  • The Terry Tan Board of Directors consists of seven elected parent and community representatives who work together to manage the organization on behalf of the general membership.

    The Board develops policies, makes informed decisions in keeping with the centre’s by-laws and reviews its general operation.

    Board members meet a minimum of six times a year to set policies in accordance with the Province of Ontario Child Care and Early Years Act. Dates and times of Board meetings are posted at both Bloordale and Eatonville. All meetings are open to parents and staff.

    Each year, at the Annual General Meeting the Board of Directors for the following year is elected by the membership. Since the Directors elected at this meeting are responsible for the operation of the organization for the next year, we would like to emphasize the importance of parents attending the annual meeting. Each family that has a child/children enrolled at the centre for the 60 days prior to the Annual General Meeting are considered members and will have one vote at the meeting.

    Our by-laws state that the term of office for a Director is two years, with half of the Board rotating each year. The by-laws do allow for Directors to run for more than one term. Parents will be notified of upcoming parent vacancies on the Board through newsletters and on this site. Vacancies occurring on the Board of Directors during a term will be appointed by the Board for the balance of the term. Terry Tan Child Centre by-laws and policies are available to all parents upon request.
