HOW IT WORKS
Little Swans Pre-school is registered as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) where the pre-school has its own separate legal identity from the Trustees/Committee Members. The Committee is responsible for fundraising and overseeing the running of the pre-school.
Trustees: Usually you join the committee for a minimum of a year though many people choose to stay on for longer. In Autumn Term we hold our AGM where volunteers for any vacancies are sought. The committee requires at least 3 trustees to be able to run. If you are interested in joining our Committee please speak to a member of staff who will be able to give you more information, we would love to have you on board!
Members: If you want to be part of the fundraising events and other Pre-school functions without being committed to a post, please put your name forward.
If you are interested in joining our committee or would just like to help out without any commitment, please speak to a member of staff.
As a registered charity Little Swans Pre-School is managed by a committee of parent/carer volunteers. The word ‘Committee’ can sound off putting, but we are really just a group of parents with a little time to give to Pre-School.
It’s not a huge commitment and you can volunteer for whatever role interests you most, either using the skills you already have or developing new ones you could add to your CV!
The committee is vital to the smooth running of the Pre-School. We hold termly meetings and being on the committee gives all parents involved an insight into behind the scenes of Pre-School.
We hold an annual general meeting in the Autumn Term when new committee members are elected although you can join our Committee any time in the year.
The following positions and current committee members are:
Chairperson - Fritha Langdell
Treasurer – Nick Cocking
Trustee - Sabrina Andrews
