Pippin Pre-School


Pippin is a committee-run pre-school. Parents elect a committee, which employs the staff and oversees the financial planning for the year ahead. Pre-School fees and government nursery funding cover staff salaries and day-to-day expenses whilst the acquisition of learning materials and equipment is mainly met by committee fund-raising. The committee represents Pippin at community events throughout the year, including the steam and country fair in May and the Christmas fete in December.

Our Annual General Meeting is held in October, at which time the committee is reformed for the following year. All parents are encouraged to attend and to become involved in the decision-making processes for the pre-school.

Joining our Committee is a great way to become involved in your child’s education and meet other parents, particularly if you are new to the area. We meet once a month to discuss business matters and plan fundraising events throughout the year. If you are interested in joining our committee please contact our chairperson via email at pippincommittee@gmail.com
