Parents

The Pre-school is managed by the Little Acorns committee made up of Pre-school parents.  Members are elected annually at the AGM in October to which all parents are invited. If you would like to join the Committee or can offer a service that would be of benefit to the Pre-School, please contact the Manager on  littleacorns@weycyp.org.uk

Helpers’ Rota –

Children thrive best when parents are actively involved in their education, therefore we encourage parents to take an active part in the running of the Pre-school.   There is a  Parent Rota Form  on the notice board and parents can sign up for a session if they would like to come in and help .  It is not unusual for your child to stay beside you for the greater part of the session when you are helping.

By helping at Pre-school the parent, the Pre-school and the children all benefit in different ways.  The child benefits by seeing the interest the parent has in the group and how the parent is valued by the group. The child also feels special on that day and learns to share the parent or Carer with other children – shared experiences become talking points. The parent benefits by seeing their child amongst other similarly aged children and is reassured about what happens at Pre-school.  They feel they are contributing and working as a member of the team.  They feel able to offer new ideas for craft or play and have a chance to make new friends.  The group benefits from having an extra pair of hands which provides more time for them to talk and listen to the children.  It is beneficial to everyone to get to know the parent and to share experiences and ideas.
