Management Committee

The Centre is managed by a committee of parents, staff and local community representatives. Members are elected each year at the Annual General Meeting. Parent based management provides for families to be involved in an advisory, consultative and decision making capacity. The success of the centre is therefore very much dependent on the involvement of parent users.

The members of the committee are the Executive Committee (consisting of Chairperson, Treasurer and Secretary), parent representatives, the Director and staff representative.

The Management Committee aims to be involved in the development and implementation of policies which reflect a clear statement of the Centre philosophy, to be mutually supportive, to manage funds, to oversee programming and to maintain equipment.

The Management Committee actively encourages families to provide feedback on any centre policies or significant procedures. The Director or Chairperson or other member of the Management Committee is available to assist in the resolution of any queries, grievances or complaints.

Management meetings are held monthly, the agenda displayed on the notice board in the Centre’s foyer, together with a copy of the minutes of the latest meeting. A list of the Management Committee members is also displayed. A copy of the Centre’s Constitution is made available at the Annual General Meetings, and on request.
