Our partnership with parents

Pirton Pre-School recognises that parents are the first and most important educators of their children. All the staff see themselves as co-workers with you in providing care and education for your child. There are many ways in which parents take part in making the Pre-School a welcoming and stimulating place for children and parents such as:


Sharing their own special interests with the children


Becoming part of the management committee of the Pre-School. All parents become voting members of Pirton Pre-School and are expected to attend at least the Annual General Meeting (AGM)


Exchanging knowledge about their children’s needs, activities, interests and progress with the staff


Helping with and supporting fundraising events


Joining in community activities in which the Pre-School takes part


Building friendships with other parents in Pre-School

Communication with parents

Regular e-mails are sent to parents/carers detailing what activities we will be doing with the children, general news and useful dates for your diary. Information is also shared via our Facebook page.

I am mummy to four little ones – Matilda, 9, Jack, 7, Henry 5 and Archie 2. I have been a stay at home mum for nearly 10 years but before that was a History and Politics teacher in London secondary schools. I still keep my hand in by doing A Level and GCSE exam marking each year. I have been on the Pre-School Committee for a couple of years now and am pleased to do a small part in helping such a fantastic place. xxx

I am a mum of two – Jess (4) currently attends Pirton Pre-School, and Ben (6) did so before moving on to “big” school.  I moved to Shillington from Greenwich in 2015 and joining the Pre-School Committee has helped me to quickly become part of the wonderful local community.  I am currently a stay-at-home mum, previously working as a Medical Communications Consultant in London.  I feel very fortunate that my children can attend such a friendly, caring and professional Pre-School and proud that I can be a small part of it by serving on the Committee.

I am a mummy to two bundles of fun, Henry (4) who is currently at Pre-School but will move on to school in September 2017 and Eliza (2) who is excited to start at Pre-School in September as soon as he leaves. Since moving to Pirton last Summer we’ve been made so welcome by all, especially the staff and parents at Pre-School so I really wanted to give something back and help out in any way I could. I really believe that our village Pre-School is a wonderful place for making friends, building confidence and having fun – parents as well as children!

As treasurer I am responsible for helping the Pre-School manage, control and authorise income and expenditure to ensure that the annual budgets can be achieved and that the financial security of the setting is maintained.

I am a qualified Chartered Accountant who currently works at Network Rail as a Senior Commercial Manager. I live in the village and my daughter Maya attended the Pre-School. She and her brother Ethan are now at the Main School.
