The Centre is operated by a Parent Committee consisting of current users of the service who are elected yearly at the Annual General Meeting. The following positions are held:

  • President
  • Vice President

All parents are encouraged to become more actively involved in the Centre’s operation through regular meetings. Clovelly Child Care actively seeks a closer liaison between staff and parents and recognises the benefits of such a union. Parents are also encouraged to be active participants in other committees.
