History of Pre-school

Rhode community pre-school ltd was set up in May 2000 by a voluntary committee of community members to provide a pre-school service to parents and children of the parish and surrounding areas.

The pre-school has been run by the voluntary committee since 2000.The service has proved extremely successful over the years and numbers have increased.

In the year 2000 the Midland Health Board Lottery Funding made the project possible through their financial assistance in the construction of an extension to an existing building and assistance towards some equipment to the amount of £15,000. The building is owned by the parish under a legal entity called Rhode Parish Enterprise Association Ltd. Rhode Community Pre-school rents the premises from RPEA Ltd, and it works closely with this company to provide valuable community services.

Rhode Community Preschool applied for further funding under the National Childcare Investment Programme (NCIP) 2006 -2010 Childcare Subvention Scheme and were been accepted for this funding.  The regulations for receipt of funding state the Organisation must be a limited company, with at least two directors.  The committee met in Jan 2009 and agreed to set up this company, using the services of Nevan O Shaughnessy Solicitors and Auditors John M Shanahan and Co, Mr Pat Swaine and Mrs Kathleen Swaine are directors with Mrs Mary Dillon company secretary.
