The Committee

The Committee
Ladybirds Pre-school Leavenheath is managed by an elected committee of parents/carers responsible for the overall running of the pre-school, reviewing policy and practice and for the employment and appraisal of staff.

Meetings are usually held once every half term and all are made welcome, even if they are not on the committee, in order to express their views and ideas.

The committee is actively involved in fundraising for the group, e.g. quiz nights, a summer ball and an annual photograph opportunity for all children.

We rely upon an active committee in order that the pre-school can continue to flourish and are always happy to welcome new members.

Parent/Carer Involvement
In community based settings that are members of the Pre-School Learning Alliance all parents are regarded as members 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 member of the Pre-School Learning Alliance, our setting recognises parents as the first and most important educators of children. Our staff see themselves as partners with parents in providing care and education for their child.

Parent involvement
We have regular sessions where we invite parents to come in and join us. These range from Forest School to Mother’s and Father’s Day and other special celebrations. 

We also welcome any parent with a special talent or occupation to come and share their skills and experiences with the children. Parents are also invited to take part in events and informal discussions about activities and the group’s development plan provided by Pre-School and join in community activities in which Pre-School takes part.
