Parental Involvement

As a community based, not-for-profit Preschool, it requires and highly values the involvement of its parent community. There are many ways to get involved which can enrich the Preschool experience for both you and your child.

The Preschool welcomes and needs the participation of all parents in a variety of ways: committee involvement, our parent participation program in the classroom, working bees, and roles as class parents. Our Preschool community is underpinned by a great sense of friendship and partnerships which are strengthened through various casual and more formal social and fundraising events.

Management Committee

 

The management of the Preschool is overseen by the Management Committee. The members of the Committee are elected annually by the members of Willoughby Community Preschool Inc. in accordance with the Rules, and the Committee is accountable to the members of Willoughby Community Preschool Inc for:

  • the sustainability and relevance of the Preschool; and

  • the ongoing operation and performance of the Preschool.

The Management Committee will direct its activities towards achieving the Preschool’s goals and implementing its Quality Improvement Plan by guiding and monitoring the Preschool’s business and affairs in line with the objects set out in the Rules and in accordance with the Preschool’s philosophy.

In carrying out its responsibilities, the Management Committee undertakes to maximise the value and contribution of the Preschool to the local community, and to serve the interests of the Preschool’s members, employees and families and children attending the Preschool.  In serving these interests there is an implicit understanding that the rights of the child are of fundamental importance in all decision-making.
