Our Committee

Our setting is a charity managed by a volunteer management committee. Members are elected at an annual AGM and are generally parents or guardians of children who currently use or have used Merry Go Round facilities. The committee consists of 3 officers and up to 12 members and make up the registered person with Ofsted.


The committee is responsible for:

  • Managing the settings finances

  • Employing and managing staff

  • Making sure that the setting has, and works to, policies that help it to provide a high quality service

  • The care and maintenance of the property and the equipment

  • Making sure that the setting works in partnership with children's parents.


The Annual General Meeting is open to the parents of all the children who attend the setting. It is our shared forum for looking back over the previous years activities and shaping the coming year.


The committee are also responsible for fundraising, which is essential to the viability of the group and we are always looking for new members to help with ideas and suggestions.

As a voluntary managed setting, we also depend on the good will of parents and their involvement to keep going.
