Mitchelton Pre-Schooling Centre Inc is a community dedicated kindergarten affiliated with The Gowrie (Qld). MPC is an independent not-for-profit centre operated by a very enthusiastic team of staff members and a Management Committee. The annually elected Management Committee consists of parents whose children attend the Centre. This dedicated group of parents oversee the day-to-day and long term strategy of our centre.
Income is derived from Government subsidies and fees charged to parents. (Health Care Card holders pay little or no kindy fees due to generous concessions from the Queensland Government). Mitchelton Pre-Schooling Centre Inc. is licensed by the Office for Early Childhood Education and Care under the Child Care Act 2002 and Child Care Regulation 2003.
The National Quality Framework applies across Australia to all early childhood services. Each service develops a Quality Improvement Plan (QIP). MPC's QIP, which is accessible to all families, is collaboratively reviewed regularly. All services will be given a quality rating as part of an assessment program. MPC has not yet been assessed. The National Quality Standards, which inform the QIP, are divided into seven Quality Areas:
- Educational program and practice
- Children’s health and safety
- Physical environment
- Staffing arrangements
- Relationships with children
- Collaborative partnerships with families and communities
- Leadership and service management.
The Committee meets on a monthly basis and works closely with teaching and administrative staff. Please contact the committee members at firstname.lastname@example.org
