The Committee

Our Pre-School is a charitable incorporated organisation, registered with the Charities Commission and run for the benefit of the children, their families and the community. As such, we have a Management Committee (made up of volunteer parents or carers, or members of our local community) that is responsible for the Pre-School and its staff. We are always very keen to recruit new Committee Members! If you would like to find out a little more about supporting our pre-school in this way, please do give us a call on 01372 721 111!

Key roles of the Committee

Committee members are the charity trustees of the Pre-School and meet to discuss key operational and strategic matters, as well as taking on specific responsibilities from reviewing policy changes, undertaking risk assessments and fundraising.


The Committee Members

Committee members are elected at our Annual General Meeting, which is normally held in October each year.
