News and Who's Who

Who's Who at Smalley Pre-School

We are a not-for-profit charity Pre-School run by a committee of volunteers. The committee are elected by the parents of the children who attend our setting and they work closely with staff to ensure the best interests of the children are met. The elections take place at our Annual General Meeting. This is open to the parents of all of the children attending our setting. We would welcome parental involvement on the committee and rely on this support to be able to run the Pre-School.
