Breaston Pre-School CIO is a registered charity (charity number 1194534) and a not-for-profit. We rely on fundraising by our Trustees, staff, and Pre-School families to purchase essential resources and new equipment for the benefit of the children at Pre-School.

We are currently (2022-23) fundraising to replace our motorised canopy in the playground.
Previously, we have raised funds to provision and train staff for our Forest School, replace our storage shed, purchase new outdoor resources like sand and water tables, and new gardening equipment.

Breaston Pre-School CIO holds a valid gambling license.

Fundraising Committee
Breaston Pre-School Fundraising Committee is a group of parents who get together roughly once a term to organise fundraising for Pre-School. There’s no minimum commitment, and we’re looking for as many different people as possible to join – whether you’re full of ideas or just looking to help out as and when you can at events, we need you! We have a WhatsApp group too, so you can still help out even if you can’t make it to meetings.

If you are interested in joining the fundraising committee, please email Kayleigh

20/10/21 – Breaston Pre-School would like to say a huge THANK YOU to MJA Financial Solutions for their generous donation of £500!

MJA Financial Solutions are based in Long Eaton and provide a range of financial services, from mortgage advice to insurance and critical illness cover. Sarah, Manager and Trustee of Breaston Pre-School, used MJA Financial Services recently to find the best mortgage. Sarah said “Mark of MJA Financial Solutions was extremely helpful, very attentive, and nothing was ever too much trouble! I felt like he found me the best mortgage deals, and gave considered and unbiased advice.”

As well as being an experienced financial adviser, Mark is also the uncle of one of last year’s school leavers. We simply cannot thank him enough for this donation, which the trustees have decided will be spent replacing our Pre-School laptops.
