As a not-for-profit charity we rely heavily on fundraising donations and grants to enable us to keep our fees low for our families and provide all the resources and educational equipment that our children need to thrive. Unfortunately we are struggling more than ever with under-funding from the Local Authority meaning we are losing money for every funded hour a child attends our setting.

It is becoming increasingly harder to break even at the end of the financial year.
Our fundraising team runs events throughout the year such as fetes, bake sales and workshops that help raise funds go directly back into the running of the preschool.
