Committee

The preschool is a registered charity and is run by a board of trustees and committee members. The Committee is responsible for making sure that the preschool runs efficiently, safely, within the law and meets the needs of the children and parents that use it. By being a member of the Committee you, as a parent or carer, are in an ideal position to help make this happen. All trustees and committee members are OFSTED approved and CRB checked.
The current management committee members for 2014/2015 are;

Chairperson – Joanne Humphries 

Secretary – Sharon Parker

Treasurer – Laura Jones

Should you wish to get more involved in the running of the preschool, we hold an Annual General Meeting in September each year where a new committee is elected and any parent of a child at preschool or toddler group can stand for election.

 

Parents and Carers

The preschool provides a great opportunity for parents and carers to get involved in many different ways. Join the staff during their day for parent helper time, become a committee member, help with fundraising or organise events. Everyone is offered a chance to join in and contribute.
