Management Committee

The Management Committee keeps an eye on the day-to-day activities of the Nursery.  This role contrasts with the Trustees who take care of strategic matters.  The Committee’s role is therefore generally very much more hands on.

They ensure that the Nursery nurtures children in a safe environment.

They do this by developing policies and modi operandi that meet or exceed Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Standards and other statutory requirements. They then make sure these are properly implemented, in part, by using Ofsted’s Self Evaluation Form (SEF) system.

But they have fun too!  It’s the Committee that has the all-important role of fund raising; organising Quiz Nights, Summer Barbecue and Auctions, Barn Dances and a host of other fun, fundraising activities over the years.  Without them we’d be hard pressed to afford all of our charitable activity.

Typically there is a core of members supported by Parent Representatives, Trustees and Staff.  They meet formally about a eight to ten times a year, usually in the Nursery after school or occasionally in the afternoon.

Non-parents are welcome to apply for a place on the Management Committee.  We particularly need people with childcare, medical or social care experience.

If you’re a current parent, why not become a Parent Representative and have a say in the running of the Nursery?

In any event, drop Tessa a line at tessa.rowland@sdn.org.uk

The full role of the Management Committee is detailed in ‘Management Committee: Standing Orders and Terms of Reference’ which can be found on our Useful Information page.
