The Ark Committee:

The Ark is a registered charity and not-for-profit organisation run by an elected committee of trustees, which ensures that major decision making is in the hands of the parents who use the goup.  The trustees are responsible for reviewing both policy and practice, and for the employment of staff.

Our aims are:

To enhance the development and education of children in a parent-involving community based group.

To offer good quality, affordable childcare.

To provide a caring, safe, secure and stimulating environment for children from 0 years to the end of primary school age.

To work within a framework that ensures equality of opportunity for all children and families.

Current Trustees:

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 trustees 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.

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.  We need all our parents involved and value your help with fundraising events.
