The Committee At Teynham Pre-School

 We will be holding our AGM in October 2020 as our usual one in MARCH had to be cancelled due to COVID 19 if you are interested in joining the committee then please talk to Kelly or Nadine we are always keen to have new parents on board. 


Chair: Nadine Kemp

Vice Chair: Kirsty Taylor 

Treasurer:  Annabel Smith (Jarman)

Secretary:  Lindsey Staden

Members: Kelly Southern (Swan), Gary Wade, Lyndsay Gilbert, Gemma Robbins, Myfanwy Perkins 


As a registered charity, the pre-school is governed and run by a committee consisting largely of parents and carers of children within the setting (although this isn’t always the case and some have enjoyed their time so much they continued their role well after their child left us for school)!  The committee is responsible for all legal aspects of the business as well as ensuring the day to day running of the pre-school adheres to all current legislation.  It organises all the fundraising events which supports the setting’s financial health and undertakes any work necessary to maintain and upkeep the facility, ensuring the safety and security of all who use it.  To join this very important group of people, please speak to the manager – new members are always needed! 

The committee is made up of various roles which include  the Committee chair, Vice chair, Treasurer, Secretary as well as general committee officers that do not have a specific role.  We ask that willing parents sign up for at least one year (March to March) to avoid disruption.   In order for the charity’s accounts to be accepted and the new committee to be voted on to act on it’s behalf, parents are required to attend the AGM as a quorum is legally required.  This is usually held in March and the actual date will be listed in the “Dates & Events” tab.  Failure to achieve one would result in the committee responsible for the running of the pre-school to not be elected and therefore the setting would have to close so please do try to attend.  This usually occurs shortly after dropping off time and lasts no more than half an hour.



Feb 2019 

We are busy preparing for our AGM in March, we will send letters of the time and venue nearer the time. We have welcomed a few new members to the team which is fantastic, if you are interested then please do step forward and let us know. We are looking at new ways to fundraise this year so please keep a look out for upcoming community events that everyone can get involved with. 

November 2018 

The committee are holding a family coffee morning on Wednesday 7th November 2018, come along meet the committee and meet other faces from around the village. Have the opportunity to make new friends and eat cake :) Everyone is welcome and if your child is not in Pre -School this day then bring them along as well. We will provide refreshments and cake, we just need you !!! 

More information will be provided on the leaflet that will be in your tray and posters around the setting or of course just ask. 

We hope to see lots of you there. 

October 2018 

We have already had our first meeting this term to dicuss fundraising and our annual Christmas bazaar and nativity. We brainstormed some ideas and discussed how we can make the grotto even bigger and better this year!!! If you would like to come on board and help us with our fundraising efforts then please do come and either talk to Kelly or one of the committee who's details are on the parents notice board in the corridoor. We look forward to sharing more with you as we know.  


March 2018 - 

Thank you to the supportive parents that turned up to ensure that our AGM could run, your time is appreciated and meant that there was no distruption to the running of the setting, the above committee members have stepped onto the committee, and Leanne, Katrina and Lorraine stepped down from their role after being on the committee for the last few years. We would like to thank all our parents that support the setting. :) 

February 2016 

With the AGM fast approaching in March we would like to ask if any of our parents, friends or family would be interested in joining the committee. Without a committee we can not legally operate and the Pre -school would have to close while we recruited a new committee, if you have a little spare time you can give then this would be appreciated. 


December 2014:

Last weekend we had our spectacular Christmas Bazaar and Nativity. It was a hugh sucess and we managed to raise £1466.06, this money is going straight back into the Pre -School and we are going to be looking at developing a reading area in the outside area. The Pre - School children also made us so proud with their annual Nativity, it really got us all into the christmas spirit. We are going to have a well earned break now, but look out for more fundraising in January 2015. If you have any ideas please let us know, new ideas are always welcome. 

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from the committee :) 


November 2014 

We are very busy prepairing for the Christmas party, Bazaar and Nativity performance, if you could help in anyway that would be greatfully recieved. Maybe you know someone that could dontate a prize for the raffle , or could you give up a few hours to come and help us set up the grotto and hall ready for the bazaar any help you can offer would be a great asset during this busy period.


July 2014

Would you like to see exactly what the committee are responsible for?  Perhaps you might like to raise questions with us or simply have suggestions that might help us.  If so, we are planning a meet and greet coffee afternoon at the start of the new school year so look out for more details.
