Our Governing Board

Families and whanau can be involved at Hutt City Kindergartens at many different levels - from helping during kindergarten sessions, to guiding and directing the organisation at Board level.


See how to get involved in kindergarten life


Our Governing Board has 7 elected family members from across our 19 Kindergartens.  We value their membership as it brings a strong family and whanau perspective to our Board. These members are joined by our General Manager, Senior Teaching Team Leader and two Staff Representatives.


This group meets monthly to oversee the quality of service being offered and to make sure that the needs of families are at the forefront of all decisions being made.  For information regarding visitors attending meetings please refer to the policy 1.210 Guidelines for Visitors at Board Meetings.
