Checkendon Pre-School C.I.O Managing Committee.

  • Chairperson: Kate Pullan
  • Treasurer: Emily Hines
  • Secretary: TBC
  • Committee Members/Trustees: Hannah Pivonka

Checkendon Pre-School C.I.O is a registered charity run by parents.

The Pre-School has recently transformed to a Charitable Incorporated Association which means, unlike many similar Pre-Schools, committee members are protected from personal financial liability. Regular meetings take place attended by the committee and staff in which all changes, improvements and decisions are discussed. The committee is always interested in new members, the Pre-School cannot run without one, so please if you are interested contact a member of staff or committee.
