Marketing and advertising the services of the pre-school
Overseeing and resolving any maintenance and Health and Safety issues

Who We Are
Currently the committee is made up of parents and village volunteers, ensuring that the key decisions are in the hands of people who want to help support and provide the highest possible standard of childcare in the setting.
Our committee meetings are generally once a term and are a brilliant way to have a say in how the pre-school is run and get involved with giving something back to our amazing community. It is a chance to get understand what happens “behind-the-scenes”, as well as a chance to socialise and meet some great people.
Our Current Operational Team is:
Mili-Anne Bhatia – (Chair)
Hulme Accountants – (Treasurer)
Kirsty Windsor – (Secretary)
The members of the committee are elected at our Annual General Meeting (AGM), and are all DBS checked. New members are always welcome to join the committee. And you don’t have to be a parent to join – you could be a guardian, a grand-parent, or just a member of the community who would be happy to donate their time and skills to support our local pre-school.
If you are interested in joining the committee, we would love to hear from you and would love you to join our team.
Sutton St James is more than a learning environment but an extended part of a child’s family where staff,
committee, parents and children learn and grow together in a fun, safe, nurturing environment.
