As a community-based organisation the day-to-day operation of the centre is conducted by the Director. A Management Committee, consisting of parents elected at the Annual General Meeting each year, is responsible for the overall Governance of the Preschool. General Meetings are held regularly throughout the year and we encourage families to attend and get involved. Gumnut is registered as an Incorporated Association under the Associations Incorporation Act, 1984. As part of the enrolment process, one parent / guardian from each family is required to become a member of the Association.
Gumnut has developed a comprehensive set of policies, which guide our everyday practices in line with the National Law and Education and Care Regulations. These policies are available to parents who also have the opportunity to be involved in their review.
At Gumnut we provide an inclusive play-based program which reflects the needs, interests and cultures of the children attending. We offer new and challenging experiences in both the indoor and outdoor environments which are designed to foster confidence, relationships and elevate children’s learning. Our curriculum aligns with our Key Values and Philosophy and is guided by the practices, principles and learning outcomes of the Early Years Learning Framework.
