The Committee is made up of a group of volunteers which consist of mainly parents whose children attend Dandelions / Snapdragons within the local areas.
The Committee are the trustees of the group and are the people entrusted with overall responsibility for ensuring that the group runs successfully in accordance with its aims. The Committee undertakes many tasks including recruiting and developing new staff, ensuring policies are up-to-date as well as ensuring bills/staff are paid and that proper accounting records are kept.
Committee meetings are held every four to six weeks where decisions concerning events, fees, policies and staff are made. The Annual General Meeting is held in November, where a Chair, Vice-Chair, Secretary, Treasurer and the general Committee Members are elected for the following year. Parents of new children are always encouraged to join the Committee.
We are also looking to set up a group known as 'Friends of Dandelions / Snapdragons' which will be a group of volunteers dedicated to fundraising for both pre-schools.
If you are interested in joining the Committee or the 'Friends of Dandelions or Snapdragons' group then please complete one of the documents below and return to us.
As a registered charity we keep an active fundraising schedule. This money enables us to buy extra equipment for use by the children, take on educational projects and generally enhance the learning environment. We accept donations from interested individuals and bodies, for which we are extremely grateful!
You too can help us raise funds in the course of your usual online shopping without it costing you a penny. Many online retailers will donate to charities and we are registered with a few services that will do this.
