Kapooka Early Childhood Centre is an incorporated body, managed by a voluntary Management Committee. These parents and community members work closely with our Centre Director, educators, ancillary staff, families, governing bodies and community to provide our wonderful preschool. The Management Committee is responsible for the overall operation of the preschool service, ensuring the Centre complies with the requisite laws and regulations.

Our Annual General Meeting (AGM) is held in February each year.

The Management Committee consists of the:

  •  President
  •  Vice President
  •  Treasurer
  •  Vice Treasurer
  •  Secretary
  •  Vice Secretary
  •  3 Ordinary Members (Minimum)

The Committee meets eight times per year on the 4th & 8th Monday of each Term. These meetings are held at the preschool or the Kapooka Community Centre at 9.30am.

We encourage parents to join our Committee and become an active member in the management of our Centre.  It is an ideal opportunity to ‘meet and greet’ with other parents, whilst contributing to the day to day operation of your child's Preschool. Participating on the committee is a satisfying experience and allows individuals to gain business management skills in a non-profit organisation; share ideas and resources; support the educators and staff; assist to improve the service quality; participate in fundraising and enjoy meeting with other parents on a regular basis.

The Preschool has put together a “Committee Handbook” which provides a detailed overview of member’s roles and responsibilities and assists to familiarize parents with governance of our Centre.

Being an active member of the Committee can be a very rewarding experience for yourself, our preschool children and our community.
