Parents are encouraged to make a small weekly donation of £2 to the Centre’s Toy Fund. These funds are used to help pay for baking ingredients, outings & trips, special events & parties, additional resources and specialist to work with your children e.g. Dance teacher/ football coaches.
In addition we have larger fund raising events throughout the year. We need your support to make these as successful as possible.
Toy Fund Committee
Funds raised through Toy Fund donations and other activities are overseen by the Toy Fund Committee. Membership of the Committee includes staff and parent representatives and is chaired by the Head of Centre. The current membership can been seen on the Centre’s website.
The Toy Fund Committee has an agreed formal constitution. Accounts are kept for all monies collected and are available for inspection at any time. The accounts are audited by an external, independent auditor annually.
Giving your views and suggestions
The easiest way to get involved in the life of the centre is to talk to us and tell us what we do well and what we could do better. There are many ways you can do this throughout the year including completing questionnaires, taking part in consultation events, commenting on your child’s profile, completing a comment/suggestion form or talking to us directly. We’re always happy to hear your views and will keep you informed as to how we use them.
