The pre-school is a not-for-profit charity, which means that any profit we do make is put straight back into the pre-school. Unfortunately, due to being under funded by the local authority for the 15 hours, meaning that we actually lose money for every funded hour a child attends the setting, it is becoming increasingly hard to break even, let alone make a profit, which is why our fundraising activities are of such huge importance to us.
The money that is raised and donated is used in a variety of different ways, including;
- Paying for the use of the scout hut
- Buying arts and craft materials
- Purchasing new toys and learning resources
- Buying new books
- The purchase of larger items like our new ‘wellie’ and storage sheds
We are exceptionally grateful to everyone that supports us so generously, from other village organisations like the Rotherfield and Mark Cross Bonfire Society, to our wonderful families who buy cakes and support our social events.
