Board of Directors

Supportive Governance

Our Board of Directors is the governing body of Beaufort Children’s Centre and individuals who sit on the board are responsible for overseeing our organization’s activities. We are grateful to have an active and supportive board where each member is proud of what they do and what they stand for.

Beaufort Child Care Society

The Beaufort Child Care Society operates Beaufort Children’s Centre. This is a non-profit Society with a Board of Directors made up of parents from Beaufort Children’s Centre, representatives from North Island College, and individuals from the community.

An annual fee of $24.00 is required of each family using the Centre as membership in the Beaufort Child Care Society. This is billed monthly ($2/month) as part of your monthly child care fee.
