Working together for your children
Ridgeway Under Fives Management Committee
Ridgeway Under Fives is managed by the Management Committee who work with the staff and parents to provide the setting.
The Management Committee is elected annually at the groups’ September AGM. Committee members are volunteers and include parents and members of the local community. Areas of responsibility include business planning, financial management (including fundraising and grant applications), admissions, staffing and the fulfilling of all legal obligations on the group.
New committee members are always welcome.
The committee and staff consult with parents/carers on a variety of issues and we encourage parents/carers to put forward any ideas and requests. Information for parents is displayed on the front desk and on the parent’s notice board. Parents are also given a newsletter every half term which informs them of upcoming events, general information, holiday dates etc.
Volunteers, Parent helpers and Students
Volunteers and parent helpers are welcome to help out at pre-school sessions in accordance with pre-school policy. We are also happy to accept student workers, working towards NVQ 2 and NVQ 3 (or equivalent). The setting has a policy in place for student workers, and does not include them in our adult- child ratios.
