At Tarralla Kindergarten we have a highly skilled, and extremely dedicated team of teachers and educators.

However, they cannot operate the kindergarten alone. As a not-for profit Incorporated Association, Tarralla Kindergarten is managed by a Committee of Management, which is supported by an Operational Sub-committee.

The Committee of Management and Operational Sub-committee positions are held by volunteer parents and community members who are willing to give some of their time to help Tarralla Kindergarten run smoothly.

Prior experience on a board or committee is not required. Information to fulfil any role is provided, so all you need is a willingness to give your time and the enthusiasm to become part of the team that keeps Tarralla Kindergarten operating effectively.

Committee of Management and Operations Sub-committee members are voted in at the Annual General Meeting (AGM), held around October each year. Positions are held for a period of 12 months, commencing 1 February each year.

The Committee of Management is responsible for the day-to-day affairs of Tarralla Kindergarten.

The Committee of Management work alongside our dedicated teachers and educators, as the Approved Provider of the kindergarten, to provide a high-quality educational program, ensure the legal and regulatory obligations of the kindergarten are met, and maintain the ongoing financial viability of the kindergarten.
