We are a registered charity run by a Committee of volunteers, mostly made up of parents of children attending the Pre-School. The Committee work in tandem with the Playgroup staff to ensure the smooth running of the Playgroup.
The Committee is responsible for:
- Supporting the senior staff in managing the Playgroup finances and personnel
- Making sure that the Playgroup has – and works to – policies which help it to provide a high quality environment for our children
- Making sure that the Playgroup works in partnership with the children’s parents
We depend upon on the goodwill of parents and their involvement with the Playgroup. Without the Committee the Playgroup would not be able to operate and would have to close.
Each volunteer member of the Committee will bring different skills which are invaluable to the running of our Playgroup. Everyone is equally welcome to join us. You don’t need any direct experience to make a difference.
The Committee is elected at the Annual General Meeting held in October each year and meets every 6 to 8 weeks during term time.
The Annual General Meeting is open to the parents of all of the children who attend the Playgroup. It is our forum for looking back over the previous year’s activities and shaping the coming year’s activities.
If you would like to feel that you are putting something back into our community and volunteer for the Committee in any role, no matter how large or small, please get in touch or come along to a committee meeting.
