First Steps is a Community Pre-school which means it is a registered charity and is run by an elected committee made up of the parents of children who attend the group and First Steps staff.

The committee is elected at the pre-school AGM and consists of 3 officers and other parents.

We oversee the running of the pre-school and organise fundraising events.

We usually try to meet once every half term. During our meetings, we come up with ideas for fundraising, plan forthcoming events and, with guidance from the staff, discuss the general running of the pre-school.

We try to focus on how to improve things so that First Steps is always getting better.

As well as raising funds, a big part of our job is spending them. We try to decide what the children, staff and parents will benefit from the most and allocate funds to it, whether it’s adding to the selection of toys, replacing equipment, buying new equipment or improving the building.

If you are interested in helping us make those decisions, please see our Getting Involved page. We can always do with the extra help and brainpower!
