You CAN make a difference.
We have a few spaces left on the committee this year if you'd like to come and join us, mainly events and fundraising, so you have the chance to get involved and ensure preschool is financially secure each year. Time Commitment is low, we only meet every other month and events are mainly once a term- and nothing is mandatory, you can chose what you help with! Those staying on in September, it'll be great to get involved now, to see how it all works!

Uniforms are always available to buy, just ask a staff member.
Polo's Red or Blue £6.50
Fleeces Red or Blue £8.75
They wash and wear really well and keeps your nice home clothes just that, nice!
