Lalor Park Preschool is a community-based, non-profit organisation. It is managed by a Committee of families and members of the wider community who are elected annually at the Annual General Meeting.
The Committee consists of 7 members, in the following positions:
- Vice President
- 3 Ordinary members
The Management Committee and Preschool’s Nominated Supervisor meet regularly and, in conjunction with the staff team, are responsible for the overall operation of the Preschool. All families and community members of the Association are eligible to be elected onto the Committee. We encourage anyone who is interested to join the Committee, as it provides an opportunity to become more involved in decision making about your child’s care and education and develop a deeper understanding of the importance of the early years in children’s learning and development. The Committee is very relaxed and family friendly, and sometimes organised to meet at the local coffee shop!
The Preschool holds more formal General Meetings for families, staff and other interested persons each term. Meetings are held at the Preschool and information on the Preschool’s operation is presented. Families are strongly encouraged to attend these meetings as it their main opportunity to become involved in the running of the Preschool.
The Preschool maintains a current Quality Improvement Plan (QIP) that all children, families, staff, Committee members and members of the community can contribute to, in order to continually improve our service to families as well as our local and wider community.
