The Committee

The Pre-school is run as a Charity by an elected committee, which ensures that major decision making is in the hands of parents who care about the first steps that your child takes in education.

The committee is responsible for reviewing both policy and practice and for the employment and appraisal of our dedicated members of staff.

The Pre-school also organise a number of fund raising and social events to ensure that we deliver on our commitment to give every child the opportunity to reach their full potential in a safe and caring environment.

Should you wish to be more actively involved with the Pre-school, we would love to hear from you as we are always open to new volunteers.
