Yarraleen Preschool, a not-for-profit, community-based kindergarten, reinvests all proceeds from fees and fundraising directly into its operational and capital expenses. The preschool operates under a Constitution that mandates the election of committee members by the parents, who are the preschool’s users. This structure ensures that Yarraleen meets the conditions for receiving Victorian Government funding, which requires a fully appointed Committee of Management.

This Committee of Management plays a pivotal role in overseeing the preschool’s operations and serves as the official employer. Tasked with making strategic decisions regarding the preschool’s management and policy development, the committee is essential for the preschool’s successful operation.

To support these responsibilities, the committee has the backing of the preschool’s director, administrator, and bookkeeper, ensuring a well-rounded and efficient governance structure. This collaborative approach is fundamental to sustaining Yarraleen Preschool’s excellence and community service.

At Yarraleen, we’re excited to foster a vibrant and engaging committee that builds a tight-knit community where our children can flourish. Our activities range from working bees, Halloween celebrations to arranging large scale fundraising events such as the Bunnings Sausage Sizzle!

Together, we’re dedicated to cultivating a community spirit at Yarraleen and eagerly anticipate welcoming you aboard!
