Our Kindergarten belongs to our Community

In 1996, after many years of being Council operated, the Kindergarten was placed under parent Committee of Management.

Each year the Kindergarten is governed by a Committee comprised of parents who work in partnership with staff to manage the Centre and plan for our future.  

Our partnership with parents in providing good governance at the Kindergarten helps connect us to our community and ensures the views and values of families and children are always considered when making decisions. 

Provision of good governance is a priority at Albert Park Pre-School in our aim to contribute to the best possible outcomes for children and families. This commitment is embodied in our Statement of Good Governance
