This letter is notice that the Annual General Meeting of Ridings Pre-school will be held on:
Monday 18th October 2021 at 19.00hours
As a registered Charity it is a constitutional requirement that we hold an annual general meeting for all our families to share information on the management of the pre-school and to be able to contribute to the next 12 months by volunteering support as a Trustee on our committee

We would really like as many people as possible to attend the meeting to hear about what Ridings Pre-school has achieved over the last year. It is also an opportunity for you to contribute by making comments, suggestions or raising items they would like to discuss.
As a setting that aims to be fully inclusive your view or opinions are very welcome and help us develop a provision that meets the needs of all children.
It provides an opportunity to meet other parents and staff, both of which have been limited over the past year with the Covid restrictions.
If you would like to volunteer on the committee or to help with fundraising please put your name down on the information sheet displayed on the board at pre-school. Please remember that the pre-school cannot deliver teaching and care to children without your support.
The agenda for the meeting is as follows:

  1. Chair’s Report
  2. Treasurer’s Report
  3. Early Years Manager’s Report
  4. Election of committee 2021/22
  5. Date of next committee meeting
  6. Any other discussion or comments

NUTS – Ridings Pre-School is presently a nut free zone. Can we ask that you do not send in nuts or foods that contain nuts including Nutella, chicken satay, peanut butter etc.

Letters of Help – As a pre-school we are reliant on our families to support us. We recently sent out a letter asking for you to identify ways in which You can help. So far we have had just 3 returned – Can you complete yours and return this week.
We do need all your help in order that we can keep our costs down.

Dog Poo – This morning we have needed to clean the playground of dog poo. Can we ask that you check shoes and wheels of scooters and pushchairs before coming on to the playground to avoid bringing it into the setting. Thank You.

Forest School– As the weather has now chilled off considerably we would like you to send clothing appropriate for the weather so that the children can continue to enjoy these sessions and keep warm and dry.

Bags2school– We have arranged a collection date for December 6th. Rather than taking your unwanted clothes, shoes, bags to the charity shop, hang onto them and help us to raise money for the pre-school. More details to follow nearer the time.

We are looking to have a small display of houseplants for the children to care for. Do you have anything you are able to donate to us. If so bring it in in a suitable plant pot. This is new for us and we’re not sure how good we will be at keeping them successfully!!!!

Coughs, Colds and Covid – Many of our children have runny noses and cold symptoms at present. Before you send your child with cold symptoms can you check their temperature and make sure that the cough isn’t symptomatic of Covid.
If you give your child any form of medicine prior to bringing them to pre-school can you notify us on arrival as we need to record this information.

Thank You
