The Ark Committee:

The Ark is a registered charity and not-for-profit organisation run by parents in the form of a committee, ably assisted by a dedicated management team. We aim to provide a place of care that parents can trust in and rely upon, in which staff can develop and our children can have fun, explore and grow into confident young people.

Current Committee Members:

A full list and pictures of members are displayed in the Ark reception area.

Why not join us? We are always keen to welcome new members to our committee – the only real requirement is a passion for helping the Ark to thrive and continue to provide the high quality childcare of which we are very proud. We come from all walks of life and meet once per half term, but there is always the option to ‘dial in’ if you can’t make it to the meetings.  Click here for a more information on what’s involved.

No time for a committee but still keen to help? We are always on the lookout for willing volunteers to help with fundraising events; provide raffle prizes; help with the garden or run an activity/talk with the children. Speak to the nursery manager,  if you have any ideas or skills to offer.
