Board of Directors
Halton Hills Child Care Centre is a non-profit organization, governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. The Board is comprised of a minimum of five members, with four Executive positions; Chair, Vice-Chair, Secretary and Treasurer. The Board works as a team, drawing on the individual skills and abilities of its members to help keep the Centre on a straight path to success. Every decision made by the Board of Directors and every action taken by the teachers and staff shall reflect the intent of our Mission Statement.
To provide a safe, clean, and nurturing environment where all of the children can learn, have fun, and grow to their fullest potential.
As a non-profit organization, any recipient of service (parents or guardians of a child) is considered a “member”. Members are eligible to vote to elect the Board of Directors at the Annual General Meeting, usually held in April. Any member is eligible for nomination/election and past experience on a Board is not mandatory. The time commitment is 1-2 hours per month on average, with some positions requiring a little more time. The board meets once monthly from September through June. Board members are covered under the appropriate insurance and new members receive orientation and training. All Board members are required to sign and adhere to a Statement of Confidentiality.
Participation on the Board is a gratifying experience. It is an opportunity for personal growth and development, and a chance to contribute to the Centre.
