As the Pre-school is a charity, it’s imperative that the Cold Ash Pre-School Committee maintain high levels of fundraising activities. Our fees are low compared to many other local/private settings, and we want to keep them this way! Fundraising enables us to increase our offerings to all our our Pre-schoolers, whilst maintaining low-level fees. All funds raised by the Committee help us to make improvements to the setting, replace equipment, regenerate the children’s play areas, take the children on trips, have end of term parties, and much more.  

Details of all future fundraising events can be found on our Uniform and Events page.

You can help the Pre-school update the current outdoor equipment and entire play space through donating at The Good Exchange. https://app.thegoodexchange.com/project/12230/cold-ash-pre-school/cold-ash-pre-school-outdoor-playspace
