Our pre-school has a Committee which deals with matters of governance, finance and recruitment. Simon Lewis acts as the Committee Chair.Committee meetings take place once a term, with extra fundraising meetings being called if necessary.
Parents are actively encouraged to become part of the Committee. Working in partnership ensures your child’s first educational experiences outside of home are rich and fulfilling.
A primary function of the pre-school Committee is fundraising. We are a charity pre-school and depend on fundraising to purchase up to date resources for our children. Parental involvement is vital to the success of enjoyable fundraisers, like our Scooter Scampers, Ark in the Park sponsored walks and luxury Christmas hampers!
I am the Chair of the Ark Pre-school Committee which oversees the direction, staff, facilities and finances of the pre-school. I am a pharmacist and work part-time for the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency as well as working part-time at CityCoast Church. I am married to Ruth and we have 4 adult children, two of whom are married. We enjoy walking and visiting historical buildings and gardens.
