The Board of Directors is the decision making body of Nanabijou Childcare Centre and carries the legal responsibility of all Centre operations. As a non-profit organization, the parents of every child enrolled become voting members who, together, elect mainly from amongst themselves, a Board of Directors to represent their interest. Special talents or experience are not necessary; any contribution would be of benefit to the centre.
In January of every year the Director and members begin contacting parent users to seek out those who may be interested in a position on the Board of Directors. New members are voted in at our Annual General Meeting, normally held in March or April of each year.
The four main areas on which the Board of Directors concentrates its efforts are: Finance Management, Employee Relations, Policy Development and Review, and Program Evaluation. Information about the Board responsibilities and duties can be made available for your perusal.
Joining our Board of Directors ensures parent input in the legal, goal setting and operational aspects of our organization.
The Board of Directors of Nanabijou Childcare Centre requires a membership of nine and the licensing of our centre is dependent upon the participation of a full membership. Therefore, your commitment to attend the monthly Board meetings and be part of the decision making team which guides and supports the staff will ensure that quality childcare is always a reality at Nanabijou Childcare Centre.
