There are many ways to get involved with the pre-school
You can give as much or as little of your time as you are able to.
Belton Pre-school is a registered charity which is run by a voluntary trustee committee of parents and carers. The Committee is responsible for the overall leadership, governance and financial stability of the Pre-school and for ensuring that it complies with relevant legal regulations. As part of this, the Committee will provide direction on the Pre-school's policies, manage and engage staff, and organise fundraising and organising social events. The responsibility for the implementation of the policies and the day-to-day running of the setting rests with qualified professionals, namely the Manager (Kathryn Pullan) and her team of staff. The Committee meets half-termly, unless more frequent meetings are required.
As a committee, we focus a lot of our effort on fundraising to fund projects which will enhance the children’s learning opportunities and improve their environment. We are currently looking for parents/carers/friends & family to join our Fundraising sub-committee to volunteer time to help organise fundraising events. You don't need to commit to regular time just any free time you can help out would be much appreciated.
As a charity, we are able to claim gift aid worth £2.50 for every £10 received. If you feel you are able to donate either a one off amount or an amount spread over the terms please complete a gift aid form and return to Kathryn or Louise at the pre-school.
Donations of time and materials are always very gratefully received. There is a wish list of materials and 'odd jobs' up in the entrance hall. Whatever contribution you think you can make and however you think you might be able to help us, we would be delighted to hear from you.
