A Partnership With Parents
Brize Norton Village Preschool would not exist without the support of parents and parents’ involvement within the sessions is actively encouraged
Parent partnership enables us to offer better care for the children day to day, it also offers an opportunity for parents to give feedback on the setting.
On occasions we will ask for a number of helpers for some activities, visiting the allotment or play park, as we require a higher adult to child ratio outside the setting.
The Parents Committee
The Preschool is a charity and therefore has to be run by a committee and without these parents the Preschool could not be run. The committee are parents who volunteer to be elected to act as trustees for the Preschool. They stand for election at the Annual General meeting in October. The roles we have are Chairman, Vice Chair, Treasurer and Secretary as well as general committee members. The committee meet at least once a term to discuss all matters of policy, fundraising, and administration. The more parents who are willing to be actively involved the better it is for the Preschool. It is your chance to directly shape, and contribute to your child’s education, so please get involved. Please see a member of the Committee for details of our next meeting.

Chair Secretary Treasurer
We only have one general member at this time, Hannah Gush. General members attend the meetings and help at our fundraising events. We also have a number of parents who help us out with marketing and fundraising as and when they have the time.
As with any charitable organisation fund raising is essential, in order to function we need more money than we receive from the government each year.
We have an annual Easter Fayre, Harvest Festival and Christmas Concert, as well as other events throughout the year, so please look out for these events and give them your full support.
