Management and Administration

The playgroup is run by an elected committee, which ensures that major decision-making is in the hands of the parents who use the group. The committee is responsible for reviewing both policy and practice, and for the employment and appraisal of members of staff. Our Annual General Meeting usually takes place in September. This is when the committee is elected for the following year. Date and time of this meeting is advertised in the Centre. It is essential for continuity of the Otley Under Fives Centre that Parents/partners/carers attend.
