We look forward to your involvement in your child’s year at preschool. You are welcome to spend time during any sessions with us.
You can be involved through:
- Talking with children about what they are doing, reading to them, playing board games and supporting them to use the computer etc.
- Sharing your skills and resources for example, cooking or gardening with the children, coming into the centre to talk about your hobby or occupation or playing a musical instrument etc.
- Sharing you cultural heritage and celebrating festivals and celebrations with us.
- Joining the Governing Council
- Assisting with fundraising.
- Helping children exchange library books.
- Attending parent meetings and open nights.
- Providing resources relevant to the Educational Program.
- Assisting with cleaning up at the end of the session e.g.
washing down tables and easels , putting chairs up at
the end of the day, packing up outdoor equipment,
sweeping and raking outdoor areas and helping with dishes.
- Taking a turn to assist us in the laundering of smocks and dress-up clothing. The roster for this is on the whiteboard near the entry to the preschool.
Governing Council is made up of interested parents who meet twice a term to assist in the smooth running of the centre.
The Governing Council works together with staff to:
- develop and discuss site improvement plans
- develop and monitor strategic directions of the centre and allocate finances so that the directions and outcomes for the centre are achieved.
Social networks develop within the centre’s community when parents participate on the Governing Council together with the planned social functions and fundraising events.
If you are interested in joining this Governing Council and would like to become more involved in your child’s preschool year please see staff or join us for one of our meetings which are always advertised.
