Stepping Stones Pre-School is a registered charity (Registered Charity number 1083646). We do receive Government funding which goes towards the hall rent, heating bills and staff wages, but we also rely on grants and donations to help pay for these ongoing running costs. Fundraising enables us to buy new resources and equipment for the children.
We recognise that fundraising events enable the children, younger and older siblings, as well as family and friends to become involved in our Pre-School community. In the past we have held various fundraising events such as School Holiday Craft Sessions; Easter Duck Race; Christmas Fair; Coin Trail; Quiz Night; Table Top Sale; Sponsored Bounce etc. Please keep an eye out for our upcoming events in our Upcoming Events ticker on the Home Page. Also do look out for our Committee Meeting dates and come along if you think that you could offer any fundraising ideas or experience, or speak to a member of staff during session times.
We are very grateful to the following local organisations who have kindly donated to us in the past year;
- Busy Bee Cafe, Moorland Road
- Bath Bakery
- Planet Beauty
- The Oldfield Park Bookshop
- My Sweet Cupcakery
- Banables Butchers
