EYNSHAM PRE-SCHOOL IS RUN BY A DEDICATED COMMITTEE OF PARENTS AND LOCAL VOLUNTEERS

As a charity, the Pre-School is managed by a committee – a team of dedicated volunteers, who kindly donate their time and skills for the benefit of the children.

Whilst our fantastic staff team organise and oversee the planning, running and supervision of the children’s care and education in the setting, the committee are in charge of looking at the bigger picture and are managing the financial and admin side of running the Pre-School. The key responsibilities of the committee are:

  • Managing the Pre-School’s finances
  • Fundraising and organising events that benefit the Pre-School
  • Employing staff and supervising the management of the setting
  • Marketing and advertising the services of the Pre-School
  • Overseeing and resolving any maintenance and Health and Safety issues
  • Reviewing and updating policies and procedures

Who we are

The committee must have a majority of members who are parents or guardians of children attending the Pre-School. This ensures that the key decisions are in the hands of people who deeply care about providing the highest possible standard of childcare in the setting.

Our committee meetings are generally once per month and are a great way to have a say in how the Pre-School is run, and get to know what goes on “behind-the-scenes”, as well as great chance to socialise and meet some of the other parents.

The members of the committee are elected at our Annual General Meeting (AGM), and are all DBS checked and registered with OFSTED. New members are always welcome to join the committee. And you don’t have to be a parent to join – you could be a guardian, a grand-parent, or just a member of the community who would be happy to donate their time and skills and get involved with such a great cause. If you are interested in joining the committee, or have any other feedback, we would love to hear from you. Please get in touch: committee@eynshampreschool.org

Committee Co-Chair

About me: I’ve lived in and around Oxfordshire for most of my life, and we are lucky enough to have our daughter at the pre-school and loving it! I’ve worked in a variety of roles as a Paramedic within the Ambulance Service over the past 13 years, and currently work for the National Ambulance Resilience Unit – looking after a range of capabilities.
Likes: Cooking, good music, and the countryside
Fun fact: I once had a skiing lesson which ended with me losing control and crashing into a sign advertising skiing lessons. I haven’t been skiing since!
