Our Board

Dedicated, Driven Volunteers

The Board of Directors for the Schoolhouse Playcare Centre of Lakehead Inc. is all volunteer members who are dedicated to the quality care and education that the centre provides.

The board meets ten times a year to discuss issues directly involving the centers. Each board member is responsible for attending these meetings and assigned a committee head. The committee head is responsible for canvassing interested parents to help on sub-committees. The sub-committees will assist with projects that the centre is involved in.

The board members are involved in the overall operation of the centres, the business, fundraising, assisting in the hiring of staff, future goals and objectives and other pertinent areas.

The Annual General Meeting is held in the fall and notification will go out in advance for all members and families. 

Annual General Meeting will be held at 627 Grey Street (our Grey St. location) on Wednesday, October 19th, 2016 at 7:00 p.m.
