Management of the Preschool
Hunters Hill Preschool is a community based, non-profit organisation and is an incorporated association.
The main sources of finance for the preschool are our fees and funding from the Department of Family and Community Services.
Fundraising by the parent Association provides further funds for equipment, which benefit present and future children attending the preschool.
The management of the preschool is the responsibility of the Executive Committee, which is comprised of parents of children attending the preschool. Parents are elected to the Executive Committee at the Annual General Meeting, which is held in the first term each year.
The preschool is a non-profit organisation, which is run as a small business. The Committee employs the staff, is responsible for the annual budget and generally manages, together with the staff, the day to day running of the preschool.
The Executive Committee operates in compliance with Family and Community Services regulations and “The Rules of Hunters Hill Preschool Incorporated”. A copy is available upon request.
The Executive Committee consists of the President (who holds the License to operate the preschool), Vice-President, Treasurer, Secretary, Assistant Secretary, Maintenance Convenor, Social Convenor and Extra Committee Member.
These positions are all voluntary and the preschool cannot operate without them being filled.
The Social Convenor co-ordinates a committee of approximately 10 parents to organise several functions each year. These functions allow parents to meet other parents and teachers, and raise funds to purchase new equipment to maintain the high standard of the preschool.
