Highmount Preschool is a legally constituted body under the Associations Incorporation Reform Act 2012. We are a community-based, not-for-profit kindergarten, with all funds raised through fees, fundraising initiatives and levies going back into the operational costs of running the kindergarten.

Highmount Preschool is managed and maintained by a voluntary Committee of Management (CoM) who are elected at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) to represent and act on behalf of the kindergarten community. The CoM is responsible for the management of the kindergarten and upholding the Rules of the Association, Education and Care Services National Law Act 2010, and the Education and Care Services National Regulations.

Without a Committee of Management, Highmount Preschool would not satisfy minimum obligations as an “Incorporated Association” and therefore be unable to operate as a legal entity.

The Committee conducts meetings once a month throughout the year and relies on parents to volunteer their time, enthusiasm, skills and energy to fill the Committee roles.

If you would like to know more about becoming a Committee member and what is involved, please don’t hesitate to contact the current President Lou Skepper at president@highmountpreschool.org.au
