The Board of Directors are parent volunteers responsible for ensuring fiscal accountability, providing guidance to staff, engaging and communicating with preschool parents, recruiting new families and staff as needed, setting goals for the school year, and seeking ways to improve the operation of the preschool. Questions and suggestions are welcomed by the Board and can be communicated at a Board meeting or through a member of the Board. Members of the Board are appointed in the Spring semester to serve the following school year.
