Get Involved

Join our committee

We’d love to hear from you at any time if you would like to get involved and join the committee. Getting involved is a great way to learn more about the pre-school and to get to know the staff and other parents. Our committee positions are varied and it could be a great way to use the skills you already have, develop new ones and add to your CV! You can get involved even if you only have a little time to spare. Speak to one of our staff or committee members.
