Volunteer Board of Directors   Guelph 
Wellington Early Learning Centres
WELC is located inside Taylor Evans Public School, but meetings are currently being held via zoom
Our Board of Directors is a mix of parents with children in the program, and community members. Board meetings are once per month, and we try to keep them informal and friendly. If you have been to meetings for other boards, with unions, etc. they would have been of a much more formal nature, but as we are focused on the good of the children, it allows us to have a more relaxed atmosphere in our meetings.  
 
The role of the board is to govern and assist with policy and overall direction of the centre. Some responsibilities may include, assisting with financials, assisting with advertising, fundraising, policy review. We do not, as a rule, get involved with the day to day operation of the centre. We are, however, available to the supervisor as a resource for consultation and advice. All of our meetings are currently being held via Zoom.
