St Leonard’s Pre-school is a not-for-profit charity run by a volunteer committee of parents and staff or the Pre-school, for the benefit of the local community. The committee is responsible for all aspects of running the pre-school, and meet regularly each half term to discuss all matters relating to this. Below is a list of the current management committee.  Please do feel free to talk to any member of the committee if you wish to discuss the running or management of Pre-school.
