We are governed by the Early Years Alliance constitution which means our parent-run committee must have 3 officers (Chair, Secretary & Treasurer) and between 2 and 9 additional members. If there are not enough parents to make up the committee, then we would be regarded as non-constitutional and be forced to close. Download a copy of an example constitution here. Please ask if you would like to see the original.
The committee support the day to day running of Chestnuts, including ensuring the building is safe inside and out and is well maintained. Committee and staff work with Wokingham Borough Council, Ofsted and the Charity Commission to ensure we are meeting our educational, legal and financial obligations. We organise fundraising events for the Pre-school to provide additional resources to maintain our wonderful setting.
