Pennant Hills War Memorial Children’s Centre is an incorporated association by the Director, Staff and a Management Committee made up of parents from the Preschool.
The Management Committee is an elected parent-based committee working in conjunction with the Director to administer the Preschool. The Annual General Meeting is held in February or March each year and the Management Committee, elected at the AGM, hold monthly meetings during the year.
Each family attending the preschool is automatically a member of the association as a $16.50 membership fee is included in your First Term fees (in accordance with the Preschool’s Rules of Association). This membership entitles all parents to stand for positions on the Management Committee and/or the Parents Club at the Annual General Meeting held each February/March.
The Management Committee oversees the running of the Preschool and is the licensee for the service. All parents have valuable knowledge, experience and skills to contribute and they ensure that the Preschool is run effectively and that the needs of the families associated with the preschool are continually met.
Committee members attend a monthly meeting and take an active part in setting, implementing and achieving the Committee goals for the year.
The Parents’ Club organises social functions and fund raising during the year. There are parent representatives for each class who assist with the coordination of these activities.
As a community based Preschool, we welcome any contribution that parents are able to make and encourage families to be active participants in the preschool community.
