Information to sign up for volunteer positions will be communicated at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) which takes place in June prior to the school year. All families must attend this meeting or send a representative in their place. Board elections also occur at the AGM. Parents are asked to familiarize themselves with Board and Volunteer roles prior to attending the AGM. Please refer to Appendix A for a description of the Board and Appendix B for Volunteer positions in the Parent Handbook.
As a cooperatively run organization, our playschool requires each family to fill one volunteer position per child registered. Families with multiple students in the program will need to take on multiple volunteers roles.
Failure to fulfill volunteer duties will result in the withdrawal of Volunteer Commitment deposits.
Parents are asked to notify the Volunteer Coordinator in the event of extended absences (i.e., more than two weeks). They are also asked to make arrangements for alternative duty dates or to find a replacement in the event that these absences conflict with their volunteer duties.
