Our Team

We have a team of nine dedicated 'Blue Ladies' as we are fondly known because of our blue uniform, and have all worked at Mereworth Pre-School for many years. We are now starting to see the second generation of children coming to us!

Our collective childcare experience spans over one hundred years and the level of commitment helps to create a highly caring and fun environment for all our children that attend Mereworth Pre-School.  

This wonderful team is led by Managers, Jenny Thompson and Claire Dolley.  Jenny, has been working at Mereworth Pre-School for twenty years, and is NVQ Level 4 qualified in Childcare and Education. Claire has worked in the childcare sector for 30 years and ran her own childcare business.  Claire joined us a few years ago and thoroughly enjoys working alongside this professional team and seeing the children progress and thrive.

Our Committee

Our Pre-school is a registered charity and the running of our successful, friendly and happy setting would not be possible without the voluntary help and support of our parents and carers that form our committee.  We cannot operate without a committee.

Our committee is made up of parents and carers who, together with the Pre-School Manager, make the major decisions about how the setting is run and also act as trustees of the Pre-School charity. The committee ensures that the Pre-School complies with all of our constitutional, legal and financial obligations and that all decisions which affect our setting are made effectively, are based on consensus and represent all parties fairly. Members of the committee also help to raise funds, organise social events and to enable parental involvement.

Committee elections are held each year at the AGM and regular meetings take place to which all Pre-School members are invited. 

We think it’s a good opportunity to be involved in our Pre-School, to meet other parents, to develop new friendships and to have fun! If you would like to join us at a committee meeting you would be very welcome.
