When parents and carers are actively involved in their children’s learning and development, children achieve more. Charitable childcare providers benefit children by closely involving parents and carers in the day-to-day running of the provision, its funding, and its overall management.
Mudeford Wood Preschool is a registered charity (Reg No. 1042276) which is managed by a committee of volunteers nominated by the parents and carers, who together form the trustees of the charity, and take the role of the Ofsted ‘registered person’. As well as benefiting children, volunteering offers parents and carers the opportunity to meet other parents, get more involved in the community and widen their social network, update existing skills and learn new ones.
Each year we hold an Annual General Meeting where we update parent and carers on the activities at the preschool over the previous year. It is also an opportunity for you to ask questions of the committee and suggest ideas for the future running of the preschool. The committee is nominated at the AGM and we always welcome new members - the preschool needs you in order to stay running!
