OPEN COMMITTEE OF MANAGEMENT POSITIONS for 2023
Building and Maintenance Officer
The role of Building and Maintenance is to liaise with Dee and Georgie regarding general maintenance jobs around the kinder and coordinate a parent working bee each term at the kinder.
Quality Improvement Plan (QIP) Coordinator
The QIP Coordinator works with the teaching team to ensure that there is a continuous process of quality improvement planning and implementation at Hurlingham Preschool and that the wider preschool community is involved in the process.
It is crucial we have sufficient members to be able to operate our kinder under our Constitution and The Associations Incorporation Reform Act 2012, The Education and Care Services National Law Act 2010, The Education and Care Services National Regulations 2011 as well as being accountable to Consumer Affairs Victoria, ACEQUA and the Department of Education and Training.
Becoming a committee member is such a fantastic way to get involved in the kinder community and meet new families and parents. If you are interested in nominating for one of these positions, please email Georgie.
We absolutely love Hurlingham – the teachers and staff are wonderful and the newly renovated facilities, particularly the playground, are incredible. From a mud kitchen through to swings, cubbies and a bike track – there is so much to encourage active and imaginative play. Our daughter adores the outdoor space and it’s a real feature! As newcomers to the area, Hurlingham has been also been so welcoming and helped us find our feet in the community. There are lots of parent get-togethers and support – you can establish some lifelong friendships. We highly recommend Hurlingham – we’ve been so lucky to be a part of it!
We’re loving our wonderful new facilities at Hurlingham Preschool. The design was a collaboration of stakeholders so it is a thoughtful and purpose built service that engages children, families and staff, the moment they walk through the front doors. From the earthy colour scheme to the abundance of natural light and the dynamic playground with water pump, creek bed, sandpit and digging patch, we feel we are a seamless part of Hurlingham Park. We greatly appreciate the assistance of Bayside City Council and the Victorian State Government to ensure Hurlingham Preschool is well suited to providing a high standard of early years learning for our Brighton East community for many years to come.
We are so happy with our choice of preschool for our daughter. Hurlingham was our first preference for preschool, we were so eager to enrol our daughter – the beautiful new facilities, friendly and welcoming teachers and staff and supportive and connected community made it an easy choice. Our daughter thoroughly enjoyed the 3 year old program and is absolutely thriving in the 4 year old group this year. She has made some wonderful friends and happily bounces through the door when she arrives. We couldn’t have hoped for a better start to our daughters education.
Hurlingham did an amazing job this year with remote online learning. The kinder provided individual packs with all required for the week and the Webex meeting three times a week was a great way for children to interact, share their work and to still feel they are apart of a Hurlingham community. This also gave the teachers the opportunity to explain each activity and clarify any concerns individuals may have had. I found that learning from home allowed me as a parent to push my child’s learning even further and the kinder welcomed that with open arms.
Huge appreciation for running the online learning (as some kinders did not provide this).
We have had the best year with the Hurlingham community, cannot speak highly enough of everyone. Cannot wait for 2022 and 2023. Thank you for everything.
Thank you for the great job you are all doing. We absolutely love Hurlingham Kinder – a great Kinder!
My child has loved this year despite the disruptions which is testament to all the effort of the educators and kinder community. Well done.
Our family loved our experience with Hurlingham this year. Specially Dee, Carole, Chris and Pam has been exceptional considering the difficult situation we have faced this year. We have loved every bit of of being part of Hurlingham this year. Specially the nurturing Dee has provided to all the kids has been a blessing and we can’t thank her and all the staff enough. We will be moving ahead for Prep next year as that’s the natural course of action but we are really sad to leave such a safe and nurturing space. Lots of best wishes from us!
It’s a lovely preschool, and very well run. Everyone is doing a great job!
