The Pre-school is a voluntary committee run charity.
Chairperson - Yrsa Logan.
Yrsa is a former parent and has been chairperson since 2010 years. Yrsa liaises closely with the pre-school manager, meeting weekly, and carrying out the manager’s supervision and appraisal.
The pre-school is run on a daily basis by the manager and supervisor whilst the Pre-school committee oversees the administration and management of the Pre-school. Both parties liaise together regarding salaries, opening hours, term dates, purchase of resources, staff welfare and training needs.
The committee comprises of both present and former parents, local parishioners and staff. They meet together once a term to discuss any items brought to their attention by the pre-school management team, fundraising, review policies and procedures and to be informed of any updates to legislation.
Parents/carers are informed in good time of the date of the meetings.
This year the committee and staff have arranged a Mother’s Day and Father’s Day events, sponsored bounce, made and sold biscuits for Children in Need, collected Sainsbury’s vouchers and planted seeds for our outdoor areas, raising approximately £800. Part of this has been used to develop our Forest area, part will be used to enhance our terrace and some will be used to top up our resources such as paint, paper, glue etc.
