The committee is elected by the parents at the Annual General Meeting which is usually held in November of each year.

Meetings are held monthly (excluding January).  Please note that whilst the Committee is involved in the day-to-day management of the kindergarten, active and enthusiastic support from all our parents is necessary for the successful and smooth running of the Kinder.
