As Burghclere Pre-School is a registered charity it is managed by a committee. The Committee is made up of parent volunteers who oversee the overall development of the pre-school, help develop the policies, strategies, and manage the finances and fundraising.
The committee usually meets on average every six weeks during term time.
If you would like to get involved and join the committee we would love to hear from you. It is a great way to find out more about Burghclere Pre-school, how it works, take an active role in its day to day running as well as get to know staff and other parents.
You can volunteer for a role, or simply join as a committee member. You can be as involved as much or as little as you have time for. We have working Mums and Dads on the committee as well as stay at home parents and guardians all giving different amounts of input and time. All committee memebers have a variety of backgrounds, which adds to a great variety of ideas and input. It can also be a great way for you to use your skills or even learn new ones, which can be added to your CV.
