Old Dalby Preschool is a parent-committee led, registered charity rather than a private childcare business. The preschool was started back in the 70’s by a group of enthusiastic parents and was set in the village hall. It has developed, over the years, into the preschool we have today in its own purpose built premises and very much part of the community.
Being a parent led setting means we, as parents, have a unique opportunity to be involved in these important years of our children’s development through the committee.
Obviously, we as parents are not experts in child care, Ofsted or the Early Years Foundation curriculum. We therefore leave it to the qualified staff to manage the setting and care for the children! Our role is to contribute to the decisions about the development of the setting and to fund raise for all the “extras” which make the difference to the children’s experience at preschool. We are always looking for new members to join our committee.
