Our kindergarten was established by local community members over 70 years ago and it still managed by a volunteer parent committee today. As an independent, community-managed facility, all aspects of the kindergarten are managed by parent/community volunteers who comprise the Committee of Management. Our staff also play a integral part in assisting the committee to ensure the efficient management of the kindergarten on a day to day basis.
The Committee is elected annually at the Annual General Meeting held in early November. The Committee of Management is made up of an Executive Committee and General Members who meet monthly to deal with a range of matters that ensure the efficient operation of the kindergarten. Being on the committee is a very rewarding experience and many strong friendships have been forged between committee members over the years.
Social and fundraising activities are also organised by the Committee of Management throughout the year. These are a great way of getting together and meeting new people as well as raising money to ensure that the kindergarten is able to offer the best possible program and environment for the children.
The involvement and participation of families in the community life of the kindergarten is greatly appreciated, not only by the staff and committee, but also by the children who feel that the kindergarten is their special place outside home.
