Our pre-school is a registered charity which is managed by a committee of parent volunteers. We adhere to the Pre-School Learning Alliance Model Pre-School Constitution 2011 which was accepted by the committee at the AGM in October 2016.
Chair: Gemma Phillips
Treasurer: Jessica Meehan
Secretary: Gemma Cruttenden
The committee is responsible for:
managing the Pre-School’s finances and setting budgets;
employing and managing the staff;
making sure that the Pre-School has, and works to, policies which help it to provide a high quality service;
making sure that the Pre-School works in partnership with the children’s parents;
organising fundraising and social events;
the overall strategy and development of the Pre-school, ensuring continuous improvement of our Pre-school provision;
attending committee meetings;
ensuring help and support is available to staff members to enable children to be involved in additional activities (e.g. school outings).
Everyone is welcome at our AGM, which is held at the beginning of the autumn term. This is when the committee is elected, and when we review the year and look at our plans for the future. The parent management committee meets once every half term.
We’d love to hear from you at any time if you would like to get involved and join the committee. Getting involved is a great way to learn more about the pre-school and to get to know the staff and other parents. Our committee positions are varied and it could be a great way to use the skills you already have, develop new ones and add to your CV! We can only operate as a Pre-School with a full Management Committee in place, so your support is vital.
Please get in touch to find out more about being on the committee or let us know if you have any suggestions for us.
