About us

We would like to offer you and your child a warm welcome to Willow Tree Pre-school.

The pre-school was set up over 20 years ago and we are run as an independent charity.

Our staff members are highly qualified in the care and education of young children and the pre-school is run by the manager and administrator with the support of the staff and a committee of parents.

The pre-school is a registered charity which abides by a constitution set out by the Pre-school Learning Alliance and agreed by the Charities Commission.
Predominately this means that a committee which is made up from un- paid representatives (parents or others that have an interest in the organisation) hold a position. The pre-school committee is not the same as a school parent-teacher association or `Friends’ group, which mainly involves raising funds. Its role is more like that of school governors because it has important legal responsibilities.

It’s important to understand that without a committee, the pre-school cannot operate.

It is essential that the committee reflects the opinions and concerns of parents whose children are currently attending the pre-school. Please think about joining the committee when a position becomes available and please attend the AGM, held in the autumn term every year.
This is a very simple and straight forward meeting which takes ½ hour of your time. You will then be kept up to date on the organisation of the pre-school and need to attend meetings which are arranged approximately 4 times a year.
