Management Committee

West Hawthorn Pre-school is an Incorporated Association which all parents are automatically members of on payment of fees.

Legally, the kindergarten must have a Committee of Management. Our committee is a volunteer organisation, made up of 12-20 parents and interested community members. These are elected at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) in November each year.

Our current Committee Members list can be found here.
