Role of Parents
As a parent you are regarded as members of our setting who have full participatory rights. These include a right to be: valued and respected, kept informed, consulted, involved, and included at all levels. As a charity, our Pre-School also depends on the good will of parents and their involvement to keep going. Membership of the setting carries expectations on your support and commitment.
Our fundraising committee meet each half term. These are very informal and everyone is welcome to attend. In addition, an Annual General Meeting takes place every July, at which the committee positions (Chairman, Secretary, Treasurer etc.) are appointed for the following school year. These positions are mostly held by parents. The committee supports the management team and is responsible for fundraising. The day-to-day running of the Pre-School is the responsibility of the Manager and her team.
We actively encourage all parents to become involved with our village Pre-School in one way or another, to support your child's early years setting. You may well develop new friendships and skills yourself through helping out and getting to know other families with children of a similar age. The success and long-term future of Stoke Goldington Pre-School depends on your support – so get involved with your child's best interests at heart!
As a registered charity, fundraising is an essential part of the running of our Pre-School and we rely entirely on parents for this important task. We aim to raise around £3,000 each year to maintain resources and equipment for your children. Any donations from parents or companies are gratefully received.
Parent Help Rota
Parents, grandparents or other family members who wish to stay and play can sign up on the rota each term. The children at Pre-School benefit greatly from parents being involved. It is also a great opportunity for you to see first hand your child's involvement and learning within the setting.
We appreciate you may be unable to help during a session, but your support can take any form, from washing some of our resources to a financial donation.
Parents can join our private, closed group on Facebook to keep up to date with news and photos! Just search for 'Stoke Goldington Pre-School Community'
