As a not-for-profit, community-based service, Cumnock Village Preschool is run by an elected Management Committee.
The Management Committee, along with the Director, are responsible for the strategic management of the Preschool and are accountable to members (all carers of enrolled children are members of Cumnock Village Preschool) for the performance of the preschool.
The Management Committee is also accountable to the statutory and regulatory authorities for the financial and legal obligations of the Preschool.
The Management Committee are elected by the parent body at an Annual General Meeting, which is held in March each year. This is when the Executive Committee Members are elected. Attendance at such meetings or taking a role on the committee gives parents an opportunity to meet new people and extend their life skills and experiences in helping run the preschool.
Confidentiality is a necessity if you wish to become a committee member.

Cumnock Village Preschool is government funded, but this funding does not fully cover the running costs of the Preschool, therefore Fundraising is fundamental to Preschool.
The primary aim of the committee is to raise funds for the preschool to facilitate the purchase of new resources or improvements to our indoor and outdoor learning environment as well creating social events for our families.
We encourage parents to participate in all fundraising projects for the preschool and to bring family and friends along to the functions as the funds raised directly benefit all children attending preschool.
