Our Board of Directors consists of dedicated parents and community members who volunteer their time and expertise for the betterment of St. Gabriel Child Care Centres. The Board’s mandate is to make sound business decisions for the whole organization while governing the corporation (namely St. Gabriel Child Care Centres). The Board manages the financial and business affairs of the organization with decision made in the best interest of the children attending the programs. The Board welcomes interested parents to come forward to become members and/or participate as a guest in the monthly meetings. While becoming a member involves a few hours of personal time, the personal satisfaction of playing an active role in your child’s development is well worth the effort.
Our Board of Directors meets once a month for approximately 2-3 hours at a time. Committee initiatives may require additional hours per month. There is ongoing support and resources available to both our new and seasoned Board members.
There is a real sense of community at St. Gabriel Centre Care Centres amongst the staff, the board and the families.

“Impressed by the quality of daycare service provided by St. Gabriel Childcare Centres and wanted to help the Centres keep up with their healthy, fun, educational programs, I decided to join the Board of Directors in 2017. I have had a chance to work with an amazing team of dedicated parents as well as hard-working staff here. My professional skills such as communication, organization, management have been improved tremendously and I feel that my personal goal to support my dear daughter with utmost efforts for her Daycare has been accomplished. I love St. Gabriel Childcare Centres and am proud of being a member of this place.”
