Highmount Preschool is a legally constituted body under the Incorporations Act 1981. We are a community based, not-for-profit kindergarten, with all funds raised through fees and fundraising activities going back into the operating and capital costs of running the kindergarten.

The Highmount Preschool Committee of Management is responsible for managing the preschool and is the employer of the staff. As manager of the Preschool, the committee is responsible for making informed decisions about how the service will operate and for developing policies.

In accordance with the Constitution of the Preschool, Committee members are elected by the users (parents) of the Preschool.
Victorian Government funding is conditional on the Pre-school having a full Committee of Management.

All roles / functions of the Committee are crucial to Highmount’s continued success. As a member of the Committee, you will enjoy the opportunity for community and social involvement as you join with other parents / guardians to promote and oversee Highmount’s operations.
