The Governing Body also known as the Board of Trustees is made up of parents and representatives from the community as well as members of partner agencies such as Health, Education and Better Start Bradford. The Board of Trustees are supported by our Finance Officer and Nursery Management.

Board Meetings take place a minimum of 4 times each year to review progress of its work and ensure the goals and finances of the organisation are maintained. Trustees are asked to make decisions that affect development of the nursery and its services.
