Our setting has transitioned on July 6th 2020, from an unincorporated  charity, run by a Committee, to an incorporated charity (CIO) and as such is overseen by a volunteer management of Trustees.

We have completed our registration with the Charities Commission and Ofsted.

Our members were elected by the parents of the children who attend our setting. The elections took place at our Annual General Meeting in October 2019.

Our Trustees are Cliff Marsh, Abi Potter, Katherine Chapman and Darren Wannell.
