A Message from the Committee

Helper ChairA very warm welcome to all parents and carers from the current members of the committee who, like their children, may be experiencing a pre-school group for the first time. The following information explains how Toad Hall operates and how you can get involved:

How is Toad Hall run?

Toad Hall is a community pre-school, run by a committee of parents whose children attend the pre-school. Toad Hall has charitable status which means that all the money paid into the group is used to run the pre-school and buy new equipment. As Toad Hall is a charity we have to follow a written constitution which states a committee must be elected to run the pre-school. Failure to meet this requirement would result in the closure of Toad Hall. So we really depend on parents becoming involved.

About the Committee

Our committee is friendly and works closely with the staff to give our children the best care and experience at pre-school. Our Annual General Meeting, held in October, is where we elect our officers: Chair, Secretary and Treasurer. Other members can join at any time.

We meet once a month at the home of one of the committee members to discuss the running of the group and to make fundraising plans. Two of our major fundraisers are the Christmas Bazaar and the sponsored Summer Trike Ride; however, we welcome new ideas!

Join us

The majority of children leave us to go to school at the end of the summer term in July, however the committee is ever changing and we are always looking for new members.

Please come and have a chat with anyone from the committee or with Nicky, if you would like to know more. Being involved does not require any skills other than being a parent or carer, nor does it have to involve lots of your time. New members and new ideas are always very welcome. You will find the list of current committee members on the notice board inside Toad Hall, together with the Minutes of the last meeting and the date of the next meeting.

We hope your time at Toad Hall will be happy and we look forward to meeting you all, either at committee meetings or at the many events we hold during the year.
