All About Us‎ > ‎

Committee

The Kindergarten is run by an elected committee of volunteer parents, who, in consultation with staff, are responsible for all major decision-making. New members are always welcome, as is any help with fundraising and other events throughout the year. Without the commitment and support of all our parents the Kindergarten could no longer continue to flourish

Chairperson:  Maddy Adams

Treasurer:  Kate Germer
Committee:  Sam Watson, Claire Penfold, Sarah Collins and Sarah Keith-Lucas






Fund Raising

Although we receive a fee income and Government funding, it is imperative for the Committee to maintain a healthy fundraising schedule to ensure that the financial needs of the Kindergarten are met. The Christmas Raffle, Sports Day, Race Night, Coffee and Cake mornings and End of Term Parties are examples of regular successful fund raising events. All are encouraged to participate and new ideas are always gratefully received!



Parental involvement

The Kindergarten actively encourages the parents of the children to assist in the daily running of the Kindergarten. Parents are encouraged to help with fundraising activities such baking cakes, helping at social events and end of term parties, helping out at end of term parties or maybe joining the committee. 
The Kindergarten actively encourages parents to get involved with the Kindergarten. The children love to receive special visits and who knows, you may inspire someone in the future! We are also always grateful when a parent is able to step in at short notice to cover an unexpected staff absence or as part of planned cover for staff training. A list of parents able to provide cover on ad hoc basis is maintained in the Kindergarten lobby.
