Saplings preschool is managed by a committee of volunteer trustees.

The Committee meets at least once a term, and is responsible for the management of the Playgroup, fee levels, and additional fundraising activities.

It’s a fantastic way to help the community and to get involved in your child’s pre-school experience. A new Committee is formed at the start of each school year at the AGM (Annual General Meeting), but parents are welcome to join at any time!

Please contact us, or a member of staff, if you would like to join. You do not have to be a parent of a child attending the setting, and we welcome volunteers with a wide range of experience.
