The Preschool is run by a management committee. Director and committee members are elected at the AGM in September. Any parent may stand as a director or committee member. If you are interested in being on the committee please see any of the committee members or Preschool leader.
The committee consists of a minimum of 5 people and a maximum of 12 people
2 to 9 others
Please see the notice board for a list of the committee members and roles. Committee meetings are held at least once every half term.
A list of directors is also displayed on the notice board and Memorandum of Associations of Swarland Preschool Group Limited is displayed in the cloakroom
All parents of Swarland Preschool are welcome to attend meetings and get involved in the running of the group. We need your support, don’t leave it all up to the committee – it is important to:
1 Share responsibility.
2 Share decision making.
3 Give everyone a say.
4 Encourage personal growth of adults concerned with the group.
5 Free the staff so that they have more time to work with the children and talk to parents/carers.
The Preschool is a member of the Pre-school Learning Alliance.
This gives the following benefits:-
1 Under 5’s contact magazine.
2 Votes at Branch and National level.
3 Cheaper publications.
4 Good insurance scheme for Under 5’s groups.
5 In touch with new developments in Under 5’s care.
Parents as helpers
Parents are the first educators of their young children. We aim to support parents/carers in their essential role and work together as a team to care and educate each individual child. Any parent who would be willing to help out occasionally during preschool activities please contact the Preschool leader.
“Parents are children’s first and enduring educators. When parents and practitioners work together in early years settings, the results have a positive impact on children’s development and learning.” (EYFS 2015)
