About Us

We are a not-for-profit organisation, incorporated and run by an elected volunteer Management Committee of concerned, working parents and paid, experienced employees including a Centre Director, 1 Administration Staff, 3 Joint Coordinators/Educational Leaders, 1 Team Leader and qualified/experienced Educators. 

Our centre is located in the grounds of Gymea Bay Public School. We provide before and after school care for up to 180 children, as well as  pupil free day care and vacation care for up to 75 children.

Parent Management Committee

The Centre is run by an elected volunteer parent committee, who consist of:

Mark Badovinac - President

Liz Salvage - Vice President

Craig Manwarring - Treasurer

Jane Griskaitis- Secretary

Helen Vincin - Assistant Secretary/Assistant Treasurer

Taryn Fisher  - Public Officer

Supported by 9 Ordinary Members, including David Levitski who remains the Approved Provider

Without this Committee there can be no centre.  The centre has been incorporated in this way and cannot be run without the Management Committee.  This allows families to play an active part in the way the service is run & maintain a community focus.
A monthly parent meeting takes place at the Centre on the 2nd Wednesday of each month. Meetings are held at 6:30pm and notices and agendas of these meetings are available at the centre or via email. Drinks and nibbles are provided and children may attend and occupy themselves in the 2nd room at the centre but they will be unsupervisedWe encourage all stakeholders to attend these meetings.
