We are run by a voluntary management committee which is made up of past and present parents. All parents are welcome to join and support the running of the Pre-School by being involved with the production and evaluation of the policies and procedures, staff appointments, financial decisions and fund raising.
If you would like to attend please speak to our manager or any committee member.
An important part of the committee's work is fundraising. As a registered charity we have a fantastic team of parents who help with our fundraising every year and we would love you to help. Please let our manager or the committee know you are interested.
One way you can help is by using our easy fundraising page everytime you shop.
If you already shop at places like Argos, Next, John Lewis etc then simply click the link to our East Fundraising page first and we receive a free 15% donation from your sale.
