Our Committee

The committee is made up of parents/carers and friends of the pre-school who give their time voluntarily.


We are responsible for primary decision making, reviewing both policy and practice, fundraising, the employment of staff, and line management of the setting’s Manager.

Our committee meetings are held half-termly at pre-school in the evenings and all aspects of pre-school life are discussed. We also have a fundraising team which meet to discuss ways to raise funds.

Every year an Annual General Meeting (AGM) is held, normally in October.  At this meeting the committee for the following year is elected. All parents are invited to attend the AGM and stand for election. It is in the best interests of your child that at least one parent/carer from each family try to attend this meeting as it directly affects the running of the pre-school.

New committee members are always welcomed. It is a fantastic way to be a part of the community, meet other people and be directly involved in the running of the pre-school. If this is something you might be interested in, please email committeechair@fenstantonpreschool.org.uk or come along to the next AGM.

Please note new committee members are required to complete a DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check.
