One of the many benefits of a community-based childcare centre is the opportunity for parents and staff to govern the Centre together.
At each Annual General Meeting (AGM) (next AGM September 5, 2017), a committee is elected comprising of parents, staff, administration officer and the Director of the Centre.
The Governing Council’s role is described as ‘governance’ – providing overall direction of the affairs of the Centre and monitoring performance.
The Committee is accountable to the members (parents and staff), who vote them in, and to authorities regarding corporate affairs, licensing, etc. The Committee may also take on some more ‘hands on’ tasks, such as working bees and fund raisers.
