Clifton Street Children’s Centre is a community run centre and operates as a not for profit organisation ensuring any profits are put back into improving the centre’s facilities for our children. It is an incorporated association bound by a constitution and governed by a Committee of Management to oversee operations, and guide and support the centre manager and staff in their decisions. Our committee of management consists of parent volunteers.

As a not for profit we depend on our families and community to become involved in any way they can to support the centre, be it volunteering on the committee, attending working bees, or supporting the educational programs with your special hobbies, interest and skills.

How to join the Committee of Management
Clifton Street Parents and Families are actively encouraged to share their skills, knowledge and culture and become involved in any way that they can. Being on the committee of management is a great way to meet many other families in the area and take part in the Clifton Street community, while working together with the centre staff to create a wonderful learning and nurturing experience for our children.

The various sub-committees organise and publicise events and fundraising, write and update policies, co-ordinate building and grounds improvements, and oversee strategic management of the centre.

There are a number of ways that you could join the committee of management; nominations for positions are typically taken at the AGM (normally held around September/October) for parents to join the committee of management for the following year, although any families, especially those new to the centre each January, are welcome to get involved in some capacity at any time.

If you are unsure if you want to join a sub-committee you are welcome to just become a general member and help out where you can. If you are unable to attend monthly committee meetings you are also welcome to join a sub-committee but not be formally part of the committee of management.

Anyone interested in joining the committee of management, please talk to our centre manager Leanne or any of the committee members listed above.
