HOW IT WORKS
Trustees: Usually you join the committee for a minimum of a year though many people choose to stay on for longer. In October we hold our AGM where volunteers for any vacancies are sought. The committee requires at least 3 trustees.
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 see a member of staff, Fritha , our Chairperson, or any member of the Committee.
Little Swans Pre School Dawlish; Registered Charity Number 1172122
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 September when new committee members are elected.
The following positions and current committee members are:
Chairperson - Fritha Langdell
Deputy Chairperson - Jade La'Moon
Treasurer – Nick Cocking
Trustee - Sabrina Andrews
WHAT WE DO:
The committee works closely with the Pre-School Manger and staff to ensure the smooth running of the Pre-School. We hold termly meetings to plan fundraising events, check the budget remains on track and ensure that the needs of all children and staff are being met. It’s a great way to get to know the staff better and to meet other parents over a cup of tea, coffee or occasionally a glass of wine!.
Not only is being part of the committee a truly valuable role, it is also hugely rewarding. It gives you a real insight into what goes on behind the scenes at Pre-School as well as the opportunity to have a genuine impact on your child’s early year’s education.
