Committee of Management

Like most other Victorian kindergartens, we are an Incorporated Association. We have a Constitution that outlines how we operate and we have over 30 policies and procedures that provide guidance to all aspects of the preschool’s operations.

What Does The Committee Do?

Hurlingham Preschool is run by a Committee of Management drawn from volunteer parents. Committee meetings take place at kinder twice a term, when current events and requirements are discussed. The Committee is responsible for every area of the Preschool’s operation – things like financial management, employing, paying, managing and recruiting staff, timetabling, maintenance, and ensuring the long term stability of the Preschool.

Unlike some Preschools, however, the load is shared. We are very fortunate to have the services of an Administrator and an Operations Manager, who manage many of the daily functions of the Preschool’s running and takes an enormous weight off the Committee. For this reason, involvement on Committee is not as daunting as at some preschools. Many hands make light work, so please consider participation on Committee – you would be warmly welcomed!
