Kindy Management

Warwick Community Kindergarten Association Inc is a community kindergarten affiliated with The Gowrie (Qld). The Kindy is an independent, not for profit centre operated by a very dedicated group of staff and Management Committee formed from parents of the Centre. Income is obtained from Government subsidies and attendance fees.

The Centre is licensed by the Office for Early Childhood Education and Care under the Child Care Act 2002 and the Child Care Regulation 2003.

We are also guided by the National Quality Framework which has been developed in recent years as part of a national early childhood reform. The framework applies across Australia to different types of services which include kindergartens. All services will be given a quality rating as part of an assessment program (Warwick Community Kindergarten is yet to be rated). That National Quality Standard is divided into seven Quality Areas:

  1. Educational program and practice
  2. Children’s health and safety
  3. Physical environment
  4. Staffing arrangements
  5. Relationships with children
  6. Collaborative partnerships with families and communities
  7. Leadership and service management.

The Kindy is managed by a Management Committee which is elected each year at the Annual General Meeting held in February. The committee meets monthly, working closely with teaching and administrative staff. You can contact committee members via [email protected]
