Our Committee

How does it work?

Layer Preschool is a registered charity and committee run preschool. Committee members are volunteer parents, past and present, who work closely with the Preschool Manager, Office Manager and staff. Together they make decisions regarding all aspects of preschool and have a responsibility to ensure that decisions made are in the best interest of the preschool, the children and the families we serve.

The committee are responsible for organising our fundraising events throughout the year. All proceeds raised by the committee are invested into toys and equipment for the children.

Being on the committee is a rewarding role and allows you to become involved in shaping the future of your child’s preschool. In order for us to continue to develop, we need new parents with passion and ideas to join our team. If you are interested in becoming a committee member then please email us on info@layerpreschool.co.uk or speak to a member of our team.
