our committee

The day to day management of Grange Road Kindergarten is run by a voluntary Committee of Management made up of current parents. Bayside City Council owns the property, with the 4 year old and 3 year old programs receiving 15 hours of  funding from the Department of Education and Training (DET). Please note fees apply to kinder programs over 15 hours per week and our extended care program.

The committee is elected by the parents at the Annual General Meeting which is usually held in November of each year. Meetings are held monthly (excluding January).  Please note that whilst the Committee is involved in the day-to-day management of the kindergarten, active and enthusiastic support from all our parents is necessary for the successful and smooth running of the kinder. Grange Road Kindergarten also employs a part time administrator and bookkeeper who oversees the day-to-day operations of the kindergarten. The administrator and bookkeeper are available by contacting the kindergarten directly by email –

Grange Road Kindergarten is registered as Children’s Services Centre Class 1 meeting the requirements of the Department of Education and Training (DET), the Children’s Services Regulations 2009, the Children’s Services Act 1996 and the policies and procedures of the service.
