If you’re interested in visiting one of our preschools please get in touch.
When a parish expresses interest in working with Launchpad, there are a number of possible ways forward. Depending on the skills they have on the Parochial Church Council, they might want to retain control completely, or they might want help or even to pass on control elsewhere. PCCs can simply be members of the Network. If, however, they would like to talk to us about their setting becoming directly run by Launchpad, we are happy to discuss the possibility. We would want to enter into a positive partnership with the parish so that the responsibilities are clear, open and transparent for the benefit of all.
We would be looking for the following, where possible:
Church links play a vital part in supporting, encouraging and promoting high-quality childcare in our settings
Our childcare environments
A strong community within the parish, supportive of the setting, its staff and its mission makes an important contribution to the well-being of children.
