Egerton Pre-School is dependent on parental/carer involvement and pre-school is subject to inspection by government agencies. The Committee is required to ensure that pre-school meets the statutory welfare requirements as set out in the E.Y.F.S. framework.  This statutory framework has been written to ensure that we are pursuing “best practice” and adhering to welfare requirements and safeguarding. Therefore adopting a happy and safe environment in which the children can grow develop and learn during their pre-school years.
