Polstead Preschool is run by Parental Committee. This means that all parents are involved in its running. There are many advantages to this arrangement:

  • a parental involvement and help keep our fees low
  • we are a non profit organisation, so any income generated helps in keeping our excellent staff and providing children with suitable toys and materials
  • since all parents may help in the setting, we can all see how our children spend their mornings and get to know their friends

Involvement in the Parents’ Committee gives parents the opportunity to decide how they want their children cared for and educated, something they would not be able to do in a private nursery or school.

Each parent is welcome to help out during preschool sessions once their child has settled.
