Yarraleen Preschool is a community based, not-for-profit kindergarten, with all funds raised through fees and fundraising activities going back into the operating and capital costs of running the kindergarten.

In accordance with the preschool’s Constitution, committee members are elected by the users (parents) of the preschool. Victorian Government funding is conditional on the preschool having a full Committee of Management.

The Committee of Management is responsible for managing the preschool and is also the employer. As manager of the Preschool, the committee is responsible for making informed decisions about how the service will operate and for developing policies.

The committee will be well supported by the preschool’s director, administrator, and bookkeeper.

These roles/functions of the committee are crucial to Yarraleen’s continued success.
