About the committee
As a charity, the Pre-School is managed by a committee – a team of dedicated parent volunteers, who kindly donate their time and skills for the benefit of the children and school.
Whilst our fantastic staff team organise and oversee the planning, running and supervision of the children’s care and education in the setting, the committee are in charge of looking at the bigger picture and are managing the financial and admin side of running the Pre-School. The key responsibilities of the committee are:
- Managing the Pre-School’s finances
- Fundraising and organising events that benefit the Pre-School
- Employing staff and supervising the management of the setting
- Marketing and advertising the services of the Pre-School
- Overseeing and resolving any maintenance and Health and Safety issues
Who we are
Currently the committee is made up of parents of children of the Pre-School, ensuring that the key decisions are in the hands of people who want to help support and provide the highest possible standard of childcare in the setting. Our committee meetings are generally every six weeks, and are a brilliant way to have a say in how the Pre-School is run. It is also a chance to get to know what goes on “behind-the-scenes”, as well as a chance to socialise and meet some of the other parents.
The members of the committee are elected at our Annual General Meeting (AGM), and are all DBS checked. New members are always welcome to join the committee. And you don’t have to be a parent to join – you could be a guardian, a grand-parent, or just a member of the community who would be happy to donate their time and skills to support our local pre-school. If you are interested in joining the committee, we would love to hear from you. Please get in touch via the Pre-school email.
