Home   Policies


A policy is an agreed set of decisions with a common purpose that provides information about what we do/do not do and, in some cases, what we cannot do. Hurlingham Pre-School (HPS) is governed by a number of policies and it is the responsibility of the Committee of Management (COM) to ensure that these policies:

  • meet the needs of the staff, parents/guardians, committee, children and community;
  • reflect both the values and beliefs of HPS and current thinking; and
  • are relevant in terms of current laws, legislation and regulations.

These policies are therefore regularly reviewed and updated by the COM to ensure that HPS:

  • meets all legislative & regulatory requirements;
  • reflects best practice in the early childhood sector; and
  • reflects changes in the early childhood sector such as the introduction of the information technology.

A complete set of our policies are located in the foyer of the kindergarten and can be accessed by parents/guardians at any time.
