at Rainbowland Christian Preschool in Shingle Springs on Sunday, April 10.

In addition to the elaborate refreshments of edible topiaries with chocolate dipped strawberries and cream puffs, brownies, and mini cupcakes with “Happy 25th” banners on them, there was face painting and a bounce house.

Girl Scouts from Troop 1193, based in Cameron Park, volunteered by providing face painting along with two high school students from Oak Ridge High School and Shenandoah High School, and Bel Air and Food 4 Less donated to the event.

Posters lined the fences with class pictures from the past 25 years, and previous staff, students and their families could be seen searching for their smiling faces and those of their friends.

Former student, Robin Collins-Susa, 29, traveled from Napa with her two young daughters for the festivities. Also attending, was a current student with his dad, who had graduated from Rainbowland 23 years ago.

Guests received souvenir pens to commemorate the event.

Sandy Foster, owner and director, opened the preschool 25 years ago for her own daughters who were 2 and 4 years old at the time, and continues to direct Rainbowland Christian Preschool.

“It is my passion to work with young children and their families, and I’m so blessed that I have been able to do this for the past 25 years. I look forward to many more years,” Foster said.

Rainbowland Christian Preschool is located at 4400 South Shingle Road in Shingle Springs. For more information visit rainbowland.us or call 530-676-2120.
