Drayton Daisy Chain Pre-school is a parent managed committee run pre-school. This means that parents of children in the setting come together to hold joint responsibility for the management of the pre-school.
We are members of the Pre-school Learning Alliance and have adopted their ‘constitution’ – a constitution defines our legal structure and enables us to operate within the guidelines of charity law.
All committee members need to sign a confidentiality agreement in order to protect the committee and setting. Each member undertakes an enhanced disclosure barring service check (DBS) and an EY2 form.
It is an opportunity to develop social and professional skills whilst making a contribution that benefits the learning experience of children as they start out on their learning journey.
Every committee must have a Chairperson, a Treasurer and a Secretary and at least two other members.
The Chairperson is the public face of the elected committee, representing the setting where necessary. The Chairperson ensures that meetings are effective, that decisions are taken and implemented in a way that complies with the constitution. The Chairperson is usually the line manager.
The Treasurer works closely with management regarding income and expenditure – all committee members are responsible for making financial decisions, but the treasurer guides and advises the committee on approval of budgets and accounts.
The Secretary in consultation with the Chairperson draws up and circulates the agenda before committee meetings and ensures proper records of meetings are kept.
As a Registered Charity, fundraising is crucial. We hold fundraising events throughout the year, this is an opportunity to support organising events and promote awareness of the pre-school’s work, goals and financial needs.
