Puddleducks is run by an elected committee of parents in consultation with staff. Committee members are all volunteers responsible for discussing policies, procedures, practice and for the employment of staff.  This is a responsible and rewarding position that helps parents and carers to be involved in making decisions about their child’s pre-school.

Parents and carers are encouraged to join the committee and attend the meetings. Staff will also be able to tell you when the next meeting is scheduled for.

Every September the committee holds its AGM which parents and carers are also encouraged to attend. This is when new members are elected to the committee. The date for this is advertised in advance.

The current management committee members, and their responsibilities, are as follows:

  • Claire Wilkins-Davies – Chair
  • Erik Mackie – Secretary
  • Lucy Cowley – Treasurer
  • Harriet Turton, Danielle Bates – Fundraisers
  • Joel Summerfield – Technical Support

All members of the preschool committee are required to have a DBS and EY2 completed.
