National Quality Standard, Quality Area 7: Leadership and Service Management

Definitions:

Governance: The process by which organisations are directed, controlled and held to account. It encompasses authority, accountability, stewardship, leadership, directions and control exercised in the organisation (Australian National Audit Office, 1999).

Background

The governance of an organisation is concerned with the systems and processes that ensure the overall direction, effectiveness, supervision and accountability of a service.

Under the National Law and National Regulations, early childhood services are required to have policies and procedures in place relating to the governance and management of the service.

One World Children’s Centre is the registered business name of the company One World for Children Pty Ltd (ACN 076 297 400). One World for Children has been operating as a family owned business since 1997.

The company has two directors, Karyn Connors, Managing Director, and her father Lyle Connors, Services Manager

Karyn Connors is a qualified early childhood professional with an Associate Diploma in Social Science (Child Care) and a Certificate IV in Workplace Training. She has been working in the early childhood field for a period spanning more than two decades.

Over these years she has been a director of both a local government child care centre, and a TAFE child care centre.  In addition to this, Karyn has been engaged in consultancy work and other projects relating to the provision of children and family services. She has a broad knowledge and valuable experience with all aspects of child care and business management, including administration and financial management, human resources and development and quality improvement.

Lyle Connors has had 45 years of work experience in the food industry, of which 27 years has been in managerial positions.

Of major significance is his experience as Food Manager with Myer Geelong, from 1966 through to 1985. During this time Lyle was responsible for the overall operations of the departments which included grocery outlet, restaurant, butcher, bakery, take-a-way food and delicatessen.

Lyle’s expertise in management and service delivery is reflected in the smooth day to day operation of the Centre including overseeing the laundry service, cleaning, grounds maintenance, security, and attending to the general service needs of the Centre.

Management Team

One World Children’s Centre works on a Management team approach. The Management Team is made up of the Managing Directors, General Manager, Senior Manager, Director and our Centre Co-Ordinator.

These managers meet monthly and as necessary  to ensure that the channels of communication are kept open that the centre provides the highest care, education programs and services to ensure the viability of the service.

All members of the Management Team who gain access to confidential, commercially-sensitive and other information of a similar nature, shall not disclose that information to anyone unless the disclosure of such information is required by law.
