Committee of Management

Co-op is a community-based not for profit service. This means that the parents of children attending Co-op provide the management for the centre. This is achieved by the election of a parent Committee of Management which functions like a board of directors. The role of the Committee is to develop policies and procedures, manage finances and support staff and families to ensure the smooth running of the centre.

The members (parents) elect 7 Directors to the Committee of Management, which meets monthly to ensure the ongoing operation of the centre. There are also a number of subcommittees that meet informally and less regularly. The ongoing involvement of parents on the committees ensures the success of Co-op.

The Committee employs a staff team headed by a Director who is responsible for the day-to-day operation of Co-op.

A co-operative management style reinforces our centre's policy of providing a caring community. By joining the co-operative, you have the opportunity to accept and demonstrate an involvement in your children'€™s wellbeing and to be partners with Co-op in providing quality care.

The Committee consists of the following roles: Chairperson, Secretary, Treasurer, Parent Liaison, Staff Liaison, Quality Improvement, Facilities and Fundraising.

Elections for office are held at the Annual General Meeting. Enquiries can be made to the Director or through current members of the Committee of Management. A list of current members and their contact details are displayed in the Co-op foyer. Meetings are held on the first Monday of each month.
