Precious Treasures celebrates 20 years

| August 18, 2016

WEST LAFAYETTE – Youngsters enjoyed making bubbles and playing various games at the 20 year anniversary party for Precious Treasures in West Lafayette on Monday evening, Aug. 15. The West Lafayette Fire Department brought two engines to the event, delighting the boys and girls.

Director Francie Shuck, who has been with Precious Treasures for 16 years, said about being able to serve the community for 20 years, “It’s amazing. I couldn’t ask for better kids or parents and families. Our daycare board is outstanding.”

“We have some fire trucks here tonight to let the kids look around, we have a police cruiser and different kinds of carnival games, food, cake, the whole nine yards. We’ve been here a long time and we strive to provide good quality care for our kids. We are very appreciative of all the support that we receive every day.”

Angie Smoulder said this about the care, “All three of our boys are here. It’s nice to have a place so close to home and with such great care and attention for our kids.”

Melanie Kunze shared that at the end of the evening the fire department hosed what was left of the bubbles off of the street for safety reasons and they let the kids help hold the hose. Nine year old Kaylee Kunzee said, “That was the coolest thing!”

Precious Treasures is a daycare for children 6 weeks old through 12 years of age and has a preschool program for 3 to 5 year olds.
