Haxby Playgroups is a registered charity and as such is governed by a committee comprised mainly of parent volunteers.  Your pre-school committee is responsible for the overall management and smooth-running of the setting. This can mean anything from organising a Christmas fundraising event to helping to recruit new staff members.

It can be lots of fun and really good way to get involved with your local community, meet new people and gain new skills.
