Committee


Shurdington Pre-School is a registered charity and we strive to provide high quality Early Years Childcare at reasonable prices, relying very much on community support to run our voluntary Management Committee which runs the settings financial and administrative affairs. Our committee is typically made up of current and past parents. Our Play Leader is also a member.


All parents and carers are encouraged to take an active role in the committee and/or come along to meetings – without volunteers the preschool will not be able to continue. New parents will always receive a warm welcome at our meetings which happen once a term (approximately every 6 weeks) with additional adhoc meetings as needed. Please let us know if you are interested in joining the committee, we always welcome new expertise and enthusiasm!
