Little Raindrops is a charity which relies on parent and carer volunteers to manage it via the Committee. The charity is run by the committee members who are mostly volunteers from parents of children who attend the setting. The committee members are the charity trustees of the setting and together they are responsible for the overall management and smooth-running of the setting as well as its legal obligations. The committee is also the employer of staff in the setting and also has responsibilities for things like managing accounts, risk assessments, ensuring the setting follows health and safety as well as many other varied tasks and duties.

The setting staff are employed by the charity and are responsible for the day to day operation of the setting.  In reality they take on many of the tasks that fall within the remit of the committee but it still remains the responsibility of the committee to ensure that they have been carried out. The committee is also responsible for organising fundraising events throughout the year to support the ever increasing costs of running the setting. Please check out the Newsletters / Events page for future fundraising activities.

The committee is made up of a chair, vice chair, secretary and treasurer as well as other elected members (not less than 2 nor more than 9).  The committee can also decide to co-opt up to 3 further members.  Not less than 60% of the committee members shall be parents/guardians of children attending the setting.

Finally, if we do not have enough committee members then the charity, and therefore the setting, will not be able to run. If you can spare a couple of hours a month (maximum) to attend Committee meetings and are interested in getting involved in your child’s early years setting then please come along to our next meeting or complete the form below to register your interest or to ask for more information.

Thank you for your interest and continued support
