The Universal (Funded Early Education) funding that most three and four year olds receive at our pre-school has effectively been frozen for over five years and no longer covers the actual cost of running sessions for the children who receive up to 15 free hours each week. Fundraising is therefore crucial to the pre-school to ensure that we can cover our basic running costs, pay for maintaining and repairing existing equipment and also fund new equipment and special projects for the children to learn from and enjoy.
The Pre-school committee, a group of volunteer parents, arranges a number of events throughout the year to raise funds. These include fayres, raffles, sponsored events and a range of other fun activities for the children, their families and the general public to enjoy. Please see our events page for more information.
