Role of the Board
The Westminster Child Care Center Board of Directors meets monthly to set policy for the Center, provide management and financial oversight, and approve the annual budget. These activities are executed in the spirit of the mission of the Center.

The Board is not responsible for running the day-to-day operations of the Center. The Board is also not involved in individual personnel decisions except as outlined in the Center’s Personnel Policy.

Rewards of Serving on the WCCC Board of Directors
Serving as a board member is a unique opportunity to impact the lives of children in a positive way. Board members lend their expertise and talents to support the continued excellence of the Center, which in turn supports the greater Charlottesville community. Board membership expands the Center’s professional resources and can be a highly rewarding and satisfying experience.


Parent Involvement is Welcome!  Individuals may choose to serve on the Fundraising and/or Events Committees without joining the Board of Directors.  These volunteers are referred to as "Community Members" and their valuable contributions of time and energy help us create successful school-wide events that build community among our families and raise funds for our non-profit program.

If you’d like to provide feedback or volunteer for any events, please contact any board member.
