As a community based organisation, the day to day operation of the Kindy is conducted by the Co-Directors. A Management Committee, consisting of parents elected at the AGM each year is responsible for the overall management of the Kindergarten. Committee Meetings are held regularly throughout the year. We encourage all parents to get involved in the Kindergarten and welcome all those willing to join the committee, it is an enriching and worthwhile experience for both you and your child.
Our Kindergarten operates as a single unit. Our affiliation with C&K means that our facilities, equipment and education are provided above and beyond the minimum requirements. Licensing under the Child Care Regulations Act (1991) means these necessities are maintained to a high standard, with re licensing taking place every two years. The national body governing the legislative framework, ACECQA, assessed Tewantin Community Kindergarten in April 2014 and we were very proud to receive an overall rating of ‘Exceeding National Quality Standard’.
Annual government grants provide a percentage of the educator’s salaries but the Kindergarten has survived because of the hard work of parents and interested members of the community. With parent and community support, the Tewantin Kindergarten will continue to function as a non-profit, community Kindy offering quality early childhood education and facilities.
