SKIPS pre-school is a registered charity and a non-profit making organisation. It is run by a parent-led voluntary committee comprising Chairperson, Treasurer, Secretary and general committee members. As a community based, voluntary managed setting, we depend on the goodwill of parents and their involvement to keep going. Joining the committee is also an excellent way of getting involved with your child’s early education!
Committee members are elected at the AGM, normally held in July, but anyone wishing to join the committee at another time will be very welcome. All committee members are subject to DBS (Police) and Ofsted checks. Please speak to a member of the existing committee for more information via this email address: email@example.com
The committee normally meets once per month and is responsible for the effective running of SKIPS pre-school, such as managing the setting’s finances, employing and managing the pre-school’s staff, ensuring the setting has, and works to, policies that help it provide a high quality service, and making sure the setting works in partnership with the children’s parents.
I am a married mum of 2 children under 5 years old, I currently work for Thames Valley Police and have done for the past 15 years, in my spare time I enjoy running.
I joined the SKIPS committee as my 4 year old loves going to this setting and I wanted to give some of my time ensuring that SKIPS will continue to thrive for many years to come. I have volunteered to take over the Treasurer Role as this is a good opportunity to learn new skills.
I have been on the committee since November 2018. I have experience in the field of programme manager and general HR. My role in the committee involves helping carry out tasks to make sure the statutory responsibilities of the Early Years Setting are met as well as administrative tasks such as contributing to the decision making and helping organise fundraising events for SKIPS Pre-School.
