St Thomas Preschool Limited is a not-for-profit, community-based preschool. It relies on NSW Government funding and fees paid by parents to cover its operating expenses.
The Preschool is governed by a volunteer Management Committee that consists of five members. The Committee is appointed by the Senior Minister of St Thomas’ Church North Sydney. There are also two parents representatives and two church representatives. The Preschool Director, Julie Irving , reports to the Committee and attends all Committee meetings.
With the exception of the daily operations and the educational curriculum, which are the Director’s responsibility, the Committee has responsibility for managing all other areas of the Preschool including governance, financial management, appointment of staff and setting the direction of the Preschool. The Committee meets bi-monthly and the Annual General Meeting is held each year in March.
