The Management of our Setting

Ditton Lodge Community Preschool Nursery is managed by a voluntary committee of parents and carers, and without this Committee the preschool would not be able to operate.  We are members of the Preschool Learning Alliance (PLA) who provide the Committee with support and guidance, and the Committee adheres to the terms of the PLA’s 2011 Constitution.  In brief, the Committee is responsible for reviewing both policy and practice, and for the employment and appraisal of members of staff, as well as fundraising for the preschool. All parents are welcome to participate in the management of the nursery by joining the Committee.

Members of the Committee are elected by the parents of the children who attend preschool. These elections take place at our Annual General Meeting which is held during the Autumn Term.  Most committee members serve for one year,but are entitled to serve for up to ten years if they so wish.  Being a member of the Committee is a worthwhile experience as it not only gives you a greater involvement and insight in this vitally important stage of your child’s education, but is also a good way of getting to know other parents.

Fund Raising

We are a registered charity and the fantastic facilities we have today are there because of the fundraising efforts of previous committees.  The support we receive is invaluable and it enables us to provide high quality preschool education.  Throughout the year we hold several fundraising events run by the Committee as well as events during preschool hours such as dress up days and sponsored events. We also have several fundraising schemes already set up:-

We always welcome new fundraising ideas whether or not you are a Committee member and all support is gratefully received.

Further information about the Committee can be found in the prospectus 2019-2020
