Duxford Preschool operates as a charitable incorporated organisation and is run by a voluntary management committee, primarily parents and carers, who are the charity’s Trustees. The Trustees are responsible for the effective running of the setting as a whole and deal with matters such as HR, recruitment, finance, marketing and business development.
Trustee roles include a chairperson, treasurer, secretary and up to nine other members. Elections are held annually in September at the AGM and meetings take place at the beginning of every half term. The preschool is legally required to have a management committee and without it the setting could not operate, so we are heavily reliant on the goodwill and dedication of our volunteers.
We also have committee members who do not take on the formal responsibilities of Trustees, but help out with fundraising and organising events. We have a regular calendar of community events that we get involved with, including the Duxford Advent Market, Open Farm Sunday, school fetes, and social events.
Becoming either a committee member or Trustee is a great way to meet new people, influence how your child’s preschool is managed and learn new skills. There are different ways to contribute and you can choose to give as much or as little time as you can spare. Best of all, you do not require any previous experience to make a difference. If you are interested in joining the committee or would like some further information please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
