Management Committee

One of the many benefits of a not for profit community based children’s centre is the opportunity for parents and staff to manage the centre together.

The Centre is an incorporated body run by a Management Committee consisting of the Director, Assistant Director, Staff representative, Parent representatives and local community members.

The Committee is responsible for the decisions concerning the Centre’s philosophy, finances, educators & staffing, quality of care, maintenance of grounds and building, fees, budget allocations and liaising with other community groups.

Management committee meetings are documented and a summary of the minutes are kept and available for families to access.

We aim to foster mutual support among the Management Committee, Educators, Staff and families. We believe the Management Committee should act in accordance with the philosophy at all times.
