Support/Fundraising Committee Meetings

Next meeting date - to be confirmed.

 

Usually held in Woolpit Bull every 6 - 8 weeks. It is a great way to get involved and new members are always welcome.


If you are interested in coming along to our next meeting, then please do! We would love to meet some new faces and make you welcome. If you can’t make the meetings but would like to know more please ask Sarah or Jackie.



Support/Fundraising Committee News


Please remember to come along to our next meeting if you can. We still need parents, grandparents, friends to come forward and help us. It is not a lifelong commitment and can be fun and really rewarding. Without fundraising the ARC really would struggle to survive.

Woolpit ARC Vision Statement

 

To provide a childcare centre that is not just very good, but excellent.

 

Where the children who come here have the care, fun and education that they need, provided by staff who are well trained and who have the imagination and ability

to give over and above the service expected.

 

Where family and friends can play a part in the service we provide and excellent partnership working is in place with Woolpit school.

 

Where the staff are fully involved in the day-to-day running of the childcare centre and work together as a team, understand that all have strengths and weaknesses and that all have value and worth.

 

Where staff behave in a manner that brings nothing less than credit to themselves

and the centre and where they will not compromise with ‘all right’ in the care they give, or in their behaviour towards colleagues.

 

Where children love to come and staff feel that we are the best place to work

and develop.

 

We want outside agencies, childcare centres, local authorities and staff in the childcare sector to see the Woolpit ARC as a benchmark to which they aspire bothas a childcare centre and employer.

 

 

History

 

Woolpit Arc was established as a Play Group in Woolpit Village Hall and then in the Woolpit Institute.

 

In 2007 we opened the wonderful purpose built play centre that you can see today

in the grounds of Woolpit Primary School.

 

“We are very proud of the Arc, our building is modern, well equipped and provides

 a fun and cosy place for the children to play and learn”

 Louise Everett, (Former Director)

 

 

Staff

 

Woolpit Arc is managed by Jackie and Sarah, who work alongside a dedicated and highly experienced team of play assistants

 

All our staff are qualified and most importantly, they are a lively, friendly and fun bunch of people!
