Our Committee

Wye Under Fives is a registered Charity and the running of our pre-school is supported by our volunteer Trustee Committee.  

The committee is responsible for ensuring that the charity complies with the rules in its constitution, charity law, and any other relevant regulations that govern the work of the pre-school. 

The Committee also help to organise fundraising events throughout the year.  Past events include a Christmas Bazaar, a Quiz, Cake Sales, and Summer Picnic.  All fundraising proceeds are used to purchase new equipment and toys for the children.

We would always welcome new members to the committee, whether you can only help with the fundraising or wish to become a full trustee member, its a great way to support your pre-school.
