At 345 Preschools, we recognise that Parents and Carers are the first and most important educators of their children. Our staff see themselves as co-workers with you in providing care and education for your child. 

There are multiple ways we invite Parents and Carers to be actively involved.

Parent Rota/ Helper

Each setting will provide a sign up rota for parents and carers to volunteer their time to join the children at a particular session(s) each term. 

This is a wonderful opportunity to volunteer your time, get hands-on and find out what our children get up to! 


Typically the point of contact between parents/carers and their setting managers. 

Usually the Parent Reps will manage fundraising activities and the parent WhatsApp group.

Parent Led Committee

The 345 Committee is run by parent volunteers. It is responsible for the overall management and organisation of the settings. This includes ensuring we fulfil all legal and financial obligations,  and operate efficiently and according to our constitution.

Parents formally join as directors of the not for profit company, and have a chance to actively contribute and influence the direction of the settings.

We organise an Annual General Meeting (AGM) annually which is open to all parents to learn about the past year activities and elect new Committee Members. 

Our accounts are publicly published on the Companies House website.
