Walk-a-thon and bake sale for little red Saanich pre-school

The Strawberry Vale Co-op Preschool holds walk-a-thon and bake sale this weekend for little red schoolhouse on Rosedale Avenue

The Strawberry Vale Co-op Preschool holds a walk-a-thon and bake sale this weekend to raise money for the quaint, little red schoolhouse on Rosedale Avenue.

The event happens Saturday (April 12) from 1 to 3 p.m. on the field next to the school (4130 Rosedale Ave.).

The preschool, formerly the Colquitz Co-Op Preschool, is 100-per cent parent-owned. Parents take responsibility of the fundraising, maintenance of the building and they work in the classroom alongside the early childhood educator.

Money raised from the event will go towards school supplies, utilities and up-keep of the school. Later this year the preschool will launch a larger capital project to upgrade the interior of the building. Parents are looking for community partners and companies that are willing to assist with those upgrades.
