The Kennford Playbox is run by a preschool committee made up of the parents and carers of children at the preschool for the benefit of the children attending. The committee organise all the fundraising activities throughout the year which enable us to purchase new equipment, tools and activities for the children.

A committee is formed in October of each year to run the pre-school supported by an experienced manager and an accounting clerk.

The committee employ the staff whose role it is to manage the day-to-day operation of the setting.

Without a committee Playbox cannot operate, we need continued support from parents and the community to keep us going.
