We greatly value parents' input. That's why every location has a local parents' committee. In addition, Korein also has a central parents' committee.
Local parents' committee.
At least two parents per location are members of the local parents' committee. Members represent all parents at the location. The local parents' committee mainly focuses on the way things are going at the location. It meets about six times a year.
You can see whether your location has a parents' committee on your location's page. Are you interested in becoming a member? The location manager will be happy to tell you about the possibilities.
Central parents' committee.
Korein also has a central parents' committee, which can be reached via email@example.com.
The central parents' committee meets about eight times a year. Four of these meetings are with management.
Quite a few locations have issued the central parents' committee with an authorisation (=mandate). The local parents' committee uses this to give permission to the central parents' committee to provide management with advice, unsolicited or otherwise, on topics such as:
- General quality policy and pedagogical policy plan
- Nutritional matters
- Opening hours
- Policies relating to children's play and development activities
- Amendment of the complaints procedure
- Price changes
Parents' committee regulations.
Any agreements with the parents' committees have been recorded in our (central) parents' committee regulations (only available in Dutch). These regulations can also be found in the information folder at each location.
